After being in the corporate world for close to twenty years, my wife and I began looking for franchise opportunities that would allow us the possibility of eventually exiting corporate America. Our criteria for selecting a franchise model was focused on businesses that were scalable, required few employees, had strong corporate support , and were somewhat disruptive in their industry. Units checked all those boxes for us. After 7 months of being operational, we couldn’t be happier with the progress we are making. We are elated with the continuous support we receive from corporate and the immense potential of this business is very evident. We now have a clear roadmap to finally exiting the corporate world after all.
My wife and I originally chose UNITS for four main reasons. We wanted… 1) A fairly straight forward business without a lot of complication that we could turn over to a General Manager at some point when we were ready to retire. 2) A business that could provide a nice income stream to supplement our retirement savings, 3) A business model that was part of a growth industry, & 4) We wanted a business that had some significant barriers to entry. UNITS met all the criteria and we’re reaping the rewards of that decision.
I found myself in a position of losing a high-paying corporate job and all the stability that came with it, but used the opportunity to do what I’ve always wanted to do-and that is to own my own business. I wanted something that had high potential with a requirement of limited employees, a simple business model and with easy scalability. In the end, I chose UNITS because it not only met all of these requirements, but after doing my due-diligence, meeting with all the UNITS personnel and talking to other franchise owners I saw a very simple business model and it was the right fit for me. As I write this, I am 100% sold out of containers and I cannot wait until my next shipment gets here.
I have found the support at UFG to be top notch. I looked at several franchises and after meeting Michael and Holly McAlhany and the rest of the UNITS team…I was in! Like any franchise, a new franchisee needs support and the team at UNITS has been with me every step of the way. I look forward to a long successful relationship and I’m so glad that I part of the UNITS Team!
“I would absolutely recommend UNITS Moving and Portable Storage to friends for franchising since it’s such a great product. Their corporate team is very easy to deal with, and they walk you through each process from the very beginning to the end.”
After working 23 years with the same company, and 26 years overall, it was time for me to move on from my current situation. I reviewed several options but ultimately hired a coach for traditional job hunting but the thought of doing the same type of work for the next 20 years was not particular inspiring. So, I also reached out to a franchise coach and narrowed my search to three concepts, ultimately choosing UNITS. The support I’ve received from UFG has been consistent and unwavering. I also receive two scheduled weekly conference calls, that help drive my business.
