Ohio company joins LandOpt Network
PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Columbus-based M&I Landscapes has acquired LandOpt license rights for their territory on the north east side of the city, becoming the fourth Powered by LandOpt Contractor in the state and the second within the Central Ohio region.
As a LandOpt Contractor, M&I will join a national network of landscape contractors who incorporate the business discipline of the LandOpt System in order to achieve growth and improved profitability. A full-service landscape company, M&I specializes in both residential and commercial design/build, maintenance and lawn care.
“To have a group of like-minded individuals who are ultra-willing to share stories, resources and best practices is invaluable,” said Principal Phil Drake. “The fact that three of those companies are within the same state boundaries is especially appealing and I look forward to forming a close relationship with Pro Edge Lawn Care (Holland), ProScape Lawn & Landscape Services (Marion) and American Beauty Landscaping (Youngstown) in order to increase the reach of the LandOpt brand in Ohio.”
LandOpt President & CEO Tim Smith acknowledged that an increased LandOpt presence in any given state is an advantage to both the contractors and the customers they serve. “Our Network is well represented in Ohio. M&I, along with our other three contractors in the state, bring an elevated level of professionalism that commercial and residential customers are learning to both anticipate and expect from a landscape contractor. Within our industry, this is a much-needed paradigm shift,” Smith said. “It's exciting to watch our industry evolve as contractors recognize the importance of formal business processes and systems. It's even more exciting to see customers respond with raised expectations regarding the level of value and service that they expect a landscape contractor to provide.”
