JDog Brands, the Veteran-founded and focused parent franchisor of JDog Junk Removal & Hauling and JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care, has been selected by Balfour Beatty Communities, a leading residential real estate investment and management company, to provide junk removal and floor/carpet cleaning services to its military housing communities located across the United States.
"Given the size and scope of many of these military housing communities, Balfour Beatty Communities relies on qualified contractors to provide targeted services," said Kevin Kopa, president of JDog. "We are one of their approved vendors, and we provide services through our JDog Junk Removal & Hauling and JDog Carpet Cleaning & Floor Care businesses."
The two companies initially connected through a JDog franchisee working for Balfour Beatty Communities at their military housing community located at Fort Stewart, Georgia. After a decision-making process with Balfour Beatty's contract management team, the JDog network was approved as a national vendor for Balfour Beatty Communities.
For franchisees, the relationship presents significant opportunity, as military housing accommodates a substantial number of families and sees a relatively high turnover rate as troops are moved in and out as duty stations change. Balfour Beatty Communities is able to notify JDog franchisees ahead of time that there will be a space in need of junk removal or floor care, and the business owners can plan accordingly to complete the service and help prepare the space for future residents in a timely manner.
"As one of the nation's largest providers of military housing, we're proud to work with JDog Brands, a Veteran-founded business with 90% Veteran franchisees, in support of our 56 military housing communities," said Brian Morris, Contracts Manager at Balfour Beatty Communities. "There is a high volume of work that often needs to be completed in a short span of time in our military communities, and our partnership with JDog helps us keep up with demand and provide high-quality service to our residents."
