Geeks On Call Opens Two New Franchises in Charlotte, N.C.
Affordable and Professional IT Services Delivered to Small Business Community by Geeks on Call
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Geeks On Call Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: GOCH), a premier national provider of on-site computer service and solutions to small business and residential markets through its trade names Geeks On Call and 1-800-905-GEEK, announced today that it has extended its already strong presence in the Carolinas to reach more small businesses and residents in the Charlotte, N.C. area.
These new franchises primarily serve the southeastern suburbs of Charlotte (including Mint Hill, Matthews, Indian Trail, Monroe, Weddington and Waxhaw) and are owned and operated by businessman Michael Simons. According to Simons, "Geeks On Call's dedication to quality, service and ongoing customer support first attracted me to franchise ownership, and as a small business owner I look forward to working with my technicians to provide cost-effective, superior IT support to other small businesses in my area."
With the company's signature PT Cruisers leading the way, Geeks On Call technicians will always be available to provide rapid-response, on-site assistance for any computer emergency in the home or office. Geeks on Call also offers professional-quality IT support to the city's businesses at a fraction of the cost of in-house staff.
Rich Artese, Geeks On Call Vice President stated, "We want to experience quality growth in all of our franchise locations across the country, and we are focusing on the small business market to help us get there by offering new products, innovative IT solutions and world class service, all at affordable prices. We are also focused on offering our business customers service agreement options, which essentially enables Geeks On Call to become their outsourced IT department. This levels the playing field for the small business entrepreneur who is now empowered with the same quality IT support as big business."
