February 8, 2021

Looking for the Best Franchise to Own?

When you are looking for the best franchise to own, look no further than the one that has proven to be successful over the past decade and beyond—College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving®. Listed within the top 3% of all franchise opportunities in the United States, College HUNKS has established a national presence in the stress-free junk removal and moving space. With more than 150 franchise locations operating nationwide in a network that reached $140 million in revenue in 2020, College HUNKS added 40 new franchise locations and five corporate stores during the year—more than in 2017 and 2018 combined. In 2020—even during the COVID-19 pandemic—we were able to continue to build our brand and bring more franchisees into our network.

There are several important reasons why the College HUNKS brand is the best franchise to own:

Award-Winning, Resilient Business Model — With an award-winning business model that is both resilient and flexible, College HUNKS Hauling Junk & Moving franchise partners are not only surviving the COVID-19 pandemic, they are thriving. As a brand, we made a few highly-effective tweaks to our business model to adjust to the industry’s new normal:

  • Curbside junk removal
  • Express curbside junk removal
  • No contact quotes
  • No contact payment for services
  • Extra support for franchisees from home/virtual settings, including the services of the Sales and Loyalty Center (call center)
  • Training for new franchisees conducted virtually

Best in Class Training — College HUNKS comprehensive franchisee training is unparalleled in the industry. We provide 10-12 weeks of ramp-up for our new franchise partners, including a 150-point checklist and weekly calls. Franchise partners spend one week at Corporate Headquarters for training (temporarily being conducted virtually because of COVID) and three days on-site with a high-performing franchise location. All of these efforts are focused on the skills we know our franchisees will use every day to run and grow their own business. We have found these components in our training to be invaluable.

Business Coach Driven Mentorship — Because coaching and mentoring are a huge part of our company culture, every franchisee gets a dedicated Franchise Business Coach that will work with them on an ongoing basis to maximize their growth and success. The coaches support franchisees with ongoing coaching to help improve operations and profitability through monthly coaching calls where performance is analyzed, questions answered, regular site visits (more virtual today) from the coaches so franchisees can engage face-to-face with coaches, and participate in Momentum Groups that give franchise partners a chance to learn from other franchise partners in a structured setting. Our franchise partners also have access to the College HUNKS Performance Team that provides training and support to franchise partners, site visits to ensure goals are being reached, and profits are being maximized.

Additionally, all franchisees receive operations manuals, access to videos, and an online knowledge library, as well as webinars on topics related to running a business. Our franchisees also have access to an internal social media platform where all College HUNKS franchise owners communicate with one another, share ideas, and solve issues.

Operations Support to Boost Sales — Every franchise location receives the support of the College HUNKS Sales and Loyalty Center. The center fields incoming calls from customers nationwide, seven days a week, and schedules jobs for our junk removal and moving franchise partners. We have found this works well because there is no doubt that calls will be answered regardless of how busy a location may be on a given day.

State of the Art Technology — We have an award-winning website that is easy for customers to find when they search for our services online and we are constantly making efforts to increase traffic to our website, so that our customers can also book junk removal and moving jobs online. Our online knowledgebase is constantly being updated for our franchisees with resources for managing human resources, marketing, and operations. We also offer our easy-to-use online scheduling tool that allows the call center or the franchisee to book jobs quickly and efficiently to serve customers and maximize revenues.

Exceptional National Brand Recognition and Marketing — All College HUNKS trucks are emblazoned with our branding and phone number, the trucks are hard to miss, and the phone number is easy to remember. Visitors to our website can access a ton of practical advice, and content that shows potential customers that College HUNKS is a professional brand that they can trust.
