Discovery process Interview with owner

By Garrett Byrd

We ask our new owners now that they have completed the discovery process and are looking for land, could they please share a little bit about their experience of getting through the discovery and why they choose to become a Storage Authority Franchise owner?

The interview below is conducted between the Storage Authority team and Ryan and Jennifer From New Jersey our newest Storage Authority Franchise owners.


Question 1:   Are you excited to get started?   And how many hours a week are you planning on spending looking for land to make your self-storage goals come true?

Answer:  Absolutely! We will be spending 5-10 hours per week on looking for land.

Question: 2  What was the major reason you chose self-storage and teamed up with Storage Authority?

Answer:  We are owners of another franchise and looked for an industry to provide diversification to our other investments, provide recurring revenue and is relatively light from a staffing perspective. Storage Authority provides the knowledge and experience that would take years to obtain otherwise.

Question: 3  How did your impression of self-storage and franchising change from the beginning to the end of the Storage Authority Discovery Process?

Answer:  The more we talked to Marc and team, it provided us with the confidence that with hard work, our investment will be extremely profitable over time.

Question: 4  Do you have any recommendations to improve the Storage Authority discovery process?

Answer:  I feel that all prospective franchisees should take advantage to talk to those that are existing. While we asked and Storage Authority promptly set us up with multiple people, this should be standard prior to signing a franchise agreement.

Question: 5 Most Franchisee owners get started because self-storage can be the major catalyst for Wealth (Time & Money). Can you share one or two reasons or goals why you are willing to commit your time for a second income?

Answer:  Self Storage diversifies our income streams and is resistant to a negative macroeconomic environment
