What made you choose 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

I was lucky in that prior to me purchasing my franchise I had an opportunity to work for the Junktion for three years. I worked out of a field office in Washington, DC as a Field Advisor helping Franchise Partners grown their businesses. I was initially drawn to the franchise because of the experience, the people and the culture.

What was your career before 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

Prior to working for the Junktion, I was employed by the Young Entrepreneurs’ Organization (YEO) as a Chapter Development Manager.

What advice would you give candidates reviewing this opportunity?

Make sure you’re 100% committed to this if you want to succeed.

What is your favorite thing about owning a 1-800-GOT-JUNK? franchise?

The things that first attracted me to the business still hold true: I love the people, the culture and the experience. As long as I’m growing and learning then I’m happy. I also have really enjoyed watching my team grow. It’s a rewarding experience to help others - and if we can do it while we’re all making money, all the better!

Interesting fact about yourself?

I used to live in Antarctica and have completed an Ironman.

Actual Customer Reviews(Typos and all:)

"Wow! Your guys, Bob Anderson and partner Clint (from the Willowbrook, IL office) were incredible. They went up and down my basement stairs probably 30 times each, and never flagged. My basement had flooded 2 weeks before, so much of the stuff they were removing was waterlogged. They were courteous and just did a fine job, and in a very timely manner. I definitely will call you again. (And a tip to prospective customers: a nice touch would be to have some cold Gatorade on hand for the crew. I know I will next time! It's hard, hot work.)"
