Driven Landscapes in South Walpole, Massachusetts, is looking to grow by offering franchises. Operating under the Driven Landscapes brand, the franchise system will provide start-up assistance, a copy of Driven Landscapes’ confidential operations manual, marketing guidance and ongoing support, the company says.
“We’ve been developing our set of specialized and professional landscaping services over the years,” said Jonathan Orcutt, founder and president of Driven Landscapes. “Now we’re ready for more growth, and are seeking like-minded entrepreneurs who want to be in business for themselves, but who will appreciate not having to re-invent all the tools and systems we already have in place.”
The franchising initiative comes only five years after Orcutt founded Driven Landscapes. The company says it is recognized as a premier landscape company in the Northeast and is in the midst of one of its largest growth periods to date.
The franchise program will be rolled out across Massachusetts initially, with expansion efforts in New Hampshire, Connecticut and other states to follow.
“We believe we have the right products, services and philosophy to sustain our expansion goals,” Orcutt said. “As we expand through the addition of franchised locations, we expect our market position will only become stronger.”
Driven Landscapes provides lawn care and landscape management services to homeowners and businesses in and around Massachusetts.
