Storage Authority LLC, which operates self-storage facilities primarily in Connecticut and offers franchise opportunities, has added two franchise locations to its roster and is planning a third corporate asset. The projects are in various stages of development in Florida, Pennsylvania and Texas, according to a press release.
Storage Authority co-founder Scott House has started the design phase on what will be a 75,000-square-foot facility in Lakeland, Fla. The asset will be built on an 8-arce parcel and offer RV storage in addition to traditional self-storage. Construction is expected to begin this fall.
The company recently added a new franchisee who intends to build a facility in Central Pennsylvania. In addition, an existing franchisee has acquired 4 acres in Houston on which he plans to build a 60,000-square-foot facility. The project is under design, with construction scheduled for the fall, the release stated.
Co-founded by Marc Goodin and House, Storage Authority launched its franchise model in 2015, offering existing self-storage owners and those looking to enter the industry the chance to build a business under the brand’s operational framework. The company also offers consulting services and facility-manager training.
Storage Authority operates two self-storage facilities in Coventry and Mansfield, Conn. It lists Connecticut, Florida, New Jersey, New York and Texas on its website as sites for future locations.
