BELFOR Franchise Group Announces redbox+ Acquisition
ANN ARBOR, Mich.—August 12, 2021—BELFOR Franchise Group recently acquired redbox+, a leading waste management solutions company that offers the industry’s only combination dumpster roll-off and portable toilet containers for rent for commercial, industrial, and residential job sites. The redbox+ acquisition marks BELFOR’s 11th brand, strengthening its position in the residential and commercial services industry, according to a press release.
Setting redbox+ apart is its patented 2-in-1 roll-off container that comes with both a dumpster and a portable restroom. This unique offering provides construction, renovation, and restoration companies with a simple solution to keep their job sites clean and efficient. OSHA requires that toilets are provided for employees at all construction sites, which keeps the waste management services of redbox+’s nearly 300 franchise locations in high demand. Current and future redbox+ franchise owners nationwide will benefit from the strong support team and systems at BFG, a division of BELFOR Property Restoration (BELFOR), the world’s largest disaster restoration company.
“We are thrilled to welcome redbox+ to the BELFOR Franchise Group family,” said Sheldon Yellen, CEO of BELFOR. “Redbox+’s one-of-a-kind combination system—and the cost-savings it provides—has attracted contractors for over a decade. We’re proud and excited to have been chosen by redbox+ as the best partner, especially considering how well their core offerings complement the array of services our other brands provide. The addition of redbox+ strengthens our growing portfolio of industry-leading home services franchises by enabling us to meet the needs of even more customers and better serve the communities that need us most.”
Across the country, redbox+ currently operates thousands of roll-off trucks and containers hauling thousands of tons of waste daily for its customers. In addition to the 2-in-1 roll-off container, redbox+ also offers 20-, 30- and 40-yard containers, as well as a smaller, 10-yard container for consumer DIY and waste removal projects.
“Redbox+ offers a unique opportunity for franchisees interested in growing a business in a niche, in-demand industry,” said Patrick Kiessling, President of redbox+. “I have witnessed the evolution of the waste management industry over the past 10 years and truly see the value in franchising, which is why I am proud to join forces with BELFOR Franchise Group. Having the backing of respected industry leaders at BFG and BELFOR will help our current and future redbox+ franchisees meet and exceed their business goals.”
Exiting CEO Josh Skolnick added, “It’s been both exciting and rewarding to lead redbox+’s phenomenal growth in recent years, which has been fueled by our innovative offering and our passionate franchisees. Under the umbrella and stewardship of the BELFOR Franchise Group, I’m confident the future for redbox+ is brighter than ever.” Following the redbox+ acquisition, all locations will retain the redbox+ brand name and the company will continue to operate and conduct training out of its existing facility in St. Charles, Minn.
For more than a decade, BFG has empowered entrepreneurs to own businesses that are designed for growth by offering industry-leading training, support, and equipment; proven business models; and ongoing coaching and business development. Notably, BFG is the only residential and commercial services franchisor owned by an operating company, BELFOR, and franchisees across all 11 brands benefit from the strength of the growing network. This continued growth positions the organization to better serve its vast and diverse customer base.
