Mobile IT pros change strategy amid COVID-19
Tuesday, April 21, 2020
Clare and Dennis Huspeni launched their NerdsToGo franchise business last year with high hopes for their new traveling IT operation. Now, they're having to tweak their procedures amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Clare, a former call center manager, and Dennis, a former journalist, blitzed networking events and became more involved in the Parker Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Business Alliance. They hired a full-time tech and a part-timer in mid-February before COVID-19 hit.
“It was tough getting through that first year, so we were patting ourselves on the back just a teeny little bit,” Dennis said. “Before this hit, we were really seeing a spike in business, which is why we brought in the second tech.”
