Junk removal sounds like a tiresome and dirty business, but things may get exciting when Count Junkula shows up. Count Junkula is a vampire-themed junk removal service that literally 'vaants' junk.

Founded in 2019, Count Junkula started with a simple mission: to provide residential and commercial clients with an efficient solution for their junk. Branding itself with Count Junkula as a friendly vampire who builds his castle with junk, the brand invites customers to get rid of whatever they don't need.

Customers may appreciate the efficiency of Count Junkula's removal services, colorful dumpster rentals, and cleanouts that honor deadlines, come rain or shine.

Since beginning to franchise in 2020, Count Junkula has opened several locations across the United States.

Why You May Want To Start a Count Junkula Franchise

If you love the environment and the value that proper garbage collection and disposal can create, then a Count Junkula franchise might be an exciting opportunity for you. Junk may be an endless resource, and with Count Junkula's extensive services that adapt to demand and capacity, the business may be promising.

Opening a Count Junkula franchise may offer a more predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that could struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive industry.

What Might Make a Count Junkula Franchise a Good Choice?

Count Junkula believes it is more than a company that cleans up the community; it is also a brand that is socially responsible and aims to transform how we view junk. With a focus on eco-friendly options, awareness on recycling, and donations to worthy causes, Count Junkula believes it is a brand that makes a difference. 

Count Junkula is a service that believes it has earned customers' trust. Customers may be able to relax knowing that their junk removal needs are met with professional precision. Franchisees should expect to coordinate junk removal services and market the business to commercial and residential customers. The responsibility for hiring and training staff to accomplish these goals also falls on franchisees. 

How To Open a Count Junkula Franchise

To be part of the Count Junkula team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include royalty and renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements. 

Make sure to research the brand and your local area to see if Count Junkula would do well in your community. Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask the Count Junkula franchising team questions.

If awarded a franchise, franchisees receive a great deal of support from the Count Junkula brand throughout the franchising process. In addition to pre-opening training, franchisees receive support through brand awareness, marketing, research, and construction. They also receive hands-on training and continued support after their units have opened.
