Demand for home organization products is on the rise. Homeowners searched for ways to create multifunctional spaces to accommodate remote working immediately following the pandemic outbreak. As hybrid schedules and working from home continue to become the norm, minimizing clutter and streamlining organization remains a priority. The home organization market is forecast to grow 2.1% per year, hitting $13.5 billion by 2025, according to Freedonia Group. Professional sales are slated to outpace DIY projects as customers turn to experts to save time and reduce hassle.

Before investing in a franchise, it’s essential to determine if it will meet your goals and expectations for business ownership. Owning a franchise provides a business with a history of profitability and procedures to follow. Franchising allows entrepreneurs to become business owners with less risk and support. But, there are a lot of different franchise options to explore in the home organization industry. To understand how ShelfGenie measures up to The Tailored Closet, let’s take a closer look at its history, costs, fees, and procedures.

<H2>Shelving Specialists

ShelfGenie started in 2000 when its founder, Andrew Kerwin, installed his first set of custom gliding shelves in his parent’s kitchen cabinets. He founded the company with his parents and started franchising in 2007. After expanding to approximately 50 locations, ShelfGenie was acquired by Neighborly, one of the largest franchisors of home services, in 2020. Neighborly franchises 17 brands with at least 5,000 locations, including Molly Maid, Mosquito Joe, and Glass Doctor.

The initial investment for a ShelfGenie franchise is $42,350 to $135,500. ShelfGenie owners gain access to Neighborly’s proven system and solid reputation as part of the franchise agreement. Neighborly’s vast portfolio allows franchise owners to take advantage of complementary brands to diversify their income and increase profit potential.

Despite the advantages of the backing of a strong franchise player, ShelfGenie’s home organization solutions are limited. They specialize in shelving for existing cabinets, rather than a whole home organization service. A limited number of locations are starting to offer closet solutions. While the upfront costs of ShelfGenie are lower than The Tailored Closet, ShelfGenie franchise owners rely on the parent company to provide follow-up services, including installation. As a result, they do not need to purchase installation equipment, but they have less control over the end product.
