Zippy Shell Zooms into Aggressive Franchise Expansion Phase

Zippy Shell is reinforcing its reputation as the most prominent and disruptive force in the moving and storage industries, and we have a plan in place to grow our footprint even further.
A coast-to-coast expansion plan to double Zippy Shell’s domestic presence over the next three years is now in place, meaning that qualified franchise investors have the opportunity to invest now in Zippy Shell and to introduce new markets with access to our distinctive set of services.
Momentum behind Zippy Shell has shifted into high gear with four first quarter 2017 openings – Atlanta, Cleveland, Tampa, and Denver. Plus, projections call for up to 12 additional franchise units this year, with the second quarter forecasting to be equally as strong as the start of the year.
“We’ve cracked the code on a pair of antiquated sectors,” said Rick Del Sontro, president of Zippy Shell. “No other concept can do what Zippy Shell can to disrupt both the moving and storage industries. The business model has been designed to achieve maximum efficiencies on all sides of the business, which gives our franchisees and their customers the ultimate value proposition.”
Another indication of the climb Zippy Shell is making to the top of the moving and storage industries is the first quarter performance of its relocation services. Up 350 percent compared to the same timeframe last year, this portion of the company’s offerings serve as a significant sales opportunity for locations across the country to meet the corporate demand for more cost-effective and safer solutions.
