Hello to all!

As a member of the YESCO Franchising department, I wanted to get a feel for what people think of what we are doing. We have been growing this for two years now, and have seen tremendous results. I know when we first began, it was greeted with mixed feelings. I want to find out what the buzz is around the sign community (if there is a buzz), and help bring a greater understanding to what our franchise actual is (yes, it is very different from the other sign franchises out there). In 2014 we are going to have a franchise in every state outside of the Western 11 that YESCO has offices in.

If you have not heard about YESCO Franchising, and you want to learn more, that is what I am here for, so please don't hesitate to contact me. We have been contacting a lot of companies out there, so if we haven't called you yet, and you want to know more, let me know. I am interested to see what everyone has to say.

Jack Larsen

      How A Utah Company Became Nevada's Go-To Shop For Neon

      http://kuer.org/post/how-utah-company-became-nevadas-go-shop-neon#stream/
      Ever since he was a young, Will Durham admits he’s had an affinity for neon. It’s hard not to when you grow up casino-studded town like Reno, Nevada.
      “When I was a kid I had a hard time going to sleep and I would always see that glow of downtown Reno and the neon,” he says. “And I knew there was still action going on, and I wasn’t the last one awake. And I think that kind of sparked the interest.”
      For the last two decades, Durham, who still lives in Reno, has been collecting vintage neon signs from old, retro-looking motels and roadside businesses — the kinds of places that seem to be disappearing across the desert West.
      He’s had to rent space to store all the signs — 100 and counting — and his garage is stuffed with them, too. He has to carefully maneuver around to get to a wall plug to light them all up.
      Among his signs, there’s a creepy clown, a couple of cowboys and a very happy man pulling a lever on a slot machine.
      “You can see the coins falling, he’s actually winning,” he says.
      He got that one from a place called the El Rancho in Wells, Nev., and he guesses it's probably 60-70 years old. Durham says there aren’t a lot of companies left doing this type of work, but there is one: the Young Electric Sign Company, or YESCO.
      “They’re maybe the most prolific in Nevada, and they've been around a long time," he said.
      Drive around Nevada long enough, and it’s impossible to have missed the work of the nearly century-old Young Electric Sign Company.
      That “Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas” sign that tourists take selfies in front of? That’s YESCO. Reno’s arch? YESCO. The 40-foot Vegas Vic or Wendover Will cowboys with hundreds of feet of winding neon tubing? Also YESCO.
      From billboards to office parks to the Las Vegas Strip, the company is one of the oldest manufacturers of commercial signs in the U.S. And although their signs are nearly synonymous with Vegas, they’re actually headquartered here in Utah.
      Jeff Young is a third generation co-owner of YESCO. It was founded by his grandfather Thomas Young in Ogden in 1920. He gave a tour of their Salt Lake factory last year.  
      In the late 1920s, his grandfather saw an opportunity in a trendy new lighting technology made popular by a French engineer. So he applied for a license and got one of his first commissions: the Boulder Club in Las Vegas, in 1931.

      “The race for signs in Vegas really started right there with with Thomas Young, Sr. and his license with neon and we've never stopped,” says Jeff Young.  “And so you talk about where neon really started in the Intermountain West and in the western U.S., and really the roads kind of all lead back to Tom Young.”

      Jeff Young and his two brothers now run the business, with more than 100 locations across the U.S. and in Canada. He says people are still surprised with they learn that some of the most iconic signs in Vegas came from a Utah company.
      “Oh, there’s a great contrast there,” he says. “You have  a fairly clean-cut family and a rather conservative community building the biggest, brightest, flashiest signs in the world.”

      Inside their small neon shop in Salt Lake, neon bender Dave Corey blows into a small pipe that snakes into a glass tube he’s holding over an open flame. The pipe helps him keep the right amount of pressure so he can shape the tube into a curvy and alluring letter ‘B.’
       
      “A lot of people think you're actually blowing glass," he says. "But for the most part you're not really blowing into the tube. When the heat heats the air that's inside the tube, it expands.”
      Corey has worked for YESCO for 30 years. He’s often thinking in the third dimension when figuring out how to make a sign into one seamless piece.  
      Neon makes up only 10 percent of their business today, and most of that is for servicing and repairing older signs. LEDs are what most businesses want. Not only do they use less power and last longer, but companies can easily program them to swap out their graphics or messaging.
      Young says it’s also harder to find people who can invest the time to learn a trade like neon, which can take years.

      “Dave’s skill at bending is just phenomenal,” says Young. “We hate to say neon is a dying art, but the reality is it's hard to find a Dave in this world of ours. And it's harder harder to find people who are really good at this trade.”
      Will Durham, the Reno neon collector, says it’s an artform worth preserving. Part of it is nostalgia, he admits, but aesthetically, neon’s soft colors and sinuous curves are just more pleasing to the eye. He’s currently fundraising in hopes of establishing a permanent home for his collection.
      “You're never going to see these neon extravaganzas again," he says. "Like the 150-foot sign with miles and miles of pulsing neon, you’re never going to see that again.”

      But that won’t stop Durham from collecting what’s left of them. And it won’t stop YESCO’s Dave Corey from bending away in his small workshop in Salt Lake.
