January 15, 2014 // Franchising.com // Middletown, CT - Wireless Zone® Franchise, the largest Verizon Wireless retail franchisor in the U.S., offers opportunities to entrepreneurs who may be interested in buying an existing franchise without the apprehension of starting from scratch. During the last two years, Wireless Zone Franchise has successfully transferred approximately 60 stores with great results.
"There are many advantages to buying an existing franchise," said Clay Neff, executive director of franchise development. "Our experience shows that our re-sale locations do very well post-transfer. In fact, we found that our transfer franchises show improvement as high as 60 percent year over year over the location’s pre-transfer performance."
There are several reasons why a Wireless Zone Franchise re-sale may be a good option for entrepreneurs. An existing franchise already has the physical retail location and the brand visibility in place, and the store traffic is established. Customers are generally tied to the Verizon Wireless brand and this works to a re-sale buyer’s advantage.
"In essence, buying a Wireless Zone Franchise location is a win-win for everyone," said Neff. "Automotive Technologies, Inc., the parent company of the Wireless Zone franchise views transfers not only as a way to assist store owners who are interested in an exit strategy, but also as a way to offer a franchise opportunity to entrepreneurs who like the idea of purchasing an established business with an existing location, customer base, brand infrastructure and a Wireless Zone franchise support structure."
Wireless Zone Franchise re-sale opportunities are now available in Florida, Georgia, Virginia and New England.
