5 Facts Driving The Growth Of The College Hunks Hauling Junk Franchise

March 23, 2015

A rebounding economy, coupled with diverse offerings, positions franchise owners for success through multiple revenue streams

As the U.S. economy recovers, businesses and homeowners alike will be looking to move into larger spaces, as well as get rid of old furnishings and equipment.

People will always need furniture moved, whether that’s from one end of the house to the other, or across town. They’ll also need that same sofa or refrigerator hauled away at some point. That’s why a College Hunks Hauling Junk moving and removal franchise is a better opportunity now than ever before.

Want specifics? Then take a look at these five facts, says Omar Soliman, co-founder and CEO of College Hunks Hauling Junk.

1. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one in six Americans move each year.

2. The average American moves 11.7 times in a lifetime.

“Those figures can fluctuate, but even at their low end they show great opportunity for both junk removal and moving services,” Omar says.

3. The moving and storage industry is a $40 billion industry.

“There are not enough trucks on the road or companies to meet the demand,” Omar adds. “Right now, no company owns more than 2 percent of the industry.”

4. College Hunks Hauling Junk is a viral brand.

“People who hire us take photos of our trucks and post those to social media,” Omar points out. “None of our competitors in the moving and removal franchise sector have this going on. The homeowners and businesses we serve appreciate everything we offer, from quick, courteous information provided by our Client Loyalty Center to the performance they get from our professional, well-dressed teams at the move site.”

5. According to the Employee Relations Council, moving is the third-most stressful event in life, eclipsed only by death and divorce.

That’s why clients also appreciate the reliability of a College Hunks Hauling Junk moving and junk removal franchise.

“We have a very lofty opportunity to remove that stress and anxiety,” Omar says. “That really is a noble purpose: What we do isn’t just about moving or removing belongings, but helping to reduce the stress that the client is experiencing. College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise owners have an opportunity every day to make a positive emotional impact on their community, and they do. This is really what we are all about, and this value-added approach is definitely why we are viewed very differently from, and much more positively than, our competitors.”
