Published Monday, February 8, 2016

Local sign and visual graphics provider FASTSIGNS® of Appleton is ranked the No. 3 center out of more than 600 locations worldwide and received multiple recognitions at the 2016 FASTSIGNS International Convention, which was recently held in Orlando, Florida.

The locally owned and operated business received the Sales Achievement Award for Highest Volume Center, which recognizes the top five centers in the country with the highest total sales between Oct. 1, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015, and the CEO Circle Award, which recognizes the top 25 centers in the U.S. and Canada for sales volume. FASTSIGNS of Appleton was also named a runner-up for the 2015 Comprehensive Customer Solutions Awards for the variety of outstanding signs and visual graphics the team provided Plexus Corp. to brand the company’s facilities.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a top performing center and these awards acclaim all of our team’s hard work and positive contributions in our community,” said Doug Brauer, who owns FASTSIGNS of Appleton with his wife, Linda. “We thank our customers for their support and trust and look forward to continuing to help local businesses and organizations tell their story using comprehensive signs, visual graphics and creative marketing solutions.”

In addition, Brauer received the Sales Achievement Award for Multiple-Center Sales, which recognizes the franchisee who owns more than one center and achieved the highest total sales. Brauer also owns FASTSIGNS of Green Bay, which he acquired in 2012. Both of his centers collectively achieved over $4 million.
