Values & History

When our Founder and CEO Brian Scudamore was 18, he invested $700 in an old pickup truck and founded the Rubbish Boys. Ten years later, Scudamore had changed the name of his Vancouver-based company to 1-800-GOT-JUNK? and secured the 1-800 phone number to begin franchising.

In February 2008, Scudamore was named the International Franchise Association's Entrepreneur of the Year and joined the ranks of Frederick DeLuca of Subway and Anthony DeSio of Mail Boxes, Etc., both previous winners. This prestigious award and countless others demonstrate that 1-800-GOT-JUNK? is the best system available in the franchise service industry today.

Everybody has junk but has difficulty getting rid of it. Just look in your local newspaper - there are countless ads for 'man with a truck'. This shows that the junk removal business is a fragmented industry in need of a national and trustworthy brand - that's where 1-800-GOT-JUNK? comes in.

As the world's largest junk removal business, we have enjoyed exponential growth and widespread recognition from the media since its inception in 1989. Our franchise system has been featured by some of the best-known outlets in media including:

  • Entrepreneur Magazine - ranked #1 in our category in 2008 and 2007
  • Fortune & Fortune Small Business Magazine

  • The Donny Deutsch Show
  • CNN

Our goal is to create a globally admired brand while helping you achieve your financial and professional goals.
