Paul Durant, one of 81 Franchise Owners, Honored for Franchise and Community Leadership by Independent Research Firm
August 06, 2020 // Franchising.com // BURLINGAME, Calif. - Junk King’s Paul Durant was named a 2020 Franchise Rock Star by Franchise Business Review, an independent market research firm that benchmarks franchisee satisfaction. Durant was selected from over 28,000 franchisees, representing more than 300 brands that have participated in Franchise Business Review’s research in the past 18 months.
After spending 29 years in corporate America managing steel distribution centers, Durant joined the Junk King family in October 2011. He opened Junk King Denver and saw an opportunity to help develop young people starting out in the working world. As Durant grew his staff, he created a mentoring and training program that focused on customer service which has earned his business many rave reviews. In February 2020, he opened his second location in Englewood, Colorado.
“It’s an incredible honor to be chosen as a Franchise Rock Star by the Franchise Business Review team,” said Durant. “This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Junk King team. They have provided me with an opportunity to be a mentor to younger employees as well as recycle and donate a large percentage of our work. Giving back to the community is deeply woven into our culture along with customer satisfaction. My team and I will continue to live by this philosophy in everything that we do.”
The Franchise Rock Stars recognized were nominated by their franchise brand leadership in one of eight categories as franchisees who set admirable examples when it comes to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community.
“There are so many success stories out there and thousands of inspiring franchise owners who are living their dreams of business ownership that it was incredibly difficult to narrow down the list,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “In the end, we chose individuals who are exceptional examples of achieving success through the franchise model and exemplify a strong work ethic and a real commitment to their business and community. We are thrilled to recognize these individuals as Franchise Rock Stars.”
