We recently celebrated our acquisition by Neighborly at our 11th Annual Junk King Conference in San Diego. As part of the franchise conference and awards ceremony, we went with the theme “Junk King 3.0 Hauling Into the Future” to spotlight new growth opportunities for our top-rated junk removal business.
With our recent acquisition by Neighborly, one of the world’s largest home services companies, we’re expecting the next 12 months to consist of systemwide transformations to continue driving our upward trajectory. This includes an increase in business-to-business jobs, a revamped consumer experience with a newly designed website, an implementation of additional operational efficiencies in the call center as well as expanding our National Accounts program.
In 2022, total revenue was up 5.2% percent from 2021 with 48 new trucks added to our fleet supplemented by 23 self-service dumpsters. We also expanded our reign across the country with 51 new franchise locations and celebrated the 10-year anniversaries of Junk King Charlotte, Junk King Orange County and Junk King Pittsburgh. As we reflected on a successful 2022 and outlined our growth goals for the year ahead, this year’s conference was a major high point for Junk King.
