One Country’s Junk Is Another’s Franchise Kingdom. | One Country’s Junk Is Another’s Franchise Kingdom. Junk King seeks to collect huge market share in booming junk removal industry

San Carlos, Cal. – Remove all the clutter of the past year’s economic mess and it’s clear that junk removal is among the few service franchises that survived the turmoil unscathed. 

Despite the economic downturn, junk removal franchise, Junk King has experienced a steady increase in profits. Company executives attribute the growth to former do-it-yourselfers who would rather hire professionals than risk injury from lifting heavy items or damaging walls and floors when moving.

Junk King’s growing network of franchises is “cleaning house” in the multi-billion dollar junk removal and hauling industry where millions of people are constantly looking for dependable service to clear clutter and unwanted items from their homes and businesses. Focusing on superior service and attention to detail, Junk King boasts nine locations throughout the San Francisco Bay area, with company plans calling for an additional 10 franchises throughout California and 35-50 nationwide by the end of 2012.

“Everyone has clutter and unwanted items, but few have the time or ability to dispose of it properly,” said Michael Andreacchi, Co-Founder of Junk King. “Whether residential customers with two incomes and little time to clean out their garage or a single mother in need of turning an unused storage room into a home office, there is a demand for the service Junk King provides.”

Founded in 2005 by childhood friends Michael Andreacchi and Brian Reardon, Junk King has redefined junk removal by putting the focus on superior service and attention. With trucks that are 20 percent bigger than most other junk removal companies, the burgeoning franchise works with homeowners, realtors, property managers, and business owners in meeting their junk hauling needs, removing everything from old furniture and appliances to yard waste and garden refuse, fencing and lumber to tires and automotive parts. Customers simply point to what needs to be removed and Junk King loads it onto the truck, sweeps the area clean and drives away.

“We’ve succeeded where others have failed because we pay attention to detail,” added Reardon. “We want a lasting relationship with our customers by exceeding their expectations and gaining their trust through excellent performance.”

Junk King is also passionate about the environment and proud of its reputation as an advocate for residential and commercial recycling. Junk King recycles up to 60 percent of what they pick up, saving tons of waste from local landfills each year.

To augment the company’s growth, Junk King is currently seeking single and multi-unit franchisees with a strong desire to develop an emerging concept in a high-growth industry. With a franchise fee of $25,000, the total investment to own and operate a Junk King franchise in an exclusive territory is $100,000.

Franchisees are guaranteed first-year revenues of $125,000 or their money back. “If our franchisees do not achieve a minimum revenue goal of $125,000 in their first 12 months of business, we will refund 100 percent of their franchise fee and allow them to return their franchise,” Andreacchi said.

Founded in 2005, Junk King has become America’s fastest-growing, full-service junk removal franchise concept, meeting the demand for affordable and dependable service to clear clutter and unwanted items from homes and businesses. With nine locations currently opened and operating nationwide, Junk King is filling a niche in local marketplaces across the U.S. and has announced plans to grow nationwide with 35-50 service locations by the end of 2012.  Headquartered in San Carlos, CA, Junk King’s rates are guaranteed to beat the competitions with 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
