August 19, 2021

The annual Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.

Inc. magazine revealed this week the Inc. 5000 list which encompasses College HUNKS Hauling Junk and MovingĀ® and ten College HUNKS franchise locations. The annual Inc. 5000 list is the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment - its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

"We are incredibly excited to be named to the 2021 Inc. 5000 list, and it's greatly in part to our franchise partners who have embraced our vision and helped us grow our company through their hard work and dedication. We were fortunate to expand our presence during an uncertain and difficult period. Still, it speaks to how our franchisees were able to meet the moment and really shine," said Nick Friedman, Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS.

"The corporate franchisor team is thrilled to have made the list, and we are extremely proud of our ten individual franchise-owned locations that also made the list. This truly speaks to the potential growth that franchising offers and the commitment to our core values that emphasizes providing quality and thoughtful service to our customers and actively exploring ways that we can help our neighbors and lift those in need."

College HUNKS that made the Inc. 5000 are listed below:

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year's list also proved exceptionally resilient and flexible given 2020's unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
