Local Businessman Celebrates Grand Opening by Serving Baltimore Seniors
UNITS Moving and Portable Storage Helps Baltimore Seniors Prepare for Fall and Winter
BALTIMORE, Md. – (June 2019) – A leader in the fast-growing moving and storage industry, UNITS® Moving and Portable Storage, a national franchise brand, is bringing its hyper-local service, high-quality storage containers and competitive pricing to Baltimore neighborhoods and beyond.
The 20,000 square-foot facility at 815 Central Avenue in North Linthicum Heights is minutes from all major interstates, offering easy and quick access for homeowners… and their stuff!
After spending almost 20 years working in the Baltimore real estate and mortgage industry, local businessman Peter Burstein knew the bustling B-town area needed more storage — from commercial businesses to homeowners on the move. His childhood dream of owning his own franchise business (in high school he tried to buy a Philly-based Italian water ice franchise) became a reality when he found UNITS Moving and Portable Storage.
“After years of considering owning a franchise, I found the perfect fit in UNITS Moving and Portable Storage, with their brand, technology and values,” said Burstein. “We are going to do this right as a locally-owned and operated storage company that is entrenched in the community and 110 percent committed to making sure every single customer has a really great experience.”
Commitment to Community
Part of Burstein’s commitment to the community is as a board member for CHAI (Comprehensive Housing Assistance Inc.), a non-profit focused on providing affordable housing and services in northwest Baltimore. His UNITS grand opening celebration will also serve as a kickoff to a “Fill the Unit” Fall and Winter Drive for CHAI, collecting winter emergency supplies and blankets for seniors.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with UNITS of Baltimore and Peter,” said Lisa Budlow, CEO of CHAI. “He has always been so good to our organization. And now, to deepen the relationship by hosting a supply drive to help seniors weather the harsh winter months is very exciting. We look forward to partnering with UNITS throughout the year and working together on making some special deliveries of these packages.”
