I had 3 independent stores in this area. They really did pretty good. They would have done better if I had more reliable staff or if I had been more a owner operator. I have a Kiosk that I paid $26,000.00 for plus about $4,000.00 in parts and tools if someone wants to be an owner operator I can help them get started for much less than what it cost to do a franchise. I can tell you and train on the ins and outs of the repair, buy, sell and trade business.

I am a current Franchisee of this System and I can attest that there is business coming in through the doors. CPR's target market are the folks who break their cell phone in the middle of their 2 year contact and would have to pay retail price to replace their phone. The customer does not get the same privilege of the subsidized phone price that they received when signing the 2 year contract unless if he/she is within months of his contract expiring. I am the 53rd store location and just placed my LOI on my second location. Do you dull diligence on this system (call existing franchisees), as you should with all systems, make sure you are a good fit for it. Just because something is good it still might not be a fit for you and that is was ultimately counts! The corporate site is below.

It is an interesting concept - I admit that I have not heard about this kind of business before. I believe Verizon has cut its own tech repair desks to just simple tasks, so there may be a market. But I tend to agree with Jon, in that anything that goes wrong is usually handled, one way or another, by the telephone company. The cheaper the phone, the easier it is to dump it, rather than repair it, depending on the cost of the repair. And the more expensive phones normally suggest the need for a repair contract from the phone company, which normally means sending the phone away and they send you a replacement, as Jon said.

Again, an interesting concept, but I think a LOT of due diligence would be warranted, before buying into the business.

I have several cell phones that work fine, the cell people keep giving me new phones. Why would anyone bother paying to repair one? Think about it before you invest. See if the company has any franchisees that you can talk to and see if it works. Good luck, Jon at Edgemaster.
