NerdsToGo: One of the Best Options When Looking for a Recession-Resistant Franchise
The NerdsToGo Difference
As a potential recession looms over the economy, many have become fearful for their job security and losing their sole source of income to support themselves and their families. What many may not know is that franchising is a great option in these trying times, especially with a model such as NerdsToGo®.
Since 2003, NerdsToGo has provided a simple path to overcoming the pain points of technology. Friendly and approachable Nerds offer solutions for efficiency and security for small to medium-sized businesses, as well as the individual who needs help with personal computers, devices and home networks.

Today, their locations throughout the United States have helped countless customers with a wide range of technology needs.
Recently, as many companies have become either partially or fully remote, NerdsToGo’s services have become critical now more than ever. This need, and NerdsToGo’s proven business model, gives their franchisees the support and security they need to weather challenging economic climates, making franchising with NerdsToGo a great option to turn to in these uncertain times.
The Growth of Remote Work
Since the first quarter of 2020, we’ve experienced a dramatic shift in remote work trends and expectations. Most employers were ill-prepared for their workforce to work from home, but thanks to technology such as video conferencing services, direct messaging platforms, and screen-sharing capabilities, remote working is going smoothly for many businesses.
Now, employers are embracing flexible schedules for their remote teams worldwide, leading to new remote work trends and more remote work options.
With several studies conducted on the growth of remote work, trends have appeared to support the idea that remote working is here to stay, at least for the next few years. Of course, there will always be those who prefer working in an office. However, with the growth of fully-remote and hybrid work schedules, whether employers are ready or not, providing workers with flexible work arrangements will give many companies an advantage over other employers in terms of hiring and business.
Where NerdsToGo Fits in
This growth in remote business has allowed NerdsToGo to aggressively target franchise growth across the United States as the demand for in-home technology solutions continues to increase with the continued rise of remote workers and businesses.
“Remote work is a part of the ‘new 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. “NerdsToGo is attractive to many potential franchisees because of its strong business model, customer satisfaction ratings, and outstanding leadership. With an increasing number of organizations realizing the benefits of remote work, the need for an IT company has also risen.”
This is where NerdsToGo shines not only as an organization but as professionals in the field of tech repair. The company offers a large variety of consumer and B2B services which include commercial virus removal and spyware, to name a few.
The NerdsToGo mission is to assist all of their clients with IT support. Technology should only make people’s lives better and easier. When a computer or electronic device breaks or starts to malfunction, it has stopped providing a benefit and has become a problem.
The Franchisees of NerdsToGo
In response to this rapidly-growing need for IT services, NerdsToGo is constantly seeking qualified franchisees to become franchisees to help the brand expand across the United States. To assist, NerdsToGo will supply all franchisees with the resources, training, support, and information required to start, build and maintain a successful business.
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.
NerdsToGo has developed proven world-class business processes that every franchisee can buy into, trusting that the methods shared with them will be a guide to success. These tried and proven methods NerdsToGo provides have led franchisees within their network to create successful businesses.
Why NerdsToGo is a Recession-Proof Franchise
It’s easy to see why business and/or personal needs make recession-resistant industries. Even when times get tough, there will always be goods and services that are impossible, or nearly impossible, to live without. In recessions, businesses that satisfy a need remain stable or perform better.
A great example is that buying new in a recession often isn’t an option. The low-cost alternative is either to repair an existing item, or replace it with a used item. In many cases, especially for IT services, it’s typically not wise to buy something new when a problem arises versus trying to get it fixed. That’s why many look to NerdsToGo for solutions when having technical troubles.
By providing IT solutions for both business and personal needs, NerdsToGo is servicing a never-ending market that will only continue to grow as people continue to need help with technology.
