Wade Herndon is betting on Spring-Green Lawn Care to greatly expand his customer base. The 20 year green industry veteran used the Green Associate Roll In Program to add a Spring-Green Lawn Care franchise to his business portfolio in order to reach more residential customers seeking lawn and tree care. Herndon’s Spring-Green Lawn Care business opened its doors on January 1, 2014 and will serve Horry and Georgetown counties in South Carolina.

“I have owned a franchise before and was looking to expand my business in that mold, and Spring-Green was a perfect fit,” Herndon said. “I am excited to be joining their ranks.”

Spring-Green delivers traditional and organic lawn and tree care services to residential and commercial clients nationwide. A recognized leader in the professional lawn and tree care industry, Spring-Green has been beautifying neighborhoods and communities for more than 36 years.

The Green Associate Roll-In Program is a fast-track program designed for qualified candidates who own independent green industry businesses that already provide professional lawn and tree care services and would like to convert that portion of their business to a Spring-Green franchise while keeping their existing company intact.    

Herndon has owned Evergreen Landscape for 20 years. He decided to expand his business in order to get back in the residential market for maintenance and landscape, as well as having two complementary businesses which round out his green industry business portfolio. He will be joined in this business by his wife Tracy, as well as their five children, some of whom also have green industry experience. He says he was impressed by Spring-Green’s excellent reputation and solid franchise systems.

“I spoke with many local vendors while researching the company and heard nothing but good things,” he said. “It’s a good, solid company that I’m glad to be a part of.”

“We are excited to add Wade to our Spring-Green family,” said James Young, Spring-Green Lawn Care’s president. “He is a true industry veteran, and he is a welcomed addition to our growing Spring-Green family of green industry business owners.”

Herndon is looking forward to the launch of his Spring-Green Lawn Care business in 2014 and hopes to expand his territory in proportion to customer response in the next three to five years.
