ShelfGenie home improvement franchise combines passion with purpose
Our home improvement franchise provides custom storage solutions that make clients’ lives easier
ShelfGenie is a home improvement franchise that provides customized Glide-Out shelving and storage solutions to clients nationwide and offers entrepreneurs a scalable, home-based, low-entry-cost business opportunity that can combine passion with a greater purpose.
We transform spaces and make homes more livable, and that’s appealing to franchisees who have a passion for organizing as well as a need to help improve people’s lives. A home that is disorganized, cluttered or increasingly inaccessible to an aging homeowner can be stressful. As a ShelfGenie franchise, you can turn that point of pain into a source of joy.
“ShelfGenie is a custom shelving and storage solution franchise, but more importantly, we are a franchise that connects emotionally with our clients,” says CEO Allan Young. “We’ve remodeled tens of thousands of kitchen cabinets, pantries, bathrooms and garages since we started franchising in 2007, and we’ve earned a place on the Entrepreneur 500 list of top franchises for seven consecutive years.”
How we help franchisees
ShelfGenie offers incredible end-to-end support that eliminates many of the tasks that business owners typically have to juggle. Our Atlanta-based Business Support Center handles much of the administrative work of business ownership for you:
- We schedule your appointments and call clients to remind them when to expect your team.
- Our sales team actively helps build your business by fielding calls from potential clients and reaching out to new contacts you’ve made in the field.
- We handle client services calls, which helps us maintain brand message consistency.
- We track client satisfaction via follow-up calls after services have been provided.
Our top-notch franchisee support allows you to stay focused on growing your business. We train you on how to design and install our custom storage solutions, and as you scale up you can outsource those jobs to contract workers, which will provide you with even more time and resources to scale up.
We also make it easy to get started. We are a low-cost/low-overhead business that you can easily manage from your home office. Because we manufacture custom storage solutions based on specifications you provide, you don’t need a workshop or a warehouse.
Why invest now?
The need for unique home improvement services will rise exponentially as the number of senior citizens doubles to around 84 million by 2050, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Among people aged 50-64, the AARP says that 71% would prefer to stay in their current homes. The number is even higher for the 65-and-older population: 87% wish to age in place. The majority of ShelfGenie’s core clients are Baby Boomers and seniors who want to age in place, so our ability to provide easy access to the most-used spaces makes homes both safer and more enjoyable.
We also find potential clients among the huge numbers of people of all ages who live in older homes, which aren’t typically renowned for their storage spaces. The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University reports that more Americans are choosing to invest in retrofitting their existing homes. Homeowners choose ShelfGenie because they can get peerless, American-made, customizable solutions at a price that suits their budgets.
