Junk King North Houston Waves the Scepter to New Ownership and Expansion

Local Business Partners to Lead Eco-Friendly Junk Removal Service in North Houston

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 and expansion of its North Houston territory with longtime business partners Vik Patel and Adam Dillaplain.

Continuing to provide affordable junk removal services in the North Houston community, Patel and Dillaplain will maintain Junk King’s commitment to high-quality customer service to residents and businesses throughout the area. Dillaplain and Patel both join Junk King with a background in technology and experience in running their own data systems company. Their company specialized in removing, recycling and reusing equipment at the height of the dot-com bubble. The duo was able to recycle the material while safely decommissioning building spaces. After growing the company to a multi-million-dollar enterprise, Patel and Dillaplain sold it and decided to invest in the strength of Junk King and the city of Houston.

“We weren’t looking for a franchise, but with our background in removal, recycling and reuse, Junk King’s approach struck a chord with us,” said Dillaplain. “When we got to Houston, we saw how starved customers were for a company to just give clients a window of time, show up and get the job done efficiently and effectively. Junk King not only exceeds this standard but provides the technology to help customers learn all the information they need before we even get there,” added Patel.

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 get a price estimate online and 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. The duo will continue serving the Katy, Woodlands and Kingwood communities. Patel and Dillaplain will also open a location in Katy by the end of the year, and have plans down the line to open two more in Woodlands and Kingwood.

“Vik and Adam have the exact mindset that we look for in our owners, and I’m confident that they will remain the trusted partners that customers in the northern suburbs of Houston have come to expect,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO and co-founder of Junk King Franchise Systems. “We know that Vik and Adam can expand upon the existing relationships and will drive the Junk King trucks of North Houston in the right direction.”

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.
