Last month, Office Sign Company hit quite a milestone – 10 years, to be exact. In the busyness of the summer, our 10 year anniversary came as quickly as it went. But, the busyness is what has kept us around the last 10 years, so thank you for getting us here. A special thank you, however, goes to our founder and CEO, Ryan Fritz.
Some of you may know the story behind Office Sign Company. This business started in the basement of Ryan’s home in the summer of 2008, simply as a way to spend more time with his daughter. As ideas came and products were produced, however, Ryan’s “start-up” grew into a business. This business furthermore grew to employ over 40 individuals in two locations, and continues to exceed expectations with service, quality, and a positive work environment. Thank you, Ryan, for setting that expectation and continually pushing the standard to make this company what it is today.
“We have been fortunate and blessed over the last 10 years of running a business in Fargo, North Dakota,” says Ryan. “Starting off in the basement of my 1,000 square foot home, operating in roughly 500 sq.ft. or less for our early years, we now boast over 25,000 sq. ft. of sign-creating space to serve clients locally and all across the Nation.”
It’s quite exceptional to be able to say that we manufacture and distribute products throughout the Nation. We are able to field orders and communicate with businesses and people all across the United States. It’s fulfilling and heartwarming to know that they went through our lovely city of Fargo for their purchase. There’s no denying that Fargo is on the map, and it’s because of the tight-knit, hard-working, and friendly community that is Fargo.
To be short and sweet, thank you for helping Office Sign Company hit 10 years! From the first UPS man who shipped packages out of Ryan’s house, to the local businesses who’ve referenced us, to the wonderful employees that keep this company running smoothly: we thank you!
We held a small celebration, also known as our annual family picnic, last week to say “Cheers to 10 Years!” If you’d like to see the album, check it out here. Oh, and if you think you need one of the selfie frames or yard signs found in these photos, you can find the on our site. What’s marketing without a little product placement, right? 😉 Happy birthday, OSC! Needless to say, we’re all looking forward to 10, 20, even 50 more years at this establishment.
