HOUSTON – The Grounds Guys, a full-service landscaping and grounds care franchise, will attend the Texas Nursery/Landscape EXPO here from Aug. 17 – 19. A franchise representative and current franchise owners will meet with nursery and landscaping professionals at the EXPO (Booth 621) with information about franchise opportunities.
On Saturday, Aug. 18 at 1:30 p.m., CEO and Chairwoman Dina Dwyer-Owens will speak at the Expo’s demo stage about her experiences on CBS’ hit show Undercover Boss” and will show clips from the episode. She will address the importance of incorporating a values system into business, a recurring element in the show. The episode is scheduled to re-air on CBS on Aug. 10 at 7:00 p.m. CT.
Cade Howard, a 22-year-old entrepreneur whose journey with The Grounds Guys began at last year’s expo, will be on hand at the booth to share his experience. “I met The Grounds Guys at the 2011 Texas Nursery/Landscape Association trade show in Dallas, Texas. I already had an existing lawn care business and I was immediately impressed after speaking with them. I began restructuring my business into The Grounds Guys of The Golden Triangle in August of 2011.”
Since expanding from Canada into the U.S. in 2010, The Grounds Guys has grown rapidly, growing to 70 U.S. franchises from 37 at the end of 2011. The company currently has six locations in Texas, and growth plans include major markets such as Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Houston.
