WICHITA, Kan., January 28, 2020 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – In a world where trash cleaning is often viewed as a nasty endeavor, a brand is determined to transform the process into a positive, customer-friendly experience. 1-800-JUNKPRO, an up-and-coming family-owned franchise company, offers not only the characteristic friendly customer service but also the disposal of garbage and the rental of garbage containers $ 50 billion Garbage disposal industry. 1-800-JUNKPRO currently has five locations in Illinois, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri and Oklahoma, with a sixth place to open Austin The brand is looking for new franchisees who can grow in the major metropolitan areas The United States, especially in the Texas Markets of Dallas, Houston and San Antonioand would like to add at least six more locations in 2020.
1-800-JUNKPRO has its start in Wichita in 1999, as CEO and President Mike Davis and his wife, Misty, the company’s CFO (or chief fun officer, whichever she prefers) started a garbage disposal company called the Better Hauling Company to generate extra income. They started out with just a pickup truck and trailer, and by 2007 Mike had quit his company job and devoted himself to business. In 2007, the Davises took the next step in their business, hiring a local manufacturer to customize a truck to improve the brand’s ability to serve customers. Three years later, the Davises renamed the company 1-800-JUNKPRO and awarded the first franchise in 2016 Kansas City. Today 1-800-JUNKPRO, with its five locations, removes more than 350,000 pounds of trash a week and plans to expand nationwide.
1-800-JUNKPRO stands out from the competition in several ways. On the one hand, 1-800-JUNKPRO franchisees benefit from a simple business model with two different investment options: the Small Market Franchise with an area population of less than 500,000 and an initial investment of $ 73,850 to $ 206,099 and the Standard Market Franchise with an area population of 500,000 or more and an initial investment of $ 117,950 to $ 217,200. A single person can operate a small market franchise, while larger areas only require four to 10 people. The brand also offers garbage disposal and dumpster rental. This means customers can work with the same trusted brand when they need both services, and franchisees benefit from more than one source of income. In addition, 1-800-JUNKPRO offers an environmentally friendly business opportunity as the business partners work with companies and organizations that help recycle and donate a large percentage of items that customers no longer need or want. If an item cannot be donated or recycled, it will be disposed of responsibly.
The story goes on
“The need for garbage disposal services will never go away” Mike Davis said. “People will always throw things away and get rid of old things. When the economy is good, people remodel their houses – which leads to rubble to get rid of, and people buy new things – which leads to a need to help in bad times we humans downsize and get hired by banks for foreclosure. When the recession hit and hurt many other types of businesses, our business was fueled from a different angle because customers had foreclosures and needed help. Many brands are marketing themselves as recession-proof. 1- 800-JUNKPRO is as recession-proof as possible. “
Once a franchisee signs up with 1-800-JUNKPRO, they benefit from a robust corporate support system that sets them up for success prior to opening and on an ongoing basis. Before the franchisee opens, the company team invites the franchisee to head office for additional training and support. In addition, 1-800-JUNKPRO has a proprietary technology platform, JunkConnect, which helps streamline business operations by allowing franchisees to send orders and perform inventory management, and customers to book appointments. JunkConnect also ensures there is no double booking of dumpsters or trucks, making life even more seamless for franchisees.
What sets 1-800-JUNKPRO apart from the competition is above all the focus on warm and friendly customer service in an industry in which such behavior is normally not observed. Here, 1-800-JUNKPRO franchisees have the opportunity to stand out in their markets.
“Our industry is full of grumpy people,” said Davis. “When you contact customer service, you usually have a grumpy person on the other end of the line. Here at 1-800-JUNKPRO we are very focused on customer service. This has done us more business than anything else. Our team knows about it The first day we’re not in the garbage handling business, we are in the customer service business and it is our mission to provide the best customer service on the planet. “
1-800-JUNKPRO is committed to working with franchisees with prior management experience who are growth minded and wish to be an active owner. Franchisees should also pass what Davis calls “The Cornhole Test”.
“If a potential franchisee is a little open and easy to talk to, like you would at a cornhole game with a friend, then that is a strong indicator that they are a good culture for 1-800-JUNKPRO” Said Davis. “This is really important to us. A fun personality, solid business background, and willingness to follow our proven system is exactly what we are looking for.”
