STAMFORD, CT, January 24, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sustainable junk-removal service The Junkluggers recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500®, the world's first comprehensive franchise ranking. The Junkluggers placed #321 for its outstanding growth, financial stability, and brand power. It's the first time that The Junkluggers have made this list.
"It is a tremendous honor to rank among such a prestigious collection of companies," said The Junkluggers founder and CEO Josh Cohen. "We are proud to have the experience, the corporate team, and the passion to help others achieve the dream of small business ownership with the company that is the leader in sustainable junk removal in a growing service industry."
The Junkluggers was born 15 years ago when Josh started using his mother's SUV, going door-to-door handing out flyers. The company endeavored to provide an eco-friendly alternative to junk removal. Growing from a small, grassroots business to a national franchise, the brand can be found in more than 60 markets and 13 states with approximately 70 trucks on the road. They are projecting to grow to 200 markets over the next 3 years. They have also launched a unique add-on brand called "Remix Market," which rescues, salvages, upcycles, and restores high-quality furniture (and other household items) that otherwise would have ended up in a landfill.
"Our on-demand service empowers franchise partners to earn a great living while doing good in their communities by creating jobs, supporting local charities, and protecting the planet for future generations," said Cohen. "This attention from Entrepreneur is just another stepping stone on our way to providing seamless customer service and environmentally-friendly disposal practices across the country."
For the past 40 years, the Franchise 500 has been a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. The Junkluggers placement here is a testament to the company's strength as a franchise opportunity.
"As we celebrate 40 years of producing the Franchise 500, it's a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980," said Entrepreneur Editor In Chief Jason Feifer. "While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology."
