Status update: Seeking new relationships.
The business life is good for Brian Laoruangroch, CEO and founder of Green Mobile. "Since [Inc.com's] article, we were contacted by many readers to open one of our stores," he says. Green Mobile now has three franchise locations and Laorangroch is looking to expand. "I have spent the last two years converting our business model into a franchise that I will be able to grow like McDonalds, Subway, and Cartridge World," he says. Two more franchises are on schedule to open this summer and Laoruangroch hopes to open 10 more across the Midwest by the end of the year.
