FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sept. 3, 2014
Washington, D.C. – Zippy Shell USA, LLC is thrilled to announce they have expanded their coverage area to another state with the sale of a new franchise location in Greenville, South Carolina. Zippy Shell of Greenville, under the ownership of Bart and Robin Duncan, will be open for business in November 2014 and service the entire Greenville area.
Both originally from Greenville, Bart and his wife, Robin, have spent most of their careers working in the aerospace industry and in telecommunications, respectively. Bart graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern Wesleyan University with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration and recently worked as a program manager for Lockheed Martin. The Duncan’s previous experiences will be invaluable resources for the Zippy Shell® Brand as it expands into a new territory because they understand the benefits of providing excellent customer service.
“Our interests are closely aligned with the corporate vision of providing superior customer service within this market,” Bart Duncan said. “In 10 years, we want the first name to come to peoples’ mind when they are considering utilizing storage and moving solutions to be Zippy Shell, instead of that other company.”
Zippy Shell’s expansion into South Carolina isn’t just a monumental feat because it’s a brand new market; it’s a monumental feat because the expansion puts the company on track for over 20 new franchises sold in 2014. “We are really excited about our continued expansion,” said CEO of Zippy Shell USA, LLC Rick Del Sontro. “Going into growing areas like Greenville allows us to really expand our brand and build a nationwide network of locations that are critical to our long term success. We are excited for the Duncan’s and are very much looking forward to their opening in November.”
The main features the Duncan’s believe Zippy Shell can bring to the Greenville community are the cost-effective and convenient storage and moving solutions and the ability to reach customers who live outside of the area.
Zippy Shell of Greenville is the 48th overall franchise and the 13th 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.
