Water Conservation Leader Continues Most Successful Year Ever With Signing of Three New Franchise Agreements.

RICHMOND, Va.Conserva Irrigation, the only national outdoor irrigation company founded on the concept of water conservation, announced today the addition of six new territories. While the pandemic has caused uncertainty across the country, Conserva Irrigation has continued to grow, signing three new franchisees to the system and expanding across Greater Denver, Colorado, Rochester and Mankato, Minnesota, and Greenville, South Carolina.

Conserva Irrigation’s expansion comes on the heels of a very successful first half of the year. Earlier this year, the smart irrigation leader added 14 new territories and seven new franchisees, while debuting in Utah, California, South Carolina and Indiana. With the addition of 20 territories year-to-date across seven states, Conserva Irrigation has now grown its footprint across nearly 100 territories in markets throughout the country.

“The coronavirus pandemic has had a lasting impact on small businesses in our country and we consider ourselves very fortunate to have sustained success during the economic downturn because of our strong company culture and recession-resistant franchise model. It’s because of our dedicated staff and talented franchisees that we’ve continued to grow amid turbulent times,” said Russ Jundt, founder of Conserva Irrigation. “We’re looking forward to continuing to support our existing franchise partners, adding new small business owners to our family and providing employment to those searching for an opportunity in irrigation.”

As a result of Conserva Irrigation’s sustained growth, the company recently jumped more than 1,400 spots in this year’s Inc. 5000 ranking, which lists companies based on their percentage of revenue growth from 2016 to 2019. In addition, Conserva Irrigation has experienced its highest sales months in June and July since the brand’s inception. With a successful track record and growing number of franchisees, Conserva Irrigation has remained nimble to sustain company growth and even launched a virtual franchisee training this year that includes in-depth videos showing franchisees how to use the irrigation equipment while maintaining social distancing requirements.

Conserva Irrigation is looking to expand further throughout the United States and is seeking single- and multi-unit operators with a range of corporate experience, as well as those looking for add-on or conversion business opportunities. Potential franchisee candidates should be willing to initially invest between $81,800 and $102,250. Incentives are also available for veterans, multi-territory agreements and those with existing businesses.

Water Conservation Leader’s Four-Week Workforce Development Program Prepares Trainees for Career in Irrigation.

RICHMOND, Va. — Conserva Irrigation, the only national outdoor irrigation company founded on the concept of water conservation, announced today the completion of its 2nd CareerTech Academy. Led by Conserva’s Jay Gray, an Irrigation Association certified and 30-year accredited member, the CareerTech Academy helps young men and women with little or no irrigation experience immediately find technician jobs upon course completion with a Conserva Irrigation franchised location.   

“This is one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history and we know that unfortunately many people have and will continue to lose their jobs as a result of COVID-19,” said Russ Jundt, founder & brand leader of Conserva Irrigation. “We’re fortunate to be in a situation where we are still hiring and looking for talented technicians to work in our franchised territories across the country. Our two-week CareerTech Academy allows us to quickly identify talent, teach trainees about the irrigation business and prepare them for a rewarding career as an irrigation technician. It’s exciting and we look forward to hosting more in the near future.”

For this particular training, in addition to the classroom training, Conserva’s CareerTech Academy trainees handled the inspection, service, system start up and repairs at Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, N.C. Local franchisee Dave Perfater hosted the trainees and permitted them to use vans and service customers in his market to learn the craft.

“Hosting young men and women looking for a jump-start to their irrigation career and teaching them the business has been one of the highlights of my time with Conserva,” said Perfater. “It means even more to me considering the current unemployment situation in our country. I congratulate our Academy graduates and look forward to seeing them succeed in the field very shortly.”

Conserva plans on conducting an additional two to three academies in 2020. Operating underneath the Outdoor Living Brands umbrella, Conserva Irrigation remains the only environmentally responsible irrigation company with a franchise business model focused on providing repair and maintenance practices for commercial and residential sprinkler systems.

Water Conservation Leader Signs Franchise Agreements to Expand in California, Indiana and South Carolina.

RICHMOND, Va. — Conserva Irrigation, the only national outdoor irrigation company founded on the concept of water conservation, announced today a successful beginning to 2020 – adding seven new territories in January. The brand will welcome three new franchisees to the system and will open territories in the following locations:

  • Pasadena, CA and Burbank / Glendale, CA
  • North Indianapolis, IN and Central Indianapolis, IN
  • North Charleston, SC, South Charleston / Hilton Head, SC and West Charleston, SC

With the addition of seven territories in three states, Conserva Irrigation has now grown to 91 territories in markets throughout the country and is building on its success generated in 2019. Last year, Conserva Irrigation began servicing homes in Washington state, northern New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina.

“We’re excited about the fast start to 2020 and are eager to begin servicing clientele in our seven new territories,” said Russ Jundt, founder of Conserva Irrigation. “Since launching our franchise program in 2017 as part of Outdoor Living Brands, we’ve welcomed like-minded entrepreneurs that recognize the importance of water conservation. Our 2020 pipeline is strong and it’s a privilege to watch our franchisees help address the water waste issues presented by typical irrigation systems, while they use our Conserva Irrigation business model to build an attractive business to achieve their career, lifestyle and financial goals.”

In addition to the dedication of Conserva Irrigation’s franchisees, much of the brand’s success can be credited to its proprietary process to audit irrigation systems. The “System Efficiency Score” rates the water efficiency of a system based on a numerical scale allowing for homeowners to understand how much water their sprinkler systems are wasting, as well as what improvements need to be made to reduce water consumption and lower water bills.

“It’s our dedication to reducing water waste that sets us apart. We feel strongly about this mission and we know our franchise system does, as well,” said Jundt. “Our clientele demands smart irrigation and we’re confident 2020 will be our most promising year since launching our franchising model.”

Conserva Irrigation remains the only environmentally responsible irrigation company with a franchise business model focused on providing repair and maintenance practices for commercial and residential sprinkler systems. The smart irrigation leader has quickly become one of the fastest-growing companies in the irrigation industry.

Conserva Irrigation is looking to expand further throughout the United States and is seeking single- and multi-unit operators with a range of experience levels, as well as those looking for add-on or conversion business opportunities. Potential franchisee candidates should be willing to initially invest between $29,000 and $87,250. Incentives are also available for veterans, multi-territory agreements and those with existing businesses or are an employee of an existing franchisee.
