On Aug. 29, Rick Salinas began leveraging his decades of experience in the software development industry by bringing Experimac, the new concept that provides pre-owned computers and devices; repair and upgrade services for laptops, phones and tablets; trade-ins of existing devices; and sales of accessories, to Arvada. Located at 8410 Wadsworth Blvd., Salinas and his son Zach bring the newest concept from industry veteran United Franchise Group to serve customers throughout Greater Denver area by providing popular Apple® devices at prices far below retail prices.

After 32 years in Corporate America in the software development industry, Salinas decided it was time for a change and time to strike out on his own in business with his son. With a strong technical background and a pension for Apple® products, he was drawn to Experimac.

“I will be able to leverage my technological background with Experimac,” Salinas said. “We are able to help customers understand their Apple products and help them work through whatever issues they may have. From broken screens to helping them select the right product to suit their needs, Experimac will be there to help.”

The newest addition to the United Franchise Group, a family of brands that includes industry standouts such as Signarama, EmbroidMe and SuperGreen Solutions, Experimac is backed by a reputation of business success. This, said Salinas, gave him confidence in the concept as a viable career choice.

“Experimac is a business based in innovation and quality of Apple® products,” said Salinas. “I see Apple® continuing to stay ahead of the curve with new technology and products. I believe this will help the market for our business model stay relevant for years to come.”

Salinas’ plan for his Experimac location is to create a family business legacy. He will run the store with his son Zach and the support of his wife Connie. Their plan is to make the Arvada location as successful as possible and then open two additional locations.
