The Many Benefits of Franchising in the New Year

There’s no time like the New Year to reflect on your past and plan for the future. And as we enter 2021, people are reflecting on their professional life more than ever. If you’ve been thinking of expanding your current business or completely changing your career, now is the time to join an industry that’s growing.

Outdoor Living Industry Franchises

Recession-Resilient Businesses Have Proved Themselves

The COVID-19 pandemic affected businesses across the country in ways we’ve never seen before. However, while some businesses, unfortunately, had to close their doors, our brands — Conserva Irrigation, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, and Archadeck — not only survived but thrived.

With stay-at-home orders in effect for many states these past several months, homeowners shifted their focus to developing and improving their home’s yard. And as an essential business, our brands were able to safely continue helping customers create the outdoor space of their dreams.

“No matter the circumstance, homeowners are still going to need help maintaining their properties, and that’s what has always attracted me to outdoor service,” said Vanesa Ellis, the owner of a Conserva Irrigation territory of Northeast Florida,

A Better Work-Life Balance

There’s no denying our franchisees put in the work to get their business up and running. However, unlike with traditional 9-5 jobs, franchise owners have greater control over when they work. And once your business is up and running, you may be able to take a step back and pursue other passions or even consider opening a second location.

Greater Control Over Your Professional Life

When you choose to work for yourself in a recession-resilient industry, you don’t have to worry about suddenly or unexpectedly losing your job due to shifting strategies in corporate America. Instead, you’ll have control over your future and your financial results and future will be directly linked to your own efforts.

Last year, despite the pandemic, Outdoor Living Brands' number of franchise locations increased by 32%, reflecting strong demand for its services at the consumer level (aggregate sales in 2020 were up over 30% compared to 2019) is translating to strong demand for its three franchise offerings, including Archadeck, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, and Conserva Irrigation.

Outdoor Living Brands, Inc. is the market-leading franchisor of premium residential and commercial outdoor living services with multiple established national brands — Archadeck, Conserva Irrigation, and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. Get started with us today!
