WorldWide Wireless Franchise Information:

Thank you for taking a closer look at WorldWide Wireless!


At WorldWide Wireless, we have created a great niche among the big box retailers, as well as other cellular franchises. What is it, then, that sets us apart? What allows us to confidently back our company motto, "Where Service and Added Value Connect"? The answer is simple: We specialize in one carrier, which enables us to be experts when talking to our customers, educating our sales staff, and training our franchisees. This approach makes our program simpler to manage and easier to staff, while creating a one-on-one working relationship with our carrier—Sprint/Nextel.

Other advantages of an exclusive Sprint/Nextel relationship:

  • One carrier means it's less costly to start-up a franchise—we can in-store stock all phones. No waiting for our customers to activate their phones means no waiting for us to generate a sale!
  • We are able to in-store stock most accessories that accompany the phones we sell, including the latest in Bluetooth technology. Greater accessory selection equals more sales volume for franchisees!
  • We receive carrier promotions not offered to multi-carrier locations.
  • It is easy to keep informed and up-to-date on products, rate plans, data solutions, etc. which results in a high quality of customer care.
  • Most of all, we are not just sales clerks, but rather cellular consultants.
  • Being exclusive, we have key relationships that keep us ahead of other multi-carrier franchises.

Of course, in today's fast-paced world of technology, being a communications expert goes beyond the realm of mobile phones. Our sales staff is trained to assist customers when making wise decisions on data solutions such as email, GPS navigation and much more. When customers come through our doors they are given knowledgeable sales assistance, making them feel confident that they have made the best, well-informed choice. Again, we can proudly stand by our motto, "Where Service and Added Value Connect."

About Our Company and Its Franchising Program

In 1999, our CEO Lou Gagliardi, started with one store in the south suburbs of Chicago. Upon seeing the potential for success, Lou soon began to encourage others to join in the fun of being independent, business owners in the fast-growing world of cellular. Today, we are proud to have 11 retail locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Florida, nine of which are a part of our franchise system. We believe that our franchise program is the best the industry has to offer. Here are just a few things that, we feel, put us a step ahead of, and set us apart from other cellular franchises:

  • On-site Training
    • In addition to training at our corporate office, our training team will come to your location and help you get started.
  • Marketing Department
    • Our unified marketing enables our franchisees to receive the best value in promoting your store and our company
  • Increased Buying Power
    • Our vendor relationships create lower costs. Large volume purchasing and WorldWide Wireless' excellent credit standing give us preferred customer status with our vendors.
  • Continued Product Research
    • We are always looking for new and exciting products to compliment our current lineup of products.
  • Most importantly, we consider our franchisees to be part of our WorldWide Wireless family. We are interested in your success and will do all that we can to keep our family a happy one

Our franchise program is truly a "win, win" for you and any customer that comes to a WorldWide Wireless location. You win because your business will hit the ground running. The customer wins because they receive the "added value" that comes from being served by the highest quality of trained specialists in the field of cellular communication.
