Running a CT Business

franchise pic3 Running a CT Business

Because Computer Troubleshooters is a fairly flexible franchise, you’ll find that our franchisees around the country (and especially around the world) are a diverse group.  Most come from technical backgrounds, but some come from sales, marketing , or operations backgrounds and hire techs.   Most work from home, but some open offices, service centers, or even retail storefronts.   Most stay small, with less than 3 or 4 employees in total, while others grow to 8, 9, or more.   Our system is designed to let you make some choices regarding how your business is structured to better suit your local environment and your personal preferences.  However regardless of how you choose to structure your business, you’ll be providing onsite and remote technical services to local small businesses and residential users in and around your area.
