There was plenty of joy for Fraser Pringle, of TruGreen, Professional Lawn Care, in October. Pringle bought TruGreen Nottingham and, a week later, his partner gave birth to their first child – on his brother’s wedding day.
TruGreen was recommended to Pringle by his father Don who has worked for the franchisor ServiceMaster for the past 10 years.
Don commented: “I was more than happy to encourage my son to join the ServiceMaster family of brands.”
Pringle was looking for a change of career that enabled him to manage his own hours. His father’s recommendation of a TruGreen franchise appealed.
“The thought of being my own boss was a major influence as well as the flexibility that this brought. While the days are busy, they are days I can arrange. The support from the TruGreen Network Manager and ServiceMaster has been ongoing and vital to me. I could not have done this at such a busy time in my life without them!”
Pringle began trading on October 7 with the birth of baby Finley on October 14, the same day his brother James was married in Florida. He commented: “Everything did all happen at once, yet it came together as well. Starting my TruGreen franchise came just at the right time. I can’t fault ServiceMaster and I am very happy with my TruGreen business.”
