The tree service franchise expects to achieve $100 million in sales by 2021.

Monster Tree Service, a tree service franchise, is expanding in North Carolina, building on its three-year franchise system growth.

Paul Dhunjishaw has purchased the rights to a Monster Tree Service territory in Caswell Beach, North Carolina, covering the Wilmington metro area, Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties and surrounding areas. After a successful career as an executive for a major hotel and resort company, Dhunjishaw is eager to use his financial and customer service experience to pursue his dream of small business ownership.

“I’ve lived in 12 different states, and nothing compares to coastal North Carolina,” says Dhunjishaw. “When I decided to step away from the hospitality industry, I knew that I didn’t want to move my family away from this area or be required to travel for my career. Monster Tree Service is a great opportunity for me to live and work in the community that I enjoy. I feel the business model and corporate support will help me become a successful business owner in this area.”

Josh Skolnick, CEO and founder of Monster Tree Service, is confident that Dhunjishaw will be a tremendous asset to the Monster Tree Service franchise.

“Paul is a perfect fit for the Monster Tree Service brand,” says Skolnick. “He has an incredible work ethic, an unparalleled drive to succeed and a keen understanding of business and his community. We are very glad to have him on our team. I can’t wait to see his growth in the coming years.”

Monster Tree Service has achieved year-over-year 5% growth since 2009, resulting in a $10-plus million business. It expects to achieve $100 million in sales by 2021.

“We officially opened for business in late September, right in the middle of Atlantic hurricane season,” says Dhunjishaw. “Coastal North Carolina is prone to hurricanes and storms, so we get a lot of calls for preventative work. You don’t want a tree hanging over your roof when a storm is coming. We’re also excited to offer the community our wide array of services, including, plant health care, tree removal, shrub pruning and more.”
