The EmbroidMe Story

Business Franchise Group (BFG) have a long association with sister franchise Speedy Signs, which commenced operations in 1998, with a pilot store in Penrose Auckland. Not having come from the industry it was important that Business Franchise Group knew the business inside out, so that once franchising began BFG were able to give support to the franchisees.
