Entrepreneurs have fantastic opportunities to create new businesses that either use green technologies and materials, or are just green. Will you become a green pioneer?
Currently, there are a few franchise organizations have become leaders in the green franchise movement…
I’d like to take a moment to mention a few of them, who also happen to be sponsors over on my Green Franchise Directory;
- groOrganic- This niche franchise business helps environmentally conscious consumers install and maintain customized organic vegetable gardens and vineyards in a minimum of space and with a minimum of fuss. They even helped The Kardashians plant an organic garden.
- Maid Brigade-I have personally helped Maid Brigade grow their franchise organization, and they really get it. They are the first Green Seal Certified residential cleaning franchise, and are constantly upping the ante with new ways to green their business.
- Solar Universe– Joe Bono and the top-notch team over at Solar Universe show their franchisees how to sell, design, and install solar panels for homes and businesses. They are currently at 14 total franchises, and will be adding several more this year. Here’s an article about this innovative and professional company. (Joe calls me “The Solar Franchise King”)
- DetailXperts– This is the first eco-friendly steam car wash and detailing service in the world. This low-cost franchise opportunity shows it’s franchisees how to detail vehicles without harsh detergents and cleaners. They even have a process that used distilled water vapors for automobile interior cleaning.
Some other franchise types that are green in nature, currently include energy audit franchises, kitchen remodeling franchises that save trees by doing cabinet refacing, some up and coming food franchises that use totally organic ingredients in their offerings, and lawn maintenance franchises that use electric-powered lawnmowers.
I’m probably missing some green franchise concepts, so if you have one, now’s the time to let me know.
What other green franchise concepts will be invented this year? What technologies will franchise organizations start using to become more green? Changing out old fashioned light bulbs is a great start. But I know that there’s more….
As a matter of fact, it’s your lucky day. Here’s 100 of them!
