March is all about Women’s History Month, and at Junk King we consider our female franchisees the Queens of the kingdom.

With high-performing sales, strong operations and heavy community involvement, our Junk Queens know what it means to own a profitable franchise.

Marnie Prince, Owner of Junk King Tucson – Networks of Support
“I was looking for the right market to enter into with a franchise system that supports my goals and believe in what I want to achieve—and Junk King was the perfect fit. My advice to women interested in franchising is: Do it! Don’t be afraid to venture into franchising. One of the great things about franchising, regardless if you’re a man or a woman, is there is an amazing network of people to give support and answer your questions.”
Peggy Lymath, Owner of Junk King Gold Country – Customer Service
“You would think because it’s junk hauling and it can get a little dirty that it would be a man’s job, but it’s really not. Junk removal is more about customer service, which a lot of women are great at, so it works and we can put a different spin on the junk removal approach. Whether we have a man or woman driver on the job, we know we’ve got it covered. It is a great feeling to be able to walk away with a lot of happy customers.”
Melissa Michel, Owner of Junk King Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale – Take a Leap of Faith
“The junk removal industry is commonly thought to be a male-dominated industry, but I am a woman and I work hard every day and do the job just like any man would. As a business owner, I look to recruit anyone who is qualified, including women. I’ve found that women are able to create a great connection with our customers, and they really appreciate having a woman come out to the job and get it done. I would tell other women to take get out there and learn more about franchising and to take a leap of faith. It’s been such a great experience to be a woman business owner in franchising, and it has also been so rewarding.”
