Charlotte, get ready for an elevated, modern waste removal experience. VaVia (Italian for “it goes away”) has become the premier player in the growing waste-removal industry with its proprietary technology, streamlined operations and a leadership team backed by a combined 50-plus years of experience in the waste, franchising and technology development industries. And now, the brand is operating in Charlotte.

The location at 9417 Olde Statesville Road in Charlotte opened in the fall of 2021, and offers the brand’s reliable services and proprietary technology that allows customers to order and schedule deliveries or pick ups of dumpsters online.

The general manager behind the new location is Charlotte-based CD Turner, who is excited to introduce VaVia’s uniquely tech-forward waste removal services to contractors, construction companies, renovators, remodelers and more across Charlotte.

“We’re not a generic service, we have the technology in place to help our customers better than the competition”, said Turner. “We have live tracking updates of our trucks and deliveries, but more importantly, we are in tune with the specific needs from each of our customers. If we see something out of place, we jump in and go above and beyond.”

The new Charlotte location is part of VaVia’s plan to sign 100 franchises by 2026. By the end of 2022, VaVia hopes to have 10 new units signed, and according to co-founder, COO and president Phillip Nappi, Charlotte is particularly ripe for expansion.

“We're thrilled to bring the VaVia brand to the community of Charlotte alongside CD," said Nappi. "Comparing hauls for the first 18 days of October to the first 18 days in September, the location saw a nice increase of over 200%, and that’s continuing to climb. Demand for our waste removal services is at an all-time high.”

CEO Tim Wells says he is confident that the success being seen at locations like the one in Charlotte will allow the brand to experience growth in the new year.

“Through our tech-forward approach and commitment to providing our customers with top tier service, we're confident that our new franchise partners will continue to grow in the market as VaVia continues to expand through its franchise ownership opportunity across the country,” Wells said. “Our business is bringing a white glove service approach to the waste industry, particularly in the construction services segment. That level of commitment to customer service can’t be found anywhere else. Our model is also customer facing and designed to provide an ease of doing business that’s otherwise lacking in the industry. We’re looking forward to entering Charlotte, introducing them to the VaVia brand and growing relationships within the community.”

The total cost to invest in VaVia ranges from $117,150 to $365,050 per territory. To learn more about franchising with VaVia, visit:
