"With more businesses offering remote work for their employees, NerdsToGo has an opportunity to expand now more than ever before," said Mark Jameson, chief support and development officer at Propelled Brands. "We see great growth potential in the Michigan market and are confident that our proven business model along with the support and resources provided, will allow franchisees to thrive."
The NerdsToGo business model has created a culture of excellence where Nerds are given the opportunity to grow and profit from their skills while offering a high standard of professional service to customers.
"NerdsToGo fills a gap that exists between the large corporate IT services companies and the mom and pop stores that are out there," said Chuck Bailey, a new NerdsToGo franchise owner. "There are dozens, if not hundreds of mom and pop stores that are trying to meet the needs of consumers and small businesses. But, unfortunately, they do not have the full range of technical skills and, more importantly, the consistency of that service delivery to satisfy the needs of the consumers in the marketplace today."
Prospective franchisees do not need experience in information technology but should have a strong desire to grow a successful business in their local community, developing relationships with small business owners to become their outsourced IT department.
The initial investment for a NerdsToGo franchise is approximately $146,200 - $217,050, including a $49,750 franchise fee. Ideal candidates have a net worth of $300,000, of which $80K is liquid. Additionally, NerdsToGo offers a special incentive for veterans and first responders, including paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, sheriffs, and firefighters, including a 50% reduction on the franchise fee – a savings of $24,875.
