Forbes Calls College Hunks One Of Shark Tank’s Biggest Franchising Successes

September 27, 2017

College Hunks junk removal franchise opportunities earn positive media coverage and recognition, driving nationwide growth and rising sales for owners

Forbes recently named our junk removal franchise opportunity as one of the “10 Best Franchises to Buy from Shark Tank,” and we couldn’t be prouder. It’s a great showcase of how far we’ve taken our brand since we stood before the sharks, and a testament to how our business model has helped our franchisees grow and succeed.

One of the ‘10 Best Franchises to Buy from Shark Tank’

Shark-Tank-1After being featured on the very first episode of Shark Tank, we set a high bar for the innovative and exciting concepts that followed us on the show. Forbes says Shark Tank is “the holy grail of public relations for small businesses,” and that proved true for us; our star has only risen as we’ve grown our moving and junk hauling franchise into a national brand, while still maintaining a small business-style focus on customer service.

We’ve proven the market wants that high-quality service, and it’s helped us expand to nearly 100 units nationwide. Better still, our franchisees’ sales are growing at a rapid pace as increased brand recognition helps them capture more of that demand: average revenue has increased every year since 2013, rising more than 77% in that time.

An attention-getting junk removal franchise opportunity

When people see the strength of our moving and junk removal franchise opportunities, they can’t help but take a second look. In addition to our Shark Tank appearance, we’ve received raves and recognition around the franchising and business worlds thanks to the success of our franchisees and our business model.

Here are just some of the recent accolades and press coverage we’ve received:

  • One of Franchise Gator’s 2017 Top 100 Franchises and Fastest-Growing Franchises.
  • Listed on the prestigious Entrepreneur Franchise 500; 2017 marked our sixth appearance.
  • Listen360 Net Promoter Score on customer satisfaction outperforms Costco, Apple and Amazon.
  • Interviewed on Amazing Business Radio.
  • Featured in the Inc.com video series “The Playbook.”

And that’s not to mention appearances in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and on Fox Business. Our brand is an attention-getter, and that helps us stand out in the marketplace and makes it easier for you to market and communicate your value to potential clients in your service area.
