Retail franchise Howards Storage World has signed a master franchise in the UK. The first store will open in Edinburgh in October 2009 with another 100 stores anticipated for England, Scotland and Wales over the next 10 years.
The UK master franchisees, Martin Brown and David Smith have experience in investment banking and commercial real estate. Brown said Howards Storage World responds to a growing demand for stylish and functional home storage solutions.
