LONG BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The ongoing economic drought has bypassed Long Beach-based Growing Roots™, a full-service interior plantscaping company that recently completed the process of franchising its system and is offering franchise opportunities to small business entrepreneurs across the U.S.
Growing Roots™, an interior plantscaping company dedicated to creating beautiful, enjoyable, healthier interior environments for the home or office, was founded in 2004 by Jennifer Perez. The company delivers interior plantscaping services, including interior plant purchase, leasing, design and maintenance, to a wide variety of commercial and high-end residential clients across Southern California.
“I love what I do,” states Perez. “It’s fun and is a huge benefit to my clients. Our interior plantscaping services help clean their environment—whether it’s their work space or living space. Indoor plants improve indoor air quality and have been scientifically proven to dramatically reduce stress.”
Working with The Franchise Maker, a San Diego-based company that helps businesses realize their franchise wealth, Growing Roots™ completed all the steps to franchise its business model.
“Growing Roots is a great home-based business with low startup costs, and it’s perfect for people with families who want to start a business.” Perez herself is married and has a two-and-a-half-year old.
Businesses with indoor space are potential customers including hotel lobbies, restaurants, airports, office spaces, malls, banks, universities and medical facilities.
“It’s important to understand that interior plants are more than just about décor,” said Perez. “They can help businesses fulfill their ‘green building’ goals by decreasing VOC levels, molds and bacteria, while reducing stress and increasing productivity and focus among employees.”
Participants do not need a horticultural background to start the business. “When I started, I didn’t have a background in interior plants or the industry,” states Perez. “Neither does a potential franchisee—that’s the beauty of this franchise.”
