Tech Entrepreneur Opens Tigard NerdsToGo

2022-05-03T14:15:44-04:00May 3rd, 2022|Tags: , , , |

Experienced Business Professional Brings Expertise to Tigard Market.

TIGARD, Ore.  NerdsToGo®, a leading provider of IT Solutions for Business and Home, opened a brand new location in Tigard, Oregon. The newest location (12540 SW Main Street, Suite 110) is under the direction of owner and operator Rory Dunnaback.

Dunnaback, along with his father John Dunnaback, opened a Milwaukie NerdsToGo in 2018. A Portland resident, Rory saw a geographical competitive advantage to opening a store in Tigard, which is west of Portland. The Tigard launch serves a growing need in metro areas for tech services as the reliance on such services becomes more important than ever post-pandemic.

“A lot had to do with geography,” he said. The location fits with his marketing strategy and goal of having more exposure with locations east and west of Portland.

The Tigard location offers even greater brand exposure due to the retail storefront and strong downtown community surrounding it. This store location on Tigard’s main street brings great visibility. It’s also the first store in the U.S. to initiate the recent brand refresh. Dunnaback’s first location is in downtown Milwaukie on Main Street–those in the area might have seen the signature yellow Nerd vans around town or have worked with the friendly, approachable Nerds as they help make technology less intimidating.

As local economies begin to come back to main streets, this is great for business and brand recognition in the heart of the downtown area, Dunnaback said.

“I’m really proud to have both of my businesses on main streets,” he said. “It’s very small-town America.” Dunnaback was named Franchisee of the Year and won the Nerdy Award earlier this year, which recognizes an individual that excels in helping customers and employees achieve their full potential.

As a managed service provider, NerdsToGo offers a variety of services for small to medium sized businesses including: Server and PC Monitoring, Data Back-up and Disaster Recovery, Cloud Hosting and Microsoft Office Support. NerdAssure, a proprietary bundle of IT services scaled and priced for small businesses, is created for small companies who don’t have the resources to employ full time IT specialists. Home services tailored to the individual include Computer Repair, Internet trouble-shooting and cybersecurity solutions.

Dunnaback’s interest in opening NerdsToGo began with a desire to open a family business with his dad. Yet, he’s long been involved with IT solutions, as well as the role technology plays in people’s lives since majoring in information technology at Michigan State and then establishing a career in healthcare technology. In addition to operating NerdsToGo franchises, Rory is an involved member of his community, serving as President of the Downtown Milwaukie Business Association.

Rory is also a member of the Westside Professional Business Association that has been around since the late 1970s. He is also on the board of the North Clackamas Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Tigard Chamber of Commerce and a Chair of the North Clackamas Education Foundation.

Dunnaback will host a grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting on May 5th at 2pm.

2022-04-27T09:14:48-04:00April 27th, 2022|Tags: , , , |

Emerging technology brand unveils rebrand with an eye-catching, contemporary look

CARROLLTON, Texas — NerdsToGo®, a fast growing information technology (IT) solutions and technology repair services franchise for both business and home, is moving forward as fast as it’s growing, with a new visual look and feel, with a new color palette, font, and restaged brand character, “Nerdy.”

“By updating and reimagining our brand identity, NerdsToGo® has an opportunity to stand out in the crowd more than ever, digitally and in person,” said Jim Howe, Brand President of NerdsToGo. “The refinement reinforces NerdsToGo® as an emerging brand in the technology industry. We are positioning the brand for the future while maintaining customer confidence in our Nerds abilities and capabilities which encompass complete business and home IT technology needs.”

NerdsToGo is adding more locations in new territories. They are projected to open over ten additional locations in 2022. “The refinement of our logo and our ‘Nerdy’ character achieves our intent of contemporizing and elevating the brand while retaining the qualities of approachability and tech expertise the brand stands for,” said Jennifer Herskind, Chief Marketing Officer.

The new logo was developed by St. Louis-based advertising agency Rodgers Townsend. The NerdsToGo franchisees were introduced to the new logo and brand refinement while attending the first annual convention in Dallas, Texas, earlier this year. “It was time. Our franchisees were ready for an updated look and feel. Coming out of convention we saw a renewed energy from our franchisees embracing the brand direction and eager to update their locations,” added Herskind.

