New Franchisee, Ryan Debler
Driven Landscapes Opens New Location in Massachusetts
NORFOLK, Mass. – December 18, 2016:
Driven Landscapes Franchising, LLC, a professional leader in the residential landscaping industry, announced they’ve awarded a new franchise territory to Ryan Debler and Sean Cleary of Walpole, Massachusetts.
Debler and Cleary both worked for the Driven Landscapes’ corporate location before deciding to pursue their own franchise. They credit Founder and CEO Jonathan Orcutt with mentoring and inspiring them.
“Having worked for Driven Landscapes since their second year, we've seen the level of quality, professionalism and overall customer satisfaction associated with the company,” said Debler. “I want to bring the same level of service to our new territory, and I’m confident the Driven Landscapes franchise will help Sean and me to do that.”
“I've seen the company grow at an incredible rate and I'm excited to be part of the brand's growth. The systems and procedures that Jon and his staff have put in place account for everything. On the surface it probably seems pretty complex, but when you see it all laid out… when you see it all in action, it makes it seem easy to grow and scale a business.”
Debler joined the landscaping industry at 19-years-old. Over the years, he's gained valuable experience, including two years managing his own crew at Driven Landscapes. He believes that experience to be invaluable as the team begins operation at Driven Landscapes of Hopkinton.
Debler's business partner, Sean Cleary adds, “I’ve paid attention to how Jon has grown Driven Landscapes. He started small and worked hard. But in a short amount of time he went from working in the field to being a regular businessman. He's still available for us, but he spends most of his time working on sales and strategy.”
Cleary noted that he’s ready and willing to work hard, doing whatever it takes, but that he's not looking to work in the field and mow lawns forever. “A couple years ago, I had a certain picture in my head about what the owner of a landscaping company was like, and I wasn't sure that was for me. But I've seen Jon's life change. He's not stressed about the daily grind. He's got a whole team of people that manage the day-to-day business. That's what I want – I want to get to the point where our team can handle the details and Ryan and I can focus on the big picture."
Debler and Cleary's franchise territory will serve the Massachusetts towns of Hopkington, Southboro, Upton, Westboro, Ashland, Grafton, and Northboro. They'll begin operations in April 2017.
Driven Landscapes is currently seeking single-unit, start-up franchise owners, and also welcomes independent lawn care companies or related service businesses interested in converting to the Driven Landscapes brand and system.
