Sustainable junk removal service The Junkluggers recently finalized an agreement with experienced franchisees Ryan and Sarah Barclay to acquire ownership rights to the company’s current location in Charlotte, N.C.
“Ryan and Sarah are joining The Junkluggers team with a wealth of prior franchising experience, and I am confident that the brand’s Charlotte location will continue to thrive under their new leadership,” said Josh Cohen, founder and CEO of The Junkluggers, in a statement. “As we begin accelerating the expansion of The Junkluggers through our partnership with Contractor Nation, there is no better time to welcome new franchisees to our growing network.”
The Barclays’ career in franchising dates back to 2007 when they opened their first Meineke Care Center franchise. They grew that business to four locations in seven years before selling the locations to pursue other career opportunities. Prior to becoming a franchise owner, Ryan spent 10 years in the financial industry in both Pittsburgh, Pa., and Charlotte.
“While researching existing franchise opportunities in the Charlotte area, The Junkluggers was brought to my attention as a top option,” said Ryan Barclay in a statement. “The more I learned about the company and its unique eco-friendly concept, the more interested I was in becoming a franchisee. As Sarah and I begin this next chapter in our franchising journey, we look forward to helping the environment as we work toward contributing to The Junkluggers’ goal of eliminating 100 percent of waste from landfills by 2025.”
