April 02, 2015 // Franchising.com // Washington, D.C. - Zippy Shell is proud to announce the grand opening of a new franchise located in Columbus, Ohio. Columbus is home to Ohio State University, one of the largest universities in the country. Columbus has also been recognized by notable publications such as Forbes, as one of the best cities to live in.
"I couldn't be more thrilled to provide Zippy Shell's unique service to the Columbus area," said David Rothman, CEO and Owner of Zippy Shell Columbus. "Columbus is a thriving city that is attracting new residents each year. Zippy Shell will be the most sought-out resource for the community's moving and storage needs," explained Rothman.
Before Rothman had signed with Zippy Shell, he had been searching for an opportunity that would offer the Columbus community a service that wasn't already accessible. Once he discovered the Zippy Shell system, he was impressed with the customer-centric model and believed that it would provide the ideal business opportunity.
"Columbus is an exciting territory for Zippy Shell because it's not only the third largest city in the mid-western region of the U.S., but also houses one of the largest universities in the country. This will give us the opportunity to expand upon our student storage by the box offering, known as ZippyU," said Rick Del Sontro, CEO of Zippy Shell.
"David has hit the ground running since he signed the contract, said Gareth Taylor, Founder, and President of Zippy Shell. "David's enthusiasm and attention to detail are going to pay off, and we're excited to see what he will bring to the table for Zippy Shell moving forward."
Zippy Shell plans to continually expand its interstate moving network, as Zippy Shell currently provides interstate moves to over 75 destinations across the country.
