Why Franchise With Junk King?

No Industry Experience Required: By utilizing an executive ownership model where you make the decisions and manage your own business, you won’t need to take the trash out to be successful, especially after hiring an expert staff.

Multiple Revenue Streams: From standard junk removal to dumpster rentals to eco-friendly recycling, there are numerous services that provide value to your business and customers alike. Plus, our trucks are 20% bigger than most competitors, so you’re able to handle king-sized hauls more efficiently.

Prime Territories: With available territories in some of the fastest-growing markets, there’s ample space and demand to establish your franchise. Better yet, thanks to designated territories, you’ll be able to collaborate and share best practices with other Junk King locations instead of compete for the same customers.
