Zippy Shell USA, LLC Announces New Illinois Location!

May 05, 2014 // // Washington, D.C. – Zippy Shell USA, LLC is pleased to announce the sale of the company’s fourth franchise location in the state of Illinois. This new franchise, under the ownership of James Ronchetto, will service the entire Will County area. The other Zippy Shell franchisees in Illinois are located in Kane County, North Chicago and DuPage County.

Ronchetto, a 30-year executive in the transportation field, previously ran a trucking company. He started in the transportation industry as a truck driver for his father-in-law’s warehouse, moving various appliances and fertilizer from place to place.

While doing research on possible franchise opportunities, Ronchetto was introduced to the Zippy Shell® opportunity by a business broker. After researching other storage companies, he was drawn to the Zippy Shell brand because it is a cost effective storage system.

"I liked it better because it was a lower cost of capital equipment and a better delivery system," Ronchetto said. "Delivering licensed trailers with a pickup truck lets you get into areas that you wouldn’t be able to get into with different mobile storage companies."

"With the addition of Jim’s franchise location, we are rapidly building out the greater Chicago market", said Rick Del Sontro, President of Zippy Shell USA, LLC. "We are really happy to have Jim as part of the Zippy Shell team. He has a great understanding of the logistics part of our business and is committed to building a strong business. When Jim opens, we will have a significant presence in the market".

In the upcoming weeks, Ronchetto will be working closely with the staff from Zippy Shell USA to prepare for the launch of this new Zippy Shell franchise location. "Will County has a large population and it’s still somewhat undeveloped," Ronchetto said. "It’s growing and the demographics look interesting. It gives you an opportunity to provide storage in a market that continues to grow in population."

Zippy Shell of Will County is the 43rd overall franchise and the eighth franchise to be sold in 2014. With the continued growth of the Zippy Shell® Brand, it’s no wonder why the company recently earned the No. 368 rank in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 franchises and was ranked No. 28 on Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchise list for 2014. Franchise Business Review has also announced Zippy Shell as a recipient of the 2014 Franchise Satisfaction Award, continuing the long list of accolades Zippy Shell has earned over the years.
