Who we’re looking for

While a great deal of passion is deeply rooted in everything we do at Geek Retreat, it is also a business, and making a new business a success is hard work, even with the fantastic model and head start we can give you.

A successful Geek Retreat store operates on three key offerings: retail, hospitality, and events. These three aspects need to work together and, if one fails, the others tend to come apart, too. We need franchisees who are willing and able to focus on all three of these pillars of success.

Prior experience in one or more of these areas is highly desirable, but not essential. What is most important is that you are someone who has the right mindset and attitude to deliver these offerings effectively. Our comprehensive training will equip you with everything you need to run a successful Geek Retreat franchise.

As long as you follow our model and give it your all, we are confident that you can succeed!
