In the summer 1989, Brian Scudamore ran into a difficult summer job situation in the town of Vancouver, Canada. After taking note of an old junk-hauling truck rolling through a McDonald’s parking lot, he became motivated to found his own business. He first called his junk removal company “The Rubbish Boys” using the motto, “We’ll Stash Your Trash in a Flash!”
What first started as a way to get money for college rapidly changed into a distinctive franchise business of skilled junk removal. Since then, Scudamore’s business has expanded to roughly 200 locations across three different countries!
