Benefits for our Franchisees

Superior Gross Profit Margins (GPM) – traditional retailers are lucky to get a 25% GPM – Device Pitstop is currently running at about 60% GPM – so for every $1 in sales, traditional retailers have 25 cents left over to pay bills with, whereas Device Pitstop stores have about 60 cents…that’s a huge advantage.
