Our story

OpenUnit is the all-in-one platform self-storage facilities need to run their business - whether a single mom-and-pop site or a multi-facility corporation. We help operators focus on what matters, providing a flawless customer experience through empowering teams and driving better and faster decision making.

Founded in Toronto, Canada in 2019, our complete set of tools gives storage operators the things they need most—a powerful online presence, reservation system, merchant solutions and management software that simplifies the process of running a storage business. OpenUnit is a member of the Canadian Self Storage Association (CSSA).

Founder story

About four years ago, Taylor and Lucas met at Nudge Rewards where they built digital products that empowered teams to deliver great customer experiences.

Having both caught the customer experience bug, they went their separate ways and honed their skills with Taylor building ticketing experiences at the world’s largest entertainment company and Lucas creating products used by millions of people in the waste industry.

It took a combination of wanting to “get the band back together” and a couple horrible experiences trying to find and rent self storage to find that spark needed to create OpenUnit - an alternative to the piecemeal, unintuitive, and bloated software that powers much of the self storage industry today.

With over a year of development, completion of Y Combinator, and a COVID-necessitated cross-country drive, OpenUnit is ready to deliver on its mission to give facility owners, big and small, access to high-end tools that grow their top and bottom lines.
