TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Looks To Expand In Mid-Atlantic And West Coast Markets To Meet Growing Demand

LANSING, Mich., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Double-digit growth for a record 36 months, new milestones for number of moves and franchise locations, and record revenue figures are responsible for increased franchise development activity for leading moving company, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® ( www.twomenandatruck.com). New stores in San Diego, Calif. and Westchester, N.Y., in particular, reflect a growing interest in coastal markets. As a result, the company plans further expansion in Southern California and the Mid-Atlantic states in the next 12 months.  

"We learned many valuable lessons during our first few years of franchising," says TWO MEN AND A TRUCK CEO Brig Sorber. "Namely, in order to be successful, our geographic growth had to build on the success of existing stores in the region. As a result, we've been very deliberate in our approach to new markets. Today, we have a level of store density that allows us to successfully expand in key markets that present tremendous opportunity for our brand, and we're encouraged by the early success of our new stores."

The company currently has more than 230 locations providing local and long-distance moving services to 34 U.S. states and three additional countries: Canada, England and Ireland.

"A quick scan of our map of locations shows great store concentration right down the middle of the country and, to a lesser degree, west towards Phoenix and east to New York," says Kelly Rogers, director of franchise development for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. "We see great opportunity for growth in the Western and Mid-Atlantic regions of the country."

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK routinely ranks among Entrepreneur magazine's "Franchise 500" listing of top franchise opportunities, and Franchise Business Review ranks the company among the top 15 franchise opportunities based on a poll of current franchise operator satisfaction.
