Average revenues are on a steep upward trajectory

Revenue growth for college hunks franchise owners

College Hunks Hauling Junk franchisees enjoy strong and growing revenues. From 2011 to 2013, our average franchisee revenue increased 42.6%, reaching $442,504. That average includes people who are offering junk hauling only, as well as franchisees who are offering both junk-hauling and moving services. If you look only at the franchisees who offer both services, the average revenue for 2013 shoots up to $543,244.

college hunks franchise for saleCollege Hunks, which offers both a junk-hauling concept and a moving company concept, encourages new franchisees to offer both services because they dovetail so well. Junk hauling often immediately precedes or follows a move, so people who need one service often need the other, too. By offering both services, you can be more useful to customers, generate higher levels of repeat business and discover additional work during the regular course of serving customers.


Jim DelVecchio, who owns the College Hunks franchise in Columbus, Ohio, says his sales have more than met his expectations since he started his franchise in 2011. Actually they have been “exceeding them in a pretty big way. April 2014 was up 100% compared to a year ago, so we are pretty excited.”


The charts below outline the average financial performance of our franchisees, and it is taken from the Item 19 section of our Franchise Disclosure Document. A chart is also provided outlining the performance of our two corporate-owned locations — our original business in Washington, D.C., and our business in Tampa. We believe these charts, taken together, provide some insight into our franchisee performance, revenue growth, as well as what is possible within our business model. The franchisee numbers, however, are averages and do not indicate how any individual business will perform.
