Spring-Green Lawn Care will officially launch two new green industry franchise programs at the Green Industry and Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO) next month. The expo—taking place Oct. 24-26 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville—is the industry’s largest showcase for outdoor power equipment, lawn and garden products and light construction and landscape equipment.
Spring-Green’s new franchise ownership options are specifically designed for green industry professionals looking to diversify & convert the lawn and tree care portion of their business. The Green Associate Assistance Program—for qualified candidates who currently own or are employed by green industry businesses—applies up to $10,000 of the initial franchise fee toward start-up expenses designated or approved by Spring-Green. The Green Associate Roll-In Program—designed for qualified candidates who own independent green industry businesses that provide professional lawn and tree care services and want to convert that portion to a Spring-Green franchise—calls for a reduced royalty rate for the first 12 months of operation. Green industry businesses include landscape management professionals, landscape designers, irrigation/water management professionals and more. Green Industry professionals are also eligible for Spring-Green's Marketing Reinvestment Program which applies $10,000 of the initial franchise fee to marketing and advertising expenditures in the second full year of operation.We also want to welcome Russ Jacque to the Spring-Green Lawn Care team. He’s joined us as strategic business development manager and brings extensive franchise development experience to our team. Welcome aboard, Russ!
