A TeamLogic IT franchise has opened in Germantown, offering small-and-medium-sized businesses in the greater Milwaukee area an affordable solution for secure and flexible IT systems.

Kirk Gramoll co-owns the franchise at W175 N11081 Stonewood Drive, Suite 102 with his wife, Lisa. The company was founded in 2004 and started franchising in 2005.

The core mission of the company is to help businesses leverage technology to their advantage.

'I didn't need to reinvent the wheel,' Kirk said about choosing to open a franchise rather than his own business. The business is going smoother than expected, and opened May 9, he said.

The franchise had contracted work the day it opened, something Kirk said doesn't typically happen for other TeamLogic franchises.

Lisa said they decided to look into owning a franchise early this year and signed an agreement with TeamLogic in March.

The franchise in Germantown is already working with Discovery World in Milwaukee and has several other clients throughout Washington County.

Discovery World is familiar with a member of the team at the franchise, Mark Sullivan, who is the lead system engineer for the Germantown location.

“For us it was a no brainer,” said Paul Fladten, public relations manager of Discovery World, about using TeamLogic. Sullivan was the IT manager at Discovery World and Fladten said they wanted to continue working with him because of the work he had already done there.

The work that Sullivan has done through TeamLogic has created, “a stronger fit for our system,” Fladten said.

Lisa said the business is growing faster than they originally thought it would, thanks to large clients like Discovery World.

Lisa and Kirk plan to take on more employees in the coming months, with plans to post a job opening this week.

There is a second TeamLogic IT location in Green Bay.
