Outdoor Living Brands VISION Brought to Life in Minnesota

Outdoor Living Brands VISION Brought to Life in Minnesota

When Outdoor Living Brands was founded the executive team had a vision to enrich lives through proven franchise brands. The vision was shaped by the view of what franchising is – a vehicle for entrepreneurs topursue their personal career, lifestyle and financial goals. But even more so the team wanted to create a unique environment with multiple complimentary franchise businesses that would create synergies and cross-promotional opportunities. In doing so, Outdoor Living Brands would be able to enhance the operational financial horizons for all franchisees.

This week we have seen the vision come to a reality with a truly remarkable story; the story of valued franchisees Russ Jundt, Tom Olson and Larry Tubbs. Tom Olson and Russ Jundt, began their journey with Outdoor Living Brands many years ago when the invested in the Mosquito Squad. Entrepreneurs living in the Twin Cities saw a great opportunity to help Minnesotans take back their outdoor spaces and enjoy the beauty without the annoyance of Minnesota’s unofficial state bird – the mosquito biting and buzzing around them. Over the years Tom and Russ continued to see the possibilities to serve home and business owners in their area and identified a need among their clients for premier outdoor lighting services.

The decision was made to expand their services and the team added Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. As Outdoor Lighting Perspectives franchisees, Tom and Russ now offer premier lighting design, installation and maintenance services to help extend the time their clients are able to spend enjoying their outdoor spaces. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives also provides the duo with an opportunity to extend their season with the brands, full service approach to exceptional Holiday Lighting.

In January, the duo attended Outdoor Living Brands 2015 Annual Convention where the newest addition to the World Class Franchisor was unveiled – Casuwel. Casuwel (www.casuwel.com) brings together stylish outdoor furniture design with the finest craftsmanship and moderate pricing. Giving all franchisees a unique opportunity to expand revenue and services offered to their clients. Tom and Russ were delighted to add yet another opportunity to their outdoor service empire.
While in attendance Tom and Russ also met other franchisees within the family including Larry Tubbs. Larry Tubbs has operated Archadeck of Hennepin County and helped hundreds of Minnesotans design and create beautiful outdoor living spaces. The team began discussing the upcoming Minneapolis Home & Garden Show and found a great opportunity for each team.

The team created the first, Outdoor Living Brands home show booth announcing new additions Casuwel and Conserva Irrigation alongside four World Class Franchise opportunities. We are all thrilled to see the vision of Outdoor Living Brands come to life and look forward to seeing the possibilities for more franchisees in the future!
