September 27, 2009 - College Hunks Hauling Junk has gone from a part-time summer gig to a thriving nationwide operation in only five years. This year College Hunks Hauling Junk has been recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies on Inc. Magazine’s 28th annual Inc. 500.
“To be acknowledge by Inc. is a great honor for our company,” said Nick Friedman, President of College Hunks Hauling Junk. “We aspire to be the most preferred junk hauling company in the nation. To be among the most dynamic, innovative, powerhouse companies is a testament to our business model, employees and growth.”
Originally founded in 2005 by Friedman and college friend Omar Soliman, this entrepreneurial success reported a revenue growth of over 1,170%. The company ranked 12th in Consumer Products and Services, and second in the Tampa metro area.
“If you want to know which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Jane Berentson, Inc. editor. “These are the ones finding solutions to problems and creating smart systems.”
A tribute to their ambition, Friedman and Soliman were previously named “Top 30 Entrepreneurs in America Under the Age of 30” by Inc. Magazine. At only 27-years old, Friedman has been invited to an “Under 35” panel with Donna Fenn, author of Upstarts: How GenY Entrepreneurs are Rocking the World of Business. He will share insight on the strategies he’s used to successfully grow College Hunks Hauling Junk at the Inc. 500|5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony on Friday, September 25 in National Harbor, Maryland.
