Junk Hauling Franchise Hits 33rd Straight Month of Same-Unit Sales Growth

The Fast-Growing College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving Franchise Has Seen a Steady Increase in Average Franchise Revenue

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 26, 2014) - College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving is on a hot streak, with 33 straight months of average same-unit sales growth. The sales growth continues a long trend for the junk removal franchise, which saw its average franchise revenue climb 42.6% from 2011 to 2013.

"Tens of millions of Americans move every year, and when they move, they often need junk hauling, too. Since we offer junk hauling and moving, our franchisees have a lot of opportunities to serve customers," said co-founder and President Nick Friedman. "Our franchise has been able to grow rapidly by grabbing market share. We do it by taking the stress out of moving and replacing it with a fun, friendly and professional experience."

For such a young franchise, College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving has built an impressive brand. The company has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, ABC's Shark Tank, HGTV's House Hunters, AMC's The Pitch and Fox Business, as well as in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Inc. and more. Part of the attraction comes from the franchise's catchy name, but that "sticks-in-your-brain" name is complemented by an award-winning marketing plan that has helped franchisees quickly establish themselves in their communities.

Franchisees have room to grow. The brand is young -- the flagship operation in Washington, D.C., got started in 2005, and College Hunks started offering its junk-hauling franchise in 2007. Seven years later, the brand has locations nationwide, and average revenue for the still-young franchise locations was $442,504 in 2013. The original business in D.C. illustrates the growth potential -- its revenue eclipsed $2.2 million in 2013, up $400,000 from the year before. Start-up costs range from $95,000 to $207,950.

The emerging growth of the franchise system creates opportunity for new franchisees, Friedman said: "Most of our franchise competitors are sold out or are offering very limited territory sizes. While we have doubled in size in the past two years, we still have prime territories available for now, so it's a great time to get started."
