TAMPA, FLORIDA…. (May 1, 2008) -- Canadian-based Just Junk Franchising Corporation has begun licensing with its first franchise set to open in Florida and franchising expansion efforts are underway throughout the United States.
The five-year-old, award-winning junk removal and waste management company is also considering plans to build a Florida-based training and call center for prospects and Just Junk franchisees nationwide. The center will handle job bookings and customer service inquiries for all U.S. franchise partners.
“We’re really excited about breaking into the Florida junk removal and waste management market,” said Rick Dixon, Director International Franchise Development based out of Tampa Bay. “We see Florida as having almost unlimited potential.”Ironically, it wasn’t all that long ago that the phrase professional junk removal was an oxymoron. But today there are several factors influencing the explosive growth of the industry. Downsizing baby boomers no longer willing or able to haul junk to the curb, the mushrooming home renovations market and the shorter life cycle of many manufactured products are all contributors.
Dixon envisions Florida as the springboard to introduce Just Junk’s environmentally conscious junk removal model to other communities across the United States, based on the overwhelming response and interest generated to date. Over 60 per cent of the material Just Junk removes from homes and businesses is either recycled or donated to local charities. Even salvageable construction debris is donated to Habitat for Humanity, and remaining materials are disposed of for further processing at landfill or transfer stations.
“We want to make the process of junk removal as common as ordering a combo meal at a fast food restaurant,” Dixon said. “And we want our clients and customers to know that we’re doing our part not only to help clean up their homes and businesses, but our environment as well.”
