Even though there were record cold temperatures in the state of Michigan this week, it didn’t lower the spirits of the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK frontline staff gathered in East Lansing, Mich.

The attendees met for three days at the Kellogg Center for Frontline Annual Meeting, a yearly conference where our frontline team members get a chance to meet with Home Office employees, sit through educational sessions, participate in team building activities, and have some fun. It’s also a good chance for  frontline staff members to meet people from other franchise locations, network, and learn  how other operations conduct within the company. Continue reading

Since TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Founder Mary Ellen Sheets decided to franchise the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK brand, we’ve continuously worked to tweak our franchising model and make it as streamlined as possible for new franchisees.

We’ve come a long way in the 35 years since we began, and so too has the way we support our network of franchisees. Working to provide our customers with the best service in the moving industry is always the number one goal, but none of that would be possible without our franchise locations and the hard working franchisees, managers, and frontline team members working within those.

The path to business ownership can take on many forms, but one of the most efficient and rewarding ways to experience life as a business owner is through franchising.

Unlike starting your own business from the ground up – building an idea, developing brand recognition, creating a system from scratch – franchising allows you the opportunity to buy into a proven model of success and open your own location as part of an already established brand. At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we’ve created a franchising system that has lasted for over three decades now, and one that has seen countless individuals find success and grow from a single-unit franchise to multi-unit franchise group.

Moving forward – it’s a theme that is talked about often in the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK family, and one we love talking about when it comes to our employees and franchisees.

This is evident in all levels of the company, especially with our Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward Scholarship program, which was designed to take managers in the system, and put them through training and educational programs, ultimately choosing a winner at the end  to be awarded $50,000 toward their own franchise. This is a great opportunity for people to elevate their careers, and our 2018 winner, Liz Friedmann, recently opened her own location, in partnership with the franchisee team she was part of, and is settling into her new role.

The goal at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK always has been and always will be to offer our industry-leading moving services to as many customers as possible, and a big part of this starts with expanding our number of franchise locations.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK brand recently moved into another important city – Reno, Nevada.

New Franchisee Russ Riggs moved to Reno four years ago with his wife, and immediately fell in love with the area. He already had experience in the world of franchising, but noticed one key business was lacking in Reno – high-quality, professional moving services. After working through the process of owning his own TWO MEN ANDA TRUCK location, he just recently opened the brand’s first location in Reno. Continue reading
