Asheville Native Returns Home To Open First "1 800 905 Geek" Franchise In The Area

Thursday, March 15, 2007

For the first 18 years of his life, Phil Martin called Asheville home. In later years, his entrepreneurial career led him to other cities, yet Asheville continued to hold a special place in his heart. Now he is returning to his Asheville roots in a big way as the owner of the first 1 800 905 GEEK franchise in the area. With Martin and his Geek technician behind the wheel of their signature blue and white Chrysler PT Cruiser, 1 800 905 GEEK delivers a wide range of rapid-response, on-site computer services to Asheville's homes and businesses alike.

For Martin, owning and operating a 1 800 905 GEEK franchise is not just about the computer services he provides—it is also about the people. "I love to solve high-tech problems and see the smiles on my customers' faces," Martin said. "Whether it's helping someone recover from a hard drive failure or installing a computer network for a local business, I know I'm making a difference in people's lives." When asked why he chose Asheville as the location for his 1 800 905 GEEK franchise, he replied "First, this city is amazing. There's no place I'd rather be. And second, I looked around Asheville and realized it needed higher quality computer support. As part of the 1 800 905 GEEK family, I can provide Asheville with the same award-winning services that have made the company a trusted name across America."
