June 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // TUCSON, AZ - College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk and Moving - which has been featured on "Blue Collar Millionaire," "Shark Tank," and other primetime shows - has expanded into Tucson. The company provides local moving, junk removal, donation pickups and more.
Chris Gembis will lead the H.U.N.K.S. team. (H.U.N.K.S. stands for Honest, Uniformed, Nice, Knowledgeable Service.) A former automotive executive who relocated from Detroit to Tucson several years ago, he also co-owns Cactus Cleaning Crew with his wife, Sandra. Between the two businesses, he hopes to completely remove the stress from moving.
Gembis' College H.U.N.K.S. business is located at 3821 N Oracle Road and serves customers north to Casa Grande, south to Green Valley, and east to Vail.
Gembis says College H.U.N.K.S. is making a name for itself (average franchisee sales increased 51% in 2015 compared to 2014) thanks to its commitment to customer service, branding, professionalism and leadership. One of the company's core values is Building Leaders by teaching employees comprehensive business skills - marketing, accounting, management, and customer service skills - so they are equipped with professional skills they can use to open their own businesses.
"I know that when I was the age of most of my employees, if I hadn't run into a mentor of my own, I could have taken some wrong turns and not developed the professionalism that has helped me be successful," he says. "I've already attracted employees who are looking to learn the top-to-bottom aspects of entrepreneurialism, and that attitude is one of the keys to the 'WOW' customer service we are able to provide."
The desire to mentor leaders and aggressively grow a new market is why College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk and Moving awarded Gembis the rights to the franchise in Tucson.
"We are very aggressive when it comes to growth, but we want to do it the right way," he explained. "That means, first and foremost, finding the right franchise partner. We only want to work with people who are enthusiastic about what we've build as a company, and who believe in our mantra of 'move the world.' Chris and his team live and breathe our core values, and clients are going to be blown away by the level of service they receive."
