Why The Junkluggers?
It’s time to break free from the cubicle. Franchising is an ideal alternative to a long career of gray walls and buzzword-saturated meetings. And Junkluggers is a franchise created for and perfectly suited for the new generation of business owners.
We wouldn’t want to hire potential franchisees who didn’t have a few questions before jumping into a commitment like this. So here are some answers to a few questions that may be on your mind.
Junk removal is a $1.4 billion industry, and it’s not going away anytime soon. In fact, junk removal is one of a handful of industries with a steady projected growth rate of 5% year over year through 2020. With those kinds of numbers, you have a chance to change the world: literally. At such a massive scale, eco-friendly junk disposal keeps untold tons of junk out of landfills.
We’ve been in business since 2004, and our brand is one of the most respected and trusted in the industry. We know the ins and outs of the industry, sure, but we’re also on a mission to change it. We hope to make eco-friendly junk removal the industry standard, not the exception.
You’ll also have unprecedented access to expert advice and guidance from your leadership. As part of the team, Junkluggers CEO Josh Cohen is so adamant about helping his franchise owners be successful that he is never more than just a text message away (or a phone call, for the non-Millennials). Best of all, you’ll have access to a terrific support system of other franchisees, advisors, and staff to help set up your business for success:
Dedicated franchise coach. You will be assigned one point person who will help you navigate our business, your franchise process, and the industry.
Marketing support. We know who our customers are and how to find them. We help to design, plan and track the success of your digital and print marketing campaigns, offering advice on how to best allocate your marketing budget. We maintain and regularly update company websites and social media outlets, allowing you to be found at the top of search engines and look attractive to future customers.
Sales and finance training. You’ll receive hands-on training and support for building and maintaining relationships with key referral sources. We also keep a full-time, highly experienced finance manager on staff to help you set up and manage your finances.
Training. We offer an initial two-day orientation, a week by week checklist to get you up and running, and an additional one week of classroom and in the field training. You’ll have the confidence to run your business successfully from day one.
Okay, so it’s a little more complex than that, but not much. Here’s what we’ll help provide when you become a Junkluggers franchise owner:
Junkluggers Truck. You really can’t miss these. Our neon green trucks are easily recognizable and fully customized to cater to the needs of the junk removal industry. Through a strong relationship with our truck vendors, we also ensure competitive pricing and on time delivery so you can get started on schedule.
Centralized Call Center. We have a team of friendly, reliable and well-trained representatives managed in house that is there to answer calls and schedule appointments 7 days a week. This frees you to focus on daily operations and growing the business without having to be on call yourself.
Web-based Proprietary Software System. Our powerful web-based software allows you to conveniently track, manage, and analyze all aspects of the business from any location with an internet connection.
