About Wireless Zone

Wireless Zone®, a Verizon Authorized Retailer

The Wireless Zone® franchise system is the largest independent, carrier-exclusive, wireless retailer in the country. The relationship with Verizon Wireless is a highly sought-after, invaluable advantage from the country’s most advanced wireless technology carrier.

Accomplishments exclusive to Verizon Wireless:

-Nation’s largest 4G LTE network
-America’s first nationwide 3G wireless broadband network
-Consistently delivers the most advanced wireless technology available
-A brand people trust (not an exclusive claim, but no less important)
-Our franchisees instantly inherit the benefits
-The Wireless Zone® model is an exclusive carrier model instead of multi-carrier due to the benefits exclusivity brings to our franchisees, their customers, and our organization. Going with a single carrier allows our franchisees to carry reduced inventory, receive preferred services from our carrier, and present to our customers an expert level of knowledge about the products and services we offer.

Combine the technology exclusive to Verizon Wireless with years of experience in the wireless industry, and the result is the Wireless Zone® franchise system. That is an unmatched asset for franchisees and an unrivaled experience for customers.
