A SELF-storage company that brings “pods” to customers’ doors has welcomed its first franchisees based in Dorset.
Family and business partners Spencer Bowley, Anita Bowley and Connor Budny will run easyStorage, covering the county and its neighbours Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset.
easyStorage, part of a family of brands founded by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, promises affordable self-storage to individuals and businesses.
It brings ‘easyPods’ to customers’ doors and takes them away to a storage facility, where they can be stacked high and deep for maximum efficiency.
The company says the method saves space in depots and it can pass on the savings to customers.
Spencer and Anita Bowley have run other businesses in the area, while Spencer’s son Connor is a marketing graduate setting out on his first business venture.
Their storage facility is in Bournemouth but they plan to have other locations across their territory.
Nigel Dawson, franchise director and co-founder at easyStorage, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Spencer, Anita and Connor to our franchise offering in the UK and welcome them to the easyStorage team.
“They will be providing their customers in the south of England with affordable mobile storage from their base in Dorset and their ambition and drive is well-suited to the easyStorage brand.
“Our comprehensive training and investment in smart technology means they can really hit the ground running and we look forward to the launch of their business franchise.”
Mr Bowley said: “As multi-business owners we are really excited to start this new venture with a product, brand and USP (unique selling proposition) we really believe in.
“We heard about the opportunity through a business network we regularly meet with and it was too good not to pursue. It will be the first time my son, Connor, is part of the business and he has hit the ground running. We are a strong family business with the attention to detail and drive needed to make everything we do as successful as we can, and our new easyStorage venture will be no exception.”
