It isn’t everyday a business crosses the threshold from getting established to total success story.
On Tuesday afternoon at the Factory in Franklin, “residential friendly” dumpster rental company Bin There Dump That celebrated the occasion of its 100th franchise, which life-long Williamson County resident Joey Bossier just so happened to open.
Over pulled pork, potato salad and beer, wine and soda, executives from the Canada-based company congratulated and celebrated alongside Bossier, other franchise owners- from as far away as Santa Fe, New Mexico- and Williamson Inc members. The county chamber hosted the event.
When the head honchos asked Bossier, who now runs three Middle Tennessee Bin There Dump That franchises, how he would like to celebrate he told them he’d be happiest if they could raise money for charity.
“They asked me how I would like to celebrate, and I came back with, let’s do something and raise some funds and donate them,” he said.
So, after passing the basket around to all their franchise owners, the company kicked the celebration off by presenting a $5,000 check to Tucker’s House, a Spring Hill non-profit that provides home renovation and retrofitting to families with disabled children.
“Oh, my gosh, I was just blown away,” Sunny Rosanbalm, Executive Director/Founder Tucker’s House, said about the donation.
Bossier, who got his first Bin There Dump That franchise in 2012, has provided Tucker’s House with all it’s dumpsters, free of charge, for their work. Since they did 30 projects last year and already have applications for 35 this year, it is no small act by Bossier.
Home renovations, re-roofing jobs and remodeling contracts fill up the client list for Bossier, who has a son, two step-daughters and five grandchildren.
“We call our business residential-friendly dumpsters,” he said. “They are configured so that even our biggest 20-yard dumpster fits in the the same space as a mid-sized minivan.”
With 39 Canadian and 61 U.S, locations, Bin There Dump That leadership definitely felt the century mark worth some recognition.
“Only about 20 percent of franchisors ever reach 100, so this is a huge milestone,” John Ferracuti, COO Bin There Dump That, said. “We have franchises from Fort Meyers, Florida all the way up up Anchorage, Alaska.”
They started in Canada 12 years ago, he said, and opened their first U.S. franchise in 2011.
As for Bossier, his three franchises cover a territory spreading from Columbia to Gallatin, and from Fairview to Lebanon.
