FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JUNE 16, 2014
Washington, DC – Zippy Shell USA, LLC is pleased to announce the sale of the company’s first location in Louisiana. Zippy Shell of Lafayette, under the ownership of Andrew Guillory, will service the greater Lafayette area.
Guillory, born and raised in Lafayette, graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and has been working in the oil and gas industry since 2005. During the next few weeks, Guillory will be working closely with the Zippy Shell staff in preparation for this new franchise location.
One major benefit of Guillory’s previous experiences is that he already is familiar with the Louisiana market and that knowledge will be an asset to developing the
Zippy Shell® Brand. “I am familiar with Lafayette and the surrounding areas and have local connections with realtors that I think will really help me get off to a great start,” Guillory said.
“From the first day we began speaking with Andy about the business opportunity, we knew he would be a great person to open the Louisiana market for us,” President of Zippy Shell USA Rick Del Sontro said. “He really understands the advantages we can offer to customers looking for storage and moving services, as well as the need for taking stressful events and making them much more manageable.”
Zippy Shell of Lafayette is the 45th overall franchise and the 10th franchise to be sold in 2014. With the continued growth of the
Zippy Shell® Brand, the company recently earned the No. 368 rank in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 franchises and was ranked No. 28 on Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchise list for 2014. Franchise Business Review has also announced Zippy Shell as a recipient of the 2014 Franchise Satisfaction Award, continuing the long list of accolades Zippy Shell has earned over the years.
