Jay Herman Brings Nation’s First and Fastest-Growing Tree Service Franchise to Rochester and Surrounding Territories

Monster Tree Service, the nation’s first and fastest-growing tree service franchise, is expanding to Rochester, NY. Recently featured by SUCCESS Magazine, Thrive Global, and Franchise Times, the Monster Tree Service franchise continues to build on its rapid three-year franchise system growth.

Businessman Jay Herman has recently purchased the rights to three Monster Tree Service territories in Rochester, New York. Herman was awarded the territories in February and is excited to launch soon.

Herman, a Rochester native, spent several years working in Connecticut, Texas and Massachusetts before returning to Rochester as he climbed the corporate ladder. Now, after a successful career in technology, Herman is excited to be a small business owner and entrepreneur in the city where he grew up.

“I’m very excited to be a part of the Monster Tree Service family,” says Herman. “I’m glad to be working in my hometown, and I’m eager to provide quality services to my community. Monster Tree Service is much more than just tree or limb removal. We proudly offer a full suite of services like plant healthcare, tree planting and tree maintenance. I can’t wait to get started!”

Josh Skolnick, CEO and Founder of Monster Tree Service, believes Herman is a great fit as the company’s newest New York-based franchise partner.

“First, Jay knows the area really well. He already has ties to the community, and that inside knowledge will give him a leg up as he starts out,” says Skolnick. “He also brings a wealth of business experience to the Monster Tree Service franchise. He is a hard-worker and will be a tremendous asset to our brand. He’s exactly the kind of business-savvy entrepreneur we want on our team!”

Monster Tree Service is the only franchise tree company capitalizing on the under-served $17 billion tree service industry. Monster Tree Service has achieved consistent, year over year, 5 percent growth since 2009, resulting in a $10+ million business. Because it’s a high-upside opportunity, and a recession-proof business, Monster Tree Service expects to achieve $100 million in sales in 2021.

“I am excited to be a part of the growing Monster Tree Service franchise,” says Herman. “I’ve always wanted to be a business owner, but with franchising I don’t have to start from scratch. I chose Monster Tree Service specifically because of the people. During my selection process, I spoke with several brands, and none impressed me like Monster Tree Service. The team is full of genuine, driven individuals who I feel confident have my best interest at heart. I was blown away by the positive, can-do attitude of the team. That, paired with a proven business model, made my decision easy.”
