The Grounds Guys awards first VetFran Agreement
The Grounds Guys, a commercial and high-end residential landscape management franchisor, has announced that it has awarded its first VetFran agreement to Michael Bagley, who will open his own The Grounds Guys franchise this fall in Olathe, Kan.
According to the information provided, the VetFran Program, supported by the International Franchise Association, gives U.S. military veterans a discount towards the purchase of a franchise and includes hundreds of franchise concepts, including The Grounds Guys, from which to choose. As a VetFran recipient, Bagley joins more than 1,500 former military personnel across the United States who now own their own business.
“I knew we were looking for a service-oriented company with recurring business potential that people wanted and needed,” Bagley said. He and his wife, Tara, were attracted to The Grounds Guys, which offers landscaping services and maintenance from a growing and trusted brand. The discounted franchise fee as a military veteran was an added incentive. “We wanted to go into business for ourselves to create our own pathway to success. Trying to climb the corporate ladder is extremely competitive, so we are building our own ladder by joining The Grounds Guys.”
The Grounds Guys is a landscape management service franchise opportunity with
more than 20 years of landscaping franchise experience. Combining the strength
of a local business with the benefits of a national brand name, The Grounds Guys
is part of The Dwyer Group. (kbp)
