If you’re someone looking to own a business, it’s important to pursue a franchise opportunity that fits who you are as a person. Company culture, core values, and the overall company vision are all aspects that need to be taken into consideration, and can make or break you as a business owner.
A lucrative and fulfilling business ownership opportunity can be found when franchising, particularly with a moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. Being leaders in the moving industry for more than 30 years, we have developed a franchise system that provides our franchisees the chance to work independently while gaining access to our proven best practices for success.
With an abundance of franchising opportunities in a variety of regions across the country and 91 consecutive months of growth as a system to match, there has never been a better time to join our team and franchise with the “Movers Who Care®”.
Become a business owner through franchising
Making the decision to franchise with an established company doesn’t make you less of a business owner than if you started your own operation. At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, you are given the freedom and tools to run things as you see fit, from hiring practices to marketing tactics, you call the shots on how to run your business!
We have franchisees from a variety of backgrounds throughout our system, and each one operates a little different from the next. Some of our franchisees are involved in the day-to-day aspects of their locations, while others work remotely. We offer a platform of flexibility with our franchisees, and allow them to use their best judgement.
While you are offered support from TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s subject matter experts at our Home Office headquartered in Lansing, Mich., it’s ultimately up to you to steer your location toward success with the resources provided.
A history of success
Our company began in 1985 with small, local moves in the Lansing, Mich., area, and since that time, it’s been full-steam ahead. Having completed over 6.5 million moves, we are stronger than ever, and have no plans of slowing down any time soon.
Even though we are traditionally known for our excellent home moving services, we have continued to place ourselves at the forefront of innovation within the moving industry. With the introduction of programs like our long-distance moving service, ValueFlex®, and our work to establish ourselves in the world of portable storage, we are finding more and more ways to make ourselves accessible to customers.
Still not sold on a franchise opportunity with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®? To add in with all of the positive strides we have made as a system, our franchisees have experienced positive results, too. Fifty seven percent of our franchisees own one franchise, while 23 percent own two or more, and 20 percent own three or more. Even better – of all franchises that were in operation as of December 2016, more than 40 percent posted a gross sales average that was higher than the system average.
Begin your path to ownership
We are a business that prides itself on a strong family atmosphere, and there’s nothing we want to see more than the people who franchise with us to find personal and professional success.
With our strong set of core values and our dedication to giving back to the communities where we work, a franchising opportunity with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is a fantastic choice for anyone who is looking to find success as a business owner while also making an impact in the lives of others.
