Expanding Our Portfolio: LYNX Invests in Outdoor Living Brands

Since 1991, LYNX Franchising has been recognized as one of the leading franchisors in the commercial and residential service franchise industry. LYNX is a portfolio company of MidOcean Partners, a private equity firm with a track record of investing in successful, growth-focused franchise businesses.

With JAN-PRO, Intelligent Office, and Frsteam, in their portfolio, this multi-brand franchise platform has helped people realize their dreams of business ownership through service industry franchising. This is why we couldn’t be more excited to announce that LYNX has invested in Outdoor Living Brands!

Outdoor Living Brands, Inc. Continues to Grow

“We are thrilled to invest in Outdoor Living Brands, Inc., as it is a leading franchise company with an excellent track record investing in successful residential services businesses,” said LYNX Franchising CEO Russ Reynolds.

Outdoor Living Brands, Inc. will serve as the residential home services platform and leadership team within LYNX. This will allow us to expand our offerings to both franchisors and customers, as well as create a stronger foundation for additional services to add to our growing portfolio.

“We are excited about what this partnership means for our future. Our primary mission will be to continue to drive the strong growth of the Archadeck, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, and Conserva Irrigation franchise systems,” said Outdoor Living Brands, Inc. CEO, Chris Grandpre. “In addition, Outdoor Living Brands, Inc. will continue to look for opportunities to develop and incubate new franchise concepts in a ‘greenfield’ approach as we have accomplished with Mosquito Squad and Conserva Irrigation.”

Together with LYNX and MidOcean, we’re already exploring acquisition opportunities that align with our strategic focus on home services.

Scott Zide, President and COO of Outdoor Living Brands, Inc., will continue to lead the brands in partnership with the LYNX executive team.
