Storage Authority Franchise Award Steps

“Franchising means being in business for yourself but not by yourself”

The goal of the discovery process is for you to understand Storage Authority Systems, its high end “Ritz” Sales & Marketing, over the top, remarkable hometown customer service and operation philosophies so we can determine if we are a good fit for each other.

While we believe self-storage is the best business for many people, our role is not to convince you self-storage is for you. If you have not done enough research to know if self- storage is for you let us know and we can guide you on how to continue your research.

Basically, we do three main things for you:

1) We help make self-storage easier for you and reduce your risk.

   2) We help you save time and money.
