Why Franchising? Why Storage Authority?

"Self-Storage" a large and growing market place that has attracted major investments from Wall Street to private equity, yet independent operators still owns the majority of locations nationally. Those operators and ones considering developing new facilities are becoming increasingly aware of the complexity of the market, with the dominance of big box REITS entering their markets and capturing market share. This is the reason we developed "Storage Authority", the first and only self-storage franchise system in the nation.  The Company has developed a platform designed to enable the individual/ independent self-storage owner to leverage the influence, branding, purchasing power and backing of a national corporation while still maintaining independence.

"Franchising means being in business for yourself but not by yourself."

The founders of "Storage Authority" are experts in both the self-storage industry and corporate franchising and know firsthand the challenges that companies and individual like you face every day in this evolving market. There is a gap that exists in the management and technology between the independent operators and the major public corporations "REITs," which explains why the latter are gaining market share.  Under the "Storage Authority" banner, the existing small operators and new investors will benefit from the brand's proprietary Systems to provide the support and knowledge they are missing.  This is an industry-first franchise system for self-storage owners that will provide state-of-the-art proprietary systems that will allow the independent operators not only to compete but also win over their larger competitors, with High Performance:

In the United States alone, 41 cents of every retail dollar is spent at a franchise operation.  This is quite astounding when you consider that fewer than 5 percent of small businesses are franchised!  Studies claim that franchised businesses enjoy a success rate up to three times greater than that of independent businesses.  Why not be a part of the American Dream and be a part of history in the making!
