5 Reasons to consider franchising

Making a career change – even for the right opportunity – can feel risky and honestly, can be pretty overwhelming. But there is a way to remove much of that risk and have the security, flexibility, and fulfillment of owning a successful business - buy a franchise. Over 300 different industries use the franchise model. Whether buying a franchise is something you’ve considered before or not, it’s something you should consider now. Here’s why.

  1. Proven Track Record of Success – When you buy an already existing, successful franchise, the odds of success are in your favor. There are working service delivery systems, methods, and products already in place, so you don’t have to wonder whether they will work or figure out how to do the job on your own. Those who have already been successful are there to guide you. With College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving, there are well over 100 franchise locations, all thriving.
  1. Known Brand in an Exclusive Territory – Franchises have corporate imaging and often recognizable branding in place – this is priceless! When you buy a franchise, you have the ability to leverage this strength in a territory where only you can use it. When you franchise with College HUNKS, you will benefit from the well-known name and branding that have been put in place over the last 15+ years.
  1. Training Programs/Ongoing Support – Virtually all franchisors offer a comprehensive training program on the specifics of running their franchise – College HUNKS is no different. We’ve got it down to a science! You will receive ongoing support in person and virtually from our team of professionals who are here to ensure your success.
  1. Marketing Support – Franchisors often market their brand and provide you with branded materials that you can use in your local efforts. At College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving, we go above and beyond that by providing you with marketing support at a large scale with an entire team that is experienced in marketing our business and knows the ins and outs of everything from local advertising and review management to social media and beyond.
  1. Financing is Easier – Lenders prefer to provide financing to new business owners who are buying into successful franchises because they believe there is a lower risk of repayment default. Franchises have a 90-95% success rate which is a lot more than most independent small businesses can speak to. From a financial point of view, College HUNKS understands this is a big decision and is ready to offer the support needed to help you secure the necessary financing.
