If you’re looking to compete with the big guys, such as Geek Squad or AT&T’s ConnectTech, by starting your own PC repair business (and leverage a well-respected franchise), you might want to consider Computer Troubleshooters for starters. The franchisor was recently rated the highest in customer satisfaction by Franchise Business Review, a leading market research firm. Business owners rated the franchise on several criteria, such as financial opportunities, training and support, as well as overall franchisee satisfaction, according to the report.

As an aside, the number of independent PC repair shops with the trendy name “Geek” in them are too numerous to list here, but what’s in a name. The main thing to consider when purchasing a franchise is reputation, established territories and cost, to name a few. Besides, the word “Geek” has been so overused and so diluted in the industry that it would be hard to differentiate one business from the other at first glance. That’s the issue with giving your business a descriptive name, and Computer Troubleshooters is no exception. But at least it won’t go out of style over time.

One other PC Repair Franchise worth noting, for reasons of objectivity, is FastTeks. We did a quick check with the Better Business Bureau

from a consumer standpoint and they consistently got high marks or an “A” rating by customers.
