YESCO was founded in 1920 by Thomas Young. Since the very beginning, we have set the standard for quality, innovation and service in the sign and lighting industry. Our mission is to provide customers with the highest quality service at the greatest possible value.

From YESCO's humble beginnings in 1920 its growth has been a remarkable story of the American Dream come true. Thomas Young had a love for art. He applied that passion to making signs. At first these were simple signs, but as the science of lighting and sign-making so did Tom's signs. His company, driven by the pioneering spirit he exemplified maintained a leading-edge position in the industry.

YESCO was soon recognized as a leader in the sign industry, earning a reputation for creating the finest signs in the nation. The YESCO family put Las Vegas on the map as far as signs were concerned. YESCO continues to design, build, install and maintain spectacular skyline signs and award-winning displays while pressing ahead as a technological leader.

YESCO’s company-owned locations provide sign and lighting service in the eleven Western states. In 2011, YESCO began to franchise its unique and proprietary business model across the remaining states and internationally. We understood the value of sharing our system with vested and motivated franchisees.

After a thorough investigation into the franchise industry we launched the effort. The growth our the network has been remarkable and the number of franchise owners and outlets continues to grow.

By the end at 2016 we had over 50 owners operating in 115 territories. Close to half of our franchisees have acquired additional territory which speaks to the success of our proven approach. We invite you to learn more about our service business model and connect with us.

We grew from 10 to 115 awarded territories in the last 5 years-a 63% annual growth rate! Over half of the territories awarded last year were to existing franchisees.
