Monster Tree Service Branching Out
Did you know that almost everything is franchised? It’s true, including tree removal services. From my own experience as a new homeowner, I know how much money can be made in this field. At Pennsylvania-based Monster Tree Service, recent growth has been coming at a breakneck pace—with expectations of growing the system 30 percent by the end of 2017.
Monster Tree Service CEO Josh Skolnick credits his franchise partners for the company’s success—the system has grown more than 250% since 2014—and says it expects to award 100 franchise territories over the next four years.
“We’re growing quickly at Monster Tree Service because we are the only franchise company capitalizing on the underserved $17 billion tree care industry,” says Skolnick. “We have quickly built Monster Tree Service into a thriving $11 million business with franchise partners doing great work for customers all over the country. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished and I’m excited to make the Monster Tree Service brand a household name everywhere.”
After eight years of consistent 5% year-over-year growth, Monster Tree Service is looking to accelerate its system-wide growth efforts. Skolnick believes reaching the $100 million mark in sales by 2021 is more than reasonable.
“Tree service and removal is a constant need for homeowners, regardless of the economy’s performance,” says Skolnick. “If trees are downed in a yard or massive limbs are threatening a home, homeowners need a proven and reliable expert to keep their family safe. Also, people are often floored when we show them how much our affordable plant health care services can do to improve the health of their trees and protect them from crippling diseases and infestations.”
