TAMPA, FL - (Marketwired - Feb 3, 2015) - College Hunks Hauling Junk has made the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list for the fifth year in a row.
The list, an indispensable guide for current and potential franchise owners, recognized College Hunks Hauling Junk for its training, sales and marketing support, and for its reasonable startup costs. None of this is a surprise to Nick Friedman, president and co-founder, who has seen the company grow from a single truck in the Washington, D.C., area in 2005 to over 50 franchise owners operating 144 successful franchise zones by 2014.
"We are pleased to make the Entrepreneur list again, and it supports what we have been striving for since the beginning," Friedman said. "College Hunks Hauling Junk is a viable and credible junk removal franchise and moving franchise opportunity, and our franchise owners are valued and trusted service providers in their communities. Because of that we continue to be recognized year in and year out by these authorities in the franchise marketplace."
Franchise owners benefit from training and sales support that includes a robust Sales Loyalty Center using proprietary software for inquiries and lead generation, as well as on-the-ground marketing and sales coaching. Those efforts support owners by enabling them to spend more time working to attract customers.
"Our franchise owners know they have full back-office support, so they are able to go to community events and other public forums to promote their hauling and moving services," Friedman said. "It all combines to produce an ongoing, diverse stream of leads they can use to grow their business."
As the U.S. economy rebounds, more people are looking to do everything from trade up in house size to buy new furniture. That means they need both moving and junk removal services, and so College Hunks is now a better opportunity than ever for entrepreneurs looking to open their own businesses. And because a College Hunks Hauling Junk franchise can be opened for as little as $95,000 (with a $5,000 discount for veterans), it's an affordable opportunity.
