Join the Movement that puts the “military way” to work for you
Are you currently deployed in the American Armed Forces, a veteran or a family member? Have you tried to do the “corporate thing” and found it wasn’t a fit? Do you want to be part of a movement that’s founded on military ideals? If so, JDog Junk Removal & Hauling wants YOU because:
1. You’re a member of the extended military family
Founded by Army Veteran Jerry Flanagan, JDog’s brand revolves around the American public’s support of current and former military service members and the belief that those who serve know how to get the tough jobs done. “The first thing they teach you in the service is punctuality, respect and work ethic,” Flanagan said. “Those skills were emphasized in my military training and they still guide me. I think that people who served make great franchisees, because they apply this same discipline to everything they do.”
2. Your military skills and discipline give you a competitive advantage
Veterans are hard working, decisive, experienced leaders who excel at mission accomplishment. And, once their service to their country has been completed, Veterans are more likely than their civilian counterparts to become self employed. Their skill set and experience make Veterans successful entrepreneurs, especially as franchisees operating under an established umbrella organization.
3. The junk removal and hauling business is rapidly growing, underserved and highly profitable
We need people like you to join us in tapping into this rapidly growing, underserved, highly profitable market, only a fraction of which is being serviced. Americans have a lot of stuff—excess stuff that’s piling up and creating anxiety for folks who just don’t know where to begin. So, while junk removal may not be glamorous, it’s needed and profitable. JDog franchisees help people de-clutter their lives and breathe easier. Plus, our customers feel good about where all that junk is going—it’s recycled, repurposed or donated to schools, hospitals or charities like Goodwill or Habitat for Humanity. JDog works with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to support the rehabilitation of veterans through its Compensated Work Therapy program. JDog also plans to donate 10% of annual corporate net income to veteran charities designated by their franchisees.
4. The American public wants to support veteran causes
When given a choice, Americans will always choose to support a veteran/ military-owned business. By offering franchises exclusively to members of the military family, JDog is hoping to help put a dent into the unemployment rate among vets. In fact, JDog is the only company attempting to build a national veteran brand. We need talented, committed franchise operators to roll up their sleeves and help us achieve success together.
5. You value your freedom
The JDog Movement is a powerful new mission that provides freedom from the uncertainty of what comes next. Freedom to build a business and choose a team. Freedom to call the shots while enjoying the support of a national brand. As one Army Reservist who is now a JDog franchise owner in Tennessee sees it: “Being a business owner gives me more control over my time and, as a result, a better quality of life.”
6. You want to prosper—on your own, but with support
JDog makes it easy to succeed. We offer a detailed Operations Plan to help get franchisees up and running quickly and profitably. We offer new franchise owners one week of intensive training at our headquarters in Philadelphia, PA and a follow up week of training at the franchisee’s location. Qualified franchisees can also tap into federal, state and local programs, benefits and resources that assist Veterans along the way. We’re also proud to offer advice and mentoring from our JDog “Joint Chiefs,” an experienced board of advisors that includes successful entrepreneurs and decorated military officers like retired Marine Major General Douglas O’Dell, and retired Captain Larry Liss, one of the most highly decorated helicopter pilots of the Vietnam War. According to O’Dell, “Since the most recent war, there has been no improvement from the government in helping veterans find meaningful careers as they exit the service…the private sector needs to take on this responsibility, which is why growing companies like JDog is so important.” Liss adds: “Many veterans do not realize how the skills they’ve acquired in the service allow them to be competitive in the civilian workforce. The superb decision-making and organizational skills position them to be successful business owners if they are given the proper tools and direction.”
7. You want to connect
We’re looking for people who value that sense of connection they had while serving and who want to be part of a bigger mission. JDog Junk Removal offers its business owners a sense of community that can’t be found in other franchises. Many franchise operators employ other veterans, helping other military family members transition to civilian life. And, unlike other franchises, JDog franchisees don’t compete with each another, but support fellow franchise owners. In fact, as more veterans join the JDog Movement, all benefit from the company’s growth.
