Conserva Irrigation signs six new franchise agreements
Conserva Irrigation experienced strong growth in 2017 and continues its aggressive national expansion into 2018 with the signing of six new franchise agreements. Conserva signed a total of 35 new franchise agreements since beginning franchising in June of 2017 and expanded into new markets including Houston, Lexington, Richmond, and Scottsdale. Additionally, Conserva franchisees donated $17,500 to the Wyland Foundation in 2017, an organization dedicated to helping children and families around the nation rediscover the importance of healthy oceans and waterways.
Not showing any signs of slowing down, Conserva has started off the new year strong with signed franchise agreements for territories in Fort Worth, St. Louis, Long Island, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Richmond. As Conserva continues its expansion in 2018, the brand is targeting markets such as Southern and Northern California, Seattle, and Denver for growth.
“In 2017, we were thrilled to begin sharing our mission and business model with entrepreneurs who are also committed to helping decrease the waste of one of our most limited natural resources,” said Russ Jundt, founder of Conserva Irrigation. “Our franchisees come from all different professional backgrounds, and as we continue to expand across the country in 2018, we remain dedicated to providing high quality service, the latest technology, and the concept of water conservation to deliver the best irrigation system service in the industry.”
Conserva Irrigation was founded in 2010 by Jundt, who became increasingly disturbed by the tremendous amount of water wasted by the typical irrigation system. As a solution to this problem, Jundt developed a proprietary process to audit irrigation systems called the “System Efficiency Score” to rate the water efficiency of a system based on a numerical scale. Conserva’s signature “SES” rating system is based on studies published by the Irrigation Association and the Environmental Protection Agency. This systemized approach allows homeowners to understand how much water their sprinkler systems are wasting as well as what improvements to make in order to reduce water consumption and lower water bills.
To fuel Conserva Irrigation’s growth, the company is seeking single- and multi-unit operators with a range of experience levels, as well as those looking for add-on or conversion business opportunities. Potential franchisee candidates should be willing to invest between $43,550 and $80,250. Incentives are also available for veterans, multi-territory agreements and those with existing businesses or are an employee of an existing franchisee.
