• Liquid Capital Required
Yakety Yak is a multi-carrier wireless superstore franchise that offers a unique shopping experience from leading brands such as Sprint®, Nextel®, T-Mobile®, Verizon®, Amp'd Mobile®, Alltel®, Cricket®, Motorola® and Bluetooth®, just to name a few.
Rather than limiting customers to a single product or service, as "exclusive carrier retailers" do, our stores promote an environment where our customers are "consulted with" not "sold to". We assist customers in choosing the wireless products and services that best fit their needs without the bias of exclusive dealers. We have found that this customer-centric approach allows our franchisees to experience heightened word of mouth advertising and unprecedented customer loyalty.
How Long has Yakety Yak Been in Business?
Our success story starts with college friends who wanted to create a unique buying experience in the wireless industry. Frustrated with the lack of options in the marketplace, in the spring of 1999, Jared Turner and Jimmy Kindred opened their first Yakety Yak Wireless Superstore in Mesa, Arizona. They quickly developed partnerships and revolutionary marketing strategies to grow the Yakety Yak brand.
What Kind of Training and Support Does Yakety Yak Offer?
Support is the cornerstone of our franchise system. The strengths of this system can be attributed to constant monitoring of industry changes. Yakety Yak's support team coaches store owners how to operate and manage a successful business using regional, on-site, and distance learning methodologies.
