Pursuing the American Dream of owning his own business finally came to fruition for Mike Machado this month. Mike partnered with Rod Pitzer to open their own Rent-to-Own store. The two recently celebrated their grand opening of a Premier Rental-Purchase store.
Mike is a RTO veteran of more than 16 years in the industry. His desire to open his own Premier Rental Purchase store has been his passion for many years. Throughout much of his RTO career Mike stayed in constant communication with Trooper Earle, President & CEO of The Premier Companies. The discussions concluded with Mike deciding on the franchise ownership opportunity with Premier Rental-Purchase, one of four Premier Companies brands. Mike knew that Premier was going to be his future business. After many years in the industry working for someone else, the opportunity came to team up with friend and fellow RTO veteran Rod Pitzer to open their store.
Mike and Rod held their Grand Opening for their Premier Rental-Purchase store in Mesquite, Texas last week. “I'm excited about opening our store and working for myself rather than someone else,” said Mike. “Trooper and The Premier Companies have welcomed us with open arms. The support that we have received from the Premier Team has been awesome and is readily available to us when we need it. It takes a lot of pressure off us knowing that Premier is there to support us,” said Mike.
The Grand Opening was a huge success for the Mesquite owners. The festivities included special giveaway prizes, a local DJ, and an early visit from the Easter Bunny. The dynamic RTO team is not only experts in the industry but they know how to barbeque great tasting hot dogs and hamburgers which they served during their Grand Opening.
“I'm so glad to welcome Mike and Rod into the Premier Family,” said Trooper. “They are true veterans of the RTO industry and I'm very pleased to have them as our partners.”
