The international signage franchisor is diversifying its portfolio.

Fastsigns Holdings Inc. has announced the acquisition of GTN CAPITAL GROUP, LLC., the parent company of emerging IT services brand NerdsToGo.

Franchising for three years and with 25 locations in 16 states, NerdsToGo is trending toward exponential growth, with connectivity and efficient IT systems being paramount in a world shifting more and more toward remote working.

“We are excited to officially welcome NerdsToGo, a growing franchise organization in the IT Services business, into our family,” said Catherine Monson, CEO of FASTSIGNS International. “We look forward to what lies ahead for this exciting brand, especially the continued growth that will benefit NerdsToGo customers, franchisees, and team members.”

Fastsigns Holdings Inc. is the parent company of Global Franchise Award-winning signage and communications franchise FASTSIGNS International, which currently has more than 735 independently owned and operated FASTSIGNS centers in nine countries.

“As part of our ongoing strategy to provide outstanding support and growth opportunities to our franchisees, we have joined the FASTSIGNS family,” said David Colella, CEO and founder of NerdsToGo.“We are excited to join forces with one of the most powerful organizations in the franchise industry.

“After spending time with the FASTSIGNS executive team, it became clear to me that we could leverage their franchising expertise in development, support, marketing, brand positioning, and unit-level economics to grow the NerdsToGo business. I found the culture at FASTSIGNS to be consistent with the franchisee-first mindset that we have at NerdsToGo, with both organizations maintaining a commitment to its customers and employees.

“This relationship will allow us to grow the NerdsToGo franchise network and expand our awareness and footprint across the country and internationally.”
