Our Vision

Vessel imagines a return to a world in which local housing is provided by local people.

Whether you are an experienced developer or an entrepreneur with the goal of entering the multifamily industry, Vessel offers you the keys to success. If you have land, great! But if you don't, we've got you covered. You won't need an architect or a builder, so you'll save a lot of time and avoid a ton of risk. If you have access to capital, you can put it to work, but if you don't we've got investors that want to back you. Maybe you have experience in running an apartment building, but that's not key, as we will teach you everything you need to know at Vessel University. In other words, we've got you!

Capt. Joseph Deacon, Vessel's first Franchisee, also serves as a Captain of his city's fire department. For Capt. Deacon, Vessel represents an opportunity to expand upon his service to his community while charting a stable career path for a future beyond his retirement from the fire department.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate is someone who wants to become a housing provider to their neighbors. Who wants the security of an investment in bricks and mortar, of something that's essential, that's not a fad, that's not at risk of becoming obsolete, that's generational. Who wants to join Vessel's mission and offer equal opportunity to those that deserve a dignified place to call home. Who is willing to put in the hard work it will take to succeed, but will love every minute of it because they are making a difference for themselves, their families and the future of their community.

An Opportunity that Works for You

If you’re an experienced developer....

You'll identify a site that meets Vessel's basic requirements, as can be found HERE and present it to us for approval.

Once we've approved your site, we will provide you with a project budget (the cost of the Vessel system, including installation, is fixed and guaranteed).

We'll also provide you with everything you'll need to file for all necessary local approvals, including P&Z and permitting.

As soon as your approvals are in place, you'll complete your site preparation work, based on plans and specifications we'll provide.

With your site prep work complete, we will schedule you for delivery and installation.

Just a handful of months later, you’ll be ready for opening. We will be there to support you every step of the way, from pre-opening to long-term success.

If you're an aspiring developer....

We will offer you the opportunity to invest in and operate a Vessel location that we've already developed.

Your upfront investment will be based on the size of your location, among other factors, but generally will fall within the range of $50,000-$150,000.

You'll also enter into a lease with Vessel, and you'll be obligated to pay monthly rent to us that will vary depending on the size and location of your property.

Before taking the reins, you'll attend Vessel University, where we will teach you everything you need to know to ensure your success.

If you’re an institutional or corporate user....

Whether you’re a hospital hoping to house your staff, a university with unmet housing needs for your faculty or students, or a company with the goal of providing workable housing options for your workforce, Vessel has custom-tailored turnkey solutions that will work for you.

The Process

The best way to get started is to reach out by completing our Initial Inquiry Form.

We’ll quickly reach out to you to better understand your goals and ambitions.

Let’s then pick a time to meet so that we can walk through our process in person and to make sure that we are aligned as to the commitment you’re about to make. During this visit, you’ll have the opportunity to explore our process, our product, and what makes Vessel special.

The next step is to dig into the paperwork of financial/asset verification and the franchise documents.

Before you know it, your journey as a Vessel Franchisee will be underway.
