March 06, 2013 // Franchising.com // Zippy Shell USA, LLC. (“Zippy Shell?”) The great state of Texas will see further expansion of the Zippy Shell franchise network with the sale of Zippy Shell Self Storage and Moving in North Houston. The tremendous customer service and convenience of mobile storage continues to build a fan base of residents and businesses alike who love our “Store away, anytime, any day!” approach to meeting individualized storage needs. The population growth in the Houston market and the consumer trend toward more convenient storage and moving solutions presents a great business opportunity. Combining storage and moving services within the Zippy Shell business model really makes sense and offers of the best value solution for the residents and businesses in Houston. The new franchise is set to launch in July of this year.
“Our new franchisees spent a tremendous amount of time conducting the due diligence on franchise systems and ultimately determine that the Zippy Shell model offers the best value. On top of the excellent franchise support services, marketing and business development guidance offered by the Zippy Shell team, they really believe in the growth opportunity to place customers in storage at affordable monthly rates that are sustainable for the long term,” remarked Ben Phillips, Chief Marketing Officer.
Rick Del Sontro, President of Zippy Shell USA added, “Another benefit of our business model is to own your own storage facility at some point during the ownership of your business. Our model allows our owner operators to negotiate great terms on commercial space at the point of launching their business with the ultimate goal of owning a multi-million dollar facility that can create tremendous value for their business.”
The storage convenience offered by Zippy Shell is a door-to-door pick-up and delivery service that utilizes a street registered Zippy Shell trailer, with a custom storage container inside. The container stays inside the Zippy Shell unit and residents and businesses then pack their stuff into the container for short or long term storage. Zippy Shell franchisees will then pick up your storage container and take it to one of our secure, climate controlled facilities. Then when you’re ready to have your items returned, simply call us and we deliver wherever you want!”
Del Sontro is enthusiastic about the continued growth in the mobile self-storage industry segment. “Zippy Shell is really revolutionizing the way Americans take care of their storage needs. As a company we plan to significantly expand our current franchise network of 45 markets over the next 24 months through a combination of both company owned and non-company owned franchised locations. The Zippy Shell system is a smart and easy self-storage solution for residential and business customers.
