The Anti-Office: Start a Junk Removal Business and Stand Out in More Ways than One
The Junkluggers stands apart from other franchises. The corporate team is business savvy, energetic, and always ready to celebrate. Sometimes, that means handing out Starbucks gift cards to employees who have made a customer particularly happy. Other times, it means putting work aside, turning on the karaoke machine, and belting out a few songs together. “Stress less,” and “The team that plays together stays together,” are pretty good representations of the Junkluggers mindset.
The Junkluggers culture might be casual, with a jeans-and-t-shirt dress code, but don’t mistake the laid back attire as a lack of motivation. Every team member is fanatically focused on a job well done, and one of CEO Josh Cohen’s favorite sayings is, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” In other words, work hard, have fun, and make sure you’re helping your team members be the very best they can be along the way.
SUSTAINABILITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
If the Millennial generation’s values could be summed up in four words, they very well may be “sustainability and the environment.” The Junkluggers is one of the only junk hauling services with a focus on the environment, striving to donate, recycle, or reuse as much of the items hauled away as possible. One Junkluggers franchisee alone has donated enough furniture to fill 48 three-bedroom houses and has recycled over 60 tons of material. While it may be easier to simply throw everything in a truck and dump it into the nearest landfill, Junkluggers goes the extra mile to help the community and environment.
DIVERSITY OF IDEAS AND EXPERIENCE
Junkluggers welcomes franchisees from all walks of life from Veterans, CPAs ready to escape their cubicles, and Boomers looking for the next exciting chapter in their not-so-quiet retirement. While our backgrounds and life experiences may be vastly different, we all share a common goal and common values: dedication, a commitment to the environment, and a desire to exceed our own expectations drive each and every one of us. We pull from our different perspectives and backgrounds to find the best solutions to our business challenges. Always together, and always as a team.
ANY REASON TO CELEBRATE
We’ll own up to this stereotype: we’re a Millennial-founded company, and we love to kick back and celebrate after hard work. Whether it’s Halloween, New Years, or someone’s birthday, we look for just about any excuse to take a break.
While our backgrounds and life experiences may be vastly different, we all share a common goal and common values: dedication, a commitment to the environment, and a desire to exceed our own expectations drive each and every one of us.
We work hard to take care of our customers, our environment, and our community, and we relish the time that we spend with our coworkers and their families playing games, having fun, and enjoying each others’ company.
Ever accessible, CEO Josh Cohen can often be found right alongside his franchisees and their teams, singing karaoke, playing table tennis, or doing the Macarena at the company Halloween party (in costume!) Josh understands that giving his team time to unwind prevents fatigue and burnout, which are two factors that contribute the most to customer and franchisee dissatisfaction. Enjoying fun downtime activities with coworkers also helps to promote camaraderie and trust within the team, meaning that everybody works together more easily and the job gets done just a little better.
Many companies and executives claim to support and care about their franchisees as individuals. Not many franchisees have their CEO’s personal cell phone on speed dial. Junkluggers may stand out in the junk removal business with its blinding green trucks and above-and-beyond professionalism and service, but we stand out as a franchise opportunity with unparalleled support and accessibility. If you’re a hard-working, results-driven environment advocate who loves to have fun, we’re looking for you to join the team!
