Experimac Opening Soon in Cumming, GA
PRE-OWNED APPLE® DEVICE BUSINESS EXPERIMAC DEBUTS IN CUMMING
EMPTY NESTERS FIND NEW CONCEPT AND LIFE EXCITING
(CUMMING, Georgia)— Travis and Becky Howe will be opening their pre-owned Apple® device reseller Experimac at 1586 Market Place Blvd in June. Opening the third franchise in this new but blossoming chain, the couple will provide high-demand Apple® devices like its iPhone®, iPad® and MacBook® lines at costs significantly less than their new retail price equivalents, as well as repair and upgrade services, product resale and more.
With over 25 years of senior management experience, Travis Howe’s titles have included president, divisional vice president, sales and marketing vice president and more. When the last company he worked for declared bankruptcy, however, he decided he had had enough of the corporate grind and opted for a business that was truly his.
“I was immediately grabbed by Experimac’s unique approach and felt there was a big hole in the market in offering pre-owned Apple® products at the retail level,” said Howe. “Experimac fills that hole by giving customers eager for Apple® devices a level of access to them that they might not otherwise have.”
A recent addition to United Franchise Group, the family of brands with over 30 years of franchising experience, Experimac is a rapidly expanding concept. United Franchise Group plans to open 25 Experimac stores by the end of 2015, and plans to have 100 by the end of 2016.
While many other 62-year-olds might immediately dismiss the thought of starting their own business, Travis Howe is optimistic as he plots his company’s future. His decision to own his own business, he says, is coming at exactly the right time in his life.
“When I really think about it, the time is perfect,” said Travis Howe. “Our kids are out of college and I still have a lot of drive to do something new. Becky and I have been fully engaged and excited about the opportunity, especially as it’s something that we can do together. To be able to not only start my own business, but do so with an exciting new concept like the one Experimac provides, is a far more appealing option than retirement.”
Experimac is the latest addition to the United Franchise Group family of brands, joining a team with over 30 years of franchise experience. As part of the $400-billion-plus Apple® market, Experimac provides pre-owned Apple® computers and devices, repair of laptops, phones and tablets, trade-ins of existing devices, sales of accessories and software and upgrades.
