Learn More About Us & Our College HUNKS Franchise Opportunities
The Nation’s Fastest-Growing Moving & Junk Removal Franchise
Our business started in 2003, and we began franchising in 2006. Our franchise system has more than doubled in size since 2010 and has experienced 337% systemwide growth in the past 7 years, from $442K in 2013 to $1.31M in 2020.
We have been able to rapidly grow by providing a complete, low-cost system that helps franchise owners win customers and generate outstanding word of mouth.
The direction in which we are headed is to be the largest and most popular employer of professionally trained collegiate workers, and to be a launch pad for entrepreneurs who either start their own College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving® businesses, or who use the lessons they learn in our business to launch other concepts and power the economy. Our mission is to help people live the American dream of owning a business and making a positive impact.
Going Above & Beyond
With a name like College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving®, it may surprise you to know that the essence of our brand was best illustrated inside a senior living center. In Spring 2014, Cesar Larios, a College HUNKS team member and student at The Art Institute of Florida, was inside an elevator with a 79-year-old resident when the elevator got stuck. The resident started to worry—she didn’t think she could stand long enough to be rescued. So Cesar dropped to his hands and knees to turn himself into a human bench. This is the very thing that sets College HUNKS apart: making a situation that could have been tense fun instead.
