Conserva Irrigation, Richmond, Virginia, announced that John Dooley opened a new franchise location on March 7, serving the greater Birmingham, Alabama area.

Known as Conserva Irrigation of South Birmingham, Dooley will lead the team of irrigation designers and technicians in repair, maintenance and installation of home and commercial irrigation systems.

“We are excited to have John as one of our newest franchisees,” says Jake Mathre, director of franchise operations for Conserva Irrigation. “He not only has the drive and grit that is valuable to our business, but also the sales and marketing knowledge to create and build a successful Conserva franchise location.”

Conserva Irrigation of South Birmingham is currently the sole location for the state of Alabama, but the franchise is looking to expand into other metro areas. Before purchasing Conserva Irrigation of South Birmingham, Dooley worked within the restaurant industry as a local franchisee in Birmingham.

A native of Washington, D.C., Dooley relocated to Birmingham in 2006. Both Dooley and his wife, Carrie, are thankful for the support and generosity of their community and look forward to serving Birmingham in their new role as Conserva Irrigation franchisees.
