1-800-Mini-Storage of Troy, Mich., received a "Best of Troy" award for its newest self-storage facility on West Maple Road. The company was chosen from more than 40 applicants by the Troy Chamber of Commerce.
Early this year, 1-800-Mini-Storage opened the 137,000-square-foot building after razing an old metal fabrication on the site. Every unit is climate-controlled, and the facility includes a covered and heated drive-through, a conference room with Wi-Fi, and storage for RVs and trucks.
The chamber collects nominations for the "Best of" awards from individuals and businesses. It votes primarily based on building design, focusing on functionality, use of space, aesthetics and uniqueness.
The Best of Troy winners will be celebrated at the chamber's annual holiday luncheon on Dec. 10, at the Somerset Inn in Troy. Hall of Famer Lem Barney, a former defensive back for the Detroit Lions, will present the keynote address.
1-800-Mini-Storage also operates self-storage facilities in Oak Park and Redford Township, Mich.
