Building Self-Storage with the Storage Authority Franchise Model Amidst Rising Interest Rate

By Garrett Byrd

The self-storage industry has long been hailed as a lucrative investment, and the current market conditions have created a unique opportunity for single owners or small partnerships to thrive using the proven Storage Authority franchise model. Even in the face of the Federal Reserve's recent approval of interest rate hikes to the highest levels in more than 22 years, the self-storage sector continues to shine as a resilient and profitable option for savvy entrepreneurs. Let's explore how the Storage Authority franchise can help you seize this moment and achieve success as a self-storage facility owner.
