Geeks on Call Announces New Franchise Opportunities

Geeks on Call, the Virginia based IT service provider to small and mid-sized businesses and residential customers, announced new franchise opportunities to entrepreneurs, by offering a “dependable trusted advisor to provide support and advice for all of their technology needs.”

The company, under new ownership, has reformulated the franchise offering to bring its well established brand back to the market, according to company officials. The company was acquired by On Call Holdings in fall 2009.

“We took two years to build a new model, and we believe the result is an opportunity that is unique to our industry and attractive to entrepreneurs,” said Rich Artese, president of Geeks on Call, in a statement

Geeks On Call is able to arrange cost-effective telecom and Internet services from a broad array of reputable companies, says Glenn Davis, CEO of On Call Holdings International.

Davis says the franchise offer is good for small business owners because they are able to work with one knowledgeable technical team for all their IT and communications needs. “And it’s great for the Geeks on Call franchisee because he can count on a residual monthly income stream, which enhances the long term value of his company.”

In addition to the trusted Geeks on Call brand, franchisees also get back-end support including national brand marketing, sales advisors, a national call center, access to a national network of technical experts and partnerships with several telecom and IT Service products.

These relationships, as well as training and on-going support, offer entrepreneurs with little or no technical experience the opportunity to build a business in the ever expanding world of IT services, according to company officials.

The franchisee is offered for just $20,000 for a single territory.  There is no royalty fee based on revenue. Rather, Geeks on Call charges a flat monthly membership fee of $500. 

Geeks on Call franchisees need not be technologically expert to be successful. The company maintains relationships with technology experts and major telecom companies throughout the United States, which enable the franchise owners to provide support and service that is a cut above other IT service companies thereby enhancing the client relationship and franchisee profit potential.
