ShelfGenie Franchise Is Midway Through an Exciting Year
The premier shelving solutions franchise is off to a banner year with exciting new developments and plans for a rapid nationwide expansion
It’s summertime, and things are heating up for ShelfGenie. The premier shelving solutions franchise is midway through an exciting year of developments that include a nationwide expansion, the launching of a franchise development website that explains the opportunity in great detail, and a beautiful, new consumer-facing website, which thoroughly explains the brand’s product offering and the way our products can transform clients’ spaces to provide ease of access and enjoyment.
The year began with ShelfGenie being named as a best-bet investment franchise opportunity by two of the industry’s most prestigious media outlets: Franchise Business Review and Entrepreneur. The inclusion of ShelfGenie to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list for 2016 took on extra significance, as it marked ShelfGenie’s sixth consecutive appearance — reflecting not only our rapid growth and superior product offering, but also that ShelfGenie’s business model has a proven track record of success over the long-term.
“We’re extremely honored to be named a Top Franchise Opportunity by both Franchise Business Review and Entrepreneur for 2016,” says Allan Young, Chief Executive Officer with ShelfGenie. “We’ve developed a proven business model based on supporting our franchise owners in their day-to-day management of their ShelfGenie franchise businesses, and it’s very validating that our business model ranked as a best-bet investment by two of the most prestigious media outlets in the franchise industry. Our franchisees are extremely passionate about our ability to transform spaces so that our clients can have greater ease of access and improved functionality in the places they love. It is constantly gratifying to us as a franchisor that we can provide a business model that allows for scalability and success.”
New customer-facing website allows franchise owners to beautifully display how ShelfGenie’s products can change lives
As part of the $235 billion home remodeling industry, ShelfGenie solutions are high-quality, American-made shelves that appeal to homeowners — from millennials to baby boomers — who want to make their living areas more functional and easier to use. To better illustrate the brand’s ability to change the lives of its growing base of clients, as well as provide ShelfGenie’s franchise owners with a web presence that matches the quality and beauty of our customized shelving solutions, ShelfGenie launched shelfgenie.com.
A Google search for “how to age in place” brings up countless articles that exemplify how large the demand is for ShelfGenie franchises. The very first recommendation in an article titled “Making the Kitchen Safe for Seniors,” published by Home Care, is “preventing falls that occur simply because things are not easily reachable.”
Not only can ShelfGenie make things reachable for seniors again, but the brand’s solutions also appeal to baby boomers who need their items made accessible to them. The University of Vermont reports that the use of walking aids (canes, wheelchairs and scooters) “has increased by 50 percent in the past decade, according to a new study, and should continue to increase as the number of seniors is expected to double by 2050.” The millions of baby boomers who are preparing to live out their lives in their existing homes are actively seeking solutions that retain their value, as well as make their homes safer and more enjoyable to use as they age.
“ShelfGenie takes away the frustration and pain that come from living in a home that’s inefficient and poorly designed and transforms that home into a functional space that is made for enjoyment and love,” says Gillian Harper, Chief Operating Officer with ShelfGenie. “That is what we focus on, and we are transforming the lives of our clients every day.”
ShelfGenie launches franchise recruitment website, ramps up for rapid nationwide expansion
ShelfGenie is a customized, Glide-Out shelving and organization solution franchise that has remodeled millions of cabinets in kitchens, pantries, bathrooms and garages since it began transforming spaces in 2007. The top-rated franchise has grown to 48 franchisees who serve 160 territories in the U.S. and Canada. The brand is actively seeking savvy entrepreneurs who are passionate about the brand’s ability to transform spaces for ease of access and improved functionality, as ShelfGenie continues to rapidly expand at home and abroad.
As of now, ShelfGenie has 174 prime locations available from Manhattan to Los Angeles and from Corpus Christi, Texas, all the way up to North Dakota! The ShelfGenie premier home improvement franchise offers a low-cost investment opportunity with a potential for high returns. For an initial investment starting at $70,100, franchisees get the backing and knowledge of a proven franchise system and the ability to change the lives of people in communities across the nation.
To fully explain the scope of the ShelfGenie franchise opportunity, the brand launched a franchise recruitment website, shelfgeniefranchise.com in Spring 2016. The site features franchisee interviews, as well as information about ShelfGenie’s stellar training and franchise support, low-cost investment opportunity and details about what has led to the meteoric rise of the customized Glide-Out shelving and storage solution franchise.
“Now is a great time to invest in a ShelfGenie franchise,” Allan says. “What franchisees get now is to be a part of a company that has proven and refined our business model over eight years. We have shortened the learning curve so that owners can get off to a faster start, while the market has only increased the demand for our services.”
