December 13, 2016 // Franchising.com // Simi Valley, CA - Go Mini’s, the fastest-growing portable storage and moving company in North America, today announced it is expanding its franchise business into North Carolina. With 78 franchise locations throughout the United States managing thousands of portable storage units, Go Mini’s has created a proven business model for franchisees to succeed.
“Housing starts are up more than 31 percent over last year and incomes continue to rise in North Carolina creating the ideal environment for franchisees and entrepreneurs to invest in and grow their own Go Mini’s franchise,” according to Michael Lohman, chief executive officer of Go Mini’s. “We’ve built a repeatable business model based on superior products, exemplary services and an honest, above-board process that ensures our franchise owners are the ultimate fit for our company. And, for these reasons, we’ve never had a franchise fail.”
Most Americans move more than 12 times in their lives either voluntarily or due to emergencies such as fire, floods and storms. This trend has exponentially increased the need for temporary portable storage and created a $9 billion industry.
For entrepreneurs choosing to franchise and enter the market for the first time or for existing business owners looking for ways to diversify and expand their current operations, Go Mini’s offers an operational model that is simple yet effective. It doesn’t require a large staff, warehouse or retail front, instead it utilizes superior construction and climate-controlled containers, as well as advanced internet marketing and operation systems.
According to John Sowards, a multi-business owner in Utah and now a franchise owner, “The Go Mini’s business model is so simple that you can literally manage it from your phone, even while driving. As an owner of more than one business, this has been essential to the success of my Go Mini’s franchise.”
According to Rick Paulk, a former moving company owner in New Orleans who started with one Go Mini’s container and is now the largest franchise owner with 800 containers in Louisiana and Texas, “Being a mover is how I knew I wanted a piece of the DIY market and saw that the majority of people do it themselves versus hiring a company for full service. I wanted a piece of that pie and Go Mini’s provided the entrance into that market. They know exactly how and where to generate new business and their knowledge of today’s marketing tools including the internet and social media has been instrumental to my success. Go Mini’s has certainly kept our phones ringing!”
Go Mini’s currently offers franchise opportunities in 13 states including Alabama, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington and now North Carolina. For more information, visit www.gominisfranchise.com.
