It's not bad to call a man a hunk if he calls himself it, right?

Either way, this group of college hunks decided to make a profit off of their muscle power by creating a moving business: College Hunks Hauling Junk.

It started in the summer of 2003 after a group of college buddies started helping customers sort, move, recycle and dispose unwanted items.

After making a decent amount of money, Omar Soliman submitted the business plan to the University of Miami's Leigh Rothschild Entrepreneurship Competition.

Once he graduated, he and co-founder Nick Friedman continued to grow the junk removal business, and in 2007 they started franchising eventually making their way to Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 list as No. 232.
