TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, the nation’s largest franchised moving company, reached another landmark milestone in its 33 year history: the 7 millionth move in early May.
Additionally, in June, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK s experienced the busiest moving weekend of the year across its system. The company records 3,600 moves system-wide on an average weekend during the summer, but from Friday June, 29 – Sunday, July 1, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s 7,600 employees and 3,000 trucks performed more than 5,400 moves across the United States in 72 hours, a system record, with an average of 2.5 moves per minute.
“The summer is our busiest moving season, and it’s a time for us to come together as a system and challenge ourselves to outperform what we did the year prior,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK President Randy Shacka. “It’s also a good time to refocus on our core purpose of helping our customers move their lives forward as comfortably and effortlessly as possible. Because we provide peace of mind to our customers during a stressful and potentially emotional time, we train our staff to go the extra mile, which is why our customer referral rate is 96 percent."
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK also earned industry accolades in the second quarter of 2018, including Entrepreneur’s Top Global Franchises and the Franchise Business Review Top 50 Franchise Rankings.
"Recognition from top industry publications and leading market research firms signifies what we already knew – that our team is one of the strongest in franchising and that our franchise offering is second to none," said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK CEO Jon Nobis. "Our home office staff of more than 200 employees is solely focused on supporting our franchise system and setting them up for success in their local markets. As we look to continue bringing new franchisees into the system, these accolades provide additional validation that the processes in place are providing exceptional results.”
For the rest of 2018, TWO MEN AND TRUCK plans to focus on franchise expansion in the Mid-Atlantic through the Northeast, including Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts.
