Making your TWO MEN AND A TRUCK investment worth it

For anyone who is planning to make an investment into franchising, there’s one question which stands out above the rest: How soon will I see a return on my investment?

It’s no secret a big goal when it comes to business ownership is seeing a return on your investment as you work to build a sustainable operation that can help you and your employees continue to move forward. For a franchising model like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, this starts with building brand awareness, offering a variety of quality services, and proving you’re a brand customers can trust time and time again.

“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. 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.”

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has worked hard over the past 35 years to provide franchisees with all of the necessary resources to become successful franchise owners. Our bread and butter began with traditional home moving, and we have since built additional services around this – including long-distance moving, junk removal, storage, packing services, in-home delivery, in-home moving, and more.

We’re proud to boast a 96% customer referral rate, showing we’re a brand name people recognize as reliable. This goes a long way in maintaining our success, and given our recent acquisition by ServiceMaster, we’re working harder than ever to grow our brand even further.

“Franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK gives you the ability to run a small business with the support of a very caring system,” said Josh Payne, a multi-unit franchisee with locations in Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, and Texas. “The revenue and profit potential in comparison to other franchising opportunities is incredible. When you add those things with the ability to truly help people and make a difference in the community, it is an opportunity everyone should look into.”

According to our franchising data, franchises that had been open for 12 months of operation saw an average gross sales of $682,402, while average annual expenses totaled $655,259. By year three of operations, a majority of our franchise were able to experience significant growth, with average gross sales of $1,176,579 and an average annual expense total of $951,321.

By year five of operation, the average annual gross sales were $2.2 million with an average profit of 11 percent, showing just how quickly you can start to see a return on that investment.

“I would definitely recommend franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK,” said Jeremy McDuffie, a franchisee in Outer Banks, North Carolina. “The company’s reputation speaks for itself. It provides endless career opportunities and it provides the chance to give back and help in the community.”
