Couple and Their Daughter Purchase Local FASTSIGNS® Centerby Allison Whalen
(TONAWANDA, N.Y.) Oct. 4, 2011 - Last month, local couple John and Mary Ellen Fletcher and their daughter, Barbara Meyers, purchased the Tonawanda - Buffalo FASTSIGNS® sign and graphics center.
Located at 2865 Sheridan Drive, the Tonawanda - Buffalo FASTSIGNS offers a full range of custom sign and graphics solutions including banners, site and architectural signs, window and vehicle graphics, floor graphics, point-of-purchase signs, safety and identification signage, trade show displays, dimensional letters, QR codes and much more.
"My family and I were born and raised within blocks of this FASTSIGNS center," said John. "We decided to make the purchase after learning about all that franchising offers to local communities. Being able to contribute to the growth and the development of this area is something that is important to us."
The Fletchers and Meyers purchased the center from Jon Patterson, who originally opened the center in November of 1990, after he decided to retire. Now the team says that they are interested in getting even more involved with their community.
"We are looking forward to sponsoring community events and we have already gotten involved with the Ken-Ton and Amherst Chambers of Commerce," explained Mary Ellen. "We have been longtime business owners in the area and can't wait to see what this new endeavor brings."
Before purchasing the Tonawanda - Buffalo FASTSIGNS, the Fletchers owned Convenient Food Mart and Breathing Air Resources. They also co-owned Enchantments Gift Stores with Meyers. The Fletchers and Meyers attended two weeks of training at the FASTSIGNS corporate headquarters in Dallas to prepare them to take over ownership of their sign and graphics center.
"We are excited to be the community's one-stop shop for all of their visual communications needs," said Meyers. "We'd like to invite anyone who is interested to stop by, meet the team and learn more about our quality sign and graphics solutions."
