TAMPA, FL, March 21, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving®, an award-winning company and industry leader in stress-free solutions for moving and junk-hauling needs, recently hosted its 2022 Reunion and honored achievements of its franchise locations across the company. The event brings franchise partners, front-end team members, and corporate staff to celebrate recent accomplishments including more than half of its franchise locations beating industry odds by making more than $1 million a year.
"Our franchise partners really put in the work this past year and it showed in the results they generated for themselves and our organization," said Nick Friedman, Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS. "In our nearly 20-year history, 2021 was one of our best years yet! We exceeded revenue goals, added 50 new locations, made television history being the first co-founders on the CBS series UNDERCOVER BOSS, and more. We truly had a lot of reasons to celebrate with our teams and were delighted to spotlight them and their amazing achievements."
In sales achievements, 85 locations made more than $1 million in revenue. In 2018, only 9% of small businesses nationwide were able to reach $1 million.
As part of the 2022 Reunion, College HUNKS recognized top achievers across the system, as well as milestones reached by their corporate teams. This past year, 11 College HUNKS team members marked their 10-year anniversary with the brand.
The Long Island College HUNKS had a record-breaking year. At last year's reunion, the New York flagship location was the newest member of the 7 Million Dollar Club and at this year's event, they were recognized for reaching $10 million. They took home the Trailblazer award for being the first to generate $1 million a month, plus they were able to achieve this three times in a row. Franchise owners Ted Panebianco and Steven Nickels, alongside COO Eric Natale, were also honored by the International Franchise Association earlier this year with the Franchisee of the Year award.
College HUNKS celebrates their Raise the Bar winners, those who were top of their class in key revenue and market saturation metrics, with an all-expenses paid trip. This year, the company will be inviting their 24 winners to join them in Key West, FL. Past winners have enjoyed resort stays in Cancun and San Diego, cruises to the Bahamas, and more.
"We launched into 2022 with so much excitement and drive from what our teams were able to achieve in the past year," added Friedman. "We are thrilled to see what more we can accomplish together to further grow and elevate our brand."
