Company Makes Annual List at Number 470
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Yakety Yak Wireless, Inc. (YYWI), one of the largest wireless franchises in the nation, today announced its debut on Entrepreneur Magazine's annual "Franchise 500" list, ranked at number 470.
"The Entrepreneur 'Franchise 500' list is the premier ranking of all the franchises in the country and we are very pleased that we were recognized as one of the best," said David Timlin, CEO of Yakety Yak. "The wireless industry is constantly changing, and with the current shift by some carriers to open their networks to any mobile phone or device I believe we will see a significant positive impact on the consumer and the way we conduct business in the wireless arena. Our franchisees, as vested store owners, understand these market trends and opportunities and consult with each customer so they can recommend the plan and phone that best fits their needs."
Yakety Yak wireless superstores offer a wide selection of cell phones, calling plans and wireless accessories, as well as the "Yak Swap" trade-in program. The "Yak Swap" program allows consumers to conveniently and safely recycle their used cell phones and receive store credit for purchase of a new phone or other accessory.
"What sets Yakety Yak apart is the training we offer our franchisees to create a professional, relaxed, consultative selling environment in their stores," Timlin said. "Rather than being limited to a single product or service, Yakety Yak customers have the opportunity to choose what will work best for the way they use their cell phone, be it for making local or long-distance calls, sending text messages, taking pictures, sending emails or surfing the Internet."
Yakety Yak offers its franchisees a comprehensive training program that includes attending classes at corporate headquarters and in-store training, supported by distance learning and monthly conference calls with corporate executives and staff.
"Entrepreneurs interested in being part of the wireless telecommunications industry have responded to the Yakety Yak business model and philosophy," Timlin said. "We look forward to expanding our footprint, extending our brand awareness and achieving continued growth and success in partnership with our franchisees."
