Chris Grandpre, chairman and CEO of Outdoor Living Brands, parent company and franchisor of Conserva Irrigation said, “being named to this prestigious list is recognition of the hard work and strong client service provided by our dedicated Conserva Irrigation franchisees, their teams and our corporate team. We aim to stay on the Inc. list and continue our strong growth year over year as more consumers and businesses recognize the need for professional irrigation system maintenance and repair services in a water-efficient manner.”

Scott Zide, president and COO of Outdoor Living Brands said that the company ended 2018 with sales of $6.7 million and is on target to double sales again this year. Zide said the company is working to have over 100 operating locations at the start of the season next year.
