Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) October 30, 2012 - U.S. Lawns is pleased to announce that the Franchise Development Team exhibited at the 2012 GIE+EXPO held October 24-26 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, KY. U.S. Lawns joined more than 18,000 participants from over 20 countries, including exhibitors, dealers, retailers, manufacturers’ representatives, rental shops and distributors of lawn, garden and outdoor products and equipment for consumer and commercial use; also lawn & landscape professionals, hardscape contractors and distributors, general contractors, forest & land managers, maintenance & grounds managers and parks & municipal buyers.
To support its franchise recruitment efforts, U.S. Lawns announced a new dealer referral program at the show. U.S. Lawns is now offering equipment dealers/suppliers $2,000 credit towards a vacation of their choice if a referred candidate purchases a franchise. $150 is being offered for each referred candidate who fills out a financial application.
The GIE+EXPO provided the Franchise Development Team with the opportunity to further promote its $0 down conversion program to existing landscape/lawn care business owners from across the country. For 26 years, U.S. Lawns has helped green industry business owners take their businesses to the next level through the support of a franchise network.
“Our franchise growth has continued to trend upwards the past few years, despite the challenges created by the economy,” said Brandon Moxam, U.S. Lawns Director of Franchise Recruiting. “Much of this can be contributed to the success we have in the conversion market. Professional equipment dealers have relationships with the individuals we are looking to talk to, and the new referral program provides incentive for these suppliers to put their candidates in contact with us.”
