The ShelfGenie Franchise System allows our owners to focus on marketing and sales while leveraging design consultants and installation partners with the following systems and services:

  • Streamlined Business Processes: Our exclusive 14 Step process allows you, in conjunction with the Business Support Center, installation partners and manufacturer to manage the customer relationship – from welcome call to measurement to building to shipment to installation to final payment
  • Centralized Business Support Center: ShelfGenie’s Business Support Center receives all customer calls, schedules sales appointments, and makes customer service calls for you! Our advanced phone system allows us to transfer and monitor calls, review call activity, establish remote extensions for each franchise and more
  • WishPortal Franchise Management System: Our proprietary, web-based system allows you to manage all aspects of your business – realtime and online. Dashboards and reports provide you the information you need to make important business decisions

Of course, you will have the support you need to open and operate your ShelfGenie business, including:

  • Comprehensive start-up training at our home offices
  • Sales training program that allows you to recruit and train self-generating Designers
