Friendly Computers, the country’s largest computer and consumer electronic retail, service and repair franchise touted for reliable and “friendly” customer support, today announced that it has tapped into the services of one of the franchise industry’s leading sales professionals to grow the chain more aggressively than ever before. The company’s strategic partnership with Olvian Manz and his Las Vegas-based Master Franchise Investments calls for explosive expansion that will more than triple the size of Friendly Computers’ U.S. footprint.
“With strong momentum already behind our brand, the partnership with Olvian Manz, who is an established, proven leader in the franchise industry, will take our growth plans up another notch,” said Bryan Ward, co-founder and president of Friendly Computers. “He has more than 25 years of expertise in the franchise industry, so, we look forward to utilizing his reputable skills and services to help drive area development with the right partners for our brand.”
Manz, who has experience owning and operating franchises as well as entire franchise systems, intends to drive Friendly Computers’ growth nationwide from 130-plus locations to more than 500 through area developer agreements with qualified investors. Manz has a proven track record for taking brands from just a handful of units to hundreds and even thousands.
