Creating a welcoming, positive culture for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchisees


When Founder Mary Ellen Sheets began building the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® brand, a positive culture focused around giving back to the community, living by a set of core values, and a mindset of promoting our own people, which helped establish TWO MEN AND A TRUCK not only as a leader in the moving industry, but an organization in which people wanted to be involved..

Franchisees from all backgrounds have come to find a home here, opening their own moving operations and finding success along the years.

“I would recommend franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK because of the support you receive from the Home Office support teams,” said Curtis Newman, a multi-unit franchisee with locations in Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, and Texas. “I have owned other franchises in my professional career outside of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and I can honestly say that none of them provide as much support as you get with this company.”

Here are a few things that set the tone for our TWO MEN AND A TURCK franchisees and how they run their operations!

A commitment to giving back

As mentioned above, Founder Mary Ellen Sheets worked hard on creating the culture you see today at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and a big way she started this was with giving back to the community. She donated her first $1,000 of profit to 10 local charities in Lansing, setting a strong standard for keeping a focus on giving back.

From our partnership with Convoy of Hope to the charity programs we have started on our own like Movers for Moms®, Movers for Military®, Movers for Mutts®, Movers for Meals®, and Truckload of Warmth – we use our resources year-round to make our communities a better place.

A strong set of core values

The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK core values aren’t just words on a poster at our franchise locations – it’s a way of life, and it’s how our franchises model their reputation.

Tt’s also a good reminder to our customers and to our communities that we’re a company they can trust.

  • Integrity: To always conduct oneself with honesty and fairness.
  • Give back to the community
  • THE GRANDMA RULE®: To treat everyone the way you would want your Grandma to be treated.
  • Care: To have compassion for family, customers, co-workers and community.
  • Be your best and have fun: To be the best professionally and personally while enjoying life and having fun.
  • Inclusion: To welcome people from all backgrounds in the workplace and the community.

Recognizing our teams

It’s important to recognize the hard work that our franchisees, franchise staff, and franchise team members do each and every day – and we make sure we take time to honor that.

With events like our Annual Meeting conference and our Frontline Annual Meeting, successful franchisees and franchise team members get their chance to earn awards on the big stage and show the effort they’ve put in as they continue to help our brand grow.
