Cell Phone Repair Franchise Systems, Inc., is the most widely known and respected brand in the cell phone and gadget repair industry. CPR® (www.cpr-stores.com) is the largest player in the industry with an anticipated 200 locations slated by the year 2013.
Scale Finance provides CFO services for CPR and facilitated a senior debt bridge financing for the company recently.
CPR is an independent service organization dedicated to the on-premises repair of cell phones, iPods, and electronic devices. CPR’s conveniently located retail outlets offer “while-you-wait” service and speedy iPhone screen replacement repairs for every smart phone conceived. Once upon a time, broken cell phones were dismissed cursorily as ”throw-away” gadgets – cheap to buy and cheap to replace. Those days are gone, as the newest models are more complex, more pricey, and have taken functionality to brave new levels barely conceived of just a few years ago. Because these gadgets are less disposable – savvy consumers are more likely to have damaged units repaired.
From water damage to cracked or shattered LCDs, CPR®’s own in-house service technicians have the capability to fully restore any salvageable damaged electronic devices on the spot, typically within an hour.
