Franchisee in Focus
This Month we are excited to celebrate the first birthday of our Melbourne South East operators, bringing mobile storage units to their local community.
Abbi and Ritu Gupta are the 'power couple' behind the Melbourne South East Storage Franchise Territory, living locally they operate this store from Bentleigh East. This couple brings together years of work discipline, tons of creativity and a sense of fun to the Super Easy Storage network.
Abbi is the muscles and also brings his ace customer service skills, and Ritu brings her organisational and project management to the successful running of this business. They also manage other ventures in hospitality, analytics and community service work in addition to running their first Super Easy Storage Facility. Abbi and Ritu both finished university with business degrees; although it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make a Super Easy Storage franchise a success, it does take commitment and perseverance which both Ritu and Abbi have in spades.
Ritu also recently gained her CFA charter (a well respected and recognised investment management accreditation) and serves as a Treasurer for Toy Libraries Australia, the peak body for 280 toy libraries in Australia. Super Easy Storage as a franchise business opportunity ‘worked out well’ says Ritu ‘as they were trying to diversify from existing franchise restaurant operations’ “The SES business model has helped achieve more of a work-life balance and survive to the tantrums of our pre-schooler!!!’
We’ve been told on many occasion that they love being a part of the SES family and want to make storage and moving plain-sailing for their customers. They understand that moving and storing one's belongings can be stressful and they want to create ways to reduce the stress so that the customers can enjoy and look forward to the change as a chance to start over.
Cameron Robertson - Super Easy Storage Director of Operations says 'We couldn't be happier with the first year growth at the Melbourne South East territory, the store has certainly out performed first year forecasts.'
