About Junkyard Empire
When it comes to father son bonding Bobby and Andy Cohen know a thing or two. For decades they’ve managed a lucrative junkyard business while managing not to let their old school versus new school ways permanently scrap their relationship. Having defied the odds the Cohens are back giving viewers another entertaining glimpse into their hot-blooded professional lives. Cohen Recycling just outside Washington, D.C. cycles through more than one million pounds of twisted metal and shredded steal every year. Each Junkyard Empire episode finds Andy, a jack of all trades with a keen eye for seeing a high-priced payoff in automotive rubble, juggling the demands of the family junkyard with managing his own automotive service shop and used car dealership. If that weren’t enough to fill his days, Bobby, who started the junkyard nearly 50 years ago, always has conflicting opinions about how Andy runs things. Working with his dad isn’t always easy and tensions overheat when Bobby’s easy going ways depart from Andy’s high-pressure risk taking style. But when the sun sets on the yard each day Andy and Bobby know how to use every greasy part, banged up car or overrun engine to keep the family empire thriving.
