Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
Scotts LawnService, a recognized industry leader in home lawn-care service, has signed its newest franchisee, Michael Wharton, of Dothan, Alabama. Wharton expects his location to open in spring, 2014, just in time to help the people of Southern Alabama/ Eastern Georgia get ready for the green of summer. According to Wharton, “The people in this area pride themselves on having a well-manicured lawn, and the competition is fierce among neighbors. The Scotts brand of products is very popular and very much sought after.”
Wharton has a degree in business management and is currently a small business owner, so he feels confident about his ability to succeed with this newest endeavor. Mr. Wharton is planning to be, not only the owner of his franchise, but the operator as well, and says, “My hopes for my Scott's franchise is success, success, success. I realize in order to accomplish this I must work and learn every aspect of this franchise, and make a commitment to my customers--customer service is priority. I believe a standard of excellence must be established in all that you do, and I believe I must lead by example, from personal appearance to knowledge of all of the Scotts’ products. My team must always be knowledgeable and professional at all times.”
“Scott's is a proven, successful company,” Michael Wharton says. “I figure that with my business experience and self motivation, this will be a golden opportunity for me. I’m really grateful to Jim Miller for giving me this opportunity to be a part of the Scotts’ family and I’m excited to get started.” Jim Miller, Director of Franchising added “Mike is an impressive individual, his military background and business experience makes him an ideal fit for SLS and my team is looking forward to working with him.”
