The company reached the milestone in its third full year of franchising.

Conserva Irrigation, Richmond, Virginia, has passed 100 territories by signing franchise agreements to grow in Northwest Portland, Oregon; Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas; Northwest Houston, Texas; and Delaware Valley, Pennsylvania. The company now operates in 207 territories across the country.

“This is an exciting achievement for Conserva Irrigation and despite a turbulent year filled with plenty of obstacles, we’ve been able to grow our footprint to more than 100 territories across the country,” says Russ Jundt, founder of Conserva Irrigation.

Conserva Irrigation operates underneath the Outdoor Living Brands umbrella.

“It’s been a privilege to be part of Conserva Irrigation’s journey and we feel fortunate that the unprecedented events in 2020 haven’t impeded our franchisees’ success,” says Chris Grandpre, chairman and CEO of Outdoor Living Brands. “Conserva Irrigation operates in an industry that has grown to more than $7 billion in revenue and it has always been our vision to build this brand into an industry leader and the household name around the country. Reaching 100 territories in just over three years is just another step in achieving that goal. Our goals for 2021 include opening another 50 territories adding to Conserva Irrigation’s footprint across the United States.”

In addition to reaching its newest milestone, Conserva Irrigation recently jumped more than 1,400 spots in this year’s Inc. 5000 ranking, which lists companies based on their percentage of revenue growth from 2016 to 2019. In addition, Conserva Irrigation experienced its highest sales months in June and July 2020 since the company’s inception in 2010.

Conserva Irrigation is looking to expand further throughout the U.S. and is seeking single- and multi-unit operators with a range of corporate experience, as well as those looking for add-on or conversion business opportunities. Incentives are also available for veterans, multi-territory agreements and those with existing businesses.
