A FASTSIGNS franchise in Dallas, Texas, (UPIC: F638423) has been named a Franchisee of the Year award winner by the International Franchise Association (IFA). The award recognizes franchisees who have demonstrated excellence within the franchising community.

Sarosh Nayar, owner of the Dallas distributor, was recognized this week at IFA’s Franchise Action Network Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. which brought together more than 300 franchise business leaders to raise awareness with policymakers and other D.C. influencers about the industry.

“IFA is proud to recognize Sarosh’s exemplary efforts with the Franchisee of the Year award and as an outstanding ambassador for his franchise,” says IFA President and CEO Robert Cresanti, CFE. “The franchising community is a critical component of the U.S. economy in large part due to the dedication of exemplary individuals like Sarosh who have helped bolster the growth of the industry. As Washington works to strengthen our economy, policymakers should remember that franchising is making a difference in every local community across the country.”
