College Hunks ranked 19th categorically in 2015 top 200 list
Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm, announced that College Hunks Hauling Junk joins the elite companies in their annual Top 200 Franchise Companies List for Franchisee Satisfaction. The list, entitled The Best of the Best, Top 200 Franchise Systems List for 2015, ranked hundreds of participating franchise companies by their overall levels of franchise owner satisfaction.
College Hunks Hauling Junk was ranked 19th in services and overall surpassed the franchise-industry average and service industry average. The moving and packaging industries alone generate $9.7 billion a year, according to the American Moving & Storage Association. While there are no reliable figures for the size of the junk-hauling industry, experience says that there is tremendous demand for the service. The first College Hunks Hauling Junk business in Washington, D.C., became a million-dollar business in two years on junk removal alone.
We are the fastest-growing junk removal franchise and moving franchise in America. Recently we made Entrepreneur magazine’s list of top franchise opportunities for the fifth year in a row. We grow because of our professionalism and our sophisticated marketing in an industry that is constantly in demand.
The Franchise Business Review Top 200 ranking deservedly puts us in the company of the best franchise companies in the country. Only companies like us with excellent fundamentals, great financial position and high franchisee satisfaction scores earn a spot in the ranking. More than 3,000 companies franchise in the United States.
The franchise magazine surveyed 28,500 franchisees from 350 brands that have at least 10 franchises in North America. Only 200 of those companies made this year’s list, and we were one of them. The survey ascertained franchisees’ thoughts on financial opportunity, training and support, leadership, operations and product development, core values (e.g., honesty and integrity of franchisor), general satisfaction and the franchisee community.
“I’ve been involved with many franchise owners in my years at College Hunks, and I am very pleased with their performance and progress,” Omar says.
