Friendly Computers

Friendly Computers is unique, because no computer experience is necessary to own and operate your franchise.

Description

The sales of computers have now soared to $300 Billion a year, with no signs of slowing up, and computer services are expected to exceed $100 Billion by the end of 2010. The question is, "Who's going to handle the demand?"

Friendly Computers Franchise Opportunities. The Friendly Computers franchise system is unique because we are a sales and marketing franchise that provides superior computer and customer service. Since 1992 we have been helping people repair, upgrade, and custom-build their computer systems, at their location.

They no longer have to unplug their systems and haul them in for service.

While other computer franchises look for Certified Technicians, to own a franchise, Friendly Computers looks for the business person that can follow a proven sales and marketing system.

We'll teach YOU how to advertise, recruit, hire, and train qualified, personable technicians to do the work for you.

From your initial, customized pre-launch Marketing Plan and Monthly Marketing Roundtables to Operations and Technical support, we're there, every step of the way, to guide you in building the successful business you've always dreamed of. "You'll be in business for yourself, but not by yourself."

Success Stories!

"We were looking for a home-based franchise that had low start-up costs, but high profit potential. After researching several companies, my husband and I decided Friendly Mobile had the all the qualities of the best investment we would ever make. Our customers are part of the fastest growing market in the world, and our bottom line consistently increases at a rate that has surprised both of us. Friendly's system of operations is easy to follow, and their support network has gotten us through difficult situations with ease. It is a business based on simple but strong values, and our customers benefit every day from the superior level of service we can provide. Rob and I have finally achieved our dream of business ownership, and now look forward to becoming owners of multiple Friendly Mobile locations." - Rob & Diana, Omaha, NE

Area Development Program

Area Development is a program for the multi-talented individual who has the desire to develop, own, and operate multiple franchise locations within a specified territory over a specific development schedule.

It’s perfect for the investor who wants to start their investment portfolio or add to their existing portfolio.

In the Area Development Program; the franchisee will own an exclusive territory and will agree to a development schedule for the number of units they must open and operate.

There is typically a reduction in franchise fees when multiple units are purchased.

Master Franchising

Master Franchising is one of the best kept secrets in franchising. Master Franchising, when available, allows the well capitalized individual to be in the franchise business without the financial and time investment it takes to develop a successful franchise system.

In the Master Franchise, the investor will receive the exclusive rights to a large, predetermined territory and will sell single or multiple unit franchises. They will also provide local support for the franchises they sell.

In return for their time and monetary investment, they receive one-half of the franchise fees and one-half of the royalties paid for the units in their Master Franchise territory, for the life of the franchise agreements.

The initial fees will vary according to size of the Master Franchise.

We also have existing franchises for sale in the following markets:

  • Dallas, Texas (Sold)
  • Omaha, Nebraska
  • Kansas City, Missouri
  • Kansas City, Kansas
  • Mercer County, New Jersey
  • Palm Beach, Florida
