August 22, 2013 // // Washington, D.C. – Zippy Shell USA, LLC announces the continuation of its rapid franchise growth with the sale a new location in Downtown Chicago. The new franchise marks the fourth franchise sale for Zippy Shell USA this month. Zippy Shell® North Chicago is the second Illinois location and will operate under the ownership of Josh and Ramie Robbins. The business is slated to open October of this year .

Josh has spent most of his career as an entrepreneur in the technology sector. Mostly recently, Josh built and sold a successful Voice over IP phone business and has been searching for a new investment. Ramie has years of experience working as a profitable real estate agent.. The Robbins researched many investment opportunities but were drawn to mobile storage for its innovative concept and ease of usability.

Josh was quoted in a recent interview saying, “We are very excited to bring the Zippy Shell brand to Chicago and work closely with the successful team behind the franchise operations. We feel our unique advantage over the existing fixed and mobile storage options will deliver a cost-effective, simple, door-to-door storage solution to Chicago’s residents. The Zippy Shell System consists of a unique delivery system that ensures we will be capable of legally parking our Zippy Shell units anywhere in Chicago for our customers to get in and out of storage, whether they are de-cluttering, listing a house for sale, remodeling, moving or have other storage needs."

The Zippy Shellsm opportunity has revolutionized the portable self-storage marketing by utilizing a light-weight, mobile shell and container system, perfect for both residential and business customers. The overall growth of the system in 2013 has been amazing. The Zippy Shellsm system has grown over 80% in the first 8 months of 2013 and is expected to reach 100% growth by the end of this year.

Zippy Shell USA President, Rick Del Sontro stated, “Josh and Ramie are a great couple and smart investors. Their combined experience in the tech and real estate industries make them the perfect owners of a Zippy Shell franchise operation. We are extremely excited to be launching Zippy Shell in downtown Chicago. The Chicago market is really devoid of a convenient mobile storage service. Today’s options for the consumer are neither convenient nor affordable. Josh, Ramie and their team will finally deliver a great solution to the residents and businesses in the downtown area”.
