On the heels of 36 months of record consecutive growth and the moving franchise’s 52nd consecutive month of overall revenue gain, the company recently announced three Salt Lake City locations have transferred ownership to Franchisees Bill Bass and Don Hughes.
The franchisee duo now has a total of 11 franchise locations in various cities including Mesa, Ariz., Orlando, Fla., St. Petersburg, Fla., Las Vegas, Nev., Minneapolis, Minn., and now Salt Lake City, Utah. This most recent franchise transfer gave them the opportunity to promote from within, giving two managers from their Mesa, Ariz., franchise the opportunity to transfer to Salt Lake City and facilitate growth plans.
With a focus on overall growth initiatives, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is looking to surpass their 2013 numbers by posting a system-wide revenue goal of $375 million for 2014. In addition, the moving company intends to sign an additional 30 territories this year.
“Our company has continued to surpass growth expectations while focusing on top-notch customer service resulting in a system-wide referral rate over 96 percent,” said Randy Shacka, President of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. “The hard work each franchisee puts in daily at being their city’s best moving service for both business and home moves is helping drive these results.”
The company hit two large milestones this spring including their five millionth move and 300th location opening, and are now in the middle of the busiest season of the year.
“You have to have the vision beyond initial investment and want to grow larger with us,” Franchise Development Director Kelly Rogers said, noting the brand has huge opportunities for aggressive revenue growth within the company. “We see this as a white collar opportunity in what is perceived to be a blue collar business.”
The brand has been able to capitalize on the increased interest of prospective franchisees in the service industry. With many franchisees starting with a single territory and expanding once properly funded, the scalability coupled with the start-up costs between $178,000 and $583,500 (depending on the purchase or lease of a truck fleet) has positioned TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® to meet its aggressive goals.
