Be Part of the $138 Billion Wireless Industry: You Do Not Need Prior Experience to Join an Industry Leader!
We invite you to earn your piece of a $138 billion industry by partnering with one of the nation's largest independent wireless retail franchise companies. The Yakety Yak brand has been established since 1999 with a franchise community that has grown to over 200 opportunities sold, over 40 stores open nationwide and many new locations expected to open for business in the near future. Our nationwide presence has allowed us to create volume pricing and established vendor and supplier relationships to facilitate higher profit potential to our owners.
A Booming Industry
Can you be without your wireless phone for more than one day? As wireless phones and technology are constantly evolving, they have increasingly become more than just a tool to make and receive calls. Instead they have transformed into a platform for internet access, email on the go, GPS with turn by turn directions, picture and video messaging, and more. As of 2007, there were 255 million wireless subscribers and $138 billion dollars were generated in revenue. Since studies predict exponential growth in wireless across multiple platforms, it is our belief small business owners could not be involved in a better industry.
Choice and Flexibility Makes Us Different
Yakety Yak Wireless is a forward thinking company and one of the few franchises of its kind with choices and flexibility in the wireless business. Yakety Yak store owners enjoy the option of offering services from a single or multiple provider lineups, such as Verizon Wireless, Sprint, Alltel, T-Mobile, Cricket and Metro PCS. With Yakety Yak's business model, franchisees may select and customize services specific for their location to produce the greatest revenue possible. Additionally, you may choose from our business models, including our full-scale retail stores and our business in a business model, the Yakety Yak Express. Depending on your goals and finances, we have a business model that will work for you.
Our stores have been recognized and awarded for excellence in nationally publicized industry magazines including Entrepreneur Magazine, RCR News and the cover of Wireless Dealer Magazine. With a catchy name like Yakety Yak, your store(s) will benefit from our branding, and credibility as a national brand.
Yakety Yak's vested owners know what it takes to go above and beyond to deliver speedy and personalized attention. Yakety Yak's customer-centric approach offers unique programs truly designed with the consumer in mind including our phone trade-in program (Yak Swap); bundled accessory deals (Yak Paks); phone repair, unlock, flash, and recycle services and a customer satisfaction follow-up program.
Investment / Training / Support:
Invest in a Solid, Proven Franchise Model
Yakety Yak offers all the advantages of a well established company, without the enormous fees that most franchises charge. With the Yakety Yak model, you do not pay the royalties which are required in most franchise arrangements - often from 6% to 14% of your gross sales, regardless of whether or not you are making a profit at the end of the month. Our goal is to help guide our franchisees to a solid return on their investment and to build a strong business that will continue to grow.
An Affordable Business to Own
Franchisees can open and operate a full-scale Yakety Yak Wireless store or business in a business model with a reasonable level of investment. Many comparable franchises require years of amortization of the initial investment to reach profitability. We are committed to helping you grow your business with minimal out-of-pocket expenses.
Be In Business For Yourself But Not By Yourself!
Take advantage of Yakety Yak's comprehensive training program, support and corporate infrastructure so you will not be navigating the wireless industry alone. Yakety Yak offers a personalized approach with one-on-one coaching and a single point of contact throughout the startup process and ongoing support.
No Previous Industry Experience is Needed
To prepare our franchisees for the highest possible level of success, franchisees have access to our proprietary operations manual and internal website. Our teams also host a comprehensive training program through classroom workshops, mock stores, conference calls and our internal distance learning website. Our 4-6 week industry training program and curriculum encompasses everything you'll need to become an industry expert and open the doors to your new store.
Teams to Back You Up
Yakety Yak has dedicated teams for real estate, marketing, legal, accounting and sales to assist you in successfully operating and managing a profitable business. Yakety Yak also has travel teams available to assist franchisees at their locations when initially opening to the public. Plus, franchisees have access to a network of business-minded peers and entrepreneurs who are willing to share their ideas and experiences.
