College Hunks offers ideal franchise for veterans with VetFran incentive
The combination of a foolproof business model and special discounts makes College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving attractive to veterans
College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving has proven to be an ideal franchise for veterans. The experience veterans have gained through their service translates extremely well to franchise ownership. Beyond that, qualified military veterans are eligible to receive a $5,000 discount off of the initial franchise fee, making our franchise system an attractive option.
Much like military service, owning a franchise requires dedication, attention to detail and a meticulous execution of the franchise system, as well as the ability to assemble, motivate and lead a team. This is why so many of our franchisees have military backgrounds.
College Hunks owners James Mann, a veteran, and his son Laurence were pleasantly surprised that our franchise system, according to Laurence, “lives its values, because so many companies seem to only pay lip-service to that concept these days. To see the company and see they really do embrace their values on a day-to-day basis and they really want you to grow as a franchise owner, and really want your employees to grow as well on a day-to-day basis — it was just amazing, and it was something I wanted to be a part of.”
When asked about what made College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving right for him, Retired Army Master Sergeant Keven Elwood said, “Simply, the energy level. The culture is impossible to beat. They really focus on their employees. The Building Leaders concept 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 buy a College Hunks franchise.”
Iraq War veteran Carl Carter, who owns the College Hunks of Jackson, MS, liked the opportunity to instill leadership qualities in the young people he coaches every day. “One of our core values is building leaders, and hopefully my guys will learn how to run a business,” he says. “How they behave and the attitude they project impacts their career and their lives.”
Nick Friedman, co-founder and President of College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving, adds, “Veterans exemplify everything that we value in our own business, and in the people that we bring on board as franchise owners.
