Aiming to sell 25 projected units by end of year. It’s a perfect time to be a franchisee.
We are very excited to announce TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has seen stellar growth for the past 44 consecutive months. We are on track for another year of strong system-wide sales, and we aim to build off of our 25 straight months of double-digit growth.
To date, our company has achieved revenues of $144 million and year-over-year growth of 20 percent through July with five months left in the calendar year. Compared to $260 million in revenue in 2012, we are on track to reach and possibly exceed last year’s performance, considering our busiest moving months historically occur during the summer.
“Revenues and customer satisfaction levels are very encouraging so far this year. As we continue with our objective of achieving the highest level of customer service paired with strategic growth into new markets, we look forward to serving our customers, each day earning our spot as the movers who care about delivering quality moving experiences.”
– Randy Shacka, President of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®
There are vast franchising opportunities with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® as we continue to grow and as our franchising development team aims to sell a projected 25 units by the end of the year. They have 20 units currently in development and maintain key expansion target markets of Washington D.C., Virginia, Maryland, Texas, Southern California and Portland, Ore., we are also eyeing overseas expansion in the future. As planning carries out, our ambitious 2013 growth plan closes in on triple the amount of new locations we had at the close of 2012.
Additionally, we plan to operate a total of 400 locations within the next five years while doubling our corporate office team, expanding the headquarters by 25,000 square feet, investing in automation, and increasing the company referral rate as close to 100 percent as possible. We currently hold a 96 percent positive referral rate and operate in 36 states.
“We are committed to our vision and goals and continue to invest and expand. We are blessed and have great momentum, but we are not sitting still and will continue to make the Two Men experience accessible to more customers. That is why we are diversifying our offering even more and targeting both coasts. We want to tell the larger story as Founder Mary Ellen Sheets said, ‘TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is a place where you can grow your career, be a difference-maker in people’s lives as they plan their moves, and work up the job ladder to evolve and grow each location as its own profitable business operation.'”
– Brig Sorber, CEO and one of the original two men of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®
Our brand has capitalized on the increased interest of prospective franchisees in the service segment of the industry. We have many franchisees starting with a single territory and expanding once properly funded, the scalability coupled with the start-up costs between $173,000 and $578,500 (depending on the purchase or lease of a truck fleet) has positioned us as a company to meet our aggressive goals. By 2018, the brand plans to exceed $750 million in revenue. In order to meet the revenue goal, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® spent the past four years carefully preparing and re-focusing the brand for continued expansion.
With 243 U.S. locations and 266 globally, Sorber said re-investing in technology, focusing on hiring talented people, and refining already solid operational systems throughout the franchise network have all been vital components in our ability to grow.
