Just like many companies that grow into international successes, Experimac was started in a garage. Jim Muir, Experimac’s founder, was looking for a way to offer customers top of the line electronics and equipment, with a specific focus on Apple products, but at an affordable price. Jim started buying used electronics like computers, cell phones, or tablets to buy, repair, and sell.
In a short time, Jim’s idea was so successful he took the jump and opened a retail location. Thus, the Experimac computer repair business was born.
The First Experimac
Our first store was located in West Palm Beach, Florida back in 2009. Jim’s first computer repair business quickly became a success, so he asked his four sons to join his team so that he could provide outstanding service and develop lasting relationships with his customers.
Since the store opened, Experimac has offered superior customer service, expertise in the industry, and affordable prices for used electronics. Because of that, our brand has an impeccable reputation among customers and others in the industry for the quality of our work.
Expanding on a Global Scale
After several years of success in West Palm Beach, Jim knew it was time to expand his brand. That’s when he turned his business into a computer repair franchise opportunity, giving smart business people the chance to join our successful brand. By teaming up with Ray Titus, the founder and CEO of United Franchise Group in 2015, Experimac has been able to grow into an international opportunity.
When Jim and Ray Titus joined forces, Ray said, “This is an incredible opportunity that I feel United Franchise Group can take worldwide.”
Experimac’s Road to Success
By the end of 2012, the store in West Palm Beach began earning over $1 million each year. At the end of 2013, the store grossed over $1.8 million. Now, there are franchises all over the United States and beyond with owners who are learning the Experimac brand and using our proven systems to build their own businesses.
While new franchisees should not expect to be able to replicate the first store’s success immediately, following the Experimac process helps owners build a stronger computer repair business from the start. Even when compared to other franchise opportunities, the Experimac brand allows for a smoother transition into business ownership.
