The junk hauling business is a great option for those interested in entrepreneurship and owning their own business but are hesitant about their lack of experience. Eric Myers knows this firsthand; he quit his longtime sales career and started his own waste removal company, Junk Junk Baby!. That was over 12 years ago, and the brand has now grown into an emerging franchise that offers the same opportunities to others.

Junk Junk Baby! has a business model that is great for those just getting into franchising, as it has a small initial investment, low operating costs and high returns. The corporate team has streamlined the operations of the concept to make the process an easy and natural transition for new owners. 

“As someone who left the corporate world to start a junk removal business, I know how important it is to have a sensible model where costs are low and profits are high. Over the years, we have built a tried and true model that we are excited for franchise owners to take advantage of,” explained Myers. 

The costs involved with owning a Junk Junk Baby! territory are quite attractive in comparison to other franchises and industries. Start-up costs are between $84,775 and $131,500, including the initial franchise fee of $45,000. An 8% royalty is paid to the franchisor. 

And once a franchise owner is up and running, the operating costs are also fairly low.  The overhead is much lower than other types of business, as the junk-hauling is performed on-site with minimal labor and no brick-and-mortar office space required. 

Myers and his team have crafted Junk Junk Baby! so business owners do not have to invest much in it, but their returns can be quite high. 

The corporate location has seen amazing success since the company’s inception, with 49% net profits. Junk Junk Baby!’s gross revenue was reported at $230,000 in 2019, $320,000 in 2020 and $470,000 in 2021. 

This proves that the low-cost model is in high demand. Recent numbers show that the waste industry is valued at $75 billion.

As Junk Junk Baby! continues to grow its franchising footprint, more and more owners will get to experience the benefits of this low-cost, high-reward model. The brand is looking to partner with interested parties in markets in Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire, which are close to the brand’s headquarters in Boston.
