TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, the nation’s largest franchised moving company, continues its streak of revenue growth, closing out the third quarter with 4.62% growth. The company has seen consistent revenue and franchise growth since 2009, now with more than 380 locations and 3,000 trucks operating in 45 U.S. states in addition to Canada, Ireland, and the UK.

To continue growing the franchise system with dedicated employees from within, this is the fifth year that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has awarded its Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward® Scholarship, awarding Quad Cities resident Juan Gallegos with a $50,000 check to begin his own franchise. For the second year in a row, the company also gave runner-up prizes to an additional three hardworking, dedicated employees to also become franchisees.

During the third quarter, the 2018 Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward® Scholarship winner Liz Friedmann opened her first location in Clifton, New Jersey. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is looking to open 11 more locations across the Garden State and is interested in speaking to franchise prospects that would like to open in Sicklerville, Vineland, Camden, Jersey City, Hackensack, Asbury Park, Paterson, Union, Plainfield, Morristown or Wayne, New Jersey.

“We’re proud of all of our scholarship winners, and are honored to be able to reward them for their efforts and offer a stepping stone to a new phase of career growth,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® President Randy Shacka. “The Moving People Forward® Scholarship winners are some of the most talented, hardworking and deserving people we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Providing our employees with professional development opportunities has proven to be excellent for both company culture and brand expansion.” 

Another new franchisee to open in the third quarter is Bobby Simpson, who opened a location in another new market for the brand, Frederick, Maryland. The company is actively looking to develop additional locations with franchise partners to service Waldorf, Aberdeen, Bel Air, Parkville, Baltimore, Hyattsville and Easton, Maryland and Exmore, Virginia. 

In addition to growing its franchise presence in the third quarter, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® also rolled out a new junk removal service. The Ann Arbor franchise location had received multiple calls about offering junk pick up, so the team decided to begin providing the service as the first in the system. Now, the St. Louis and Orlando locations are following suite. The company plans to officially pilot junk removal at the start of 2020, and then to eventually go nationwide if the service tests well.

“One of the many benefits of being a franchise system is having the ability to tap into our amazing family of franchisees to better understand what the consumer demand is and if there are services that align with our core that we might be able to offer,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® CEO Jon Nobis. “For example, we began offering storage last year when we saw a need in the marketplace. Now, our locations will begin to offer junk removal in the next evolution of our company’s services, providing franchisees with a new revenue stream and diversification of services.”
