Conserva Irrigation, an irrigation system company committed to the principles of water conservation, is now seeking franchise candidates to expand its national footprint.
The company was founded in 2010 by Russ Jundt after he became troubled by the quantity of water wasted by a typical irrigation system. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicates that runoff and irrigation system waste may be as high as 1.5 billion gallons per day.
With more than 10 years of irrigation experience, Jundt founded Conserva Irrigation with help from Outdoor Living Brands.
Conserva Irrigation created the System Efficiency Score (SES), a proprietary process to audit irrigation systems that rated water efficiency based on a numerical scaled. The SES rating system is based on studies from the Irrigation Association and EPA. This system was designed to help homeowners understand how much water is being wasted as well as methods to reduce their water usage.
“Having witnessed the unbelievable amount of water that is wasted annually by inefficient sprinkler systems, Conserva Irrigation was created to help customers conserve water while also keeping their lawns and landscape material both healthy and green,” said Jundt. “We are excited to offer qualified entrepreneurs nationwide an opportunity to join the Conserva family and capitalize on the growing demand for water efficient irrigation systems in order to help preserve a limited national resource.”
Franchisees would work with Toro’s retrofit products including the Evolution controller, Precision Series spray nozzles and the T5 RapidSet rotors, which all are designed to reduce water consumption by 40 to 60 percent.
Conserva Irrigation also works with brand partners like SiteOne Landscape Supply and HindSite Software, providing franchisees with training, support and competitive savings on equipment and services. The company’s business model focuses on maintenance and service to produce strong gross profit and recurring revenue.
“Conserva Irrigation offers potential franchisees the unique opportunity to establish relationships with top brand names in the industry such as Toro, SiteOne Landscape Supply and HindSite Software,” said Jundt. “Our differentiated business model of professionalizing the irrigation industry through a nationally branded company coupled with our focus on service plans as a consistent revenue stream is a proven method to success.”
The irrigation company currently has 32 territories across the U.S. and has recently signed agreements for location in Houston, Texas, Scottsdale, Arizona, Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky, and Richmond, Virginia.
Conserva has a business model that is replicable and repeatable thanks to Outdoor Living Brand partnering with the company in 2012. Outdoor Living Brand offers franchise opportunities in several other outdoor living niches including Mosquito Squad and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives.
To continue its growth, Conserva is now seeking single- and multi-unit operators with varying experience levels, along with company seeking add-on business opportunities.
Those interested in the franchise should be willing to invest between $43,550 and $80,250. Conserva Irrigation is also offering incentives for veterans, multi-territory agreements or are an employee of an existing franchise.
