A Franchise Fee Is A Waste Of Money

For example, at Bin There Dump That, our franchise fee entitles new operators to utilize not just our name, but our proven business model and our national advertising and marketing efforts. It also gives operators territorial exclusivity, empowering them to grow this new business opportunity in their own communities, without worrying about other people taking away their turf or their customers. You also receive initial training and ongoing support from our franchise’s leaders.
