As we wrap up 2018, it’s always good to reflect on another positive year within the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK family!
A big focus on our franchising blog this year was story-telling and working to highlight some of the outstanding individuals in our company– and we did just that! From franchisee profiles to stories on our Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward® Scholarship candidates, we were able to highlight some of the brightest minds associated with our brand.
So as we close out the year, let’s take a trip down memory lane for the last 12 months and re-visit some of these stories.
Enjoy! Continue reading
All of us at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® would like to take a moment and wish each and every one of our loyal customers and readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! It’s the wonderful people who have used our moving services that keep us going, and we can’t thank you enough!
2018 was another exciting year for the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK brand, as we were able to continue expanding our footprint across the United States and finding new ways to not only move our customers forward, but to also give back to the people who live in the communities we operate in. Continue reading

The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK family atmosphere is a big driving force that keeps our employees motivated and moving forward with their careers.
Part of the encouragement in moving careers forward is the Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward Scholarship Program, which is a year-long program consisting of training courses, assignments, and presentation of a business plan at the end of the program. In the end, one person is chosen as the official winner, and is given $50,000 toward starting their own TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving franchise in partnership with their current franchisee!
This keeps our tradition of promoting from within going strong and gives existing members in the company the motivation to continue working hard toward their goals of becoming a business owner one day. Continue reading

Each franchisee in our network has their own, unique journey to how they ended up franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK.
For Franchisee Jim Fredrickson – who owns the Scottsdale, Ariz., location – his professional career featured multiple jobs, including construction, mining equipment sales, servicing parts, and general contracting.
Around the turn of the new century, Fredrickson was working in a role that required him to commute frequently. One day he picked up a magazine for some light reading, and it turned out that would open a whole new window for him. Continue reading

With more than 350 franchise locations across the United States and internationally, our franchisee network features individuals from a variety of business backgrounds.
Some come from within our system and have worked their way up from frontline positions, some have been successful business owners in different fields, but arguably none have the background that Multi-unit Franchisee James Bennett has.
Bennett opened his first location early 2014 in Rochester, Minn., but his business background wasn’t anywhere close to what you’d normally see in the moving industry. Continue reading

As the country spent the last week honoring the brave men and women of this country by celebrating Veteran’s Day, it reminds us all how important the sacrifices are these individuals have made for our freedoms we enjoy daily
This sacrifice is something we reflect on here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK year-round, not only in the work we do to give back to the veterans in the communities where we work and operate, but also in the employment opportunities we provide for veteran members. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has become appealing to veterans looking to get into business ownership, and the resources we provide speak for themselves. Continue reading
