Leading Wireless Accessory Company Hires VP of Franchise and Regional Franchise Business Directors to Support Franchise Growth and Operations

CELLAIRIS LOGOALPHARETTA, Ga., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellairis, an industry leader in providing cutting-edge tech accessories, today announced three new hires for their expanded franchise executive and management team. James Thornton joins Cellairis as the vice president of franchise and a member of the executive team, along with Frank Quinn, eastern franchise business director and Sid Fender, western franchise business director. As seasoned retail experts, Thornton and his team aim to stabilize, systematize, and grow the domestic franchise business, support new franchise concept development, enhance communication between the franchisees, insure compliance to the brand, and improve unit economics and Cellairis profitability.Thornton is a creative senior executive with over 35 years of experience in retail operations with companies such as 7-Eleven, Blockbuster, and Papa John's. He holds 15 years of profit and loss leadership experience in international franchise development and business to consumer environments with global leaders. With previous positions as the regional vice president of Papa John's International and senior vice president of the western region of Blockbuster Inc., Thornton will oversee the strategic direction, expansion, and operation of the franchise department.Supporting Thornton are Sid Fender, western franchise business director, and Frank Quinn, eastern franchise business director. Fender holds 30 years of operational retail management experience as regional vice president of operations and regional director of operations in both retail auto parts and home movie entertainment, while Quinn has spent the past 30 years in the retail industry, holding senior level operations and marketing positions for well-known companies such as 7-Eleven, Sunoco, and Family Dollar stores. Both men have previously worked with Thornton and are optimistic and eager about this new opportunity to collaborate. Fender and Quinn are tasked with developing relationships with franchises, driving revenue, and ensuring compliance for their respective region."For Cellairis to maintain a position as an industry leader, it is imperative that we continue to grow and expand not only geographically, but on a corporate level to support our growth system wide," said Taki Skouras, CEO of Cellairis. "After hiring James and mapping out what his role would entail, we knew that in order for James to be successful, he would need to build the right team. Given his extensive background in franchising, we called on him to bring in the right players for the job. I am confident that the three new additions to our franchising department will improve the strength of our franchise system and help grow our organization."Cellairis eagerly unveils two key initiatives, spearheaded by Thornton and his franchise department, which aim to improve customer experience, increase revenue, and refresh the Cellairis brand image:
  • The Shout! custom case builder, previously only available online or through the mobile app, will now be introduced in-store at a majority of Cellairis' corporate owned stores as well as some franchise locations. The Shout! in-store experience allows consumers to create customized cell phone cases – the same easy concept as online – with the added convenience of a hands-on experience and immediate product turnaround. Shout! in-store offers consumers infinite design possibilities to create a case as unique as the individual. Shout! cases retail between $39.99-$59.99 and are currently available for the iPhone 5S/5/5C, 4/4s, iPod Touch 5, iPad 2/3, iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S5, and Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
  • Cellairis seeks to improve consumers' in-store experience and increase revenue with added features and new branding materials that include revamped lifestyle images, new messaging, more visible prices, and clearer category visuals and identifiers. Cellairis plans to incorporate these new components in future franchise locations and projects to have virtually the entire system involved by year's end. The initiative, developed in large part to meet consumer demand, will be guided by Thornton and team.
Cellairis, committed as ever to providing customers with a personable and unique shopping experience, consistently strives to introduce innovative ways to grow the brand.

Summer Fashion

Fashion trends are constantly changing. Some trends go out of style, only to make a comeback years later. Some are here to stay. It is fun to mix vintage looks with a modern twist!

Some trends go out of style, only to make a comeback years later. Some are here to stay. It is fun to mix vintage looks with a modern twist! The carefree feeling of summer paired with the blend of fun, bright colors makes the season the perfect time to show off your style!There are those few staple pieces that we break out every summer: the cutoff jean shorts, the bright flip-flops, the fun summer tank. But here are some new ideas to try on for size!
  1. Sunhat- This accessory is not only very charming, but also quite functional! A sunhat provides the perfect amount of shade for those not-a-cloud-in-sight type of days, it can mask a bad hair day, and it goes with all of the summer pastel pieces! Get yourself one today for the ultimate summer style while protecting your skin from the hot, summer sun.
  2. The maxi – Whether it’s a dress or a skirt, the maxi is the perfect middle ground between modesty and style. This look is incredibly comfortable and can be worn in so many different ways! You can dress it up with some wedges and a statement necklace or go with a more casual look with a cute crop top. Either way, your look will be flawless.
  3. Sunglasses- Eye protection is a must in the summer sun, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have some fun with it!  Block out the UV rays with some neon frames or go with the classic aviator look. And you don’t even have to break the bank! While you might be craving an expensive pair of sunnies, there are tons of fun colors and styles that are affordable. Instead of buying one expensive pair to rock the entire summer, opt for less expensive options so you can have plenty to match your different outfits! Share the wealth! You have a lot of looks to pair them with this season
  4. Printed anything- Whether it’s a pair of Palazzo pants, a gorgeous sundress, or your new little swimsuit, choose a bold print! Pay attention to the hot summer colors you can mix and match with. Mint is very popular and can be paired with coral, pink, sea foam green, and many more! And don’t forget to match your clothes with a case to complete your look!
We especially love when multiple styles are mixed into one look. This outfit has the perfect pairing of a printed crop top and a sunhat for a laid back weekend!
