What makes franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK a good opportunity?
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we’re a family-oriented brand that’s focused on making a stressful time in people’s live a little bit easier. Our brand is built around a strong set of company core values and a willingness to give back in the communities in which we operate, and this mindset helps us continue to grow. Pair all of this together with the business strategies we implement, the dedicated support teams you get at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Home Office location, and the diverse franchisee network we have in place – and you find yourself with an opportunity full of potential.
What should I expect as a franchisee in the moving industry?
As a franchisee, your number one goal is to make sure all of the assets at your franchise location operate smoothly and in a reliable manner. From hiring movers and drivers to implementing a management staff, buying trucks and equipment, and much more – when all of your employees work together, you create maximum potential for your franchise.
How can I be more successful in franchising than opening my own business?
Franchising with a company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK allows you to operate with an already established, recognizable brand that will draw in more customers through brand recognition. We also provide over 35 years of experience in our industry, which serves as a valuable resource as you get your operation started. This experience can help you through difficult situations, as you are able to seek advice from other franchisees in the system who have experienced the startup process before.
When can I expect a return on my investment and be profitable?
There is major potential when you invest in a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise! Based on our research, franchises see an average annual gross sales that exceed their expenses.
