“I really felt that redbox+ Dumpsters had a unique business opportunity, with a competitive advantage when compared to other companies in the waste management industry,” Bob says. “Having a sales background, it felt like the perfect fit.”

Bob recently acquired a redbox+ Dumpsters location in north Nashville, Tennessee, marking his first opportunity in business ownership. In this wide-ranging interview, Bob talks about why the redbox+ Dumpsters model works, what sets the company apart for competitors, and why aspiring entrepreneurs should take a serious look at investing.

What attracted you to the redbox+ Dumpsters model?

When I was looking at business opportunities, I didn’t want to follow what everyone else was doing. I wanted an opportunity with great growth potential that offered solid margins, added revenue streams and had a unique platform.

Did you specifically look for a franchise opportunity?

I never set out looking for a franchise, but after researching and seeing how streamlined the business model is, I’m glad I went down this path. I would have had a difficult time in waste management without having any experience and taking on this endeavor without a clear blueprint for me to follow.

How stable is the waste management industry?

Trash will be here forever. And the industry has a lot of consumers and is only growing. So when you have a unique business that offers a service that is unprecedented in the industry, you’re able to set yourself apart from the others, because there is a lot of competition out there. But we’re able to distinguish ourselves from everyone else and show the true value of our services.

What sets redbox+ Dumpsters apart?

When I was researching redbox+ Dumpsters, I showed some friends who work in construction the brand’s concept – the idea of a portable toilet attached to a dumpster – and my friends were blown away; they thought it was the greatest idea. And now, all of our customers love the concept and see the value – not just from a worksite efficiency standpoint, but also the cost savings.

How would you describe the work-life balance at redbox+ Dumpsters?

In my previous job, I traveled quite a bit, almost half the year on the road, so spending more time with my family was important to me. And, just as important, I wanted something to pass onto my family, something we can all be excited about, build and grow, that is family-oriented.

What are your hopes for your business going forward?

I want to provide a quality and valued service to our customers, and grow our business and expand it across different markets throughout Middle Tennessee.

Why would you recommend redbox+ Dumpsters to other aspiring entrepreneurs?

We’re in an industry that is going to see a tremendous amount of growth, and this business model is truly recession-resistant. And, we’re an essential industry because our service doesn’t have an end in sight. On top of that, innovation is hard to come by in waste management, yet redbox+ Dumpsters is offering not only the ability to set yourself apart from the competition, but also be part of an industry that is experiencing growth.

Why redbox+ Dumpsters Franchise Stands Out in the Waste Management Industry

VP of Marketing discusses a waste management business investment

The redbox+ Dumpsters franchise story is very much the story of the American dream. What started out as a sketch on a notebook, redbox+ Dumpsters has since evolved into an industry innovator in the competitive and booming waste management industry. Over the years, redbox+ Dumpsters has built its name and reputation on a patented roll-off dumpster and portable toilet product, as well as best-in-class Kenworth trucks custom designed for redbox+ Dumpsters.

redbox+ franchise story

“Redbox+ Dumpsters is a site service solution for the construction world, as well as for residential use,” says Lyle Blanchard, Vice President of Marketing. “But really, redbox+ Dumpsters is the only company that offers a combination portable restroom, roll-off container in America today.”

In this wide-ranging interview, Blanchard talks about why redbox+ Dumpsters thrives in the waste management industry, the brand’s specialized products and why now is the time to invest.

What sets redbox+ Dumpsters apart in the waste management industry?

Really, our patented portable restroom and roll-off container gives us a huge advantage because any work site is going to need both of those services. We’re providing a worker-focused site service; you get the restroom, and you’ve got the roll-off container. It’s really just a matter of efficiency; you don’t need to leave the site to use the restroom or call another company to rent one. It’s all right there.

And you also put a major emphasis on customer care, right?

Absolutely. We’re locally owned and operated in every one of our locations throughout the United States. And so you actually are talking to an owner when you call, unlike some of the mega-waste industry companies, where you are going to be routed throughout the entire call system. With us, you’re going to talk to somebody who has a vested interest in serving you and your project.

And redbox+ Dumpsters also just rolled out new Kenworth trucks. Can you talk about that?

Oh yeah! They are outfitted to be able to handle all of our product lines. We’re rolling state-of-the-art equipment from Kenworth, and we actually have some concierge programming that’s in place with Kenworth dealerships throughout the country, and that’s another benefit as well.

How do you become a top-performing redbox+ Dumpsters franchisee?

You have to be someone who understands that in the service industry, customer service counts. The ideal franchise candidate should really have a commitment to the customer care standard – someone who will take a late phone call and react to it in a positive way. We’re in an industry that’s plagued with subpar service in many ways. And I think one of the things that separates redbox+ Dumpsters is that we are there when you need us, no matter when.

What are some of the advantages of being part of the BELFOR Franchise Group?

I’m a big believer that people matter. And I think the team that came through the BELFOR Franchise Group is high on ethics, and they do what they say they’re going to do. And also, the ability to take a family approach across all the different services that come out of the BFG brands. I think that’s a value that we never had before, without a doubt. But again, ultimately, it’s people. They’re pretty fantastic.

Why is now a good time to invest in redbox+ Dumpsters?

Because people have an opportunity to build a business. With all the benefits now with BFG, it’s a totally different opportunity. It’s a better, bigger opportunity, without a doubt.
