Plainfield, IL (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Spring-Green Lawn Care welcomed two new franchisees this month in the greater Charlotte, N.C. metro area. Ben Whitehouse of Fort Mill, S.C. is launching a new location, while Ric Chapman of Monroe, N.C. is a new franchisee who acquired part of an existing territory.
Whitehouse, whose new location will service the Fort Mill, S.C. and Pineville, N.C. areas, is a green industry veteran who owns his own independent lawn care company, Whitehouse Lawns. He became a Spring-Green franchisee in order to diversify his business portfolio, citing the company’s solid business model and extensive franchisee support system.
“I wanted to scale out my business more than I’ve been able to do on my own,” Whitehouse said. “Visiting the corporate office and seeing the way the different departments – marketing, business planning, the call center, and the corporate team as a whole – work together to make a strong, successful franchise drew me to Spring-Green.”
Ric Chapman purchased an existing franchise that serves Charlotte, N.C. as well as neighboring Matthews and Monroe. He had always been passionate about lawn care, so when he decided to open his own business, Spring-Green was the natural choice. He opted for buying an existing location over starting his own from scratch because he saw a solid opportunity for growth in the local market.
“Buying an existing franchise made sense – it’s a strong business that’s well-established in the Charlotte area. Plus, the support and assistance Spring-Green’s corporate team offers is unparalleled,” Chapman said. “I’m excited for the opportunity to expand this already-strong location.”
