It’s rare to find a business ownership opportunity that allows entrepreneurs to tap into the growth potential of a proven system that offers multiple revenue streams. But that’s exactly what TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® offers its franchisees.
When it comes to the moving industry, the brand has positioned itself as the innovative leader to beat. Between its strong reputation among consumers to its positive and supportive system that fosters growth—both personally and professionally—TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has a long history of raising the bar when it comes to top quality moving services. And with its sights set on continued development in key target markets like Washington, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Vermont in 2017, it’s clear that its strong momentum isn’t slowing down.
That opportunity for continued growth is one of the many reasons that entrepreneurs across the country are signing on to become TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchisees. But it’s far from the only factor that’s fueling the brand’s growth. Here are the top five reasons to invest in TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.
1. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Is Positioned as a Leader in the In-Demand Moving Industry
Business is booming for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. The brand’s personalized approach to its moving services is recognized by customers all across the country, making its services increasingly in demand. Part of the top-notch moving experience could be the company’s use of technology over the years. The company’s new Value Flex® service was created to give customers another service option for their long-distance moves at an affordable cost. GPS tracking is even available for customers using that service to track their belongings. Additionally, a mobile app is available for movers and drivers to view designated jobs, customer notes, and even calculate and capture payment with the customer at the end of a move. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is much more than just two men and one truck these days. With more than 350 locations successfully operating in a variety of different communities, it’s clear that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s services stand out from the crowd.
“We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best possible moving experience. Packing up your belongings and heading to a new place has the potential to be incredibly stressful. Our hope is that by engaging our services, we help take away some of that unnecessary stress,” said Jeff Wesley, CEO of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. “That strong reputation is what continues to drive our momentum as we expand into new markets. Our franchisees have the ability to capitalize on our nationally recognized brand name, which is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs and business owners.”
2. Opportunities for Growth Are Available in Key Development Markets Across the Country
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is actively taking steps to expand its franchise system in the months and years to come. That means there are numerous opportunities for business owners to adapt the model and make it their own. And those growth opportunities aren’t limited to specific markets—TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is looking to expand in key development markets both domestically and internationally.
“Our business model is incredibly flexible, which allows us to open up in communities that other concepts may not consider. That’s one of the many things that makes our system unique—we have the ability to adapt our system in a variety of different communities,” said Noelle Burak, franchise development manager for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. “We’re looking forward to continuing to welcome new franchisees into our system as we continue our efforts to expand.”
3. The Brand Boasts a Model that Allows Franchisees to Tap into Multiple Revenue Streams
There’s more to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s system than traditional moving services. The brand offers its franchisees the opportunity to tap into multiple revenue streams through one of a kind programs and innovative initiatives. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Value Flex® long-distance service, for example, allows owners to complete affordable, long-distance moves for customers they otherwise would not be able to serve. In addition, the brand’s new mini market model allows entrepreneurs in smaller communities the opportunity to launch a franchise location for a more affordable price.
“Our Value Flex® service and mini market model are two things that are completely unique to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. There isn’t another moving company out there that’s working to diversify revenue streams for its local owners like we are,” Burak said. “By leveraging those two programs, our franchisees are able to boost their bottom lines and reach more customers. We’re constantly looking for those types of solutions to help our owners take their business to the next level.”
4. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Offers a Supportive and Affordable Business Ownership Opportunity
That commitment to providing support to its franchisees is a constant across TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®'s entire franchise system. From comprehensive and ongoing training to guiding franchisees throughout the grand opening process, the brand’s system is designed to ensure its local owners are set up for success. And that support continues for as long as an owner is with the brand—its corporate team makes itself accessible to all of its owners.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® also offers entrepreneurs an incredibly affordable business ownership opportunity that gets them in on the ground level of an in-demand industry. Startup costs for a standard franchise location range from $178,000 to $590,500, including a franchise fee that falls between $50,000 to $85,000. That initial investment is even less for mini market franchise owners—those startup costs range from $75,000 to $247,000, including a franchise fee between $15,000 and $30,000.
5. It’s Proven Franchise System Provides Owners with Opportunities for Continued Growth
Because TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s franchise system is simple, proven and affordable, the brand provides its franchisees with the unique opportunity to grow. Whether entrepreneurs open up in another market or expand their territory to reach new customers, there’s always room for its local owners to improve their business and expand their reach as entrepreneurs.
“I continue to be impressed with the work that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is doing every day, both from a corporate and franchisee standpoint.

We have the ability to help serve our customers every day while running our own business, which creates an incredibly rewarding experience.”
