CNBC’s Blue Collar Millionaires Features College Hunks Hauling Junk Founders

July 13, 2015

Television appearance is the latest in a long line of national media accolades the company has received for its fun, unique concept

When viewers tune in to CNBC’s Blue Collar Millionaires debut airing on July 15, they’ll meet an exterminator, a tattoo club’s owners, a horse breeder and a couple of guys who run a pretty busy moving and junk removal franchise operation.

The docu-series, which CNBC says “profiles big personalities who’ve gotten rich by getting their hands dirty,” is a great fit for College Hunks Hauling Junk founders Omar Soliman and Nick Friedman. The segment highlights all the hard work that went into building the College Hunks Hauling Junk moving and junk removal franchise brand, but it also looks at what they do in their downtime (think cars and boats).

TV appearances highlight hard work, brand appeal

For Nick and Omar, the CNBC show is just another way for them to talk about all the hard work that’s gone into building their company into the nationwide success it is today.

“They wanted to spend some time with us at home with our families, but we also wanted the audience to see all the hard work that goes into what we do,” Nick says. “We showed what goes into an average day for a moving and junk removal franchise owner and his or her team. That’s necessary so that people watching can appreciate how hard College Hunks Hauling Junk works for them when they book us for a job.”

At the same time, adds Omar, “Shows like this are also a great opportunity for us to show our corporate culture, the fun vibe that we have, and the enthusiasm of everyone — from Nick and me through to our management team at headquarters, the great support staff in the Sales and Loyalty Center and then out to the franchises.”

A story that gets better with every telling

And even though College Hunks Hauling Junk has gotten a lot of national media exposure, our story never gets stale.

“There’s no statute of limitations on success, and every time we do an interview we can talk about a bigger number of franchise locations, or a new state that we’re opening up in,” Nick says. “Our success comes from a lot of lessons that we have learned, and that we are eager to share with other entrepreneurs.”

What’s more, says Omar, “We also are seeing more and more of our franchise owners and their teams of hunks getting media coverage in their markets, as well as nationally on networks like CNN. College Hunks Hauling Junk really is a different kind of moving and junk removal franchise, and it makes a great story.”
