Quik Internet is a worldwide network of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with more staffed offices than any other provider in the world. Over 170 Quik Internet offices are open in 19 countries offering specialized customer service. Quik Internet representatives offer to visit customers’ homes or offices to assist in the installation and ensure they become connected.

Through its unique business model of placing ISPs within the cities it serves, Quik Internet offers Internet access, e-commerce solutions, Web site design and hosting, Internet classes and reseller programs.

An additional benefit of Quik's local representation is the offer of free Internet training classes. Quik Internet offices provide these classes for customers and non-customers alike to share information about the Internet. The basics of the Internet are introduced for those new to the online world and a user-group forum is provided for Internet gurus.

Quik powers its network with IBM RS/6000* robust, scaleable servers to provide a high level of power and reliability to its service. The RS/6000 holds a world record for 430,000 hits per minute as the official Web server of the 1999 Champion Wimbledon games.

Quik International, parent company to Quik Internet, gives entrepreneurs the opportunity to capitalize on the Internet—the biggest revolution in 250 years—by franchising ISPs in local communities around the world under the name Quik Internet.

Founded in 1996, Quik International grew from 27 franchises at year-end 1997 to 95 at the close of 1998 and was listed among Entrepreneur magazine's 1999 Franchise 500. Quik established over 60 additional franchises in 1999 and closed out the year with 160 total franchises. This growth catapulted the company's ranking on Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500, rising 142 positions in the 2000 listing. For franchise information click here.

During 1998, Quik International launched its Master Franchise program granting territories in Canada and countries abroad to establish Quik Internet offices within that country. Master licensees have been placed in Australia, Canada, Ecuador, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, the U.K., and Venezuela.
