Cellular Sales

Controller

 

What started in a small strip center in Knoxville, Tennessee has now grown into Verizon’s premier retail partner. Cellular Sales started with a mission to become a company that empowers its employees and treats customers as the number one priority. That vision expanded quickly with the opening of 100 stores in seven states in the first decade. But that was only the beginning. The next decade of growth led to 400 more stores in 22 states. Today, Cellular Sales has over 780+ stores in 40 states with over 7,200 team members nationwide. Each new year has seen tremendous growth, but the family-like atmosphere and core values remain the same. The Cellular Sales team is charged with helping our customers discover amazing ways to connect to the experiences that shape their lives.
