Franchise News Release: Huntersville, NC - (Dec-9-2003)

Medical Entrepreneur Heals Huntersville's Computers

At the age of 17, when most kids his age were playing ball or gabbing with friends, Jerry Goedert began a lengthy career in the healthcare industry. Many years later his experience in the medical field inspired him to become an entrepreneur and to open two thriving businesses. Now Goedert is bringing his entrepreneurial spirit and high-tech skills to Huntersville as the owner of a new Franchise with Geeks On Call® - the nation's premier provider of on-site computer services. With Goedert's computer technicians making house calls, the residents and small businesses of Huntersville finally have access to experienced professionals who can mend ailing PCs.

Jerry Goedert got an early start in the professional world when he became an X-ray technician at a young age. In turn, this prompted him to earn a Bachelor's of Science in Healthcare Management, which then enabled him to move up the career ladder into a management role. After numerous years spent running the business affairs for healthcare centers, Goedert decided to put his experience to good use by launching his own medical billing company. The tremendous success of this endeavor enabled him to expand his entrepreneurial horizons by founding a second company that focused solely on selling high-end software to automate the practice of medical billing. Shortly thereafter, this new company began to provide computer repairs, upgrades, and maintenance to ensure that its clients - PCs could smoothly run the aforementioned billing software. Before long, Goedert found himself performing many of the same services that are offered by Geeks On Call®, so it made perfect sense to enhance his customer support capabilities by joining the Geeks' family.

With the addition of Goedert's franchise, Geeks On Call® now has four different Franchises serving the cities in and around Charlotte, NC. The premise of Geeks On Call® is simple: gone are the days of lugging computers to a local technician for updates or repairs. Instead, Geeks On Call® brings complete computer support directly to homes and businesses. Everything the Geeks' technicians need to complete their tasks is nestled inside their sleek Chrysler PT Cruisers, which are emblazoned with the Geeks On Call® logo and toll-free phone number.

Founded in 1999, Geeks On Call® initially served the areas of Norfolk and Virginia Beach, VA. In response to its tremendous success, Geeks planted its first franchise in April 2001. Since then, approximately 120 franchises have been cultivated throughout the United States. This rapid growth is a reflection of the public's hunger for quality on-site computer assistance. Prior to Geeks On Call®, residential customers in need of computer support often faced tremendous expense and lengthy down-time?with no guarantee of satisfaction. The expedient, reliable services provided by Geeks On Call® also have become a necessity for small businesses, giving them exposure to licensed technicians, and eliminating the cost of hiring a full-time IT staff. Now everyone has access to superior computer repairs, upgrades, troubleshooting, training, and wired/wireless networking - without emptying their wallets.

Currently, Geeks On Call® offers service in the following areas: Fredericksburg, Hampton Roads, and Northern VA; Washington, D.C.; Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Huntersville, the Outer Banks, and Raleigh, NC; Annapolis, Baltimore, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Columbia, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Laurel, and Rockville, MD; Cedar Hill, The Colony, Dallas, Denton, DeSoto, Frisco, Fort Worth, and Plano, TX; Arvada, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Denver, CO; Lee's Summit and Kansas City, MO; Jacksonville, Lakeland, Melbourne, Orlando, and Tampa, FL.
