College Hunks Hauling Junk is the fastest-growing junk-hauling franchise and moving franchise in America. The company was started in 2003 by Omar Soliman and Nick Friedman, and it began franchising in 2006. Omar and Nick have been named two of the top young entrepreneurs in America by “Inc.” magazine. They literally wrote the best-selling book on entrepreneurship, co-authoring “Effortless Entrepreneur” to share the lessons, planning and strategies that have made College Hunks Hauling Junk an overwhelming success. College Hunks Hauling Junk has been named one the fastest growing companies in America by “Inc.” and has made “Entrepreneur” magazine’s list of top franchise opportunities for five years in a row and counting.
The growth is driven by a smart business model that allows College Hunks owners to act as executives in their businesses. They build the business in their community and provide leadership for their teams, but they are not in the truck hauling junk or moving couches. They’re building the business — and College Hunks gives them the tools they need to do it!
College Hunks Hauling Junk also has impressive brand recognition. The franchise has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC’sShark Tank, HGTV’sHouse Hunters, AMC’sThe Pitch, Bravo’sThe Millionaire Matchmaker, TLC’s_Hoarding: Buried Alive_andFox Business_,as well as in _The Wall Street Journal,The New York Times,USA Today,_Time_magazine, _The Huffington Post, Forbes, Inc._and more.
College Hunks Hauling Junk has been in demand — from franchisees, customers and the media — because our business is fun and rewarding, and our systems create a great experience for our customers and our franchise partners. Chief among those systems is our national call center, which books and schedules jobs for our franchisees seven days a week — a service that saves franchisees money and time. The call center also makes the business easier to manage. That’s important, because there is tremendous demand.
Why is now a great time to start a moving franchise?
Moving and junk hauling are always in demand because people are alway s moving to buy a bigger home, to downsize in retirement or to start a new job. According to the American Moving & Storage Association, about 36 million Americans move each year. Real estate sales drive much of the opportunity for sales, and as home sales increase, so does the need for moving and junk hauling. Of course, a company with great systems and superior service can grow market share even during a weak economy, but with real estate on the upswing, now is an ideal time to establish yourself in this industry.
College Hunks Hauling Junk also has prime territories available nationwide, and we award large territories to franchisees. We expect to quadruple in size before running out of prime territories — but that should take just a few years. Now is the time to check on theopportunity in your city and seize it if it’s still available.
“By becoming an owner of this franchise I can provide a service that my competitors aren’t capable of or willing to do. Plus, just the name itself is a conversation piece.”
Carl Carter -Jackson, Mississippi
“When you have an environment where people enjoy working, you build a great culture that gives a team a focus. Throughout my career I developed a lot of assistants who became store managers, and the chance to keep helping people get to a higher level was very appealing. My title is the ‘Director of WOW and Amaze,’ and if I WOW and amaze my Hunks, they WOW and amaze my clients.”
Steven Roper -Raleigh, North Carolina
