Milwaukee residents Justin Coenen and Brian Jones are some of the newest franchise owners for College Hunks Hauling Junk and College Hunks Moving.
Justin is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He didn’t initially set out to own his own company when he started school, but like many working in today’s unpredictable corporate environment, he yearned to be his own boss.
When his current business partners Alex & Joe asked if he would be interested in partnering for another business venture he knew it was a great opportunity that couldn’t be passed up.
Having a degree in business has helped the success of both companies. He will tell you he chose the brand College Hunks because he enjoys doing work that can be considered ‘fun’ while at the same time being able to provide a service directly to local customers and helping many future college graduates and other “students of life” be better prepared for the workforce and their future! We are here to build leaders while we move the world!
Brian, on the other hand, has always wanted to own his own business since he was a kid. His Dad owned his own business for a long time and it was always his dream to achieve that level of independence.
Brian’s first job was in a restaurant working with his Mom as a bus boy in West Bend, WI. He immediately grew a passion for helping people and found great pride in making people happy. At 18 he moved to Milwaukee for schooling and more opportunities. After studying at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee he landed a position at a WI owned bank in a non-customer facing role. The time spent there reminded him that his real dream and passion weren’t being pursued and left him with a deep desire for something else.
As an avid fan of Shark Tank, the episode with College Hunks Hauling Junk had stuck in his mind. Nick and Omar were clearly smart guys that really cared about their company. In early 2016 Brian was added to the ownership group that runs the Milwaukee delivery service The Meal Mobile. They decided it was time to expand their services and open a College Hunks Franchise here in Milwaukee August 1st.
Brian’s Grandpa always told him, “No matter what you do in life, no matter your role, strive to be the absolute best.” College Hunks Milwaukee strives every day to be the best Junk Hauling and Moving service in the Milwaukee area.
