College Hunks Hauling Junk And Moving Is A Great Opportunity For Vets

November 11, 2015

The discipline and initiative taught by military service sets up vets beautifully for operating their own junk hauling and moving franchise operation


Vet Fran: A Strategic Initiative of the International Franchise AssosiationOn Veterans Day, we stop to thank our current and former service members for their sacrifices on behalf of the nation. We also want to make sure that these men and women know that many small-business opportunities, such as those afforded by a College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving franchise, await them once their tours of duty have ended.

“We work with a lot of veterans when they reenter civilian life, as well as with some who are finishing up their service, because they want to learn about College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving,” says Jason Killough, Franchise Developer. “Many of these men and women are looking for an opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in the military in an entrepreneurial setting, and we are a great fit for them.”

“We talk to veterans every chance we get, because they are a proven commodity,” adds Nick Friedman, co-founder and President of College Hunks, who has blogged about the value of veterans at the Huffington Post. “They exemplify everything that we value in our own business, and in the people that we bring on board as franchise owners.”

Former service members own franchises nationwide

College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving wants to recognize the veterans who currently operate franchises, including: Dan Tereshko in Boston; Carl Carter in Jackson, Mississippi; Bryan Tully in Jacksonville, Florida; Anthony Auman in Greensboro, North Carolina; Stephen Bienko in Montville, New Jersey; and Chris Virnelson in McKinney, Texas.

“All of these veterans deserve our thanks and respect for their service, and we are thrilled to have them in the College Hunks family,” Jason says. “Each of them has made a huge difference to our business. They are leaders within their communities in so many ways. They mentor the young people they have on their teams, and they get involved in charitable activities and much more on their own, as well as with their employees. We couldn’t ask for better representatives for our brand.”

Veterans benefit from specific discount offerings

A College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving franchise is a good opportunity for veterans in many ways. It allows them to use their team-building and leadership skills to advise and mentor young people, as well as create an unforgettable customer experience.

Even better, getting into a College Hunks franchise is an affordable option. Qualified U.S. military veterans can receive a discount of $5,000 on the initial franchise fee. (He or she also must have at least a 51% interest in the business at all times.) That kind of savings up front is why so many veterans have, and continue to, look at College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving as a viable option for their business plans.

“We really like engaging with veterans, because they are people who know what they want, and are willing to put in the hard work to make those dreams come true,” Jason says. “As we continue expanding around the country, we look forward to meeting many more servicemen and women and helping them to build their own businesses.”
