How Much Does an Accelerated Waste Solutions Franchise Cost?

Emerging valet trash & junk removal franchise is an affordable investment opportunity with high potential returns

Starting a business doesn’t have to break the bank – in fact, with Accelerated Waste Solutions junk removal franchise you get two highly in-demand businesses for the price of one.

Our two businesses, Doorstep Details, which is one of the leading valet trash brands in the nation, and Junk Shot, our innovative trash hauling business, are perfectly complementary. While Doorstep Details focuses on the niche of concierge trash services for apartment complexes, Junk Shot serves the same customer at the other end of the spectrum by frequently clearing away the bulk furniture off site. Junk Shot also has the ability to serve far more than apartment complexes, as there is a constant need for junk hauling in both the residential and commercial sectors.

Both concepts are proven business models that have been in operation for over a decadeĀ  and while we are only beginning our journey into franchising, we’ve been rapidly growing since our founding. In 2020, AWS serves more than 20,000+ apartment doorsteps in over 20 states, including some of the biggest property management companies in the nation. We’ve proven that the demand for our services continues to increase, says Sherrod Hunter, COO and co-founder of AWS. We’ve worked hard to ensure that both businesses, because they’re complimentary, are affordable to entrepreneurs who are ready to start a business that is capable of making an impact. We’re looking for entrepreneurs who are highly-motivated, passionate and possess exceptional leadership skills to join our franchise family. We have the business model, the support infrastructure and the years of experience in growing this business to guide you through the process of growing your business. The time to invest in AWS is now.

The total cost to franchise with Accelerated Waste Solutions is $247,100. This cost includes both the Doorstep Details and Junk Shot businesses, and covers the entire cost of equipment, use of our proprietary technology, patented apps, franchise support and more. AWS offers generous territories of up to 250,000 people or 7,000 apartment complexes to ensure that you have the population necessary to own a thriving valet trash and junk hauling business.

While the territories are large, you only need to capture a small percentage of the apartment complexes in your area to own an enviable business. Because our business model is based on long-term contracts that result in recurring revenue streams, there is ample opportunity for growth.
