Howard Storage World, an Australian-based home storage franchise, has sold its Master Franchise for the UK. Martin Brown and David Smith, who have experience in investment banking and commercial real estate, have been awarded the Howard Storage World UK Master Franchise and are set to open the first outlet in Edinburgh later this year. A further 100 stores are expected to open over the next 10 years.
Dirk Spence, CEO of Howard Storage World, said: “We’re very excited to be expanding into the UK. Consumers today prefer a speciality retail environment and Howard’s success is largely due to our commitment to delivering great range, quality and service. We continue to strive to excel in these areas and feel consumers in the UK will welcome our highly specialised service offering.”
