Listen to the interview here:


1-800-GOT-JUNK founder Brian Scudamore on the advantages of joining a franchise system.

While in the drive-through at McDonalds, Brian Scudamore had an idea for a business. 25 years later, it is a multi-million dollar company and Brian has applied what he learned to two new companies, Wow 1 Day Painting and You Move Me. On this episode of the How to Quit Working show, Brian talks about his story of founding 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and the advantages of a franchise.

About Brian

Brian Scudamore founded 1-800-GOT-JUNK? in 1989. He bought a beat-up truck for $700 and called his company The Rubbish Boys.

His focus on customer service and professionalism quickly generated buzz, and his business blossomed. Ten years later he changed the name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and in spite of being told it was impossible, franchised the company.

Now, it’s the world’s largest junk removal service, with professional junk haulers in over 170 locations throughout Canada, the United States, and Australia.

in 2014 1-800-GOT-JUNK? celebrated it’s 25th anniversary, and its trusted reputation has enabled Brian to successfully launch two other brands. The once-unemployed college student is well on his way to owning a home-service empire.
