Kix Mobile Expands to Canada with 20 Locations Planned for Toronto
The first store is scheduled to open Q2 in the Greater Toronto Area – part of a bigger plan of more than 300 stores to be developed throughout Canada.
(Orlando, FL) April 25, 2018 – Kix Mobile is coming to Canada! Kix Mobile, an emerging brand that buys, sells, trades mobile devices, provides replacement Xchange-Repair™, sells accessories and offers prepaid phone plans announced today it plans to develop 20 new stores throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) market as part of its planned Canadian expansion in the coming years. As new Area Representative and franchise developer, the growth will be led by Mississauga, Ontario based Franchise 360, Inc.
John Goodish, Vice President of Franchise 360 will spearhead the company’s opening of new locations over the next several years, with the first store slated to open in in the second quarter of 2018. As part of his role as Area Representative, Goodish will also lead the franchisee recruitment efforts for the brand to open additional stores throughout the GTA.
“We've been researching new concepts to bring to our local community and quickly realized that Kix Mobile was just what the Canadian market was missing. Particularly with the Xchange-Repair™ and used phone segments of the business. There is no one else doing this," said Goodish. "We are thrilled to be an Area Representative of Toronto and the other surrounding communities and look forward to applying our extensive background in franchising to develop the area with not only locations of our own, but also with other prospective franchisees."
“Canada is a wide-open market opportunity for Kix Mobile and we are extremely excited to be expanding our brand there. This is the first step of our goal in developing approximately 300 stores or more throughout the country,” said Paul Wolbert, CEO of Kix Mobile. “John and his team have a wealth of franchising knowledge and we are confident of the team’s ability to grow the brand throughout the GTA and beyond.”
