Zippy Shell Acquires New Franchise Location in Minneapolis

July 29, 2015 // Franchising.com // Washington, D.C. - Zippy Shell is excited to announce the opening of a new franchise location in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Minneapolis is the 14th largest city in the U.S. and is an integral link to the global economy, often referred to as the Global City.

The franchise will be owned by Jon Skyberg, an IT veteran, who has dedicated nearly 30 years of his career to IT operations for companies such as Hewlett-Packard (HP). In his role, Jon managed over 300 individuals in his department along with the oversight of customer contracts. His extensive customer service experience will serve as a valuable asset in his strategic efforts towards building a local brand presence in the Minneapolis area.

"Minneapolis is a thriving city in the Midwest and is an ideal location for Zippy Shell to open its doors," says Rick Del Sontro, CEO of Zippy Shell. "Opening a location in a new state is always a big deal for us as it strengthens our brand identity and also extends our nationwide coverage for long-distance moves."

The franchise location will be the first Zippy Shell location in Minnesota and will be the 57th location for the company.

"I'm thrilled to bring the Zippy Shell storage and moving concept to the Minneapolis area. It's a market where there's a constant fluctuation of people moving to and from the area," says Jon Skyberg. "What sets Zippy Shell apart from its competitors is the company's customer-focused business model. Zippy Shell has the best customer service practice that I have seen in the moving industry."

Zippy Shell currently operates 56 corporate and franchise-owned locations across the nation. Zippy Shell is the fastest growing company in both the moving and storage industries today.
