Event description

Description

1-800-GOT-JUNK? began with a 19-year-old college dropout, a $700 pickup truck and an idea.


Founder & CEO Brian Scudamore found a way to professionalize the junk industry and became a full-time “junk guy” from a young age. With a strong focus on customer service, the company was able to carve out a niche in the market and scale via franchises across Canada, the U.S. and even Australia.

Now 30 years later, with $300M+ in yearly revenue, they’ve scaled into other home servicing brands, including a one-day painting service, a moving company and a window washing business.

The company is proof that you don't need to invent something completely new, you just have to make what consumers already do better by designing experiences that make everyday life easier. Join us as we dig into the entrepreneurial ups and downs of starting a consumer-focused business from scratch, from the junk guy himself.

Speaker

Brian Scudamore, Founder & CEO,

O2E Brands, 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

@BrianScudamore

Serial entrepreneur and author Brian Scudamore has always taken the road less travelled. At just 19 years old, he pioneered the industry of professional junk removal with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, turning a chore people avoid into an exceptional customer service experience. Then he scaled that success into three more home-service brands, WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, You Move Me, and Shack Shine under the O2E Brands banner.
