ShelfGenie Rewards Owners for Good Work

Why franchise owners enjoy being a part of ShelfGenie

When Andrew Kerwin started ShelfGenie in his parents’ Richmond, Virginia, garage, he created a company with a mission to provide organization and accessibility options to homeowners and businesses through offering high-quality, American-made shelving products. Sixteen years later, ShelfGenie is one of the nation’s most respected franchise concepts, with more than 50 locations across the country. And the core mission remains unchanged.

“ShelfGenie takes away the frustration and pain that comes from living in a home that’s inefficient and poorly designed, and it transforms that home into a functional space that is made for enjoyment and love,” says Gillian Harper, Chief Operating Officer with ShelfGenie. “That is what we focus on, and we are transforming the lives of our clients every day.”

ShelfGenie franchisees know they’re bringing a vital product to consumers, and clients agree that the products franchise owners provide are high-quality and durable and, most of all, bring peace of mind that they’ll be able to age in place.

Glide-Out shelving franchise mission drives sales and success

According to AARP, 87% of baby boomers want to age in the homes they’ve spent their lives in. However, as the population grows older, realities change as individuals begin using walking aids and wheelchairs, and as mobility diminishes. Improved accessibility and organization are just a few of the factors driving the $235 billion home remodeling market, and ShelfGenie has established itself as a major player in this competitive industry.

ShelfGenie franchise owners have generated more than $200 million in sales, and the average ShelfGenie project comes in at more than $3,000, making ShelfGenie the kind of high-demand, high-return investment that savvy entrepreneurs crave.

Some of the top minds in franchise management have built our franchise system, which has consistently drawn praise from franchise owners and industry experts alike. In fact, Entrepreneur has named ShelfGenie to its coveted Franchise 500 List for six years and counting.

The ShelfGenie brand is a leading franchise opportunity

In addition to major industry experts, franchise owners love ShelfGenie. Each year, Franchise Business Review publishes results from its survey of more than 150,000 franchise owners nation- and industry-wide. ShelfGenie consistently outperforms other franchise concepts, and ShelfGenie franchise owners give the company high marks across the board.

ShelfGenie consistently ranks high; year in and year out, franchise owner satisfaction propels the company into the FBR Top 50, underscoring how much owners enjoy working with the company. At ShelfGenie, rewarding work inspires success.

“As you work, you realize you want to find things that are meaningful. You want to look back on your life and say you have made a contribution to people,” says Joseph Choi, owner of ShelfGenie of British Columbia. “With ShelfGenie I am able to create things and transform experiences with clients. Getting feedback from clients is so rewarding, from the heart. People can see how much I really love what I do.”

Unlike other home remodeling franchise opportunities, ShelfGenie franchise owners know they’re part of something bigger than just making a sale. They’re changing lives by transforming frustration and pain into enjoyment and love.
