If you’re still weighing the viability of starting or maintaining a green business in Palm Beach County, consider the following success stories – both of which are occurring right in our own backyard:
The company recently announced that in addition to opening its first location in Panama City, Florida, it will be opening its first Canadian location in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada later this month.
By the end of 2014, SuperGreen Solutions plans to have 30 stores and is aiming to have a total of 300 locations within the next three to five years.
*Based in Wellington, LED Source® is the world’s first and only franchisor of LED lighting products. The company, which helps commercial and residential clients transition to LEDs, is opening locations in Barbados and Antigua. LED Source began franchising in 2009 and has since opened 15 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The company opened its first location in the Caribbean this year, with further growth planned on the islands over the next few years. In fact, LED Source is expected to add 12-15 franchise location in 2014 and long-term goals plan for a network of 150 franchise offices throughout North America and the Caribbean within three years.
Both companies are growing rapidly because consumers and businesses have caught on that switching to energy efficient products does more than just save the environment – it also saves money.
