Offers IT Support To Franchisees Through Value-Added Benefit Program
NORFOLK, Va., Dec. 18 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Geeks On Call Holdings, Inc. (OTCBulletinBoard: GOCH) , a premier national provider of professional IT solutions to small business and residential customers through its national network of franchise and Company-owned locations under the trade names Geeks On Call(R), 1-800-905-GEEK(TM), CallTheGeeks.com(TM) and Call The Geeks(TM), announced today that Molly Maid has joined its Value-Added Benefit co-marketing program for franchisors, creating a new endorsed vendor relationship with the company.
Molly Maid, the international maid service franchise with the signature blue car and pink logo, is a trusted provider of cleaning services since 1979. The company is a member of Service Brands International, a group of service companies that includes Mr. Handyman and 1-800-DRY-CLEAN. In addition to cleaning over a million homes per year, Molly Maid is highly active in the community and the media. The company has been on the 'home improvement show with a heart', Home Makeover Extreme Edition, and their services will be offered as a prize for winners on the "game show" Clean This House! In addition, Molly Maid does its share of community service through the Ms. Molly Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting victims and families affected by domestic violence. And not least of all, Molly Maid and its Pink Glove Treatment(R) were voted "Best Value" by Good Housekeeping in 2007.
As a part of Geeks On Call's Value-Added Benefit Program, Molly Maid franchise locations will be able to receive computer support on their schedule and at a preferred customer discount from Geeks On Call's industry certified professionals. Like Molly Maid employees, Geeks On Call technicians are screened and trained through rigorous processes designed to ensure that customers get the most qualified and trustworthy professionals working on their computer systems at their homes and businesses. Geeks On Call professionals have served the technology needs of their customers since 1999 through their own signature blue cars.
Geeks On Call CEO Richard Cole had this to say: "Geeks On Call's franchise owners understand how a small business, and especially a franchise, operates and can offer unique insight to Molly Maid franchisees. We truly look forward to working with Service Brands International as a partner through our Value-Added Benefit program. Molly Maid's community outreach and presence are impressive and inspiring, and it is our hope that one day our own community outreach, The Geeks On Call Parents' Guide to Internet Safety, can grow into a program with the same level of impact that their generous Miss Molly Foundation has. For now, we are just glad to be able to help them with their IT needs." View Richard Cole's video quote on Stock News Now by clicking here.
