Local Entrepreneur Launches an Eco-Friendly Junk Removal Service
HOUSTON – Junk King, the nation’s leading junk removal company earning nationwide acclaim for its unrivaled customer service and incomparable eco-friendly approach, announced the new ownership of the Houston East location with local entrepreneur, Mauro Di Filippo.
Launching his ownership in June 2020, Di Filippo comes with more than 25 years of experience in running a business. Before coming to the United States as an immigrant of Venezuela, he owned a printing shop and managed 30 employees.
“I have been a business owner for a large part of my life. At the age of 21, I took over the family print shop business, building it from two employees to 30,” said Di Filippo. “Although there has been progress made within the recycling business, there is still more that can be done and that’s what drew me to Junk King. The brand continues to make a conscious effort to keep items out of landfills by looking for innovative ways to repurpose or reuse items.”
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. In fact, Junk King maintains the highest Net Promoter Score (NPS) for any service business in North America, a clear indication of the importance the company places on customer satisfaction.
“Mauro joins Junk King with an extensive knowledge of what it takes to run a business, keep the employees’ best interest in mind and provide a quality customer experience,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO and co-founder of Junk King Franchise Systems. “We know he is going to continue growing Junk King Houston East’s legacy and bring a renewed energy to the community.”
Unlike the majority of junk removal services, pricing for Junk King is based on the amount of junk removed. The brand’s trucks are 20 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.
