TWO MEN AND A TRUCK: A moving company on a mission

When Founder Mary Ellen Sheets put in a local newspaper ad for the moving business her two sons were running with their pickup truck in the early ’80s, she never imagined how far it would go.

Fast forward to today and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is the largest franchised moving company in the country with franchises in 46 states and four different countries. With each passing decade, we’ve continued to build our franchising network, expand our service options, serve even more customers, and further establish ourselves as the Movers Who Care®.

But this didn’t just happen overnight. It took endless hard work, dedication, and commitment from each person in the brand. We’re proud to feature a diverse, successful franchisee network and welcome new ways to improve our processes to ensure we’re a brand people want to continue investing in.

Franchisee testimonials show ownership possibilities when franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK

Since TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Founder Mary Ellen Sheets made the decision to franchise the brand in the late 1980s, we’ve done our best to build a franchisee network of people from a variety of backgrounds and give them the opportunity to find lasting success.

This requires effort from everyone involved with the brand, as we continue to build out additional services and systems to continue attracting new customers and allowing our franchisees to expand their reach. But at the end of the day, it’s our franchisees and their hardworking teams that keep the brand moving forward.

Without their business-savvy leadership and commitment to driving the brand in the right direction, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK wouldn’t be what it is today. We continue to add new franchisees to our network and have several open territories still available.

Learn why you should consider a franchising opportunity with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK

Today, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK proudly operates over 380 franchises across four different countries, and we recently completed our 9 millionth move as a brand. We’ve come a long way as a company from the days of two high school brothers trying to earn a little extra spending money in the Lansing, Mich., area in the mid-1980s, and this is in large part due to the franchise network we have built.

Our franchisees come from all different business backgrounds and walks of life, and we have kept growing our franchise footprint with each passing year by offering a franchising model built for success.

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
