UNITS Moving and Portable Storage Celebrate Grand Opening in Kansas City
Locally Owned Portable Storage Business Prioritizing Community Service at Grand Opening
June 14, 2022 // Franchising.com // KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The Lenexa community in Kansas City is welcoming a new business and community partner to town with the opening of UNITS® of Kansas City.
On June 16, the moving and portable storage franchise will be holding its grand opening from noon to 1 p.m. at 9742 Pflumm Road, Lenexa, Kansas.
Lenexa Mayor Michael Boehm and the Lenexa Chamber of Commerce will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially welcome UNITS to town.
Community organization Habitat for Humanity will also be on hand to receive a $1,500 donation. More than 50 guests will also enjoy lunch from Bryce’s Food Truck.
Community Partnership During Grand Opening
Although UNITS is new to town, they have already gotten involved in making a difference in the community.
Earlier this month, UNITS of Kansas City partnered with Habitat for Humanity’s Rock the Block event.
UNITS donated two containers so 100+ volunteers could store their supplies for Rock the Block. During the event, volunteers fanned out into neighborhoods and completed much-needed repairs to homes of all shapes and sizes.
Community involvement is part of the foundation of UNITS Moving and Portable Storage, which is part of why Jim Becker is opening his second UNITS location in Kansas — he also owns UNITS of Central Iowa.
“Community service is what appealed to me in the first place,” says Jim. “I love the fact that UNITS lets us be a part of the community whether it’s by helping people in a transitional period in their life, or helping the community as a whole, like partnering with Habitat for Humanity.”
