JDog Brands, the parent franchisor to both JDog Junk Removal & Hauling and JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care, is looking to Phoenix, Arizona for franchise expansion. With nearly 300 active territories nationwide and three territories already established in the Phoenix area, the concept’s brand awareness is strong.

“Because we have three active territories in Phoenix, we already know that the community is a great fit for the JDog business models,” explained Kevin Kopa, President of JDog Junk Removal & Hauling. “Thanks to the franchisee that is currently established in the area, new owners will be entering a market where the JDog name is already known, and they will be close to a fellow business owner who has firsthand experience in the Phoenix market specifically.”

Each new territory will bring about five new job opportunities.

In the past year, JDog Brands signed 66 new deals, providing a substantial number of former service members and military families an opportunity to pursue entrepreneurship with the support of an established franchisor.

“We’re incredibly proud of the progress we’ve made this year,” said Jerry Flanagan, CEO and Founder of JDog Brands. “As we approach the 300-territory mark, we are reflecting on the ever-growing impact we’ve had on Veterans, their families and communities. Looking toward next year, the JDog team could not be more excited to welcome even more Veterans to the network while growing our business and philanthropic presence.”

Kopa added that, given the number of signings and openings JDog executed in 2022 and the strength of the junk removal and floor care markets overall, the brand is incredibly hopeful and excited to continue growing.

“The strength of the market and our growing brand awareness has led to franchisees starting off with higher revenue and more success than ever,” he said.

In addition to growth in Phoenix, JDog is targeting St. Louis, Salt Lake City, Baltimore, Tampa and more.

The total investment necessary to begin the operation of a JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care ranges from $37,909 to $169,947, including a $10,000–$25,000 franchise fee. The total investment necessary to begin the operation of a JDog Junk Removal & Hauling ranges from $30,000 to $110,000, including a $35,000 franchise fee.
