Cellular Sales wrapped up 2016 by reaching an important milestone. On Nov. 23, we opened our 600th location in Brewster, N.Y., at 1511 Route 22 just next to ACME Markets in the Lakeview Shopping Center.
The regional director for this area, Nichole Torchio was very excited about the opening and said, “This is a big milestone for us. We’re excited to be in Brewster, and thrilled we’ve grown to the point that Cellular Sales now has 600 stores in the country.”
Nichole is among the more than 5,000 employees who work for Cellular Sales. The Brewster store will not only mark the 600th store nationwide, but also the milestone of surpassing 40 New York locations. Another area of tremendous growth came with the 2016 expansion of Cellular Sales to the west coast. In 2016 alone, Cellular Sales opened locations in five new states, expanding our reach to 34 states across the U.S.
Cellular Sales started in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1993 as a single store. Dane and Margaret Scism purchased the company in 1993, expanding to 600 stores in just under 25 years. The incredible growth of Cellular Sales, seen in that short amount of time, has been recognized by Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 list. Over the past nine years the company has made the list eight times, which highlights the nation’s fastest-growing privately owned retailers.
CEO Dane Scism attributes the success of Cellular Sales to the company’s focus on customer satisfaction and keeping the customer’s needs as the highest priority. Regional Director John Stevens agrees by saying, “To be a part of a company that values customer service the way we do is something truly special. We look forward to showing that customer-first experience to everyone that comes through the doors of our Cellular Sales locations.”
Cellular Sales is continuing to expand and is passionate about maintaining and cultivating relationships with its customers all over the country.
