Monster Tree Service Featured in Wall Street Journal’s Special May “Focus on Franchising” Feature

Founder/CEO Josh Skolnick Quoted for Leveraging Franchise Experience into Corporate Leadership

May 15, 2018 // // Doylestown, PA - Monster Tree Service, the nation’s first and fastest-growing tree service franchise, was recently featured by the Wall Street Journal’s special May “Focus on Franchising” Feature.

The compelling article, entitled “The Lure of Emerging Brands”, discussed why specific fresh and exciting franchises, such as Wayback Burgers, are emerging and how they are contributing to local economies across the country. “Emerging brands” are defined as those that have started offering franchises within the past five years. Monster Tree Service Founder and CEO Josh Skolnick, and other C-Suite executives featured in the article, discussed the importance of having executives who can leverage their previous franchise experience into success for companies nationwide.

In his conversation with Wall Street Journal franchising reporter, Julie Bennett, Skolnick analyzed Monster Tree Service’s dramatic growth once he made a game-changing executive decision.

“In 2013, I hired a director of franchise development who had been in the industry for 20 years,” says Skolnick, who first started a multi-crew lawn service while still in high school. “We sold seven units in our first year and now have 57 franchise units open.”

In the article, Bennett explored the appeal of emerging brands for potential suitors weighing their options and considering established brands, too. An emerging brand presents an opportunity for greater growth compared to an established franchise that may lack territory availability. Bennett discovered Monster Tree Service is prospering in part because of the leadership’s strong franchising experience.

“Our franchisees are the backbone of our success and are on the front lines of helping to make Monster Tree Service a household brand across the country,” says Skolnick. “Our corporate office is full of the brightest minds, many of whom have previous experience in franchising. This phenomenal support team helps develop stronger and more prepared franchisees who ultimately represent us in the best light for our customers.”
