FASTSIGNS of Coral Gables given the Outstanding Women-Owned Business Award

Dec 20, 2018

FASTSIGNS ® of Coral Gables was recently given the Outstanding Women Owned Business Award at the Diamond Awards 2018 hosted by the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce.

“I’ve been driven to get involved with the community in every possible way, so people are getting to know me and the good work we do,” said Rosella Papele. “They trust FASTSIGNS of Coral Gables, and they have been witnessing the great customer service we provide and the high quality products we deliver.”


The center was nominated by other members of the chamber or friends that felt they met the requirements of the award. FASTSIGNS of Coral Gables then had to fill out an application to share more information about their business, who they have worked with and how they are involved in their local community. The applications were then sent to a group of judges who picked finalists and ultimately the winner of the award.

“We are being recognized by our community as a point of resource in branding, marketing, signs, printing and graphics,” said Papale. “We are also being recognized as ethical and responsible professionals that are helpful and always willing to go the extra mile for them.”


The Chamber serves as the voice for local businesses. It also has strong international roots as approximately 200 multinational companies, as well as 20 consular corps and trade offices, are based in Coral Gables. With the support of members, city officials, local organizations, and residents, the Chamber strives to strengthen the types of services available to the community, such as world-class shopping, renowned restaurants, extraordinary entertainment and tremendous business advantages.


“Inspiration is everywhere, but this award makes me feel even more inspired to become a leader in my community and in my industry. The plan for next year is to keep working hard as we have been doing to grow the business even more and to be able to give back to the community, without sacrificing product quality or a great customer service experience.”
