Findley Group Paves Road to Growth for NerdsToGo
Franchise Experts to Help Ease Pain of the Country's Frustrated Computer Users with Aggressive Expansion Plan for Tech Services Chain
August 04, 2008 // Franchising.com // Waco, TX - Tapping into the power of franchising, NerdsToGo, a residential computer services and small business technology solutions company, today announced a partnership with the Findley Group, the Waco, Texas-based, leading franchise development company. Led by Gary Findley, the former President of Curves International who was responsible for taking the chain from just a handful to several thousand units worldwide, the Findley Group sees great potential in NerdsToGo because of its distinguishing approach to customer service, a major differentiator between it and the big box chains.
"NerdsToGo presents an exciting and unique opportunity for franchise investors and we are setting an aggressive plan in place for their expansion," said Findley. "Already well-established in Connecticut, we're looking forward to helping them achieve dynamic growth to tend to frustrated computer users nationwide."
NerdsToGo currently has 20 locations across the country, five of which are situated in retail storefronts. The locations put a strong emphasis on convenience, efficiency and friendliness, which is driving more and more consumers to the chain for all of their computer needs.
The pairing of Findley and David Colella, NerdsToGo founder and CEO, puts the brightest in franchising and technology services side-by-side. Colella recognizes that teaming with Findley connects his business with an established authority in the franchising world.
"The possibilities are endless," said Colella. "Gary and his staff of experts have more than 150 years of combined experience in franchising and they have processes in place to take us from where we are today to where we want to be and beyond in the years ahead."
NerdsToGo currently offers two different types of franchises to accommodate entrepreneurs looking to break in to the computer service industry. With an Owner Operator franchise, the franchisee provides computer support themselves, and is not required to hire any additional technicians. The second form, the Executive Model, enables the franchisee to hire at least two technicians, and provide a NerdsToGo branded vehicle. Both franchising options include comprehensive training and ongoing corporate support, including human resources help, marketing support, and a 24-hour customer service call center.
