New equity partnership enhances expansion opportunities for the growing eco-friendly junk removal franchise
SEYMOUR, Conn. — Sustainable junk removal service The Junkluggers announced recently its partnership with equity investor Contractor Nation, North America’s leading network of home services and home improvement contractors.
The Junkluggers’ minority equity partnership with Contractor Nation will provide enhanced resources to the eco-friendly junk removal franchise including access to expanded sales and marketing capabilities, a growing network of contractors, and proprietary training and professional development programs.
“Contractor Nation is dedicated to helping home improvement contractors grow and thrive, and we see great synergy between their mission and our growing franchise system,” said Josh Cohen, Founder & CEO of The Junkluggers. “After being exposed to Contractor Nation CEO Larry Janesky’s School of Entrepreneurship, his dealer network and Contractor Nation’s incredible company culture and team, I knew collaborating with his business would accelerate the growth of The Junkluggers.”
The Junkluggers relocated from its Stamford-based corporate franchise office to a private building on Contractor Nation’s campus in Seymour, Conn. The Junkluggers of Fairfield and Westchester, its corporate-owned service location, will remain in Stamford as will its sister company Remix Market, a unique concept in the home furnishing marketplace with an ever-changing inventory of estate treasures and upcycled pieces.
“Josh has already built a great company and we believe he can lead The Junkluggers to even greater success by using our proven processes and programs with his team,” said Larry Janesky, Founder & CEO of Contractor Nation. “Working with Contractor Nation and the companies in our network creates an excellent opportunity for The Junkluggers to grow.”
In addition to partnering with Contractor Nation, The Junkluggers had a strong start to 2019 with double-digit revenue growth. The brand, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, currently has franchise deals in Pasadena, Calif.; Columbus, Ohio; Knoxville, Tenn.; and several other markets that will close before the end of 2019.
