Toss Out 2020 and Take Steps to Be Your Own Boss in 2021

Making a fresh start in the new year has never seemed more important as we prepare to end a highly challenging 2020. For many, this will mean becoming their own boss in 2021 by owning a successful franchise business like College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving right in their local community. With a business plan that has proven to be both recession-proof and pandemic-proof, College HUNKS is the choice of many who want to be their own boss through franchise ownership. In a 2020 survey of current College HUNKS franchisees, 45% said they chose to open their College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving franchise location because they wanted to be their own boss, and another 22.5% said they invested with the franchise because they were unhappy with their current career.

College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving is the only full-service residential and commercial service company that offers moving, junk removal, donation pickups, and labor services in the United States as well as Canada. Founded in 2005 by two college buddies with a beat-up cargo van, by 2007 Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman had expanded into franchising efforts that took off across the United States and Canada. Today, the HUNKS brand is a symbol of high-quality moving and junk removal services that are fast, flexible, and dependable.

Growth Continues During the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond

The College HUNKS franchise network reached $100 million in revenue in 2019 and continued to grow in 2020 – even during COVID-19. Listed within the top 3% of all franchise opportunities in the United States, we rapidly built a national presence in the stress-free junk removal and moving space with more than 130 franchise locations operating nationwide. We added 25 new franchise locations and five corporate stores in 2019 – more than in 2017 and 2018 combined. In 2020 – even during the COVID-19 pandemic – we continued to build our brand and bring more franchisees into our network.

Reach Business and Personal Goals with College HUNKS Franchise Ownership

Having the opportunity to reach both business and personal goals appealed greatly to most who have joined the College HUNKS family. We offer a winning combination of a unique concept, a flexible and proven business plan, and a fun and focused culture that emphasizes mentoring business success and giving back to local communities.

Successful College HUNKS franchiser Nancy Ziatyk, who opened her store in Hillsborough, NJ in 2009, found her fit with the brand in her quest to be her own boss. “In my prior career, I learned a lot and wouldn’t trade my experience for anything. But I had young children and the travel for the job was too much. I wanted to start my own business to have more control over my time,” said Nancy, who majored in biochemistry in college and describes her approach to problem-solving as ‘logical’ and with a ‘science brain’. “I was attracted to College HUNKS because I have always been process-driven, with the ability and the flexibility to modify that for improvement over time. I can take a business process – like a franchise – and improve it for efficiency within the parameters of the brand. College HUNKS had the right business model and I could make it my own.”
