Nashville, TN, August 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Entrepreneur Dallas Randolph hit a roadblock trying to expand his business, The Clean Living Company, with a junk removal franchise: all of the 1-800-Got-Junk territories in the Nashville area were taken. Instead, he decided to take them on with a Go Junk franchise.
Randolph had a call for a junk removal job the very first day he was back in Nashville.
"It was a small job, but a very good lead with a man who’s a superintendent with a home builder, so it could possibly lead to more work," Randolph said. "Some junk from that job I was able to recycle and resell instead of sending it to the landfill."
That small job was just the beginning, as Randolph pulled in $2,000 in his first two weeks with Go Junk.
Randolph originally flew from Nashville to Tulsa, Okla., to meet with Go Junk founder David McDermott before he decided to take on the franchise.
"I just felt we were a right fit," said Randolph, who has started two other businesses besides his Go Junk franchise. "David is a real down-to-earth, blue-color type of guy. He'll come back with you for an entire week to hang signs and run around and meet people.
"Most people, you buy the franchise model, you're cut loose and you're doing your own thing. This guy understands that if you're successful, it'll make him more successful. I felt he was genuinely concerned about my success and the success of his franchises."
With Randolph's Nashville franchise, Go Junk has taken its first step in expanding across state lines. And McDermott is quite happy with the progress.
"It's a great investment opportunity," said McDermott. "If you're willing to put in the work, you can take your $20,000 initial investment and make an extremely high income extremely fast."
For $20,000, Go Junk franchisees get a certified used truck with a warrantee, uniforms, marketing materials, business cards, flyers, roadside signs, support and daily communication. However, only the most committed need apply.
"We’re looking for dedicated individuals who are ready to take this model to their territory and recreate our success," said McDermott. "I will bend over backwards to help you get started in the junk business, no matter where you're setting up."

About Go Junk
Go Junk grew out of Go Leaves, a landscaping business started by David McDermott in 2000. He entered the junk hauling business in response to a challenge by Brian Scudamore, CEO of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, to give him an American rival. Now, Go Junk has expanded throughout the Tulsa area. It offers people the opportunity to be self-employed while making money not only hauling junk away, but also by selling it off.
