Ray Titus is a widely recognized leader in the franchise industry. He founded Signarama with a single store in 1986, and it has now grown to become the world leader in the full-service sign industry. Today, Ray leads all of the United Franchise Group brands and service companies to tremendous success. The brands have all been awarded as leaders in their industries. His $450 million dollar franchising company will be greatly enhanced by the addition of the Experimac opportunity.
Jim Muir opened the first Experimac store in West Palm Beach, Florida in 2009. To keep up with the store’s rapid growth, he added his four sons to the staff with the goal of establishing long-lasting relationships with their customers while providing the best service possible. Through their Apple® related expertise, dedication to customer service, and ability to offer exceptional prices on used Apple® equipment, they watched their reputation, success and profits improve, culminating in sales revenue of $1,834,861 in 2013.
“Having known Jim Muir and his family from our church and children’s school, I was comfortable investing in their concept of selling and repairing pre owned computers and mobile devices. This is an incredible opportunity that I feel United Franchise Group can take worldwide." -Ray Titus
