LANSING, Mich., Feb. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, the nation’s largest franchised moving company, is continuing its impressive streak of 97 consecutive months of growth, with 81 of those months hitting record growth rates. Its year-over-year sales from 2017 eclipsed 2016’s performance by more than 10 percent, building on years of momentum.
Most of this success points to the hard work and motivation of the system’s 358 franchise locations across the U.S., which completed more than 545,000 moves in 2017 alone.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is the fastest-growing franchised moving company in the country and offers comprehensive home and business relocation and packing services. The company’s goal is to exceed customers’ expectations by customizing its moving services to fit specific needs.
Over the course of the brand’s more than 30 years in business, many of its franchisees have moved their lives forward by beginning as movers or drivers and eventually becoming franchise owners. In fact, one-third of the system’s franchisees share that similar path of growing with the brand. In 2017, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK signed 17 franchise deals, and many of the agreements came from franchisees growing from within. The Home Office team is gearing up to sign 15 more this year.
“We’ve been fortunate to see much of our franchise growth come from within the system,” said Co-CEO Jon Nobis. “That means our franchisees are finding success and are continuing to reinvest in the brand. We appreciate that ongoing validation, and are looking forward to partnering with more business-minded individuals who are looking for a strong franchise opportunity this year.”
Existing franchisees who are growing alongside the brand aren’t the only visible nods to success; major publications and award rankings are taking note of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK as a smart investment opportunity. This year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK ranked No. 89 overall and No. 1 in the moving/junk removal category in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500. The company also earned a spot on the coveted Franchise Times‘ Top 200 list and received a Franchise Business Review award that ranked the brand as one of the best franchise opportunities. Finally, Forbes.com and Fortune magazine each recently featured company executives and the brand’s founding story, gaining additional recognition from leading business publications.
