COVINGTON, LA, March 20, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ —
College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving®, the premier stress-free solution for moving and junk removal needs, welcomes its newest franchise in Covington, LA. The location opened its doors in March to provide the known five-star service of the award-winning brand. College HUNKS is a company that proudly offers franchise opportunities for veterans, and the Covington owners will join a prestigious group of veteran-owned College HUNKS.
Kane McAndrew and Kevin Henry will spearhead the success of the
Covington College HUNKS location as the newest franchise partners to join the HUNKS network. Prior to business ownership, McAndrew, an Army and Navy veteran of 25 years, worked as a physical therapist after retiring from the military in 2018, and Henry specialized in sales within the gas and oil industries.
“We initially looked to start a business for the flexibility and opportunity that comes with being an entrepreneur. We loved the idea of working for ourselves and building a team that can grow,” said McAndrew. “College HUNKS especially stood out to us as the entire process, from discovery to onboarding, was seamless and informative.”
The trained professionals of the newest College HUNKS location provide packing, moving, labor, junk removal, and donation pickup services for Covington and surrounding areas such as Mandeville, Madisonville, Slidell, and Hammond.
“Kane and Kevin bring the ideal attitude we seek in new partners: hardworking, personable individuals looking for opportunity and a way to make an impact on the communities they serve,” said
Nick Friedman Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS. “Just like this pair, those with experience in management, sales, coaching, and marketing, or military veterans have proven to excel with our business plan.”
An acronym for Honest, Uniformed, Nice, Knowledgeable, and Service, College HUNKS is a purpose-driven company that participates in various charitable programs with U. S. Hunger and Goodwill. It also promotes veteran entrepreneurship as veterans alone make up more than 10% of franchise owners at College HUNKS. McAndrew and Henry hope to carry on these values locally as they strive to establish relationships with different charities in the area with a veteran focus.
“HUNKS truly fit the strong set of core values we looked for,” added Henry, a Louisiana native himself. “We’re excited to establish our roots in the community, give back, and service the needs of the greater Covington area.”
The Covington College HUNKS is located at 19153 HiPark Blvd., Suite 5, Hammond, LA 70403. For more information, visit
