Despite the Pandemic, Local Mother-Son Duo Team Up to Open a Small Business in Lubbock | College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving
I’m writing to share an interesting story about a mother and son who teamed up to pursue their dreams of business ownership… during a pandemic! In early July, Rita and her son Alex officially opened their College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving franchise serving the greater Lubbock area.
Although Rita serves as the Hospitality Director for LakeRidge United Methodist, she plans to split her time and will support her son Alex as he starts up the business. Rita said, “I love my job, but have the time right now during COVID to help Alex get up and running. We work well together, and hope to build something for our family’s future.”
The Ritters chose College HUNKS because of the proven business model, as well as the company’s culture of giving back. “The business has been around since 2005, and the founders have put in the work to develop a customer-focused business with a great culture. We hope to not only provide jobs locally, but help our service professionals grow with us,” Additionally, Rita says the company’s commitment to helping its owners give back to their local communities made College HUNKS the right fit that aligned with their values. 60% of the junk hauled from customers’ homes is donated, and the rest is responsibly disposed of. Additionally, College HUNKS has a national partnership with Feeding Children Everywhere, which strives to end childhood hunger. For every service the HUNKS complete, two nutritious meals are donated to a family or child in need, and within 3 years of this partnership, donations have exceeded one-million meals.
“College HUNKS is a values-based brand that prioritizes the fact that we’re ‘Always Building Leaders’,” said Nick Friedman, President and Co-founder of College HUNKS. “College HUNKS leadership means providing team-wide opportunity for growth, focusing on amazing service, and making a positive impact not only in the company, but in every community we serve.”
