One of the things that I really liked about ShelfGenie was the business model. It's a fantastic business model and I couldn't find anything that topped it. I respect the senior leadership; ShelfGenie is run by intelligent people…But the thing that really put it over the top for me was the culture. I love the sense of community. I made a lot of phone calls to other franchisees while I was doing my research on the franchise system and it really differentiated itself from other franchise concepts. The willingness to help people, to help others for the greater good of the whole franchise system was a real take away for me and I felt like I fit in.
