Franchisee Satisfaction Experts Name Us A Top Choice For Veterans

November 13, 2018

Everything you learned in the service will help you succeed as an owner of your own thriving moving and junk hauling franchise

College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving has been named one of the top rated franchise opportunities for veterans by Franchise Business Review, which studies franchisee satisfaction and promotes brands that deliver happy outcomes for entrepreneurs.

Franchise Business Review’s 2018 ratings were the result of surveys of 26,000 franchisees representing a broad spectrum of brands.

If you’re a veteran who has left or leaving the service and looking to transition back into the civilian workforce, we urge you to consider purchasing our moving and junk hauling franchise.

At College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving, we are always eager to invite veterans to join our team as franchise owners.

“We talk to veterans every chance we get, because they are a proven commodity,” says Co-Founder and President Nick Friedman, who has written for the Huffington Post about the value veterans can contribute to small businesses. “They exemplify everything that we value in our own business, and in the people that we bring on board as franchise owners.”

We value veterans’ skills


College Hunks is very focused on leadership. We believe in elevating young adults, training them how to be future leaders and, in some cases, owner of their own moving and junk hauling franchise. “One of our core values is building leaders, and teaching people how to conduct themselves and run a business,” Friedman says.

Many of the habits and skills you developed during your time serving our country make you ideally suited for franchise ownership or a job that allows you to grow into an entrepreneur. Characteristics you learned in the military — such as drive, determination, the importance of teamwork and the value of leadership — are crucial to success as a small business owner.

That’s why franchising is such a great fit for a post-military career, and you gain the added benefit of being part of a proven system that can provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to build a successful business. You’ll also be able to rely on your fellow College Hunks owners for advice, support and camaraderie.

“Veterans exemplify everything that we value in our own business, and in the people that we bring on board as franchise owners,” Friedman says.
