He invested in these retail operations himself, as it has become difficult to obtain loans for startup businesses. He decided that it was more profitable to invest in a franchise rather than open up his own independent store. He recognized that Wireless Zone was an experienced player in the industry and could provide the kind of support he needed to succeed.
A busy family man with three children, he has maintained his position as a full time stockbroker while building up his mobile phone empire. He is able to do all this because he doesn’t have to be physically present in the stores. As a franchise owner, he has managers who handle the day to day running of the store. This allows him to leverage his time. He is, however, still responsible for overseeing the operations of the stores. Because mobile phones are a fast growing industry, and Engler is operating in upscale neighborhoods, his stores have continued to thrive.
