Why TeamLogic IT Franchise Makes Sense for Millennial Entrepreneurs
A hands-on, technology franchise with strong growth potential that can be heavily leveraged through social media appeals to younger owners
As they overtake the baby boomer generation in terms of business ownership, millennials are definitely putting their stamp on how they like to do things. And while they don’t speak with one voice, several trends are emerging when it comes to what types of businesses they want to own, and how they see themselves in that ownership role. For starters, they want a business that is scalable, and that they can grow not just in terms of sales volume, but also product offerings and services. They also want something that’s fun, and that they can leverage on social media as well as through traditional advertising. In short, they want a TeamLogic IT technology franchise.
Strong start, steady growth has appeal
“We talk to a lot of men and women who fall into the millennial age demographic, and while they are very young, in some instances they are very sharp when it comes to what they want,” says Chuck Lennon, Executive Vice President. “They see people going out and opening up restaurants and boutiques, how expensive that is and how hard it is to succeed even in a strong retail climate. They are looking for something that is less of a headache, is more reasonable in terms of start-up costs, and that still engages their sense of community and value.”
When they learn about TeamLogic IT technology franchises, and how their managed IT services create income that’s both steady and predictable, they are intrigued. And when they learn that a TeamLogic IT franchise owner is doing more than just break-fix work, but rather building close relationships with clients, they get even more interested, Lennon says.
Opportunity to open in new, existing markets
“They are very excited about the value proposition we offer, which is so much more than just being ‘the IT guy’ to call when something goes wrong,” he notes. “They want to own a business that challenges them, and also delivers for clients.”
And, he points out, they also like the idea of being a trailblazer in terms of bringing a TeamLogic IT computer franchise to their community or opening in an area where the brand already has a respected presence.
“Millennials are sharp enough to know what they don’t know,” Lennon points out. “They learn that we have amazing initial and ongoing training, so they open fully supported. They also like the idea of being in an area where they can tap into the knowledge of our strong and growing network of experienced owners. It’s the best of both worlds, and they are never out there alone.”
TeamLogic IT is the technology franchise small and medium-sized businesses increasingly rely on for turnkey support.
