PODS Founder Pete Warhurst’s new logistics firm, Red Rover Moving and Storage, has launched a franchising program and would like to add 20 franchise locations in 2023, according to a news release.

Red Rover’s executive management team will provide franchisees with detailed training and the use of the brand’s trademark, technologies and processes. Ideal franchisee candidates must be qualified investors with operational and business experience.

Red Rover’s “fetchable storage” concept has quickly caught on since Warhurst founded the firm in 2020. It now operates in 15 U.S. markets, including Chicago; Denver; Fort Myers; Las Vegas; Phoenix; San Diego; Washington, D.C.; and Sacramento, California.

“As we expand the Red Rover brand across the United States, we want to partner with savvy and experienced individuals who want to be a part of an exciting, new concept that is creating a new category in the moving and storage industries – fetchable moving and storage,” Warhurst states in the release. 

“Expanding via franchising will enable us to grow our footprint more quickly. While our current model already services almost two thirds of long-distance movers in the country, it is important to offer our concept to more local movers and storers. We believe that together with our franchisees we can create an innovative company that fills a huge need in the industry.”
