For Immediate Release:
March 6th, 2014
Washington, DC - Zippy Shell USA, LLC announced today the sale of a second franchise location in the state of New Jersey. The new location will be serving the Union County area to the south of the already established Passaic County location. Zippy Shell of Union County is under the ownership of Phillip Kim and is set to launch in the spring of 2014.
Kim has over 20 years of experience as an internet and technology entrepreneur. During those years he served as the founder and owner of various companies in the industry. Kim first heard of the Zippy Shell® opportunity from his friend Josh Robbins, the owner of Zippy Shell of North Chicago. After enduring numerous difficulties moving and storing his own belongings during a long term home renovation, Kim saw the potential the Zippy Shell brand brought to the market.
“After all the hassle of moving around from temporary living spaces and paying over $500/month to store everything, the Zippy Shell solution was obviously the best option that I wish I had known about” said Kim. “New Jersey is the best market for expansion because as a part of the suburbs of New York City, it’s such a densely populated area with tons of opportunity.”
Rick Del Sontro, President of Zippy Shell USA explained, “Phillip represents a new type of owner that is attracted to the Zippy Shell franchise model. We are seeing very successful entrepreneurs who are looking for a new opportunity. Phillip is committed to building a very strong and successful business and understands the value of the solution we can provide to storage and moving customers through our model. We feel very strongly that he will replicate the success he has had previously with his Zippy Shell business”.
In the weeks before Zippy Shell of Union County is scheduled to launch Kim is working closely with the Zippy Shell USA team to create a business plan. Kim is looking forward to interacting with the extensive network of Zippy Shell franchise locations across the nation to help make Union County a successful part of the growing brand.
The fast moving and continued growth of the Zippy Shell® Brand recently earned the company the rank of #368 Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchises and #28 in Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchise list for 2014. The Zippy Shell offering was also announced as a recipient of the Franchise Business Review 2014 Franchisee Satisfaction Award.
