Franchise Canada Magazine has highlighted two of our franchisees and we couldn’t be more proud. The magazine showcases the relationship between two millennial’s reaching success through hard work, determination, and friendship.
Justin Prittie, Franchisee of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® KITCHENER, CAMBRIDGE, WATERLOO and Cotie Drinkwater, Franchisee of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® ST. CATHARINES NIAGARA, Ontario location, shed light on who we really are as a company. As well, their reasons for investing their time and money into our franchise. According to Cotie Drinkwater:
“The company culture was something I’d never seen before. I had never seen so many people so happy to be at work.”
Cotie also explains how our company created a culture where we encourage everyone to help each other. He says,
“They promote a culture that encourages you to reach out to anyone, franchisees included. I’m pretty friendly with all of the Canadian franchise partners and I talk to many of them every month. It would be unwise for me not to. Communication opens doors and creates new business connections.”
Justin Prittie couldn’t agree more and explains that they help each other by providing honest opinions. Justin and Cotie were two close friends in their early 20’s, when starting their successful businesses. Despite the fear, judgment, and nerves in starting their own business at such a young age, they relied on their entrepreneurial skills and our home office. Our home office and training supported them all the way, as Kristin Di Tomasso writer of Millennials in Franchising says,
“The learning part came easy for Drinkwater, in large part due to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s comprehensive training process. Onboarding franchisees attend the company’s international home office in Lansing, Michigan, where they are given practical and hands-on knowledge at Stick Man University. Topics ranging from human resources to sales training are covered along with courses in how to safely navigate a residential and commercial space and how to efficiently pack a truck.”
To further prove that we are not just movers but Movers Who Care®, the magazine illustrates that one of the ways we give back to our communities is by partnering with The Mikey Network. All of our trucks across Canada carry defibrillators. As well, all of our employees are trained to use them whenever necessary.
We are proud of our millennial franchisee’s, who showcase that age is just a number and success will only happen through hard work, determination, and perseverance.
Congratulations Justin and Cotie, for illustrating who we are as a company and more importantly as a family.
