The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchise opportunity for Saskatchewan is very exciting as it will include both Saskatoon and Regina offering a larger than typical trade area population.. The franchise could be located in either Saskatoon or Regina with a satellite location being established in the alternate community. The objective will be to provide moving and storage services for residences in both cities. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® technology platforms will make this goal a reality.
The economy of Saskatoon has been associated with potash, oil and agriculture (specifically wheat), resulting in the moniker “POW City”. Various grains, livestock, oil and gas, potash, uranium, gold, diamond, coal and their spin off industries fuel the economy. The world’s largest publicly traded uranium company, Cameco, and the world’s largest potash producer, PotashCorp, have corporate headquarters in Saskatoon. Saskatoon has been recognized as one of Canada’s top economic growth hot spots. Another of Saskatoon’s nicknames, “Hub City”, refers to its ideal central location within Canada for distribution and logistics.
Regina is the capital city of Saskatchewan. The city is the second-largest in the province and a cultural and commercial centre for southern Saskatchewan. In 2013, Regina was named the 6th best Canadian mid-sized city in which to live by Money Sense magazine.
In recent years, Saskatchewan’s agricultural and mineral resources have come into new demand, and it has entered a new period of strong economic growth and prosperity. The current estimate of the Regina CMA population, as of 1 July 2014, according to Statistics Canada is 237,800.
