Kix Mobile Launches Aggressive Franchise Expansion
An industry disruptive retail force offering buy, sell, and trade on quality Certified Pre-Owned unlocked phones and tablets, and Xchange-Repair™ a no tech, no fixing and no waiting innovative phone repair service.
(Orlando, FL) According to a Morgan Stanley study, mobile technology is growing faster than any other industrial or technology segment has ever grown in human history. Backed by a world-class management team with nearly a 100 years of combined franchise experience, the founders of Kix Mobile have created and grown some of the most iconic brands in the world such as Massage Envy, U.S. Lawns, Ident-A-Kid, Computer Doctor/Expetec… and helped create the Geek Squad.
Kix Mobile stores buy, sell, trade mobile devices, provide replacement Xchange-Repair™, and sell accessories for iPhone®, Samsung®, iPad®, and other tablets. Taking advantage of the shift to replacement rather than repair – Kix Mobile Xchange-Repair™ is a new and innovative approach to device repair by providing fast and easy device and data exchange for one low price. Typically, Xchange-Repair™ pricing is comparable to a standard repair shop fee. I.E. You hand a Kix team member your iPhone® or Samsung® with a broken camera and they hand you back a high quality certified pre-owned phone with your data restored for an affordable flat fee. Why wait for hours to get your mobile device repaired; when Kix Mobile can swap it out and have you on your way in minutes!
The Kix Mobile business model removes the requirement for store owners to have phone repair/technical training and significantly reduces tech hiring overhead. Couple that with a mass-market product and simple menu and store operations - the Kix Mobile franchise gives you a significant competitive advantage.
The Kix Mobile franchise utilizes a small footprint (square footage) and can be operated as a cart, kiosk, store-in-a-store, or storefront. This flexibility allows it to fit into a wider range of real estate options and keep store development costs lower. The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Kix Mobile franchise ranges from $48,700 - $194,000 depending on the type and size of the store.
In addition to single and multi-unit store options, Kix Mobile offers an Area Representative franchise opportunity that manages a large geographic territory, sharing in the initial franchise fees and royalties in exchange for recruiting, training and supporting Kix Mobile single and multi-unit franchisees within the territory. The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Kix Mobile Area Representative franchise ranges from $145,500 to $431,000 for the license and startup costs to begin recruiting franchisees to open and operate 15-50 store locations.
“We are extremely excited to be bringing Kix Mobile to the market! We have experienced tremendous interest in multi-unit store deals, area representatives, store-in-a-store opportunities with national retail brands, and conversion opportunities with existing repair store owners.” said Paul Wolbert, CEO of Kix Mobile. “The level of interest we’ve had absolutely validates our unique business model as the future of where the mobile market is heading!”
