Schoeppner Inc., a Rochester, Minn., general contractor, is set to enter the self-storage industry with a facility opening next week and a second location scheduled to open this fall. All Around Self Storage at 1770 75th St. N.E. will begin serving customers on Monday, with 81 units available. The property is adjacent to the company’s office in the northeast part of the city and will eventually offer 180 units, according to the source.
Due to the proximity of the facility to the Schoeppner office, the company’s staff will assist customers. "There's a huge need for [storage]," owner Tammy Schoeppner said. "We had land in the back that we had no use for, so we decided to do this."
A second facility is under construction in the southwest part of Rochester. Called Southwest Storage, the facility at 5253 Commercial Drive S.W. will offer 200 units as well as boat and RV storage. It is expected to open in September.
The site is at the end of a frontage road along U.S. 52 South. The project is near where a 42,000-square-foot entertainment complex was proposed seven years ago but never built. Schoeppner said this area of the city is growing and is a good fit for self-storage.
Schoeppner Inc. is a family owned business founded in 1997. It is a full-service general contractor and design company that has worked with commercial, manufacturing and industrial clients, according to its website.
