Big Box Offers Franchising Opportunities
If the idea of being self-employed but having the security of an already established business appeals to you, a franchise may offer a lucrative and rewarding opportunity
If you would like to own an independent business that is part of a larger organization, Big Box Storage Franchising offers multi-market growth opportunities that might fit into your vision.
Based in San Diego CA, Big Box Inc. is a simple and user-friendly alternative to a traditional storage, says company founder Brian Hurley. “This concept allows customers to store their belongings without ever having to leave their home or business,” Hurley says. “We bring the 8' x 5' x 7' storage to home or office where customers can load their belongings into the container. Then we pick up the container for storage in one of our secure, centrally-located facilities, where customers can access it at any time.”
To maximize profitability, Big Box is generally seeking only one qualified franchisee in each major metropolitan market in the United States, Hurley says. Qualification is based primarily on the prospective franchisee's overall business expertise, entrepreneurial spirit, and available investment.
“We would like to create relationships with people who are as committed to success as the company itself is,” he says. “Our ideal candidate will possess skills in the areas of marketing, communications, and business management.”
Franchising is a hot and growing trend, and for a good reason – it offers clear benefits. These are just some of them:
 Brand Name – Recognizable, trademarked name helps to attract new customers.
 Site Selection Assistance – Based on preferred demographic profiles, Big Box will assist franchisees in finding a facility in their local market to house the new business.
 Exclusive, Protected Territories - Most major metropolitan areas are serviced by a single franchisee, with the exception of a handful of the nation’s largest markets handled by two franchisees.
 Advertising and Marketing Support and Materials – Proven marketing concepts solutions will be provided, along with franchisee co-op advertising. Television commercials, radio spots, yellow page ads, direct mail postcards, and billboards are also available.
 Corporate Website - www.bigbox.com provides prospective clients with a thorough understanding of the service, while also allowing them to schedule actual Big Box deliveries. Existing clients can also use the website to access an array of forms and to pay their monthly storage rent.
These are just some of the numerous advantages of Big Box franchising, Hurley says. “While this business is, first and foremost, a storage company, a franchisee will also enjoy revenues derived from long-distance container shipments among franchisees. Such service will also broaden the potential customer base significantly.”
