College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving Enters Seattle Market

A Growing City and Suburbs Presents a Prime Opportunity to Introduce the Fast-Growing Brand and Its Services to the Pacific Northwest

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) - College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving has opened its first franchise operation in the state of Washington.

"Seattle is a very competitive market for professional junk removal and moving, but what sets us apart from the other competitors is our simple, back-to-basics approach to creating a unique and satisfying engagement with our clients," says Colin Wiggins, who co-owns the franchise with business partner Kelly Milbrandt.

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 five years in a row and continues its nationwide expansion by bringing professionalism and sophisticated marketing to an industry that is in constant demand.

Wiggins and Milbrandt have strong entrepreneurial backgrounds. Milbrandt's family owns Milbrandt Vineyards Winery, where she has served as Brand Ambassador, and she also is a former Certified Public Accountant. Wiggins has managed multi-unit operations for various companies in the U.S., Canada and Europe, and he is the owner a large early childhood learning center in Seattle that was established 2006.

"We love working with people who are moving into business ownership for the first time, but we also like the vote of confidence seasoned entrepreneurs give us when they join our team," said Omar Soliman, president and co-founder of College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving. "Colin and Kelly have amazing, and very diverse, backgrounds. The fact that they believe College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving can succeed in Seattle and Bellevue says volumes."

Although it is new to Washington State, College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving enjoys explosive growth in many other states and within the markets it already covers. The brand has become nationally known thanks to ongoing appearances in print and media by Soliman and co-founder Nick Friedman. In fact, that is how the Seattle operation came into being.

"Our introduction to CHHJ started with our addiction to NBC's Shark Tank," Wiggins says. "Then we saw a repeat of Nick and Omar's episode on CNBC, which was soon followed by their appearance on Pitch, and then on our other vice, HGTV's House Hunters, all within seven days. The rest is history."

Early on the Seattle team is finding success, which shows that College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving's many service differentiators can lead to success even in a crowded market.

"We're not surprised that Colin and Kelly have hit the ground running," Soliman said. "As we talk to people in other markets, we point to them, and to our other franchises in large metro markets, to showcase just how well our brand can do against very solid competition."
