After hearing hundreds and hundreds of people say they were going to build a self storage but never did and after visiting just as many self storage that were poorly designed, maintained and operated Marc Goodin started his journey helping others build and operate responsible self storage facilities.
Marc has been sharing his self storage knowledge with new comers and veterans alike for over 20 years. Marc has helped many people, through his self storage books and his consulting practice, how to prosper by surprising and delighting their customers and providing unexpected over the top customer service.
Every time Marc opened a new facility or helped someone else open one or even talked about self storage he continued to hear over and over again I was going to build a self storage but. But in the end there were only so many hours in a day to help.
"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.
Why Our Franchise?
We will revolutionize the self storage industry with the extraordinary power of Franchising. 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!
