Fastsigns of Leesburg will celebrate its grand opening May 9.
Northern Virginia native Michelle Messich opened the business earlier this year along with her stepfather Gene Clement, nephew Dan Mathews and son Josh Messich.
Messich spent 23 years as a registered nurse. She then owned and operated her own fitness franchise for 10 years. When her brother opened a Fastsigns location in Rochester, MN, she spent time shadowing his business and decided to open her own operation in Leesburg.
The store is located at 934 Edwards Ferry Road NE and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The May 9 festivities begin at 4 p.m. Fastsigns International CEO Catherine Monson will be in attendance. Reservation may be made to 571-510-0400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
