ORLANDO, Fla. – Building on a year of double-digit growth in its network of franchise locations, U.S. Lawns announced that four new franchisees have joined the company’s more than 240 commercial landscape-management franchises.
 
U.S. Lawns, currently celebrating its 25th year in business, has added 31 franchisees since summer 2010 and operates in all 48 contiguous states.

The newest group of U.S. Lawns franchisees recently completed training at U.S. Lawns’ Home Office in Orlando. The training consisted of classroom and field training in all areas of commercial landscape management. As well, U.S. Lawns regional franchise advisors were assigned to each owner-operator and will work closely with them during the start-up months and provide ongoing, one-on-one training in both business planning and agronomics.

“These franchisees are key additions to increase our imprint as a national commercial landscape-management network,” said Ken Hutcheson, U.S. Lawns president. “We will continue to support and guide them as they develop and provide the top-quality commercial landscape-maintenance services U.S. Lawns has built its reputation on nationwide.”

U.S. Lawns’ new franchisees are:

  • Jeff and Justin Weinzierl, Colorado Springs, Colo.
  • Ron and Blake Gordon, Frankfort, Ky.
