SAN FRANCISCO –Junk King, the nation’s leading junk removal franchise, announced today that the brand has opened its 75th location.
The launch of the new territory, which is in Fort Collins, Colorado, marks a milestone moment for the franchise, as the company works towards its extensive growth initiative aimed to increase the brand’s presence by 125 franchises and 400 units in the next five years.
“Big things are happening for Junk King. We’re accelerating past our competitors and we’re not turning back,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO of Junk King Franchise Systems. “Our success reflects the quality of our franchisees and the strength of our business model—a dynamic mix of state-of-the-art technology systems and advanced recycling programs that help drive the brand’s expansion into new markets throughout the United States.”
Wielding the power, processes and systems to maximize profitability, Junk King has become a force in the junk removal service industry. It has successfully established itself as the premier franchise amid a fragmented industry riddled with unprofessionalism. In fact, Junk King maintains the highest Net Promoter Score (NPS) for any service business in North America, a clear indication of the importance the company places on customer satisfaction.
“The proven systems and processes we have in place are collectively moving our entire company forward,” said Andreacchi. “Our franchisees are motivated by our business model because of its high-profit margins, multiple revenue streams and the stability of the junk removal market.”
Junk King is committed to growing the company’s presence throughout key markets in North America. Recently, the company has launched services in Sacramento, Portland and Fort Collins. Looking ahead to the end of 2016, Junk King will be opening in Manhattan, the San Fernando Valley and Halifax, Canada.
There are many attributes of the Junk King business model that attract franchisees from all backgrounds and educations, such as the company’s commitment to “green” junk removal. Junk King recycles, reuses and repurposes paper, metal, e-waste, household goods, textiles, small and large appliances, toys, books, furniture and more. The brand establishes local, regional, national and even international recycling partnerships based on territory. Franchise partners are required to lease a large warehouse facility for managing the sorting of materials. They must also learn to pack the truck so materials can be safely unpacked and reused.
A key differentiator of Junk King is the brand’s unique software program Junk Netware, Junk King’s franchise partners, call center and corporate headquarters can manage the business from a single source and from any web-enabled device. This exclusive service allows franchisees to better monitor business profitability, daily operations and service reviews.
The concept appeals to entrepreneurs transitioning into business ownership from corporate backgrounds in sales, operations and management. Franchise candidates are attracted to the brand’s business model because of its high-profit margins, multiple revenue streams and the stability of the junk removal market.
Ideal franchise candidates are high-energy and willing to learn with a desire to adopt Junk King’s processes and systems. Junk King provides each other with a king-sized truck, known for being the largest in the industry, and an expansive territory, as well as ongoing training, marketing, operations and sales support.
After achieving a 45 percent year-over-year growth rate in the past two years, Junk King’s processes and systems are firmly established, fostering even greater market expansion in the months ahead.
