From Australian beginnings
Founders Wilson and Suzanne McOrist began developing the Computer Troubleshooters concept in Australia in 1996, after seeing a growing frustration amongst business owners looking for affordable, quality computer support services. They called on their experiences with their successful previous franchise, Express Bookkeeping, which had grown to over 200 locations in Australia and New Zealand. In 1997, their first franchisee started in Australia.
Back in 1992, Chip Reaves started a company called CHIPTECH computer services in Atlanta, Georgia, which grew into one of the largest small business computer services businesses in the state. In 1999, Chip entered into a partnership with the McOrists by opening Computer Troubleshooters, USA.
Between 1999 and 2006, Chip Reaves and the McOrists grew Computer Troubleshooters to a thriving franchise, growing its presence internationally, with over 475 locations in more than 28 countries.
In January 2008, the McOrists sold their company to Merry Meeting, Inc. Merrymeeting, Inc. (MMI) was founded in 2001 by CEO John Davies and IVM NV, a Netherlands based private equity investment firm. MMI is focused on buying and developing franchise operations. Visit

Then in February 2008, Chip Reaves and Merry Meeting, Inc. merged the two companies to form Computer Troubleshooters Global, LLC.
This strong foundation is enhanced by a network of national directors and regional directors throughout our global network, delivering local service and support to our franchisees.
