centertec are launching the world’s first virtual reality (VR) franchise store, opening the door to VR appearing in shopping centres near you very soon. centertec are promising customers will be playing the best VR games and experiences. The company believe that the concept is fresh and viable, stating “centertec was designed to be an incredibly powerful business, one that is ripe for immediate expansion.” The stores are described as “clean, modern, and inviting”, with sufficient space to allow customers to play the biggest, and most immersive VR titles.
The concept is promising – most people don’t have the space available for full room-scale VR games and experiences, that’s if they do have the head-mounted display (HMD) and necessary hardware, though how willing people will be to pay cash for limited play sessions remains to be seen.
Bill Tustin, centertec’s CEO, is enthusiastic about the franchise: “We will provide business support that is out of this world. From site selection and layout, to state-of-the-art tech, training and support, centertec is a virtually perfect way to make your mark.”
Daniel Taylor, centertec’s co-founder adds; “With more than 43 million users worldwide, VR is a dynamic and rapidly evolving market, projected to be worth $30 billion by 2020. A significant driver of this consumer appetite is gaming, where experts agree: the future of the industry lies in VR.”
The company will be exhibiting at the International Franchise Expo in New York City, June 15th to 17th, to give franchise owners a taste of the support and business plan they have outlined. To find out more about centertec and opening a franchise, take a look at their site here.
