Jewell & Steven Parker are ShelfGenie Franchise Owners for the Austin Area. The Parkers were delighted to discover glide-out shelving while remodeling the home they had lived in for 25 years. For two busy professionals with equally busy children, it made sense to organize the hard to reach kitchen storage areas. They also found that installing custom glide-outs boosted the resale value of their home.
The Parkers fell in love with the convenience of glide-out shelving and installed them in their new home, not only in the kitchen but also in the bathroom and laundry room. After enjoying successful careers in corporate America for more than 25 years, the Parkers began considering self-employment for their next chapter. While researching franchise opportunities, the Parkers were excited to find that the Austin ShelfGenie franchise was available. After researching the products, and talking with other owners and the national support team, they decided that the ShelfGenie culture and commitment to quality were a match! The Parkers assumed responsibility for the Austin Market in August 2018.
