Signarama & Fully Promoted Franchisees Named “Franchisees of the Year”

WEST PALM BEACH, FL, September 13, 2019 /Neptune100/ — At the Franchise Action Network (FAN) annual awards dinner this week in Washington, D.C., United Franchise Group (UFG) franchisees— Signarama’s Maggie and Brian Harlow and Fully Promoted’s Jeff Mitchell — were honored as “Franchisees of the Year.” The award was created to recognize outstanding IFA member-company franchise establishment owner-operators. The ceremony concluded two days of advocacy training, educational luncheons, and keynote presentations, which the International Franchise Association (IFA) organized.

“Congratulations are in order for Maggie, Brian and Jeff,” said Ray Titus, UFG’s founder and CEO. “This award is a direct reflection of their hard work and dedication, which has enhanced both the growth of our brands and the franchise industry at large.”

The Harlows have operated their Louisville Signarama for 16 years. Since 2007, they’ve donated nearly $250,000 in signage services and products to local charitable organizations through their “Signs of Support” program. “We’re always eager to assist our community,” said Brian Harlow. “We consider this award a confirmation we’re on the right track,” added Maggie Harlow.

Mitchell opened his Fully Promoted location in Forest Hill, MD in 2015. “The accelerated rate of success that my franchise has reached is a testament to the service and support I receive daily from Fully Promoted,” said Mitchell. “They make my business their top priority, so I can cater to my customers’ special needs.”

Throughout the Sept. 9-11 FAN annual event, meetings were arranged among franchisees, franchisors, and representatives in Congress on Capitol Hill to discuss industry legislation and business concerns. For more information about the Franchise Action Network’s Annual Meeting, visit
