Orlando, Fla. (Dec. 12, 2012) - BungoBox, a plastic moving box rental company, has awarded a new franchise in Raleigh, bringing the total number of BungoBox franchises in Canada and the U.S. to 20.
BungoBox, founded in May 2009, rents reusable plastic boxes to save consumers time and money over traditional moving methods. The edgy and innovative company, with a slogan of “We Make Moving Less Sucky,” takes the hassle out of rounding of moving materials by delivering its stackable moving boxes to a customers’ doorstep. (A large box of about 2.5 cubic feet rents for $1.75 a week.) Once they’ve been unpacked, BungoBox picks them up at the new residence.
The new franchise was awarded to Raleigh resident Penn Nugent. After spending 14 years in the wealth management industry, he has decided to open a BungoBox franchise location that will initially serve the Triangle metro area, which has a population of about 1.5 million. “After deciding to focus back on my entrepreneurial desires, I did a lot of research around concepts and potential business partners,” he says. “I came across BungoBox, and it was the right fit.”
The franchise will be located in the North Raleigh area and will eventually service from the Central North Carolina Triad to the coast, which includes about 4 million people.
BungoBox is an innovative company that is transforming the traditional moving process. Committed to helping consumers save time and money with an eco-friendly alternative to cardboard boxes, BungoBox has 20 locations (19 franchise locations and one corporate location).
