No, most of us don’t. But rest assured, we will provide you with the proven systems and all the necessary training you’ll need to open your Junkluggers franchise, hire staff and develop strong customer relationships.
The Junkluggers has established a proven marketing system, with a detailed website and corporate call center available to answer the calls while you serve customers each day. As a Junkluggers franchisee, you will have your local information on our master website where you will be able to attract customers with areas serviced and share in the benefits of the online presence we have already established. We will help you establish a grand opening marketing plan, provide support in generating public relations buzz and work with your local advertising outlets which will help your Junkluggers business be seen by potential customers.
The franchise fee is $35,000. Included in the fee is an exclusive territory, which will be established, based on the local region. Your territory is based on a population of up to 400,000 people and is based upon zip codes. Within that exclusive territory, you will have the rights to use the Junkluggers brand name, operating systems, logo, trade dress, comprehensive training program and ongoing support.
You will be required to pay royalties at a rate of 7%. When you achieve certain sales performance criteria this percentage will be reduced. You will pay a 5% Customer Loyalty Center fee and you are also required to pay a 1% fee to support a brand development fund. All fees are paid weekly and are based on Gross Sales but exclude sales tax assessed by local agencies.
We require a minimum of $200,000 net worth and $75,000 in liquid capital.
Yes. While Junkluggers Franchising does not currently offer financing directly, we have third party relationships that can help qualified franchisees obtain the funds needed for vehicles and in some cases, start up costs including initial marketing campaigns.
You will need to have two dump trucks that match our vehicle profile. We also recommend a sales vehicle that can handle smaller jobs and junk that can be recycled, like furniture, lamps, home accessories or other materials. This could be a pick up truck or mini-van, but don’t worry, we’ll work with you and your personality to make sure you have the right type of sales vehicle.
No, we do not require you to have a professional office location, but you will need a quiet, dedicated place to keep records, house your computer and manage the business finances and customer follow up.
We currently use an end-to-end hiring management system that helps to qualify candidates in an established framework. We provide all of the material you need to find candidates through a proven network of job placement sites and our suggested hiring process can be used as a guide to help you screen and ask the right questions to find qualified candidates for the job.
The Junkluggers strives to be the most environmentally friendly, community oriented, employee and customer centric company in our industry. We will be a $100 million company with at least 100 franchise partners by 2024. We will expand on revenue streams that have synergy with our core business model. We will be a national household name, providing unquestionable value to our customers and franchise partners.
We measure our territories in terms of population. A single territory is a population of 500,000 people. You may apply for additional territories above the minimum. Once we have identified an area you are interested in, we will do a deep analysis to confirm the territory meets our demographic guidelines for a target market.
You can be up and running in as little as 8-12 weeks. No real estate required!
The investment to purchase a single territory of 500,000 people is $45,000. Please see our Financial Requirements page for a complete investment range. 
Schedule your first call with our franchise developer to start the qualification process.
