Another New Business in Wells County
The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassadors held a Ribbon Cutting for Boost Mobile by Bravo Wireless on Friday, January 11, 2019 at their new location 917 N. Main Street in Bluffton. Bravo Wireless officially opened their doors on December 5, 2018. Chris Spencer, Store Manager; Jason Kelley; Gabby Valdez, Sales Advocate; Josh Ames, General Manager; and Zachary Bushong, District Manager were all present from Bravo Wireless to celebrate the occasion.
Eight years ago, owners Josh Bravo and Shane Kleine, opened their first cellular store in Indiana, which has now grown to 12 total stores, with Wells County being the newest. Kleine worked in cellular stores for several years and gained experience and knowledge in the industry. Kleine felt that Boost Mobile was going to the be “the next best thing”; therefore, Bravo and Kleine decided to jump in and take advantage of the growth.
Josh Ames, General Manager, explained “being a part of the community is extremely important for our staff and the company. Wells County is a great community, and we wanted to bring this service here. Being involved by sponsoring events and giving back in the community is important to all of us.”
When asked how their service differs from other carriers, the comments from the staff were very passionate. “Boost Mobile is about value,” said Ames. “Customers get the most value with their money and the combination of service and price is like no other company can offer.”
“We don’t believe in customer service, we believe in guest service because it feels more welcoming and because we’re helping our friends and neighbors and they are not “just” customers to us,” added Chris Spencer, Store Manager.
“Boost Mobile is a mom and pop shop feel with the corporate appeal,” said Zachary Bushong, District Manager. “We offer a wide variety of plans and budget with quality service for all of our customers cell phone needs.”
Ames explained that Boost Mobile plans include a mobile hot spot, with some offering up to 50 gigabits (depending on plan) including single line to multi line plans. “Hot spot runs off 4G LTE and is comparable with high speed internet and there are no overage fees with Boost Mobile. Customers pay for the service upfront with no hidden fees and it can be refilled as needed. Hot Spots can be used to supplement home service for TV, routers, and comes in handy when working out of the office or on vacation.”
“We can even still accommodate those individuals that still need a flip phone or ones that desire the more current high-end devices with financing options available,” said Spencer. “We have such a variety of plans and promotions and something for everyone and here to deliver with top notch quality and service. Even if you need help trouble-shooting your device, or even how to use your phone, come in and see us…we can help.”
