New Franchise Location Opened in Mobile, Alabama

January 04, 2016 // // Washington, D.C. - Zippy Shell Incorporated, the Washington, D.C. based self-storage company, is thrilled to announce the expansion of their franchise system with the addition of Zippy Shell Mobile, Alabama. This is a huge opportunity for Zippy Shell as they continue to flourish throughout the U.S.

John Pearson, owner of Zippy Shell of Mobile, is excited for the opportunity to work with such an influential moving and storage company. Pearson notes, "With my small business background and experience, I have full confidence that Zippy Shell of Mobile will be a huge success. With a high growth rate and new industries constantly flourishing throughout both Baldwin and Mobile Counties, it has become an ideal market for Zippy Shell to expand. Zippy Shell has the best customer service practice in the moving industry and I am thrilled to bring their innovative concept to Mobile."

"Mobile is a big market for Zippy Shell because it has such a strong foothold in the Southeast region of the U.S.," noted Rick Del Sontro, CEO of Zippy Shell. "That entire region of the country continues to have strong growth and with this growth comes an increased need for the storage and moving services that we provide. There is a constant fluctuation of people moving to and from South Alabama, the Gulf area and even the panhandle of Florida, which is perfect for a new Zippy Shell location."

"The opening of a new location is always an exciting thing for Zippy Shell as it strengthens our brand identity and also extends our nationwide coverage for long-distance moves," says Gareth Taylor, President of Zippy Shell. "The addition of this location goes a long way in strengthening our national footprint and we are looking forward to seeing the continued growth. Whether it is storage or moving, Zippy Shell provides a service to our customers that is unparalleled in these industries."
