Spring-Green adds franchisees in Texas, Virginia, Pennsylvania

August 30, 2013 -  By

Spring-Green Lawn Care added three new franchisees in the month of August:

  • Frank Garrett of Pilot Point, Texas;
  • Chad Shaylor of Cogan Station, Pa.;and
  • Barry Robinson of Fredericksburg, Va.

Garrett and Barry enrolled in Spring-Green’s Green Associate Roll-In Program, a fast track program designed for candidates who own independent Green Industry businesses with pre-existing lawn and tree care division. The program allows candidate to convert the division to a Spring-Green franchise while keeping the existing company intact. Shaylor bought an existing business that has been in operation for 10 years. The new owners will complete their training at Spring-Green’s headquarters in early September.

All three have owned and operated Green Industry businesses for a number of years.

Garrett owns Federal Pest Solutions in Dallas. Since opening in 2001, he has expanded beyond traditional commercial and residential pest control by customer demand. “My residential clients began requesting fertilization and lawn pest control,” Garrett said. “With Spring-Green, I now will be able to offer even more options.”

Shaylor has been involved in the business since 1997. He opened Shaylor’s Lawncare in 2004 as a mowing operation. The company now offers landscaping, hardscaping and pond services.

“A long-time employee of the local Spring-Green will be joining me as I expand my business,” Shaylor said. “Our customers will continue to receive the same great service as we head into our fall lawn care season.”

In 1995, Robinson decided to combine his 25 years of experience in the pest control industry with his entrepreneurial spirit to form AAA Pest Pros. What started as a home-based business, AAA Pest Pros grew quickly and in 2002, several major changes were made. The name was changed to CSI of Virginia, and the company began offering lawn care and home inspections.

“We have been providing our customers with services such as weed control, aeration, and lawn fertilization for a number of years, but I knew we were not maximizing our potential,” Robinson said. “I was so impressed with Spring-Green’s operations, specifically the franchisee-focused marketing efforts, that I knew it was what I needed to take my business to the next level.”
