SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Phone-n-Fix, a premium like-new cell phone retailer and repair concept, recently launched a new franchise program offering its one-of-a-kind concept to qualified owner-operators across the continental United States.
The franchise opportunity will help qualified professionals curate a dynamic and superior customer experience, offering certified pre-owned smartphones with device payment plans, a full line of accessories and a full-service repair department.
“We have been developing our specialized mobile retail and repair services over the past several years, and now we are in the perfect position for nationwide growth,” said Steve Michael, Executive Vice President of Enterprise Development of Phone-n-Fix. “We are initially looking to add 25 new franchise locations in the next year, then grow to more than 300 locations in the next five years. With our franchise program, we look to change the landscape and bring a new level of sophistication to the mobile retail and repair industry.”
Serial entrepreneurs and innovative businessmen Kevin Tupy and T.J. Barthman developed Phone-n-Fix three years ago. Shortly after, Michael joined the company, bringing more than 20 years of entrepreneurship and business development experience. By combining Barthman’s and Michael’s extensive business experience with Tupy’s 20-plus years in the mobile phone industry, the three partners were able to create a premium cell phone retail and repair operation with second-to-none customer service. The business partners have now moved on to offer that model to qualified individuals via their newest venture, Phone-n-Fix Franchising.
Through the comprehensive program, Phone-n-Fix franchisees benefit from a multi-tiered system of exclusive purchasing power and an executive team with extensive knowledge of the mobile device and business industries. Franchise owners also benefit from the backing of a brand dedicated to providing premium customer experiences.
“Not only does this program capitalize on the growth of the mobile repair industry, but it has the support of an established organization behind it,” said Michael. “We have the right products, services and philosophy to sustain our expansion goals, and as we achieve those goals, we expect that our market position will only become stronger.”
