Local Entrepreneur to Lead Eco-Friendly Junk Removal Service in Utah’s Capital
SALT LAKE CITY – 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 Salt Lake City location with local entrepreneur, Luke Wren.
Wren comes with more than 15 years of experience in running businesses and a degree in economics from the University of Utah. Before Junk King, he managed a consumer electronics company in the Unites States and New Zealand. Wren handles day-to-day operations for Junk King Salt Lake City in partnership with his brothers, Doug and Tim Wren.
“I know how to run and manage a team in order to create a successful business. I’m not someone who enjoys sitting at a desk all day. I find the most success when I can go out and have face-to-face interactions with people in the community” said Wren. “Junk King gives me the opportunity to do that while also growing and expanding a business doing innovative and environmentally friendly work.”
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.
“Luke joins Junk King with an extensive knowledge of what it takes to run a business – keeping the employees’ best interest in mind and providing a quality customer experience,” said Michael Andreacchi, CEO and co-founder of Junk King Franchise Systems. “We know he is going to continue to grow Junk King Salt Lake City’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.
