College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving Expands Into Colorado Springs

Retiring Army Veteran Opening Fast-Growing Moving and Junk Removal Franchise

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - (Marketwired - April 04, 2016) - College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving , which has been featured on "Blue Collar Millionaire," "Shark Tank," and other primetime shows, is coming to Colorado Springs. The moving and junk removal franchise is headed up by Keven Elwood, an Army Master Sergeant who spent most of his 20-year military career keeping Chinook, Apache and Blackhawk helicopters in shape. After 17 deployments to places like Afghanistan, Iraq and the Philippines, he is ready to settle down in a position that will still allow him to lead and train a team of energetic young adults.

"The culture is impossible to beat. They really focus on their employees," he said. "The 'Building Leaders' concept (one of College Hunks' Core Values) is extraordinary. I've spent my entire adult life building young people into great Americans in the military, and I believe that College Hunks can also build great leaders. And that's what really drove me to make sure I was going to buy a College Hunks franchise."

Elwood says College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving sets itself apart by offering friendly, courteous and thoughtful service to customers, and by maintaining professionalism , traits that people don't tend to associate with junk-haulers or movers.

"Nobody wants a guy in a tank top and smelling like three day-old garbage showing up at their house and moving their belongings," Elwood said. "They want somebody professional. I think the industry has to come around to the College Hunks way of life."

College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving is the fastest-growing junk removal franchise and moving franchise in America. The company has made "Entrepreneur" magazine's list of top franchise opportunities for six years in a row and continues its nationwide expansion by bringing professionalism and sophisticated marketing to an industry that is in constant demand.

"We're thrilled to help Keven get his new business started," College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving co-founder and CEO Omar Soliman said. "He's demonstrated outstanding leadership skills and commitment serving our country, and mastering our business is a whole lot easier than the work he's used to. There are a lot of franchise companies that would love to have a guy like Keven open their business, and we're proud that he chose us."

Elwood said he's eager to work with other soldiers who are looking for their next step. College Hunks looks for high-energy team players to be part of the business, and "the candidates I'm looking for are coming to me in the form of soldiers getting out of the military, transitioning into college in the fall," Elwood said. "My main customers are primarily working individuals, professionals. They want clean-cut, organized employees showing up to their house. They don't want to be concerned about who is in their house."
