Syracuse, N.Y. – Plowz & Mowz, a company that helps homeowners find landscapers and snow removal contractors through an app, raised $5 million in new funding. According to The Post-Standard newspaper in Syracuse, the company plans to double its workforce in a move to downtown Syracuse, New York.

Wills Mahoney, founder of Plowz & Mowz, told The Post-Standard the new funding is coming from a “very large strategic investor” who wishes to remain anonymous. According to The Post-Standard, the funding will allow the company to enter four to six new markets next year and invest in technology that will move the company closer to its goal of being a leader in outdoor home services.

The company launched in 2013 and to date it operates in 20 markets, with its biggest ones being in Syracuse, Cleveland, Boston and Minneapolis. Homeowners use the Plowz & Mowz smartphone app to contact landscapers and snow removal companies for on-demand services.
