Inside Self-Storage (ISS) is now collecting data for its 2017 Top-Operators List, which identifies 100 of the self-storage industry's leading operators based on total net-rentable square footage. The list includes facility and brand owners, independents, and property-management companies. The data also features the number of locations and units, expansion plans and contact information.
To participate, companies that have been published in a past list can log in to update their existing information. Operators who are new to the process can create a listing through the same Web page. Submissions must be complete by July 28.
The new Top-Operators List will be featured in the October 2017 issue of ISS magazine and published online on Sept. 15. Past lists are available for purchase in the ISS Store. The 2016 store product includes extras not available in the general listing including additional data on owned vs. managed self-storage facilities for each company, with breakouts for number of facilities, units and square footage for each. The package also includes a four-page analytical report, an easy-to-digest list summary, and a sortable Excel file of list participants and their data.
For more than 25 years, ISS has provided informational resources for the self-storage industry. Its educational offerings include ISS magazine, the annual ISS World Expo, an extensive website, the ISS Store, and Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community.
