AArrow Advertising Franchise
AArrow Advertising is a franchise for an advertising agency specializing in signage’s being held by people. It all started in 1999 when Max Durovic got a summer job as a sign holder.
It became too boring for him that he thought of ways to make it more entertaining and so, he danced with the sign. He enjoyed his job too much that his friends envied him. They applied for sign-holding jobs and soon there were dozens of human advertisers in San Diego. They began throwing and spinning the signs and competing with themselves that they caught attention from the public which was good. They called themselves the sign spinners.
When Max got back from finishing college in 2001, the sign spinners decided to put up their own business. Their first client was for a furniture store. Just for the weekend, the store wanted to give them a try. Within the first 30 minutes of sign spinning, a lady went in and bought the most expensive furniture they had from the CEO who was then visiting. The CEO was so impressed that he gave them a list of stores nationwide they wanted AArrow advertising to go to. Then they expanded. COO Mike Kenny managed San Diego while Max handled Washington D.C. and the East. It continued to grow as many was impressed with the business they bring in and in 2009, they became a global franchise. They have had big clients like FOX Channel Five, H&R Block, Staples, Subway, Toys ‘R’Us, Wells Fargo, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, and Verizon Wireless, just to name a few.
