CARROLLTON, Texas, Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — NerdsToGo®, a leading computer and technology repair services franchise, is looking to expand its footprint in the Greater Pittsburgh region by eight new units, as the ever-increasing demand for in-home technological solutions continues to rise.
“Working remotely has become a part of everyday business with companies of all sizes choosing to leave the classic office setting for a stay-at-home business model,” said Mark Jameson, chief support and development officer at Propelled Brands. “We see amazing growth potential in the Pittsburgh area, and with the support and resources we offer along with our proven business model, our franchisees will flourish in this market.”
In September 2020, NerdsToGo was acquired by Propelled Brands. Under new leadership, the NerdsToGo brand and its franchisees will receive ongoing training, support, and unparalleled resources to position the brand as a leader among the industry and the local communities it serves.
“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, the Pittsburgh West NerdsToGo franchise owner. “When Propelled Brands acquired NerdsToGo, I knew they would take the FASTSIGNS business model and bring those tools to the NerdsToGo franchise. Looking at the FASTSIGNS legacy, Propelled Brands is setting up NerdsToGo to be a lean, mean, franchising machine, and I am excited to be a part of that transformation.”
NerdsToGo is currently seeking qualified franchisees to be owner-operators to help the brand grow in this market. 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, which includes a 50% reduction on the franchise fee – a savings of $24,875.
