The path to business ownership can take on many forms, but one of the most efficient and rewarding ways to experience life as a business owner is through franchising.
Unlike starting your own business from the ground up – building an idea, developing brand recognition, creating a system from scratch – franchising allows you the opportunity to buy into a proven model of success and open your own location as part of an already established brand. At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we’ve created a franchising system that has lasted for over three decades now, and one that has seen countless individuals find success and grow from a single-unit franchise to multi-unit franchise group.
“We love the franchise model – you don’t have to reinvent the wheel,” said Bert Kolz, president of the Blackwolf Group, a multi-unit TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise group. “TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is a well-respected brand, it’s a high quality brand, and we don’t have to reinvent things. So we can basically use the road map that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK gives to us, and then expand that into our local markets and make them successful.”
For those that are skeptical of entering the world of franchising – or more specifically, the moving industry – fear not. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has created a system designed to get you on the path to success with hands-on training and dedicated support.
This all starts with the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Home Office building, which features subject matter experts in a variety of fields that include accounting, marketing, sales, information technology, risk management, DOT and compliance, human resources, and more. These hard-working support teams are available to help and serve as an invaluable resource as you’re starting your operation.
The next key component is the training we offer to new franchisees. Once you sign for a franchise location, you’re invited to our “Gearing Up” training program, where you’ll learn the ins and outs of franchising within our brand. You also gain access to our expansive online training library, real-time webinars, and much more.
“There are very few brands that are as committed to franchisee support as TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®,” said Nick Powills, CEO and founder of No Limit Agency. “From the depth of corporate departments to the depth of training at the corporate headquarters, franchisees can clearly see their royalties at work. This is a business focused on never being satisfied, which in turn, will continue to change the lives of those who are allowed to join this exclusive club.”
On top of all of the training and support you receive as a new franchisee, arguably the most important resource is communication with our vast franchisee network. With franchisees who have been with us for multiple decades all the way down to new franchisees, we feature individuals from all backgrounds, and they’ve seen just about everything there is to see in the franchise moving industry.
It’s just another aspect that separates franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK from other franchise models.
“I always recommend TWO MEN AND A TRUCK as a franchise system,” said Ashley Anderson, a franchisee in the mid-Michigan area. “It’s a quick start up, even if you don’t have any idea about a moving company. The Home Office team helps guide you right from the start. Other franchisees are always lending a helping hand and a listening ear.”
