"Building a great franchise model has been our core focus. Now that it's done we're thrilled to offer an opportunity in a desirable industry with a niche that so many see as valuable. It's truly a rewarding time at DwellGreen."

DwellGreen Franchising, LLC was recently launched by DwellGreen, the leader in green residential and commercial building performance evaluations. In addition the company has signed its first franchise agreement for the Sarasota and Manatee counties, Florida territory with Kevin S. Drelich.
Founded in 2009, DwellGreen perfected their Building Performance Evaluation business model and evolved it into the viable and economically compelling franchise opportunity now being offered nationwide. As DwellGreen’s first franchisee, Mr. Drelich’s interest in the opportunity began over 6 months ago when he first inquired about working with the company. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies from Ramapo College of New Jersey, is a USGBC member and is completing his LEED certification. He begins with attending a 5 day initial training program at the DwellGreen Learning Center at company headquarters in Sarasota, FL to learn all of the day to day operational aspects of running a DwellGreen business.
Jim Majirsky, president of DwellGreen Franchising, said “Offering a business opportunity in such a desirable industry with our unique niche is very compelling and at current interest levels we project signing at least one new franchise a month through the next year. We are eager to start working with our first franchisees - It’s a truly rewarding and exciting time for DwellGreen.”
DwellGreen’s business platform was developed by a team of building and environmental science experts working with a management group of operations, marketing, sales, finance, IT and franchising professionals. During the 2 1/2 years spent developing, perfecting, and testing the services and operational programs a track record of success was fine-tuned with the local franchise model, leading to the roll-out of the national franchise opportunity today. DwellGreen expects that the same business accolades achieved with building owners, service providers, vendors, community representatives, environmental and green building organizations and local media are replicable and modeled for successful translation into any market in the United States.
The DwellGreen concept is the brainchild of John Lambie, an expert with over 35 years of experience in the fields of green buildings, solar energy, and sustainable community development. John’s accomplishments and awards are numerous and include earning the Florida Green Building Coalition’s award for developing the highest performing green building in the year 2008 as well as being appointed the Executive Director of the Florida House Institute For Sustainable Development, and was one of the founders of Sarasota’s Florida House project. Florida House was the very first totally sustainable housing initiative in the entire country. John is also a former adjunct professor in Environmental Studies at New College in Sarasota, Fl and a LEED Accredited Professional.
Mr. Lambie said that, “I view sustainable development as a process of continuous improvement. Under that paradigm of continuous improvement, our homes and communities can thrive and help restore healthy local watersheds and ecologies. It builds markets for products and services that strengthen local economies, increasing reliance on renewable resources, while improving efficiency, well-being, and quality of life. You can have a future that you like, by design or default. By design is better. It’s your future and your choice.”
Mr. Lambie developed the DwellGreen concept with business development professional Mat Horne. Both have also assisted 16 year franchise executive and company President Jim Majirsky in bringing DwellGreen to the franchise stage – Mr. Lambie as the building and environmental science advisor and trainer and Mr. Horne as Vice President of Franchising. “No other company in the energy or environmental field has a program as complete and unique as the DwellGreen Evaluation Process. We have carved a niche in the industry that is unmatched and our customers love it,” said Mr. Majirsky.
DwellGreen boasts a sophisticated, highly defined business opportunity with their unique Building Evaluation software process at its core. The process digs deep into how a building performs with regards to energy usage and savings, building science and environmental concerns, and green building initiatives with emphasis on the property owner’s personal goals. The evaluation reviews and analyses 100’s of performance points and creates a report that addresses all of the findings. Those findings are followed by a series of recommendations and provide an opportunity for the owner to connect with vetted service providers to obtain estimates and schedule retrofit projects right from the convenience of their home or office through their own computer. A scoring system also assists the owner with understanding how their building is performing and measures that performance against actual customer statistics with a zero energy building as the ultimate goal.
