Michael Lett Appointed Director of Franchise Development at Elizaj

ElizaJ, headquartered in Harwich, Mass., is one of the largest providers of fine self-contained restrooms for catered outdoor events and Lett will be responsible for sales and marketing of ElizaJ franchises as the company begins its westward expansion.

According to Lett, “The ElizaJ franchise program is an ideal business opportunity for someone who is seeking additional income and looking to be their own boss, set their own hours and join the ranks of proud entrepreneurs. It’s a great business model and a turnkey operation.”

Lett is a veteran of the franchising industry with more than 10 years experience in franchise sales and marketing. Previously, he was the Senior Director of Franchise Development at Cendant in New Jersey, a Fortune 500 company. (Cendant’s real estate division is now known as Realogy. Realogy was acquired in 2007 by Apollo Management, a private equity group.) While at Cendant, Lett sold Coldwell Banker and Century 21 real estate franchises. Prior to that, Lett was the Regional Director for Jani-King where he was responsible for overseeing sales, franchising, support and training.

He studied business at East Carolina University in North Carolina and is a state certified Real Estate Appraiser.

“Mike has a terrific track record in franchising sales and will be key in our gaining a foothold in the major markets throughout the U.S.,” said Eliza Kendall, founder and president of ElizaJ.

ElizaJ – Ahead with Class

The ElizaJ company was founded by Eliza Kendall, a former event planner with more than 17 years experience in the special event business. Focused entirely on high quality products and first-rate customer service, Kendall’s company is one of the largest providers of practical, elegant restrooms for outdoor events on the East Coast.

Key advantages of using deliverable restrooms include low cost, portability, water conservation and sanitation facilities where sewer and water are not conveniently available. ElizaJ provides quotes within 24-hours of request and courteous, prompt delivery of impeccable restrooms.

ElizaJ provides clients with affordable, top of the line deliverable restrooms suitable for even the swankiest event. The exterior of each unit/trailer is white or linen-white in color and interior, white with dark blue. The exterior of ElizaJ’s restroom may be decorated with lattice-work or Ficus trees and embellished with white lights which may be used on the ground. Yards of white tulle swags can be draped around the vent pipes. Each restroom contains mirrors, fresh cut flowers at the sinks; mats and wicker wastebaskets; designer soaps and lotions; name brand toilet and tissue paper and air fresheners.

ElizaJ is headquartered in Harwich, MA. For more information, contact 800-437-1139; email or visit their website at
