The company names two franchisees to its Hall of Fame and gives another a President’s Award.

| December 9, 2011

ORLANDO, Fla. – Franchise owners in Kentucky and New Jersey are the newest members of U.S. Lawns’ Hall of Fame and an owner-operator from South Carolina is the latest recipient of the President’s Award.

Adam Neville, who owns two franchises in Louisville, Ky., and Joshua Gamez, who owns seven franchises in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida, earned entry into the Hall of Fame because of their businesses’ outstanding growth and dedication to the mission of U.S. Lawns.

Steven Keys, owner-operator of eight franchises in South Carolina and Georgia, received the company’s President’s Award. Keys is a U.S. Lawns Hall of Fame member.

Criteria for selection to the Hall of Fame include adhering to high ethical standards and committing to the training and development of high-performing staff. To earn the President’s Award, a franchisee must consistently meet or exceed all U.S. Lawns standards for customer satisfaction and revenue while spending time mentoring and leading other franchisees in the system to success.

“Adam, Joshua and Steven exemplify the leadership qualities we expect of our franchisees,” said Ken Hutcheson, U.S. Lawns president. “Their businesses are wonderful examples of the type of professional and financial success possible within our franchise structure.”

The three franchisees were honored during U.S. Lawns’ Annual Conference in Orlando, Oct. 6-8.
