That’s another year in the books! And what a year its been. Coming in on the heels of 2020, there was a lot of pressure on 2021 to be a period of growth, recovery and renewal for everyone. We’re pleased to report that 2021 was indeed a period of fantastic growth for Junk King, and it’s all thanks to our amazing franchisees!
In the last year, we’ve experienced 26% unit level growth and a whopping 40% system-wide growth across the country, as well as a 25% jump in yearly system revenue when compared to 2020 — those are eye-opening numbers! We’ve also totaled more than 20 new locations and 72 new trucks in 2021. Now, we have 501 trucks and 306 dumpsters in our fleet, and we only expect to carry this momentum into the new year.
2021 has also been a year full of accolades: We were named one of Franchise Business Review’s Recession-Proof Franchises, a Franchise Dictionary Game Changer, and a Franchise Times’ Top 400 Franchise, just to name a few.
We know our growth is going to continue in the New Year, and so do our franchisees. Check out what one of our longtime east coast franchisees has to say about working with Junk King:
“Junk King from corporate on down has a culture that is centered on customer service and making the customer happy in the field no matter what,” said Adam Diliplain of Junk King North Houston. “That’s what we do in every single job we go to, we’re fixing a problem and setting something right for someone. No matter what it is….When we show up there’s a problem and when we leave it’s fixed, which is incredibly gratifying when you get to do that all day, every day.”
From our royal family to yours, happy New Year! Here’s to the growth and excitement we know awaits us in 2022.
