In the world of business, one of the ultimate goals for business professionals is to one day own a business of their own.
While it can be incredibly difficult to start up something from scratch, a different alternative to business ownership is through franchising. With a company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we provide a rewarding franchising opportunity within the moving industry – an industry that is continuously growing – by providing a need to people all across the country.
What started out as a small, local business in Lansing, Mich., for a couple high school students, has turned into a 35-year adventure as we’ve become the first and largest franchised moving company in the United States. We currently have 350-plus franchise locations across the United States, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, and are continuing to expand our footprint and expand our service options.
As it is with any business, we could tell you all about our franchising model and why it’s tailored for your success, but sometimes it’s better to hear it directly from those who live and breathe it each and every day – our franchisees!
We asked a few franchisees around our system why they would recommend a franchising opportunity with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and here’s what they had to say.
Tyler Whalen – Multi-unit Franchisee – Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico
“TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, as a franchisor, will always be as hands on or as hands off with your business as you’d like them to be. They really care about your success and if you reach out for help and support, they are right there behind you offering it. After 35 years, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has not gotten comfortable with where they are, and continues to heavily invest in our business model by offering new services like Value Flex®, portable storage, and constantly increasing our technologies.”
Mike Lally – Multi-unit Franchisee – Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania
“We have a dynamic franchise system that rewards teamwork and grit. Our leadership continues to raise standards and expectations which, if we all have a voice in getting there, protects our position as an industry leader. I continue to watch hardworking, disciplined, and open-minded people join our system and take us to new heights, which is a great recipe for success.”
Nathan Bocock – Multi-unit Franchisee – Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia
“The main reason that I would recommend TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is because I trust the brand. I don’t know that franchisees in other brands can always say that.”
Dan Shunk – Multi-Unit Franchisee – Illinois, Indiana, Iowa
“Franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK must be extremely personal and can have a profound impact on you and your family. This isn’t a hobby business – it’s immersive and grows to be a huge part of you. You can have a huge impact on your community and your staff. As long as you are willing and able to make the personal, financial and time investment required, the type of business you create can have a great impact on you and everyone it touches.”
