Experimac Opens in Arvada CO

On Aug. 29, Rick Salinas began leveraging his decades of experience in the software development industry by bringing Experimac, the new concept that provides pre-owned computers and devices; repair and upgrade services for laptops, phones and tablets; trade-ins of existing devices; and sales of accessories, to Arvada. Located at 8410 Wadsworth Blvd., Salinas and his son Zach bring the newest concept from industry veteran United Franchise Group to serve customers throughout Greater Denver area by providing popular Apple® devices at prices far below retail prices.

After 32 years in Corporate America in the software development industry, Salinas decided it was time for a change and time to strike out on his own in business with his son. With a strong technical background and a pension for Apple® products, he was drawn to Experimac.

“I will be able to leverage my technological background with Experimac,” Salinas said. “We are able to help customers understand their Apple products and help them work through whatever issues they may have. From broken screens to helping them select the right product to suit their needs, Experimac will be there to help.”

Experimac’s 100th Store to Open in Cape Town

August 11, 2016 // Franchising.com // Cape Town, South Africa – It’s a landmark event that’s no small potatoes. But truth be told, potatoes played a big role in making it all happen.

On Friday, Aug. 19, Experimac, the one-of-a-kind retail storefront concept that specializes in sales of pre-owned Apple® computers, devices and much more – will be celebrating the sale of its 100th store, scheduled to open this October in Cape Town, South Africa.

Julian and Cesca Nieuwoudt will be introducing and growing the Experimac brand in South Africa as master license partners. To say that 43-year-old Julian and 38-year-old Cesca are making an extreme career transition would be an understatement.

For two decades, Julian has been in the farming industry, specializing in potato seed production. With Cesca joining him in the business since marrying 15 years ago, they grew to become one of South Africa’s top 20 potato producers. But two years ago, the couple received an offer for their land from South Africa’s largest carrot grower, who was looking for additional farming land. They decided the time was ripe for change and sold their farm.

Looking for a new, exciting opportunity with outstanding growth potential, Julian discovered Experimac while doing some online research and was immediately intrigued

by the retailer that not only specializes in the sale of pre-owned Apple® computers and devices, but also offers repair of laptops, phones and tablets; trade-ins of existing devices; software and system updates; and sales of accessories.

Operating under the United Franchise Group umbrella, the Experimac brand was launched in November 2014 and now has 51 locations open in the United States with 52 additional stores in various stages of development.

“We couldn’t be happier to now be entering South Africa,” said Jim Muir, founder of the Experimac concept, “and to have this be our 100th store in such a short period of time.”
