Storage Authority Franchise

"What do you want to do with your life?" a popular quote by the legendary rock band Twisted Sister and it sure is a valid question. "I want to own a self-storage franchise!" isn't included in the song, but it should be. The return on investment is outstanding for self-storage!!!

Let's compare self-storage to fast food and not even consider the huge profits in self-storage. Let's talk about lifestyle!!

High turnover of fast food employees vs One Manager and a part-timer in self -storage.

McDonald's for example may have 20-30 employees and several managers that can call off for various reasons. This leaves the staff short-handed and lessens the service to where problems will start occurring and lead to complaints. Self-Storage has two employees and if one cannot arrive for a day or must leave early, a rental/payment kiosk can fill in and still serve customers. The owner does not need to rush in to help. Enjoy your day!

Standard business hours

Hours of operation do matter if you want a lifestyle where you can plan your life and enjoy it. Self-storage often closes for the day around 5 or 6pm and you can enjoy your freedom. Ever hear about the ice cream machine being broken at McDonald's? Their are countless articles online dedicated to just this aspect. That's just one of the many things that can happen until 10pm or later at night. Self-storage service occurs during the day when all aspects can be handled during the normal course of business.


Self-storage should have a a clean and welcoming office for the customer. The restroom should also be clean and inviting and a good manager will ensure its a positive and delightful environment. One that will make your day better! Have you ever visited a McDonald's restroom when it is short staffed in the evening? Have you seen the YouTube videos of customers fighting with the employees?

Its a completely different world and the self-storage atmosphere wins by a landslide!!
