Buy American: Junk Removal Franchise is a U.S.-Based Franchise Opportunity, Unlike Canada-Based 1-800-Got-Junk

College Hunks Hauling Junk, the nation’s fastest-growing junk removal franchise, is based in the U.S., as opposed to our Canadian franchise counterparts, 1-800-Got-Junk

Launching a business and being your own boss are a big part of the American Dream. The question is how to find the right opportunity in an expanding industry. For growing numbers of entrepreneurs, the answer is a junk removal franchise.

The all-American junk removal franchise that many select is College Hunks Hauling Junk, which is based right here in the United States and started originally in our nation’s capital of Washington D.C.

College Hunks is a strong, energetic brand that is gaining ground on its big, Canada-based rival, 1-800-Got-Junk. Since College Hunks still has a lot of room to grow, there are a lot of opportunities for new franchises in prime territories.

College Hunks Hauling Junk has more than 50 franchisees and plans to triple in size in the next three to five years, which would make it about the size that the 1-800-Got-Junk franchise is today. College Hunks offers two business models under one brand – a junk removal franchise and a moving franchise – and most franchisees choose both concepts because the business models complement each other, just like burgers and fries.

As America’s economy grows and creates jobs, people are relocating and buying homes and renting apartments. Before they move, they often need the services of a junk removal company. After they declutter, they want the services of a moving company they trust.

At least 35.9 million Americans make a move each year, according to The American Moving & Storage Association, making the local moving industry a $10-billion-a-year business. The junk removal business is also sizeable. Both industries are highly fragmented, so there are growing opportunities for a professionally run and well-marketed business to grab market share.

College Hunks Hauling Junk is quickly establishing itself as a rival of the 1-800-Got-Junk franchise. College Hunks was founded in 2003 by Omar Soliman and Nick Friedman and began franchising in 2008. Since that time it has become the fastest-growing junk removal franchise and moving franchise in America.

In fact, Inc. magazine has named College Hunks Hauling Junk one of the fastest-growing companies in America. The company also has been on Entrepreneur magazine’s list of top franchise opportunities for five years in a row.

College Hunks’ growth is fueled by a fun culture, complete with professional-looking uniforms and owners who coach their teams to success. The company’s smart business model empowers franchise owners to spend their time building their businesses, networking with potential lead sources and mentoring employees – not doing the actual junk hauling or furniture moving.

College Hunks’ fun name, unique culture and great service generate a lot of media attention for our junk hauling franchise and moving company franchisees. The company has been featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, HGTV’s House HuntersThe Oprah Winfrey Show, AMC’s The Pitch, Bravo’s The Millionaire Matchmaker, TLC’s Hoarding: Buried Alive and Fox Business, as well as in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, Time magazine, The Huffington Post, Forbes and others.

College Hunks Hauling Junk is an all-American success story, so it’s no wonder so many entrepreneurs are considering making it part of their own success stories.
