TAMPA, FL, November 09, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Named Top Franchise For Veterans by Franchise Business Review, College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving®, proudly has a number of veterans on its roster of franchise business owners. Over the past year, the company that is an industry leader in stress-free solutions for moving and junk-hauling needs, has welcomed six new veteran-owned units spanning coast-to-coast from California to New Hampshire.
"I've been in franchising for more than 15 years, both as a franchise coach and working with another franchisor. I was thrilled to learn there were so many veterans in ownership roles at College HUNKS and wasn't surprised that they were among the most successful owners in the system," said Dana Hansen, Director of Franchise Development for College HUNKS.
"Based on my knowledge of veterans, having personally served in the United States Air Force in the Gulf War, I know they tend to be especially skilled at motivating young men and women, building leaders, excelling in a structured system, and executing the game plan," continued Hansen, "All of these factors align with the philosophies of our organization and have contributed to our collective success as an enterprise."
Across the College HUNKS system, veterans make up more than 10% of owners. In the past year, College HUNKS signed on the following veterans franchise owners to help expand the brand and their services throughout the United States:
• Grant Broom (Manchester, NH)
• Chad Dutton (Mobile, AL)
• Richard and Caren Francis (Columbus, OH)
• Laura and Jack Gordon (Florence, KY)
• Clement Harris (San Diego, CA)
• Cordell Mance (Eldridge, TX)
• Kyle Henning (Kansas City, MO)
• David O'Hanna (McKinney, TX)
"As a veteran, when considering franchise opportunities, I was looking for a brand that mirrored my values," said Laura Gordon, Co-Owner of the Florence Kentucky College HUNKS. "College HUNKS has a reputation of maintaining a positive work culture, creating high team morale, engaging with the local community and giving back. These points aligned with who I am, and I felt a strong tie to the brand."
College HUNKS is also a proud participant in the VetFran franchise for veterans' program. College HUNKS has proven to be an ideal franchise for veterans. The experience veterans have gained through their service translates extremely well to franchise ownership. Beyond that, qualified military veterans are eligible to receive a $7,500 discount off of the initial franchise fee.
