Zippy Shell’s Fifth Texas Franchise Location is Open for Business!

October 08, 2014 // // Washington, D.C. – Zippy Shell USA, LLC is proud to announce the grand opening of the company’s newest franchise location in Houston, Texas. Zippy Shell of Houston will be the fifth Zippy Shell franchise location in Texas and will pair with the other locations to provide unprecedented service to the entire Houston area. The newest location is under the ownership of Alex Hodges, a 25-year business professional with various experiences working for large and mid-sized corporations.

"Zippy Shell has several innovative business differentiators that will enable me to provide secure, convenient and affordable storage and moving services to customers that can beat any competitor in the Houston market," said Hodges. "Houston continues to be a rapidly growing market with a tremendous amount of household movement and migration. Zippy Shell with our affordable, convenient and secure storage system is in a key position to take advantage of this opportunity."

To celebrate Zippy Shell of Houston’s grand opening, Hodges is offering the first month’s storage for just $1, as well as other special saving bonuses. The entire Houston Metro Area can now have access to convenient, affordable storage and moving services.

"We are really excited about the brand and reputation we are building in the Houston market," said Rick Del Sontro, CEO of Zippy Shell USA. "Alex and his team will no doubt expand upon this and make the Zippy Shell name more synonymous with simplified storage and moving services in Houston. Consumers are finally able to get the convenience and benefits that portable storage and moving provide, at a price that makes sense to them".

Zippy Shell of Houston was the 45th overall franchise and the tenth franchise to be sold in 2014. There have now been 48 total franchises sold spanning more than 86 markets across the United States.

"I am excited to have our grand opening as the third location in the Houston area," continued Hodges. "I have an opportunity to continue to expand on the exceptional business reputation already created in the Houston area that the other two business owners have already established. What is clear, is that the residents and business owners in the Houston market are finding that our services make sense to them".

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.
