TeamLogic IT Opens 100th Franchise Location
Double-digit growth over a decade allows the managed IT services brand to hit this important milestone during a time of unprecedented growth
Getting to 100 locations is a goal set early in a franchise brand’s life cycle. It means that the concept is solid, and that it has found success in multiple markets. That’s certainly true for the TeamLogic IT franchise network, which recently hit that milestone.
“To be honest, this happened a little faster than we expected,” admits Chuck Lennon, President. “But it’s a remarkable milestone to achieve for our brand. It says that our brand is viable, and that our TeamLogic IT franchise owners are the hardest-working people in the business.”
Growth shows untapped market need
The 100th TeamLogic IT franchise location is in Yonkers, New York, and like all the others it provides managed IT and other services to meet the needs of small- and midsize businesses of all kinds. At the same time, each franchise location explores its own territory and connects with specific verticals to become specialized to that market.
“Every franchise looks at four or five groups of businesses in their territory when they start out, and that’s where they begin to market and build awareness,” Chuck says. “The fact that they have had so much success helping everyone from law and accounting firms to physician practices, schools, child-care systems and even funeral homes speaks volumes about the need that’s out there for sound, comprehensive IT services.”
Managed IT services awareness continues
When the first TeamLogic IT franchise opened just over 10 years ago, it stood out because it offered managed IT services.
Businesses were used to IT as a break-fix proposition and would only call a repair vendor when they had a problem. TeamLogic IT creates a monthly contract instead, so IT expenses can be budgeted. We then offer not just repairs but also diagnostics, security monitoring and valuable input on system growth and expansion. TeamLogic IT revolutionized the industry — and we continue to do so.
“IT was confusing to businesses then, and it’s even more so now because of the complexity of the systems that are out there,” Chuck says. “Small businesses in particular are more dependent on IT, not less. They need help and guidance, and that’s why a TeamLogic IT franchise will have a long lifespan. When security breaches make the news, or when security-minded businesses become aware of new technologies like encryption, that just opens the door to a new conversation for us. Cloud services was huge for us in that way. Those business opportunities become sales, and the growth just continues.”
TeamLogic IT is the technology franchise small and medium-sized businesses increasingly rely on for turnkey support. TeamLogic IT’s managed IT services contracts give clients peace of mind around their technology needs and provide franchise owners with a steady, predictable revenue stream. TeamLogic IT now serves a wide and growing variety of clients in every business sector, from tourism and hospitality to healthcare, legal and accounting. Along the way, TeamLogic IT has grown to 100 locations in North America and continues to expand in new and existing markets.
