Conserva Irrigation, Richmond, Virginia, added 14 new territories to the system in the first half of 2020. Partnering with seven new franchisees, Conserva Irrigation has grown to more than 90 territories nationwide and debuted in four new states including Utah, California, South Carolina and Indiana. Despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Conserva Irrigation also achieved a 25% increase in year-over-year sales through Q1 and Q2 and is on track for continued growth.
“Thanks to our dedicated employees and franchisees, we’ve been able to weather the coronavirus pandemic and continue our expansion across the U.S., while building sales in our existing territories. Our team has never wavered from our values to provide the best product and service within our industry,” says Russ Jundt, founder of Conserva Irrigation. “The pandemic has adjusted our operations and training protocol, but our strong company culture has kept us together. We’ve built the momentum needed to attract new franchisees looking to take control of their destiny underneath a proven recession-resistant franchise model.”
The company has continued to hire technicians across various territories and offer employment opportunities. Additionally, as a result of the pandemic, Conserva Irrigation has launched a virtual franchisee training, where sample equipment is shipped directly to the candidate as they follow in-depth training tutorials in order to quickly onboard new franchisees amid recommended social distancing measures.
In Q3 and Q4, 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.
