Within the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system, there are several success stories of movers becoming managers, managers becoming franchisees, and so on. For Boston Franchisee Brian Stern, his story is no different. He’s moved up the ranks in his 10 years with the company, starting as a mover, becoming a driver, trainer, customer service representative, manager, general manager, and now franchisee. To say Brian has experience in every field of the business is an understatement. Now, he’s finding the perfect fit in Boston as he works to grow the brand in a new city.
“It is especially rewarding being able to look back and see where you came from,” said Brian. “It allows me to really paint a picture of what this company has to offer when speaking to current managers, CSRs, or even a new hire.”
Currently there are three locations up and running in Boston and year-to-date, the locations have seen more than 30% growth. There are also plans to open a fourth location early 2017, which will be essential in helping with their truck parking needs due to their growth.
Since opening the first Boston location November 2015, the entire team takes pride in the worthwhile community events and charities they’ve had the privilege to be involved in.
“Boston has welcomed us with open arms. One of the most rewarding things we have been part of would have to be the Boston Marathon. Our reputation of giving back to the community apparently spreads fast. Nine months after opening, we were contacted by the Boston Athletic Association. We were able to assist them in fine tuning the logistics and set-up of their 26 course medical tents. This is an area in which they had struggled for years. After several meetings and debriefings on our performance, they are working on a contract to lock us in as a full-time partner. We are thrilled and proud to be part of something that is so important to everyone in Massachusetts,” said Brian.
The Boston team has also been very active in the Massachusetts’s Mover’s Association, and Brian has recently been voted onto the Board of Directors for the organization.
“Knowing how important these associations are to our industry, I’m really looking forward to the learning opportunity and will put my best foot forward to give back to the association,” he said.
Being a major hub on the I-95 corridor, Brian said they’ve had the ability to partner with many other TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations down the east coast to maximize interstate revenue and move even more people forward.
