May 13, 2015. Washington, D.C. - Zippy Shell is proud to announce the grand opening of the company's newest franchise location in Westchester County, New York. Located just north of New York City, Westchester County is a popular and affluent suburban area known for its prime location.
"I am excited to introduce such a convenient and affordable solution for the Westchester area, said John Posimato. "Zippy Shell's customer-centric approach provides the localized feel that this community highly values. I look forward to building a successful business with the Zippy Shell brand."
John Posimato has owned and operated a flooring business for over 20 years, bringing both entrepreneurial skills and operational experience to build the brand for Zippy Shell of Westchester. As a longtime resident of Westchester County, Posimato has a strong understanding of the market and has pre-established contacts throughout the area.
"Westchester is an exciting territory for Zippy Shell as we continue to expand our nationwide coverage. We're thrilled to partner with John, as his extensive background will help him build the Zippy Shell brand," said Rick Del Sontro, CEO of Zippy Shell.
The new Westchester County location is the third Zippy Shell franchise in the state of New York. Westchester County joins pre-established locations in Manhattan and Long Island to offer an expanded service area to the Southern half of New York State.
"I feel lucky to start a Zippy Shell with nearby support from the other two locations in New York," said Posimato. "Not only will my efforts affect my local community, but also will help build the brand across the entire state of New York."
Apart from John, his daughter Danielle will also be a crucial member of the Westchester County team as she will be in charge of running the day to day operations.
"We have built a strong team here in Westchester and are ready to work together and provide world-class customer service to our customers," said Danielle Posimato. "We are excited to put in the hard work and build a strong reputation for Zippy Shell in Westchester."
