Local Entrepreneurial Couple Launches an Eco-Friendly Junk Removal Service
BOCA RATON, Fla. – Junk King, the nation’s leading junk removal company earning nationwide acclaim for its unrivaled customer service and incomparable eco-friendly approach, announced their expansion into Boca Raton with local entrepreneurial couple Keith Rafferty and Melissa Michel.
Serving the Boca Raton community, Junk King’s affordable junk removal services are now available to residents and businesses throughout the area. Rafferty brings with him 31 years of experience in owning and operating an industrial scrap metal recycling business as well as another seven years of owning and operating a solid waste hauling firm. Michel is a U.S. Army veteran and worked in military intelligence, after which she was an event and production planner. Her attention to detail, organization and customer service skills paired with Rafferty’s previous experiences have positioned both of them well as they launch this new location.
“When Melissa and I were looking for our next business venture, we wanted to buy into something that was a proven model and could also do some good in the community,” said Rafferty. “Junk King met both of that criteria, and the rest is history. We look forward to bringing these much-needed services to the Boca Raton area.”
In addition to the company’s professionalism, eco-friendly recycling and award-winning customer service, businesses and residents alike choose Junk King because of the brand’s state-of-the-art technology systems that allow customers to schedule a pick-up in real time. With the online booking system all it takes is a few clicks and within a matter of minutes Junk King can be scheduled and the job can be completed.
“As we were looking to expand our presence in Florida, we knew Keith and Melissa were the right type of people to help us do it,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO and co-founder of Junk King Franchise Systems. “They have been enthusiastic about opening in Boca Raton. Their experience has given them the right kind of skills to lead these efforts, and we are excited to see what they’ll accomplish.”
Unlike the majority of junk removal services, pricing for Junk King is based on the amount of junk removed. The brand’s trucks are twenty percent larger than the industry average, meaning there is no job it cannot handle. Sixty percent of the junk collected is recycled, rather than being dropped at landfills.
