Executive Q&A: JDog Brands CEO and Founder Jerry Flanagan

Flanagan discusses how the veteran-focused home services franchisor was born, some of the brand’s biggest milestones over the past two decades and the executive team’s exciting plans for the future.

1851 Franchise: What inspired you to start JDog Brands?

Jerry Flanagan: After declaring bankruptcy during the Great Recession, I was looking for a way to provide for my family, and I was set on finding an opportunity that would endure in any economic climate. I didn’t want my livelihood to be tied to some company that could go under overnight without any warning. I Googled “recession-proof industries,” and waste management was one of the top results. I thought that was something I could do, so I hooked a trailer up to my Jeep and got started.

And so, our first concept, JDog Junk Removal & Hauling, was born. I am a veteran, and after getting JDog Junk Removal & Hauling up and running, I quickly found that my military background provided a work ethic and degree of reliability that was rare in this industry. I had one customer who asked how I was so good at what I do, and I said it was probably because of my background in the Army. The military doesn’t tolerate corner-cutting or “just-good-enough” work. The customer said I should use that in my marketing, so I put “veteran-owned” on the truck, and things kind of took off from there. 

I began hiring veteran employees whose talents, goals and values aligned with my own. I realized I had an opportunity to make an impact on the veteran unemployment rate. The success of JDog in those first few years was so exciting. Not only had I built a thriving business, but I had found a way to reduce the veteran unemployment rate at the same time, and that’s a cause that is extremely important to me. We knew that if we really wanted to grow, and if we really wanted to reduce veteran unemployment, we needed to give Veterans the opportunity to open their own JDogs around the country. So, we turned to franchising.

Years later, when I was looking to expand on the business with a complementary service, I found that carpet cleaning and floor care not only went hand in hand with junk removal but the category also demonstrated the same economic resilience as junk removal. In 2019, we launched JDog Brands’ second concept, JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care.

1851 Franchise: What are you doing well right now? What are your brand’s differentiators?

Flanagan: As of today, we have over 230 veteran-owned franchise locations across the United States. We continue to appeal to franchisees because the business is exclusively service-based and requires no brick-and-mortar space, resulting in minimal overhead costs and an attractive work-life balance. We give franchisees the freedom to set their own hours.

We also thrived during the COVID-19 pandemic. People were spending more time at home than ever before. They were making new use of their spaces, and that entailed getting rid of a lot of junk. This has been a big year for us in terms of franchise growth — we’ve signed over 50 new franchise agreements so far in 2021 — but we really see it as just the beginning. Our name is out there now. We are a sought-after investment in the veteran community as well as the franchise community, and we’ve got a lot of whitespace to take advantage of.

1851 Franchise: What were some learning opportunities that JDog Brands leveraged to get where it is now?

Flanagan: One of our biggest learning opportunities came with the creation of JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care. Our franchisees on the junk-hauling side were constantly being asked if they knew a good floor cleaning service. People clear out their junk, and then they need their floors deep-cleaned — they go hand in hand. So, JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care was designed specifically to elevate and be elevated by our junk-hauling business.

We also never expected our veteran focus to be such a big part of what consumers love about JDog. We knew we wanted to do something to support the veteran community, and we knew that Veterans are excellent at following processes and getting the job — any job — done right, but it was surprising to learn just how dramatic a difference that made to our customers. We found that by implementing a business model that emphasizes the processes and values Veterans learn in the military, we brought a level of integrity that people were really hungry for, and it quickly established JDog as the name in junk removal.

1851 Franchise: What does your ideal franchisee look like?

Flanagan: Our franchisees are exclusively Veterans. Veterans often have a difficult time transitioning into civilian life. Most jobs don’t look anything like the military structure that Veterans are accustomed to, but franchising, when done correctly, can fit like a glove. Veterans like to follow a process. They take their training seriously, and they’ve got the grit and experience to overcome challenges. We’ve built our franchise opportunities to make the most of those qualities and help our franchisees find success quickly.

1851 Franchise: How does JDog Brands support franchisees?

Flanagan: The beauty of this business is that it requires no specialized skills or knowledge, but at the same time, it is designed to elevate the strengths of Veterans and make the most of their talents. So much of being in the military is about following a process, and with JDog, we’ve built a process that just about any veteran can take and turn into a thriving business.

We offer comprehensive training and ongoing franchisee support from our corporate office, and most new owners open their business in as little as six to eight weeks after signing the franchise agreement.

1851 Franchise: What growth plans does the brand have in the coming years?

Flanagan: We have emerged as a leader in a very in-demand market, and we’re ready to take full advantage of that position. We’ve got wide-open territory availability and increasing demand for our services from prospective customers. Now, we’re just focusing on finding the right franchise owners to help us launch in new markets.
