The company was founded in Columbia, South Carolina in 2009. Our first location was in the back corner of a mattress store. Today, we have 41 locations throughout 10 states, and we have repaired more than 1 million devices.
We understand that your devices, whether they are smartphones or tablets, are essential to nearly every aspect of your life. You rely on these tools to work and play. When your mobility is interrupted, things fall through the cracks. So, we focus on enhancing and sustaining your increasingly important connected lifestyle.
Our model is way more than walk-in repairs. We partner with Walmart, Barnes & Noble, Samsung, Lenovo and other brands to provide mobile management services. And we manage 1M+ devices for more than a dozen K-12 schools throughout the country.
More than 67% of owners own multiple locations.
This fact should come as no surprise because we have a franchise model that's easy to repeat. And we recently rolled out a new Staymobile store prototype that offers a sleek new look. Its simple and straightforward design improves efficiency and reduces costs.
Why Our Franchise?
Each franchised area is exclusive and, depending on the population density of the area, protected either by a zip code listing, city boundaries or by establishing a radius – typically at least three miles – around an individual store. Each location normally encompasses an area with a population of 150,000 to 200,000.
You will receive a total of four weeks of training either at the Staymobile training center and/or at your location–two weeks of sales and operational training and two weeks of technical training. You will receive additional launch support at your store with an onsite Staymobile trainer. The franchisee is responsible for their personal expenses when traveling to the Staymobile training center.
Through the use of local advertising, PR and social media (all of which we will assist in creating and maintaining). We also recommend an ongoing awareness-building campaign aimed at the wireless retail community in your area (wireless carrier stores and big box retailers) due to the fact that customers with broken devices typically seek repair services from these outlets. Since they do not have repair capabilities, they willingly refer these customers to Staymobile for repair services.
