What should someone know before becoming a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise owner?

“Although you’re a business owner, it’s still a full-time job. If you can manage stress, risk, balance, and the burden of responsibility, being a business owner can create a lot of cool opportunities. Being a business owner in a franchising system gives you access to many great tools and resources, as well as a tested road map to success, but it’s still up to you to make everything come together. I have found good value in remembering that I’m the business owner – I have to drive the ship and make the tough choices.”

What are some of the best aspects of being a franchise owner?

“I would say the avenue it creates for me to show so much to my daughter – how much hard work can pay off, the impact you can have on people’s lives, how important giving back is, work and life balance, sacrifices, and the value of being creative to work around a challenge.”

What is something unique about the job that people wouldn’t expect?

“You can really have your cake and eat it, too! Not every day, but there are times when I’m still shocked to see how it all comes together. The business really does start to reflect you over time, and you’re able to mold everything together. It’s a lot of fun.”
