Bryan Jones, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Lafayette, La., Franchisee recently became a franchise owner after working his way up in the system and learning various job roles, which will greatly benefit him as he transitions to business owner.
“After seeing the unbelievable growth and the opportunities TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® had to offer, I decided to forego law school and see where the moving business would take me,” he said. “Shortly after I became the operations manager, I transitioned into the role of general manager. I knew becoming a franchisee was too great of an opportunity to pass up. My then franchisee, Joseph South, and I became partners and opened a nearby location in Lafayette.”
