Meet Omar Soliman, the Co-Founder and CEO of College Hunks Hauling Junk, a junk hauling and moving business headquartered in Tampa with 100 franchised locations in the United States and Canada and 2,000 employees nationwide.
College Hunks Hauling Junk started in Washington DC, but even at the very beginning Soliman knew that the company would soon be needing a new home that could house more employees. Soliman knew that College Hunks was not only a moving company, but a marketing and technology first and foremost. Their dreams of opening a large call center weren’t feasible in Washington DC. When conducting a nationwide search for their new home, Tampa was a natural choice. Great weather, low cost of living and an exceptional talent force cinched the deal and College Hunks moved to Tampa Bay in 2008.
“It was one of the greatest decisions we ever made.” Said Soliman.
He raves about the culture of the area, calling it stress-free living, bragging that Tampa is a place with great restaurants, sports teams and an easy commute to anywhere you might want to go. Another way to put it?
“It’s a small town vibe with big city amenities.”
