Franchise FAQ

Expanding functionality on wireless devices has actually increased demand for new products, services, and most importantly, expert advice. What other product or service is used by every socio-economic group? From CEOs to children, everyone uses a cell phone, smartphone, or tablet. The use is only increasing.

We chose this model because of the benefits exclusivity brings to our franchisees, their customers, and our organization. Going with a single carrier, Verizon, allows our franchisees to carry reduced inventory. It allows the franchisees to receive preferred services from our carrier, and it also enables our franchisees and their sales teams to develop an expert level of knowledge about all the exclusive products and services that Verizon offers that they then can present to our customers.

We are selective in choosing our franchisees. We believe it contributes to a stronger franchise system. The most successful Wireless Zone® franchisees are business-savvy individuals, with or without wireless experience, who believe in exceeding customers’ expectations. In addition, they are confident following a proven system and possess an internal drive to be the best.

Wireless Zone University is one of our strongest assets. Our training programs inside WZU provide a strong foundation in sales and leadership for our franchisees and their leadership teams. Our internal learning resources are custom designed by tenured wireless industry experts, and support learners from onboarding through advanced leadership certifications. In this exciting and fast-changing industry we understand the importance of ongoing training to keep our franchisees current and relevant in today’s marketplace.

We work closely with you on finding the right location, build-out of the location, and initial inventory selection. Once your store opens, your district manager provides ongoing guidance on operational and business functions. Our in-house agency also provides continuing advertising, marketing, and promotional support.

Earnings will vary depending on market conditions, store location, and your own ability to execute on the Wireless Zone® franchise system among other factors. Opening any business involves risk and uncertainty. The Wireless Zone® way provides the tools, resources, and knowledge to help minimize those risks. We have been doing so successfully for over 35 years.

Yes, as part of our effort to make owning a Wireless Zone® franchise as smooth as possible, we do offer limited direct financing. Each franchisee can arrange their own financing as well. The SBA Franchise Registry lists the Wireless Zone® franchise.