“The new refinement helps the company be more competitive in the marketplace,” said Rory Dunnaback, NerdsToGo® 2021 Franchisee of the Year award winner and the first adopter of the new brand identity at his newly opened Tigard, Oregon location. “The update to our look helps attract new customers in all technology areas, allowing us to evolve and grow as technological advancements continue.”

2022-02-18T10:21:11-05:00February 18th, 2022|Tags: , , , |

Leading computer and technology repair service seeks to provide assistance to small-and-medium sized businesses in a new market.

CARROLLTON, Texas — NerdsToGo, a leading computer and technology repair services franchise, is looking to expand its presence in Milwaukee by approximately eight units, as the increasing demand for in-home technology solutions continues to rise.

“With so many businesses offering remote work for their employees, the services NerdsToGo provides are more valuable now than ever before,” said Mark Jameson, chief support and development officer at Propelled Brands. “NerdsToGo has an amazing opportunity in the Milwaukee market, and we are confident that our proven business model along with the support and resources provided, will allow our franchisees to thrive.”

The NerdsToGo business model has created a culture of excellence where Nerds are given the opportunity to grow and profit from their skills, while offering a high standard of professional service to customers.

“When Propelled Brands acquired NerdsToGo, I knew they would take the FASTSIGNS business model and bring those tools to the NerdsToGo franchise,” said Chuck Bailey, a NerdsToGo franchise owner. “NerdsToGo bridges a gap that exists between the large corporate IT services companies and the mom and pop stores that are out there. Propelled Brands is setting up NerdsToGo to be a lean, mean, franchising machine, and I am excited to be a part of that transformation.”

Prospective franchisees do not need experience in information technology, but should have a strong desire to grow a successful business in their local community, developing relationships with small business owners to become their outsourced IT department.

The initial investment for a NerdsToGo franchise is approximately $146,200$217,050, including a $49,750 franchise fee. Ideal candidates have a net worth of $300,000, of which $80K is liquid. Additionally, NerdsToGo offers a special incentive for veterans and first responders, including paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, sheriffs, and firefighters, including a 50% reduction on the franchise fee – a savings of $24,875.

NerdsToGo Seeks Franchise Expansion in Michigan, With Goal Set to Develop 25 New Units in the Market

2021-12-08T10:07:35-05:00December 8th, 2021|Tags: , , , |

Leading computer and technology repair service franchise expands into a new market.

CARROLLTON, Texas — NerdsToGo, a leading computer and technology repair services franchise, is looking to expand its presence in Michigan by approximately 25 units, as demand for in-home technology solutions continues to rise.

“With more businesses offering remote work for their employees, NerdsToGo has an opportunity to expand now more than ever before,” said Mark Jameson, chief support and development officer at Propelled Brands. “We see great growth potential in the Michigan market and are confident that our proven business model along with the support and resources provided, will allow franchisees to thrive.”

CARROLLTON, TexasNerdsToGo®, a leading computer and technology repair services franchise, is looking to grow its footprint in the Dallas Metroplex by approximately 30 new units by 2024, as demand for in-home technology solutions continues to increase with more professionals working from home.

“Remote work is a part of the ‘next normal,’ and we see a huge opportunity for managed IT services for both small and medium-sized companies,” said Mark Jameson, Chief Support and Development Officer at Propelled Brands. “We see great growth potential in the DFW Metroplex and are confident that our proven business model along with the support and resources provided, will allow franchisees to thrive.”

In September 2020, NerdsToGo was acquired by Propelled Brands. Under new leadership, the NerdsToGo brand and its franchisees will receive ongoing training, support and unparalleled resources that will position the brand as a leader among the industry and in the local communities it serves.

“When I was in search of a franchise that allowed me to build a business to help my community, I found NerdsToGo, and immediately gravitated toward it because of the growth opportunity it presented,” said Woody Huffines, owner of the McKinney NerdsToGo franchise. “Now, being acquired by such a successful umbrella brand, I am looking forward to the mature infrastructure and drive that NerdsToGo will now be able to adopt.”

NerdsToGo is currently seeking qualified franchisees to be owner operators to help the brand grow across the United States. Prospective franchisees do not need experience in information technology but should have a strong desire to grow a successful business in their local community, developing relationships with small business owners to become their outsourced IT department.

The initial investment for a NerdsToGo franchise is approximately $146,200$217,050, including a $49,750 franchise fee. Ideal candidates have a net worth of $300,000 of which $80K is liquid.
