FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 6, 2014
Washington, D.C. – Zippy Shell USA, LLC is pleased to announce they have added another market within the state of Texas. Alamo Zippy Shell, located in San Antonio under the ownership of Charles Bamford, will provide service to the greater San Antonio area starting in October 2014.
Originally from South Africa, Bamford moved to the United States in 1990 to pursue a master’s degree in industrial engineering. After running a manufacturing facility in Florida, he moved to Texas in 1996 to run the operations of an aerospace composites company. Since 2009, Bamford has been working as a consultant helping clients implement best practices in product development and production operations. His previous experiences will be invaluable for the
Zippy Shell® Brand because he understands what is necessary to provide excellent customer service.
“The aerospace customers that I dealt with expect exceptional service, good communication and continuous improvement,” Bamford said. “These traits are equally applicable to the customers that Zippy Shell serves, so I intend to apply the experience gained serving corporate customers to serve our storage and moving customers.”
Bamford’s San Antonio operation continues Zippy Shell’s expansion throughout the state of Texas because consumers are attracted to the convenient service at a very cost effective price that Zippy Shell has to offer. ”San Antonio is such a strong and dynamic market for storage and moving,” CEO of Zippy Shell USA, LLC Rick Del Sontro said. “Charles has, from day one, been very focused on providing the customers with not only what they need but what they want in terms of customer service and affordable storage and moving solutions. We are hopeful that one day Zippy Shell will become synonymous with storage and moving made simple.”
Bamford was attracted to Zippy Shell because he believed he could provide the residents, businesses and members of the military in San Antonio with better storage and moving services. “San Antonio is one of the fastest growing cities in the US,” Bamford said. “Zippy Shell can serve the growing population with a convenient and cost effective storage and moving experience.”
Alamo Zippy Shell 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..
