Due to Experimac’s start as a family-based business with our founder and his sons, we are a perfect fit in the family-founded-and-run structure of United Franchise Group. As such, many of the members of the Experimac and UFG franchise development team are Muir and Titus family members. By extension, we think of all our franchise owners as family as we support you in opening and operating your own business. Rest assured that our team is made up of experts in technology, specifically Apple products, and we share that expertise with our franchisees.
CEO of United Franchise Group
With his father Roy as his partner, Ray Titus started Signarama in 1986. In a short period, the concept became so successful that the father and son duo was able to begin franchising. Around the same time, Ray was inspired to use his own acumen and experience to help other entrepreneurs grow their businesses. Thus, United Franchise Group was born. Fast forward to the present, and UFG has over 1,400 franchise units in more than 80 countries.
In addition to being business savvy, Ray is skilled at public speaking and has given several keynote addresses, including at the World Leaders Conference. On top of it all, Ray was named one of the industry’s most influential people on ASI’s Power 50 list in 2010.
Founder and President of Experimac
Jim Muir founded Experimac with the first location in West Palm Beach, Florida back in 2009. His goal to offer affordable Apple products to customers was realized, and his company soon grew due to his business knowledge from running car dealerships. He got the idea for Experimac through his hobby of buying, fixing, and selling used electronics. In 2013, the first Experimac store earned over $1.8 million, which is what inspired Jim to start franchising. In 2015, Jim partnered with Ray Titus and UFG to get the ball rolling on turning his business into a franchise concept.
