Entrepreneurs Rachel Keller and Bruce Nichols are developing Carl’s White Glove Persona Storage & Wine Vault in Naples, Fla. The self-storage facility at 11201 Tamiami Trail E. will specialize in wine storage and “luxury” units. It’ll feature inventory-management solutions, pickup and delivery services, wine-cellar professional management, and wine-acquisition and divestment consultation, among other offerings. The site, which will also be equipped with solar energy as a power backup, is expected to open on May 1, according to the company website.
Keller and Nichols have extensive wine-industry knowledge. Keller is a high-end concierge specialist, with more than 25 years of expertise dealing with affluent clients and the multi-channel wine market. Nichols owns The Wine Store, a high-end specialty retail outlet. He also has four decades of hospitality and wine-industry expertise, according to the website.
The facility was designed by local firm MHK Architecture & Planning and is being built by Gates Construction Inc.
