A Unique Road to Success
In 1999, Mike and Misty Davis launched the inaugural 1-800-JUNKPRO branch (home-based at the time) in Wichita, KS. Unlike numerous entrepreneurial stories where the founder harbors a clear vision of the future, their narrative started in a contrasting manner. Both just 20 years old and lacking any formal business education, mentors, or a defined concept of what the company would become, Mike and Misty's initial goal was to earn some extra income to provide for themselves and their two beautiful daughters.As time went on, the business expanded and in 2006, a vision began to take shape. Together, they devoted themselves to learning and growing by seeking guidance from every available business mentor, attending seminars, consuming a library of business and leadership books (hundreds of books), and actively soliciting feedback from thousands of customers. They aimed to design the most efficient business processes and scalable systems, ultimately reaching the ambitious milestones of serving 1 million satisfied repeat customers, establishing 333 profitable locations, and reaching a remarkable $1 billion in revenue.
