VaVia, the small-haul waste disposal franchise, aims to change the way both business owners and their customers see the waste business while capitalizing on growing demand in the industry. Designed to satisfy an unfulfilled need for tech-forward convenience and professionalism in the segment, VaVia (Italian for “it goes away”) has become the premier player in the growing waste-removal industry. Now, as residential and commercial construction picks up following the COVID-19 pandemic, the brand is gearing up for major franchise growth in markets across the country.
Why VaVia? Why Now?
Demand is growing in the construction industry on the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic, in which waste disposal was considered an essential business. Because of that, Phillip Nappi, co-founder and president of VaVia, says the time has never been better to join VaVia. “Construction is growing all over the country, and our services are more in demand than ever,” he said. “We offer an exciting opportunity to fill that demand with a non-brick-and-mortar business and wide-open territory availability.”
Looking ahead, the VaVia team has a goal of signing 100 franchises in the next four or five years. By the end of 2021, VaVia hopes to have 14 units signed.
Why the Waste Removal Industry?
Nappi first entered the industry 22 years ago with the purchase of a small waste hauling company. After spending nine years growing the business, Nappi wanted a change, so he started Peter Nappi, a high-end shoe, boot and leather goods brand and learned all about the ups and downs of business ownership. Eventually, his path led him back to waste disposal, and in 2018, he spotted the need for smaller trucks and containers in the segment.
“General contractors needed more trucks that could navigate tight spaces and smaller containers,” said Nappi. “They also desired a higher level of service, and we saw the opportunity to use technology for a smart, easy and polished disposal solution for contractors and residential customers. Through professional dumpster rental and pick-up, we could help our clients finish their projects on-time and on-budget, without all of the headaches.”
Why Franchisees Are Successful with VaVia
VaVia was created with a goal of providing entrepreneurs low operating costs, proprietary technology and a simplified business model. The VaVia business model is focused on bringing in a high-repeat customer base through accountability, reliable services and proprietary technology that allows customers to order and schedule deliveries or pick ups of dumpsters online.
VaVia also keeps startup costs low for franchisees thanks to the ability to hire non-CDL drivers and operate without a storefront.
The total cost to invest in VaVia ranges from $117,150 to $365,050 per territory. This includes a franchise fee of $49,500. To learn more about franchising with VaVia, visit: https://www.govavia.com/franchise-with-us/
