Successful Sign Companies
340 +

Our sign business model and culture are built on people and the relationships built with those people.

Building relationships creates long term potential in every facet of business and enables more collaborative support models that allow businesses to succeed.

Signworld is an organization of 340+ sign companies, over 75 Preferred Partners, and a corporate team that all interact more like a supportive community rather than just an organization of similar businesses. Signworld owners support each other, talk regularly, collaborate on projects and get together for networking opportunities.

Communication and collaboration at each level allow us to continually perform better in every capacity compared to our industry competitors.

In a franchise world where franchisees are typically discouraged from communicating with each other, we actually encourage it. We’re confident that if you spend 20 minutes talking to anyone in the organization you’ll quickly see the “community” atmosphere. It is truly unlike any other organization you’ll come across.

Latest Webinar Recording

Ken Kindt


Our History

Signworld was established as a Business Opportunity by founder Ken Kindt in 1988, a former financial planner and Ford Motor Company executive. His concept was a light manufacturing model with a state of the art equipment package, a training program and on-going support for the life of the business. In the first year, two locations opened, one of which is still in full operation today. Over the years as the number of individual owners and locations grew, the business model continued to be refined and enriched, but the basic program of no-rules, no-royalties, with on-going support and training has never changed. This inclusive program makes it unique in the franchise market and sign industry.

In 2014, Ken sold Signworld to Jack Werner, a former individual Signworld owner. The transfer of ownership was designed to take place over a period of time to allow for a smooth transition. During that time the Signworld headquarters was moved to Southern California with an expanded training facility and additional staff. Ken remains a part of the Signworld team providing strategic guidance.
