Three friends with drive and a dream… and the help of family and friends to succeed.
Taki Skouras, along with twin brothers Joseph and Jaime Brown, could always be counted on to seize a business opportunity. Each growing up from humble beginnings, they had a deep-rooted respect for the incredible work ethic of their parents. Their families worked hard to make ends meet and always struggled to get ahead. It was their example and “never-give-up” attitude that led Taki, Joseph and Jaime to make sacrifices and discipline themselves throughout their quest for success and innovation.
The guys first met in 1995 while attending college in Florida. To help pay tuition, they started a ‘night club promotions’ business, seizing the opportunity to make a profit on off-nights at local clubs. Instead of spaces sitting empty on a particular night of the week, the three guys would book talent, run the operations, and promote the evening’s event to turn out a crowd.
Four years later, the trio pulled everything they had together and began experimenting with the mall kiosk business. The guys headed to Atlanta, Ga., in early 2000 with the small amount of money they made to experiment with a new concept: wireless accessories.
Committed to turning just about every dollar into growth, the guys each took home $167 a week for the first two years making sure every dollar they made was put right back in the business. The guys were originally set up for business in the basement of a friend’s house. Their entrepreneurial spirit translated almost overnight when they officially opened Global Cellular in March 2000.
In April 2000 the three set up shop at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta, Ga. Dressed in shirts and ties for their first big day of business, the trio sold $1243 worth of accessories. 30 days later, they opened their second location in Cumberland Mall in Cobb, Ga. Simultaneously, Jaime moved to Maryland to open four more locations in the Baltimore region, while Taki’s sister opened a store in Virginia Beach. After several years of building a business concept and taking a liking to the franchise model, Global Cellular emerged into Cellairis Franchise Inc., in 2005 with over 150 stores. As Jaime drove around the United States opening stores, Taki and Joseph kept busy in Atlanta finding vendors and top of the line products for all of the stores, while also building an infrastructure franchise system and distribution center.
It wasn’t long before more and more family and friends got involved and steadily expanded the network throughout the United States.
It definitely paid off as today Cellairis® operates close to 1,000 locations worldwide and employs over 3,500 people, system wide. They continue to apply passion and dedication to strengthen the company each day. Consistently striving to grow and innovate, Cellairis® is proud to be able to share the success of the company with friends, family, their loyal employees and their charitable partners.
