We started our business in 2001 as a cell phone wholesaler. In 2003 we invested in a cell phone repair franchise and ran our operations under that name. We terminated that franchise in 2006 due to many operational problems with the Franchisor. For example, the monthly Royalty Fees were unrealistic and increased our overheads.
With the arrival of the IPhone in 2007 our business grew substantially along with other manufacturers offering various touch screen phones. As the competition increased we developed other venues and services to expand our base and as a result increased our revenues.
In 2012 we brought in new technology and our business model kept pace along with our technical skills. As a result, we launched, "GADGETS REPAIR".
In 2013 and early 2014, we have seen the fall of 3 of the most famous cell phone repair franchisors in the Tampa Bay area, some were independent owned, some were corporate, There are many reasons why any business would fall and shut down their door, based on our 14 years experience, we can say that the costly overheads is the number 1 reason to blame. We have seen money burned by small investors who want to get into this business and think that 2 weeks training is enough to start.
Simply put, we will give you the honest advise, we were a franchisee one day and know that all current franchisors are overpriced.
