Joining America’s fastest-growing moving and highest rated junk-hauling franchise has worked for many entrepreneurs seeking a sense of fulfillment from owning their own business right in the local communities where they live. The College HUNKS business plan is specifically designed with a hyper-local focus on each community where it operates and provides owners with the resources and encouragement necessary for them to succeed with their franchise while having a strong sense of purpose.

As a values-based, purpose-driven, socially conscious, tech-enabled franchiser, we have provided the foundation for many of our franchisees to both succeed with their business and have meaningful participation in their community at the same time. Many of our franchise partners have found that they have become leaders in their communities even as they grow their own business by deploying useful and cost-effective strategies, including:

  • Sponsoring local arts or music festivals where they can feature their truck to gain brand awareness.
  • Supporting local religious organizations by offering discounted services to members in need.
  • Serving on the boards of numerous non-profit organizations.
  • Having a presence at many of their local community events.
  • Participating in the Adopt a Highway program, which often yields road clean-up business.
