January 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // STAMFORD, Conn. – The Junkluggers, the leading eco-friendly junk removal franchise, cleaned up in 2016 by doubling its national footprint with the addition of six franchise locations.
The Junkluggers expanded into new markets including Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Kansas City, Philadelphia, and Raleigh-Durham. The company plans to open as many as 15 locations in 2017, specifically targeting prospects in Massachusetts, California, Texas, Illinois, Colorado, Florida, and Virginia.
This rapid expansion allowed Junkluggers to complete over 16,000 jobs that resulted in over 32 million pounds of junk removed system-wide. The company also recycled or donated over 19 million pounds of unwanted items to various local charities and organizations. Junkluggers currently has more than 130 employees that operate 46 trucks.
“I am thrilled with the successful year we had, and am excited to continue our growth in new markets across the nation,” said Josh Cohen, founder and CEO of Junkluggers. “Being eco-friendly isn’t just a buzzword for us; we truly care about the environment and we practice what we preach every day. As we continue to expand, our goal by 2020 is to donate and recycle 100 percent of all items we remove.”
Additionally, Junkluggers has seen growth with the moving side of the company, Luggers Moving, which the company opened in response to a number of customers inquiring about moving services. In 2016 alone, Luggers Moving performed nearly 500 moving jobs.
Founded in 2004, by then 21-year old Cohen, The Junkluggers offers full-service junk removal for homes and businesses including offices, retail locations, construction sites, and more. Aside from select hazardous materials, Junkluggers can lug away just about anything, from furniture and appliances to electronics and concrete, among other items.

When an item is donated on a customer’s behalf, Junkluggers will provide a tax-deductible receipt within 14 business days.
