YESCO Expands Sign & Lighting Business Through Franchising

A YESCO franchise is an exclusive opportunity, awarded to individuals with a proven track record of great customer service, dependable quality and uncompromising integrity.

Since 1920 the people of YESCO have set the standard for quality, innovation and customer service in the electric sign and lighting industry.  With a nearly 100-year history of sign and lighting service, YESCO is now franchising its service and repair system to qualified individuals throughout the country.

An innovative company from the beginning, YESCO has experienced many milestones in its history. In Las Vegas alone, YESCO installed the first of the “Las Vegas Neon Spectaculars” at the Boulder Club in 1945. In 1980 YESCO used helicopter aid to install the tallest freestanding sign of its time at the Sahara Hotel and Casino. And in 2005 YESCO introduced the world’s first “moving eraser” on the Wynn Las Vegas message center.

But YESCO’s innovations are not limited to Las Vegas. The company completed the sign package for the world-famous Disney World Epcot Center in Orlando in 1982, created the stunning chandelier for the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh in 2009 and provided the iconic Olympic rings that lit up the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

YESCO is a family-owned provider of a full spectrum of sign and lighting products and services. YESCO designs, builds and installs custom signs of all types and sizes: from simple wayfinding plaques to towering, spectacular displays. As a full-service sign company, YESCO also services and repairs all types of signs and lighting including highway billboards, digital message centers, storefront lettering and parking lot lights. YESCO franchises will be focused on YESCO’s service and repair system, giving franchisees access to a national network of sign and lighting service opportunities.

YESCO franchises will be available in areas not currently served by YESCO, giving those businesses outside the YESCO footprint access to tried and true sign services. To maintain the quality and friendly service YESCO customers expect, owning and operating a YESCO franchise is an exclusive opportunity, awarded to individuals with a proven track record of great customer service, dependable quality and uncompromising integrity. The opportunity to own and operate a YESCO franchise is not limited to people with a background in the sign industry. Investors with or without sign experience will be attracted to YESCO’s proven business model. Existing sign companies wanting to join YESCO’s team will benefit from YESCO’s size, pricing and reputation.

In addition to being a part of the nationally known and respected YESCO brand, YESCO franchisees will be given the tools and training required to run a successful sign service business. Training courses will be offered to ensure that franchisees know the YESCO system and can implement it in their territory.  Franchisees will also have access to customers included in the YESCO National Accounts program, a network of national retailers. Franchisees will tap into YESCO’s buying power, which will allow them to purchase parts and supplies at prices well below those offered to others. This buying power gives YESCO franchisees significant advantages when bidding for energy-efficient retrofit lighting projects. Franchisees will also enjoy the use of YESCO’s proprietary software solutions which have been exclusively designed and engineered for the sign and lighting service business.  (5.30.11)
