We’re excited and proud to be celebrating a huge milestone with our franchisees: College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving® now has more than 100 franchise owners across 250 territories! Better still, our franchisees are enjoying growing revenues and increased brand awareness with consumers. As one of the fastest-growing franchises in the country, now is a perfect time for budding entrepreneurs to explore College Hunks.

Systems focused on franchisee growth

College Hunks is on a rapid rise. Just look at the facts:

With many other business opportunities, the owner may get bogged down with tedious paperwork or performing the duties of the business themselves. But at College Hunks, everything we do has an eye toward helping our franchisees run efficient and scalable businesses, leaving less busywork to distract them from achieving their ambitions.

We offer dedicated support, like our national call center to handle incoming calls and follow-ups for each location, and we’re always refining our systems to help the business run better for franchisees. Our franchise owners don’t have to move boxes themselves or hire a bunch of administrative or sales staff; instead, they get to focus on marketing to their communities, developing their team members into leaders and achieving stronger revenues and profit margins.

A brand that stands out

We attract a lot of attention thanks to our clever branding and smart, targeted marketing tactics that help our franchisees attract more business. Our marketing campaigns have won awards, and the detailed Marketing Gameplan we provide helps our franchisees decide on the best methods to reach local audiences, plan budgets for ad spend and measure ROI to make sure money is spent as effectively as possible.

We also have a real knack for attracting media attention that increases brand awareness. From being featured on the very first episode of the hit show Shark Tank to a continued presence in national and local media like Fox Business Network, Inc magazine and the Tampa Bay Business Journal, we help strengthen our brand’s position as a leader in the moving and junk removal industries.

Excellent client service has been a key component of our growth from the beginning.

Setting new standards in moving and junk removal

The name “College Hunks” not only helps make us more memorable than a lot of our competitors, it’s also emblematic of the service our franchisees strive to provide. “H.U.N.K.S.” is also an acronym standing for “Honest, Uniformed, Nice, Knowledgeable, Service.”

That kind of service pays off for owners and is a major reason why we’re one of the fastest-growing franchises. Clients want to know they can trust the people who are handling their stuff. We recently scored higher on customer satisfaction than beloved brands like Amazon, Apple and Costco, which contributes to strong word-of-mouth and referral business. When a client experiences exceptional service, they’re eager to spread the love and let friends and family know about a great brand.

“Trust and care are paramount aspects of our brand promise, and our franchise owners, team members and clients all believe in continuing to elevate our client experience as we build our own iconic service brand together,” says President and Co-Founder Nick Friedman.
