The results of this year?s annual Top Operators survey are in! There is no denying that the increased awareness of the self-storage industry has created quite a stir within the real estate sector. Everyone seems to want in on the action. In fact, this year more than two dozen companies that were not present on the Top Operators list last year made it on the 2014 list. As in the past, the list is compiled solely from information submitted in the annual survey and is based on total net rentable square feet.
