G.I.HAUL® is on a mission to provide veterans an opportunity
PITTSBURGH, PA, USA, February 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — G.I.HAUL® Junk and Waste Removal, a Pittsburgh-based and veteran-owned and operated company, has signed their sixth franchise. Tampa, FL will be added to existing franchises in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Austin, and Fort Worth.
G.I.HAUL® was started nine years ago by brothers Mike and David McCloskey after both returned from service in Iraq. David served a total of six years in the Marines and Mike served a total of six years in the Army. Although each operated within a different branch of the military, both agree that the success they have experienced in the junk removal industry comes from one simple thing- providing an opportunity for veterans after they serve.
“After we came home from Iraq, we had nothing waiting for us. We didn’t know what to do. So, we decided to buy a truck and start picking up junk. We had to learn the hard way and took a lot of bumps along the way. We want other veterans who are just like us to have an opportunity waiting for them when they come home. That’s why we started franchising and that is our sole mission,” said David when asked about why they started G.I.HAUL® and decided to franchise.
“Our Mission is simple: Increase veteran business ownership and we do that by making it affordable.” Mike added. “We aren’t your average franchise. Our foundation is our culture that is shared by a group of like-minded veterans with a strong bond of not only military service, but a bottomless appetite to succeed and to be better. To be a part of G.I.HAUL®, you need the ‘all clear’ from the entire team.”
The McCloskey brothers and G.I.HAUL® aren’t being slowed or deterred by the recent pandemic, either. They are already in advanced talks with multiple locations and expect to open an additional 7-10 franchises within the next 12 months. Not bad for two brothers who started with just a truck and some trash.
