Air Force Vet Set to Become Franchise Owner


After seven years in the Air Force, Brandon Rossi was no stranger to hard work, discipline and he was well aware of the importance of following a plan. These are three of the most important traits in a franchise owner which led Brandon to begin exploring franchise options.

Brandon then found the Franchising 101 Podcast and instantly connected with the FranCoach team. The FranCoach process uncovered options that were vastly different than what Brandon had found on his own but one of these new franchise opportunities gained immediate interest.

Having spent time as a real estate investor and realtor, Brandon knew the importance of a high-quality home service business. The chance to build a team of his own and have great support from the franchisor was imperative. Brandon also wanted the ability to scale with multiple locations or even multiple brands.

All these things combined led to the match of Brandon and The Ground Guys and their parent company Neighborly.

The Grounds Guys provide commercial, residential, and municipal property maintenance and landscaping services; snow removal services (depending on location); junk, trash, and debris removal; landscape design; horticultural services, namely, sod installation, lawn and vegetation fertilization and treatment; and other related services and products.

Brandon is on target to be open for business early this summer in the Tampa, FL market. Congrats to Brandon and The Grounds Guys!

“The conversation we had, just on that first call, when you said, ‘Tell more about Ryan, what flips your switch, what gets you out of bed in the morning’… it was really important to me to know those things upfront.”

Ryan, Alabama

“One of the lessons that I learned very quickly was to focus on what is driving you as an individual. What makes you get up, and what do you want to get up and do every day?”
