BROOKFIELD, IL, June 27, 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, continues its aggressive growth efforts and is opening a new location in Brookfield, IL. The latest College HUNKS will be opening on June 29, 2022 to provide the greater Chicago area with the company's signature fast, friendly, and professional moving and junk hauling services.
Franchise owner John Smego and General Manager Nick Tabor will lead the Brookfield College HUNKS team in serving the city's neighboring areas with helpful, high-quality moving and junk removal solutions. Prior to College HUNKS, Smego served in the U.S. Navy. He enlisted at 18 years old, so he could attend college and focus on electronics. He went on to attend Southern Illinois University, where he received a Bachelor's degree in Electronics Systems Technology. He worked in the medical industry, having dedicated 16 years at the same company and ended with a position performing field service on life support equipment.
"During my years performing field service, I was always told to treat it like my own franchise. With my dedication to customers and developing relationships with clients, I knew I could do more. So, I left a stagnated position without the possibility of upward movement to follow the ambition that led me to get my M.B.A. That has since propelled me into business ownership," said John Smego, Owner of the Brookfield College HUNKS. "My decision to join College HUNKS may have stemmed from being close with my grandparents. My grandmother taught me to host and do for others. This organization has amazing core values and they fit right in line with how I have tried to direct myself in life."
College HUNKS serves customers throughout North America by offering fast, flexible and dependable moving and junk removal services, as well as donation pickups and general labor assistance. The Brookfield College HUNKS is located at 4320 1st Ave, Unit 108, Lyons, IL 60534 and offers their best-in-class home moving, office moving, and junk removal services to Argo, Bedford Park, Berwyn, Brookfield, Cicero, Countryside, Forest View, Highlands, Hodgkins, Indian Head, La Grange, Lyons, McCook, North Riverside, Riverside, Stickney, Summit, Western Springs, and the surrounding communities.
"Brookfield marks the eighth College HUNKS location in Illinois. We are thrilled to partner with John and Nick to further expand our reach in the state," said Nick Friedman, Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS. "They are joining a strong network of like-minded individuals who are dedicated to providing excellent service to each client in a fun, enthusiastic team environment. It's thanks to our franchise partners that we are able to bring our quality brand to more communities and support individuals and businesses with their moving and hauling needs."
College HUNKS is also a purpose-driven company that is dedicated to being a part of the community. The Brookfield location plans to support the key causes of College HUNK, as well as local initiatives.
"I am looking forward to helping as many people as possible, whether it is helping someone get ahead in life or a small task that makes someone's day better," added Smego. "My biggest personal goal with this new endeavor is to spend more time with my son and be a good role model."
The Brookfield College HUNKS is veteran owned and operated. College HUNKS champions veterans and is a member of VetFran, a strategic initiative of the International Franchise Association and the IFA Foundation. VetFran facilitates the transition of veterans into franchising.
