Junk King to Open Latonia Location
A garbage disposal company will open its first Northern Kentucky location in Covington.
A Junk King franchise will occupy the space at 609 Union Street in Latonia.
Owner Jack Brendamour will now have a total of four franchise locations, with more in Cincinnati, Louisville and Dayton, Oh.
He said expanding into northern Kentucky will help reduce the company’s carbon footprint and open up more opportunities for charitable initiatives. He has partners with dozens of nonprofits that receive donations from materials collected from garbage collection work, he said.
“By bringing Junk King’s services to Northern Kentucky, we can reduce the energy our trucks use to drive to and from workplaces. And we can continue the recycle and repurpose mentality that other communities in Kentucky and Ohio have come to know us for, ”said Brendamour. “Our team makes return a priority and we are committed to providing a great garbage disposal service in Covington.”
Junk King focuses on environmentally friendly recycling and cutting edge technology so customers can schedule a pickup in real time.
“Jack made it clear that he is passionate and dedicated to making a difference with Junk King,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO and co-founder of Junk King Franchise Systems. “His enthusiasm for expanding into northern Kentucky is a testament to his leadership and business acumen.”
Unlike most other junk disposal services, Junk King pricing is based on the amount of junk removed, the company said. The brand’s trucks are twenty percent larger than the industry average. In northern Kentucky, up to 100% of items removed from a yard, home, or business are donated or recycled instead of being landed in a landfill.
Junk King was founded in 2005 in California by two friends in a two-car garage. It started franchise in 2010.
