Military Veteran-Focused Franchise JDog Junk Removal Sets Stage for National Growth
Strategic Partnership with Private Equity Firm Provides Capital Infusion, Management Support
WAYNE, Pa. - July 29, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - JDog Junk Removal, a full-service junk removal franchise offered exclusively to armed service veterans, active-duty members of the United States Military, and their family members, is expanding nationwide offering business ownership and employment opportunities for thousands of military veterans.
The company is the only U.S. franchise business devoted solely to military veterans and their families. JDog Junk Removal recently entered into a strategic partnership with Julip Run Capital, LLC, a Philadelphia-based private equity firm, to support the capital needs of the business and to help manage growth.
"We liken our business to a 'movement' among military personnel and their families who are seeking sustainable income opportunities as they transition into civilian life. This movement appeals to veterans who prefer to be entrepreneurs, where they can operate according to a proven business manual and maintain an active, flexible work schedule," said Flanagan. "The foundation of the movement is built upon the core values of respect, integrity and trust – values veterans and their families relate to."
JDog Junk Removal began franchising in 2012 and has four operating franchise locations in Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan and Texas. Additional franchise operations will be opening in the next few months in Tennessee and Missouri. JDog Management intends to leverage its capital base and upgraded management infrastructure to open locations in most major metro markets over the next five years.
Owning a JDog Junk Removal franchise is relatively affordable and can be purchased starting at $27,900, which includes the initial franchise fee and a protected territory. Ongoing franchise royalties are based on fixed monthly royalties, not based on a percentage of revenue like most other franchise brands, so franchisees realize all the benefit of growing their business. JDog will donate 10 percent of the company's net income annually to veteran-related causes, which will be designated by individual franchisees.
