Business partners Tariq Din and Shkoor Anwar to open in Glasgow this month
easyStorage now has a presence in Scotland, following the appointment of Tariq Din and Shkoor Anwar as Glasgow franchisees.
The business partners are easyStorage’s 14th franchisees to sign up to offer the affordable mobile storage solution in the UK.
Prior to joining easyStorage, Tariq and Shkoor accumulated vast experience in sales and operations within retail and hospitality with multiple brands and FTSE companies.
Their storage facility, which opens in mid-October, will be able to hold over 500 ‘easyPods’ and offer 24-hour security.
Tariq says: “We were seeking a business model and brand that would have strong recognition and synergy, with a product that would appeal to us and provide customers with a great service.
“easyStorage fitted the bill, offering a business model that is stable and resilient, especially in the current climate.
“Consumers gravitate to brands and this was an easily recognisable brand with a robust business proposition. We’re also delighted that we will be bringing easyStorage to Edinburgh next year.”
easyStorage, part of the easy family of brands founded by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, promises affordable self storage that’s up to half the price of traditional set-ups.
Unlike traditional self-storage, the company brings easyPods to customers’ doors, where they are loaded and transported to an easyStorage facility.
It also provides a return service and customers can access their items whenever required while in an easyStorage facility, with their easyPods transferred to a viewing area.
Nigel Dawson, franchise director and co-founder at easyStorage, says: “We’re thrilled to welcome Tariq and Shkoor as our newest franchisees and first in Scotland to join the easyStorage team.
“They will be providing their customers with great customer service and a well priced storage solution. Our investment in technology, franchise support infrastructure, along with a well known and trusted brand, means a franchise with easyStorage is able to launch from a position of strength.”
easyStorage franchisees are given comprehensive training in business management and smart technology and have the chance to shadow existing franchisees.
The franchise has a relatively low cost of entry, with no need for franchisees to have their own warehouse initially, as easyStorage provides storage facilities.
