Alan Regala has had a lifelong passion for problem solving and for helping others. With a background in designing organizational products as well as design and product development of medical devices, Alan has a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford and a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. You could say that becoming a ShelfGenie franchise owner was the next logical step in his career.
“Having moved to Seattle in 2010, I wanted to start a new business. I really liked the concept of buying a franchise since it comes with a built in “partner.” I went with ShelfGenie because of the sound business model, the people behind the scenes in the Home Office and, most importantly, the commitment from those people to deliver the highest quality experience to the end consumer.”
Alan was recognized as the “Franchise of the Year” at the 2013 ShelfGenie National Convention. This prestigious honor is awarded for consistent excellence in all areas of franchise management. “We give this award in recognition of exceptional leadership and outstanding accomplishment,” said Alan Young, CEO and co-founder of ShelfGenie Franchise Systems, LLC.
