PLAINFIELD, Ill. – Spring-Green Lawn Care recently launched a new financing program for qualified green industry professionals.
Franchisees can now finance as much as 75 percent of the required initial investment required to start a franchise. Financing can be used for payments on vehicles, equipment, supply package, computer software, marketing and working capital. This program is designed to work in conjunction with the existing Spring-Green lease programs.
The green industry financing program is for qualified candidates who currently own or are employed by green industry businesses such as landscape management professionals, landscape maintenance companies, landscape designers, pest control companies, irrigation/water management professionals and others.
By partnering with Spring-Green Lawn Care, these owners can leverage the national brand presence and additional resources of a 36-year-old national company.
“We have met with a great number of successful, experienced green industry professionals who we believe would achieve the same success as Spring-Green Lawn Care owners,” said President James Young. “Loans under $150,000 are still very hard to come by, especially for start-ups. Offering financing to franchisees gives them one less hurdle to growing their business.”
The Green Associate Assistance Program applies up to $10,000 of the initial franchise fee toward start-up expenses designated or approved by Spring-Green, which may include the initial marketing campaign fee. The program is for qualified candidates who currently own or are employed by green industry businesses.
Spring-Green also offers a Green Associate Roll-In Program designed for qualified candidates who own independent green industry businesses that already provide professional lawn and tree care services and want to convert that portion of their business to a Spring-Green franchise while keeping their existing company. These franchise owners will pay a reduced royalty rate for the first 12 months of operation and are also eligible for the Green Associate Assistance Program.
