He is the fifth Area Developer for Gamer Doc, and will direct store development in the metro area surrounding Philadelphia.
"Jeffrey's decision to join our franchise development team is a strong endorsement of the exciting growth opportunities the video game industry offers, and validation of the Gamer Doc business model as the best way to participate in the market," said Jim Belanger, president of Gamer Doc. "His experience as a Gamer Doc store owner is a great asset to our franchise development team, and his business consulting background will greatly benefit the franchisees in his area."
"The video game industry has posted record-breaking sales numbers the past two years, and this year has started out even stronger," Garrison said. "The upside opportunities in the video game industry are tremendous, and the Gamer Doc franchise model offers the ideal combination of entrepreneurship and proven systems, backed by training and support, purchasing power and brand strength."
Gamer Doc is more than a video game store; it is an entertainment center, featuring "Gamer Centers" for Xbox 360®, PlayStation3® and Wii®, making it easy for customers to find the games, consoles and accessories they are looking for. Gamer Doc also offers rentals on recently released games, disc and console repairs, and sells cables and flat-panel HD monitors. The knowledgeable staff is happy to show customers how to hook-up their systems for optimum game play.
"All gamers, from hardcore to casual to novice, will enjoy their shopping experience at Gamer Doc," Garrison said. "Our store design optimizes flow, so that customers who know what they want can come in and buy, rent, sell, pre-order or trade-in games, drop off a console or game for repair, and be in and out of the store quickly, while those who are new to gaming or want to browse, can take their time and have all of their questions answered."
Gamer Doc is an innovative franchise concept that offers the opportunity to own, develop and operate a retail video game emporium. Launched in December 2007, Gamer Doc delivers a new and interactive experience to all customers. From dedicated gamers to Mom or Dad who want to try out a game, trade-in some old games or check out the latest titles and consoles from Microsoft®, Nintendo®, and Sony®, all customers will enjoy the ultimate gaming experience.
