Making a franchising investment with family

TMAT090

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we often talk about how we’re a family-oriented business. Founder Mary Ellen Sheets, along with her children – Melanie Bergeron, Brig Sorber, and Jon Sorber – all were instrumental in taking this company to the heights it has reached today, and each of them are still involved with helping the business continue in its growth.

This family message echoes in many ways throughout our franchises, but some individuals take it to a new level and have invested into our franchises with members of their own family or their spouses. Starting a moving franchise with family members can be both rewarding and exciting, and we have multiple instances to prove it can work. Continue reading

Part of what makes the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchising model and franchisee network so successful is the diverse business backgrounds that many of our franchisees bring to table.
