Cory BenoitGreen Industry Partner
Owner of Evergreen Maintenance and Spring-Green Lawn Care
Cory Benoit, a seasoned green industry expert, started mowing lawns at the age of 19 and by the time he was 26 years old he began his own business, Evergreen Maintenance.
Cory added Spring-Green so that he will have full control over how to care for the customer’s lawn. With the addition of Spring-Green to his current business, Benoit will now be able to offer his customers lawn care services including fertilization along with mowing maintenance, snow removal, and irrigation.
“We’re cutting the lawn, but we aren’t able to control the irrigation or the fertilization. There’s only so much you can do to a lawn as the last thing that’s done, which is mowing,” expressed Benoit. “I wanted to be able to provide those extra services so that I had control over how to develop the lawn to give it the best overall look,” said Benoit.
Cory has always considered himself an entrepreneur, but when his family began to grow and three boys were added to the Benoit family, he decided to diversify. “Diversifying gives me added security. I’ve learned not to have all my eggs in one basket, as separating them allows me to look at the end result”, said Benoit.
A main factor in Cory’s decision of owning and operating a Spring-Green Lawn Care business was the fact that it is a family owned business that has been operating for over 40 years. When he was conducting his initial search on franchise opportunities, he felt that Spring-Green would be able to provide him with what he was looking for.
“They have experienced the struggles that businesses face. I wanted to be part of a franchise who has experience with that, so that they can better overcome struggles in the future. In addition, the fact that they are a family owned business was a key selling point for me. They express this throughout all their franchisees as they strive for their success,” Benoit explained.
Benoit also stated that having a good reputation was a major driving factor in joining Spring-Green. “A good reputation, a clear path of direction, and support throughout the process has been amazing,” said Benoit.
