The Foundr Podcast with Nathan Chan

33 years ago, Brian Scudamore was sitting in a McDonald’s drive-thru when he saw his future–a beat-up pickup truck filled with junk. Scudamore started a junk-hauling business to pay for college, but what was supposed to fund his education ended up inspiring him to drop out. Today, Scudamore’s transformed his junk hauling side hustle, 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, into a North American franchise business worth $600M. People told Scudamore that it was impossible to franchise his business, but he’s proven them wrong by expanding his model into other brands like WOW 1 DAY PAINTING and Shack Shine.


Listen to Brian and Nathan discuss:

  • Rebranding his business name to 1-800-GOT-JUNK?
  • Transitioning from a corporate to a franchise business
  • Expanding his model into WOW 1 DAY PAINTING and Shack Shine
  • How “The CEO Whisperer” Cameron Herold helped scale the business
  • The 3 types of entrepreneurship paths
  • The compounding growth of franchise businesses
  • His new book BYOB: Build Your Own Business, Be Your Own Boss
  • What Shaq taught him about franchising 
  • And much more franchise business advice…
