As we wrap up 2018, it’s always good to reflect on another positive year within the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK family!

A big focus on our franchising blog this year was story-telling and working to highlight some of the outstanding individuals in our company– and we did just that! From franchisee profiles to stories on our Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward® Scholarship candidates, we were able to highlight some of the brightest minds associated with our brand.

So as we close out the year, let’s take a trip down memory lane for the last 12 months and re-visit some of these stories.

Enjoy!
