College Hunks Hauling Junk Franchisee Revenue Grows 42.6% In Two Years

October 15, 2014

Average revenue for College Hunks Hauling Junk franchisees grew quickly from 2011 to 2013, continues to climb

Sooner or later, everyone’s going to need to move, or to get rid of unwanted and extra household items. Offering that kind of “evergreen” service at reasonable prices is why College Hunks Hauling Junk is one of America’s most successful junk removal and moving franchise operations, posting revenue growth of 42.6% between 2011 and 2013.

The junk removal and moving franchise business offers much more than just a steady income stream, however. College Hunks Hauling Junk is also affordable in terms of start-up costs, making it a more viable option for entrepreneurs who want to begin their own business, but can’t swing the steep fees of other franchise operations. Most College Hunks Hauling Junk franchises are up and running for between $95,000 and $207,950, and they are very easy to scale in addition to having turnkey financing options available.

Average revenue soars

When you compare those start-up costs to average revenue for franchise locations, which was $442,504 in 2013, that’s a return on investment anyone can get behind. The original business, which set up shop in Washington D.C. during 2005, brought in $2.2 million in 2013, up from $500,000 in 2005. Those solid figures demonstrate the value, and the growth, of the junk removal franchise and moving franchise opportunity.

“Nobody likes the idea of hauling away the stuff they don’t want any more, and nobody enjoys the moving process,” says Nick Friedman, College Hunks Hauling Junk co-founder. “That’s why our brand is never going to go out of style. We’re not trendy; we’re here to stay.”

Further, Nick notes that College Hunks Hauling Junk has at its core a strong dedication to solid customer service, but also a culture that celebrates hard work and success.

“From our call center that answers consumer questions and books appointments for our franchisees to our online presence that does the same, we work as hard as our franchisees do to grow their business,” Nick says. “Combine that with training, marketing and other services, and you’ve got a franchise opportunity that has all the tools in place for success.”

A new kind of removal and moving business

The junk removal sector, and moving companies in general, don’t have the best reputation — late arrivals, no-shows and other horror stories abound. But College Hunks Hauling Junk is changing all that. Our franchisees work to ensure a smooth — even fun — transaction for clients. They also benefit from the  brand’s award-winning marketing plan and a national presence that includes highly complimentary appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC’s Shark Tank, HGTV’s House Hunters, AMC’s The Pitch and Fox Business, as well as highly complimentary write-ups in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Inc. and more.

Best of all, College Hunks Hauling Junk isn’t just hiring young people and giving them a solid footing in business ethics and customer service. It’s a relatively ground-floor opportunity itself, so our junk hauling franchise owners have a lot of room to grow. College Hunks Hauling Junk is less than a decade old, and it’s expanding rapidly in many markets — but those ground-floor opportunities won’t last long.

“Most of our franchise competitors have sold out or are offering very limited territory sizes,” Nick says. “We’ve doubled in size in the past two years, but we still have prime territories available for now, so this is the time to act.”
