Don Elliott Brings Nation’s First and Fastest-Growing Tree Service Franchise to Knoxville, Maryville, Alcoa, Oak Ridge and Surrounding Areas

“I was looking for a new business that’s internet-proof, has long-term sustainability, and is not a fad,” said Elliott.

Monster Tree Service, the nation’s first and fastest-growing tree service franchise, is expanding in Tennessee. 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.

Business entrepreneur Don Elliott has purchased the rights to a Monster Tree Service Territory in Knoxville, Tennessee, covering Knoxville, Maryville, Alcoa, Oak Ridge and surrounding areas. Elliott is already enjoying a steady stream of clients and plans to add two more crews in 2020 to meet the needs of the community and his growing business.

Elliot is no stranger to franchising. He currently owns 56 Great Clips hair salons throughout Tennessee, North Carolina and Kentucky. He’s looking forward to having similar success in a new industry and the challenge of growing his Monster Tree Service franchise.

“I was looking for a new business that’s internet-proof, has long-term sustainability, and is not a fad,” said Elliott. “Monster Tree Service has those key qualities and more. I also like that I won’t have to work nights or weekends — unless a customer has an emergency on their property.”

Josh Skolnick, CEO and Founder of Monster Tree Service, is confident Elliott will be a tremendous asset to the Monster Tree Service franchise.

“Don is an ideal Monster Tree Service franchisee,” says Skolnick. “He has a solid franchise business background and an incredible work ethic. He has a knack for understanding the needs of his community, and I am confident he will thrive as the newest member of the Monster family. We could not be more excited to have Don 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 by 2021.

“Our goal is to be the go-to professionals for residential tree service in the Knoxville market,” said Elliott. “The Monster Tree Service equipment has less impact on a client’s property and allows us to provide an exceptional level of customer service. We’re also excited to offer the community our wide array of services, including tree removal, tree trimming, storm damage clean-up and more.”
