March 13, 2014 // Franchising.com // Washington, DC - Zippy Shell USA, LLC announced today the sale of the company’s first franchise location in the state of Idaho. The new location under the ownership of Wade Larson will be located in Boise, the capitol city of Idaho. Zippy Shell of Treasure Valley is the 40th Zippy Shell franchise and is expected to launch later this year.
Wade Larson has spent the last 15 years working in Hi-tech manufacturing. Larson worked for various semiconductor companies manufacturing computer chips and working with engineering and management groups. Larson was introduced to Zippy Shell USA from his cousin Terry Larson, an owner of Zippy Shell of Southwest Florida. After following along with Terry and his partner as they opened their franchise, Wade became excited that this could be the opportunity he was looking for in Idaho.
"I like that the business model is efficient and has a great support system." Said Larson. "The cost effectiveness of the model creates a great base for building a successful business. I will fully use the strategies that Zippy Shell provides for building the business and working heavily with my friends and contacts I currently have in the residential Mortgage and Real estate businesses."
According to Rick Del Sontro, President of Zippy Shell USA, "This is our first franchise location in Idaho and we believe we have a great opportunity to fill a void in the storage industry. Consumers are constantly looking for ways to simplify things in their lives. Our model does this and allows consumers to easily maneuver through what have long been the stressful life events of moving and storage. We feel as though Wade will represent that brand well in Boise"..
In the coming weeks Larson will work closely with the Zippy Shell USA team to launch Zippy Shell of Treasure Valley. "I am full of excitement and confidence that Zippy was a great choice for starting my own business and helping me to attain the goals that I have to make it a success in the future" continued Larson.
