Franchising With Trash Can Willys - FAQ's
Ok, A lot of answers to this one here's the main differences between franchising with US or THEM -
Them - If a territory is even available near you, they limit your longterm growth by "awarding" you a territory of just 300k people. Thats just 3 full college stadiums! Want more territory? Plan on spending an additional $1000 or more for every 25,000 in additional population
Us - We start our new franchise investors with a minimum territory of 500,000 with the opportunity to grow into a territory servicing over 3 million.
Them - You are allowed to purchase additional franchises, if you can find an available area, which is almost impossible - your growth is limited at best
Us - Not only are we only accepting just 60 Franchise owners, each franchise will be encouraged to grow to the maximum amount in their area which will not be capped due to a flooded market like our competitors. We will also offer a thrift store component franchise that builds upon your successful junk removal franchise as an added revenue stream, making your growth potential really unlimited.
First Year Earnings
Them - They hope for you to GROSS $172,000
Us - We shoot for a first year franchise owner to NET +100k*
*this is not a promise or guarantee
Them - Junk removal... period.
Us - Junk removal + piano removal, hot tub removal, shed and garage demolition, scrap metal sales, boat and car removal services, textile sales, and eventually an add-on thrift store franchise with endless free inventory supplied by your junk removal franchise
What Your Paying Royalties On
Them - Every single revenue stream
Us - Only junk removal related transactions - you will NOT PAY royalties on boat and car collection, scrap metal, textile sales or donation write offs... We will coach you on how to use these revenue sources to help offset your royalty costs. We also show you how to make 2% back on most business expenses!
Them - Regulation will be tight, they will be very hard to work with outside the box thinking whether its a good idea or not you will be bound by law to adhere to their rules
Us - If its a good idea we will work with you to aggressively expand sales with an outside the box approach. We will not regulate you out of business. We will help you and your business expand and succeed. If you have a good idea, we are all ears!
