    Construction, retail, nonprofits, restaurants, landscape, and let's not forget my favorite tenant who rents SEVEN units from me who is in the adult entertainment business.

    Don't lock yourself in to thinking it's only certain types of business that need storage. Any business can have a need for storage. For non climate at one site I had a bounce house company rent a unit which I had never thought about before as needing one. I made a quick flyer and went to craigslist and started searching for people advertising their own bounce house businesses and sent them emails about our storage. Within a few months I had 7 bounce house companies storing there. I knew a guy in the Orlando area that ran a site which about 35% of his total occupancy was Victoria's Secret for all of their locations in Orlando that he managed to get by soliciting their business. I personally will market to any business as everyone has inventory/records they have to keep somewhere pretty much.

    A great business customer to court is local Real Estate/ Home Staging companies; the ones who setup furniture for houses on the market. We have 4 of them with us, and they are wonderful tenants. The added bonus is the word of mouth to other real estate agents AND the buyers/sellers who also likely need storage. Win all around.
