It Began in 2010
Retired after a 30 year high level career at RadioShack, it didn’t take long for Lou Provost to get weary of the golf course. He missed the thrill of developing and growing a top performing retail sales organization.
Grant Simon a multi-unit franchisee had grown a successful portfolio of franchise brands and businesses over 25 years. A serial entrepreneur, he too was looking for another opportunity.
Both found a great partner in T-Mobile and began opening T-Mobile Premium Retailer locations. Lou in Nashville. Grant in Atlanta.
In 2013 the two met and started sharing advice on growing their markets. Their backgrounds were different. Their strengths were different. But they shared a common vision to grow with T-Mobile. Their conversations soon sparked an idea –together they were stronger. Together they had more support and more resources to drive the growth they wanted. Together their employees would have more opportunities.
Grant and Lou joined forces and formed Spark Wireless in 2014. The merger ignited instant growth. New stores opened Atlanta, Macon, and Spark Wireless expanded into the Tampa market with six stores. In October, they were honored as the #1 T-Mobile Premium Retail Partner in the Southeast.
Today Spark Wireless has 100 stores in the southeast and over 600 employees. And plans for many more.
