Zippy Shell USA, LLC. Adds Third Illinois Franchise Location

February 05, 2014 // // Washington, DC - Zippy Shells USA, LLC announced today the sale of a new franchise location in DuPage County, Illinois. This will be the 3rd franchise in the state of Illinois along with locations in Fox Valley and North Chicago. Zippy Shell of DuPage County is under the ownership of Andrew Richardson and is expected to launch in the spring of 2014.

Richardson worked in Engineering Management for a global consulting firm focusing on the development and execution of capital projects for clients such as ExxonMobil, BP, and Rio Tinto. Richardson decided to get involved in the storage industry after being a storage customer himself. When he found the Zippy Shell® opportunity, he instantly was drawn to the company’s growth, strong support staff, and innovative business model.

"It was great timing to come across the Zippy Shell brand as the company continues its rapid expansion across the nation" said Richardson. "The Zippy Shell Unit and container concept offers unmatched flexibility to the customer as well as the independent owner. I have a motivated and strong support staff where our partnership will ultimately translate into a top tier customer experience."

Zippy Shell USA President Rick Del Sontro stated: "We know that the greater Chicago area is one of the strongest in the country for storage and moving services. We are now building a strong base of franchise owners in the area to help us build the brand and provide a superior service. Andrew is so enthusiastic about the business and we are convinced that he will provide customers storage and moving solutions that simplify their lives."

DuPage County is expected to open for business as the 38th franchised and company owned location in the nation during the spring of 2014. "I am very enthusiastic to be part of the Zippy Shell community" continued Richardson. "The opportunity that the Zippy Shell brand has created is an attractive alternative to offering convenient and affordable storage and moving solutions to the Chicago metropolitan market. Being the 3rd operation in our region, I look forward to continuing the momentum on establishing the Zippy Shell brand as the "go-to" solution in our market.""

The fast moving and continued growth of the Zippy Shell® brand recently earned the company the rank of #368 Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchises for 2014. The Zippy Shell offering was also announced as a recipient of the Franchise Business Review 2014 Franchisee Satisfaction Award.
