The addition of four Florida franchises brings the number of franchises to 86.

Conserva Irrigation, Richmond, Virginia, a national outdoor irrigation company founded on the concept of water conservation, has announced the signing of four franchise agreements to expand the brand's presence throughout Florida. On the heels of Conserva's rapid expansion in 2018, the water conservation-leader has added territories in West Palm Beach, Orlando, Brevard County, Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Conserva now operates in more than 86 territories around the country.

"While we have our sights set on aggressive nationwide expansion, Florida has always been at the top of our list. The state's warm weather and tropical climate makes irrigation a year-long business and we're fortunate to have located the right entrepreneurs that will position our brand for long-term success," said Russ Jundt, founder of Conserva Irrigation. "Introducing homeowners and local businesses to Conserva continues to be our biggest focus and we're anxious to see our newest franchisees in action. This is just the beginning of our planned growth in 2019."

Joining Conserva's industry-leading team are the following franchisees:

  • Yohei Castro of Conserva Irrigation West Palm Beach
  • Jeff Daniels of Conserva Irrigation Brevard County
  • Scott Mullins and Roger Mullins of Conserva Irrigation of Orlando
  • Vanesa and Chris Ellis of Conserva Irrigation NE Florida (Jacksonville and St. Augustine)

"We've had our eye on Conserva for some time and we're excited to get started," says Vanesa Ellis. "Conserva is helping to eliminate the water waste issue plaguing our planet. Our customers are saving money and we're using eco-friendly, water-saving techniques to help our clientele enjoy their beautiful landscape. It's a win for all parties involved – from an environmental and economic standpoint."

Conserva Irrigation operates underneath the Outdoor Living Brands umbrella and 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 company was founded in 2010 by Russ Jundt.
