Robotic Lawn Mowing Arrives in Southern Wake County
High-tech Mowbot franchise brings future of lawn maintenance to the Triangle
July 13, 2020 // Franchising.com // RALEIGH, N.C. - Mowbot, the nation’s premier robotic lawnmowing service, is opening a new location, Mowbot of Southern Wake County. Local business owner Tim Flannery is partnering with Mowbot, a new, cutting-edge national franchise, and Husqvarna, the world’s leader in outdoor power products, to bring robotic lawnmowers to lawn-loving businesses and homeowners in the Triangle.
The small bot, which operates with GPS technology and artificial intelligence, lives in homeowners’ yards and runs entirely on battery power. The high-tech lawn service is disrupting the $99.5 billion lawn care industry with its clean, green, and quiet solution to lawn mowing. It’s the perfect way for homeowners, campuses, recreational spaces, property management groups and homeowners’ associations to save time and the environment in caring for North Carolina’s grasses.
Post-COVID Career Switch
After a 30-year career in telecommunications, Flannery decided it was time to switch gears and start his own business. The opportunity to partner with Mowbot and become a leader in the explosive robotics industry was the perfect fit.
“This is a great opportunity to take robotic mowers out into the world and make Mowbot a common household name,” says Tim Flannery. “Plus, I really like working with people and educating them on new technology, so this will be fun!”
Flannery says Mowbot’s benefits are especially attractive during the COVID-19 lockdown and the uncertainty surrounding the transmission of the virus. Mowbot eliminates reliance on traditional lawn crews, who move from yard to yard. With the bot, there is no need to worry about social distancing and disease spread. Plus, the battery-powered bot’s quiet motor is a welcome alternative from the noisy blowers and mowers disrupting the workflow happening in home offices throughout the Triangle.
North Carolina-based businessmen Tony Hopp and Jeff Dudan founded Mowbot because they see the robot revolution that is coming. Also, the opportunity to be a major disrupter in the lawn care industry that will benefit from a high-tech, environmentally friendly alternative.
“We are excited to welcome Tim to the Mowbot family,” said Tony Hopp, Mowbot CEO. “North Carolina is a growing area, and he will find unlimited growth potential there. We believe Mowbot of Southern Wake County will thrive in this market.”
Mowbot of Southern Wake County serves Garner, Cleveland, Willow Springs, Angier and more.
