Owner of the redbox+ Dumpsters waste management franchise in North Nashville opens up about what he loves about his business
Bob V was looking for a franchise opportunity with the competitive edge. When he came across the redbox+ Dumpsters franchise opportunity, he knew right away that he found his match.
“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.
