University of Miami Grads Continue College Hunks Hauling Junk Legacy

Alum open College Hunks Hauling Junk and College Hunk Moving Franchises in Founding City

Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 11, 2013 - Two University of Miami alumni are following in the footsteps of the College Hunks Hauling Junk founders, opening a franchise in Miami 10 years after the franchise network was born there.

Christopher Poore and Ron Rick graduated from the University of Miami in 2012 with degrees in Entrepreneurship. As part of an Entrepreneurial Consulting class, the duo spent a semester studying College Hunks Hauling Junk to determine the viability of a Miami-based franchise.

“After countless hours of research, we decided that the Miami location was more than viable, and we jumped in with both feet,” said Christopher.

Poore and Rick’s entrepreneurial jump mirrors the company’s founding a decade ago. In 2003, founder and CEO Omar Soliman, while a senior at the University of Miami, submitted his business plan for College Hunks Hauling Junk to the University’s business plan competition. Omar won first place and $10,000 for his business concept. He went on to found College Hunks Hauling Junk with long-time friend Nick Friedman and a cargo van he borrowed from his mother.

What started with two college guys trying to earn extra money has grown into a junk removal and moving company with a national presence. Miami is the 46th franchise in College Hunks Hauling Junk’s network and the fifth location in Florida.

Christopher and Ron will continue the company’s tradition of hiring college students, doing their part to make College Hunks Hauling Junk’s vision a reality. “We hope to be the number-one employer of college students,” explained Christopher. And, they’re already putting miles on the company’s signature orange and green trucks.

“Miami will always hold a special place in our heart,” said Omar Soliman, Co-founder and CEO. “Now with a franchise operating out of the area, we can once again call it home.” The Miami location’s grand opening is April 11 and will be attended by both founders and C.J., the official mascot of College Hunks Hauling Junk.
