It’s because of our dedicated staff and talented franchisees that we’ve continued to grow amid turbulent times,” says 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.”
