Financial Times Names Conserva as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies in 2020
We are excited to start our celebration off with a huge thank you to Financial Times, which recently named Conserva Irrigation® as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies in 2020.
Financial Times’ ranking this year comes at a time filled with uncertainty. Uncertainty for the future of many companies, the workforce, and potential growth. This ranking highlights 500 businesses that have had creativity, innovation, and hard work pay off for them, even during the pandemic and darkness our world has seen in the past few months. This award shows just how recession-resilient and ready to take on what’s next we are at Conserva Irrigation®! We are honored to be placed on a list among these other businesses!
The ranking was compiled with the help of Statista, a research company, and ranks the businesses by compound annual growth in revenue between 2015 and 2018.

Entrepreneur Magazine Ranks Conserva #7 in Top New Franchise List
We are also excited to share that Conserva Irrigation was recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Top New Franchises list. This list recognizes the top 100 companies that have been franchising for five years or less, based on data submitted for Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® ranking. We are honored to be ranked #7 nationally!
“Nearly a quarter of the companies that applied for this year’s Franchise 500 ranking are relative newcomers—they've been franchising for five years or less,” says Jason Feifer, Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur. “That's an exciting thing to see in this industry. For people attracted to franchising's built-in systems and support, but who still want the thrill of growing something from the bottom up, there are many options to choose from.”
Entrepreneur’s 2020 Top New Franchises ranking was determined using the company’s Franchise 500 formula, which is a comprehensive evaluation of more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Conserva’s position on the ranking shows that it is off to a strong start on its franchising journey.

Conserva Continues Expansion into Seven New Territories
Lastly, we are beyond excited to announce that we have added seven new territories to our service coverage! Even during the uncertainty caused by the current pandemic, we are excited to welcome four new franchisees to our family, expanding across Texas, Colorado, and introducing our first location in Utah!
Partnering with franchisees possessing corporate and maintenance experience, our smart irrigation company is slated to expand throughout the following territories:
- Fort Collins, CO
- Southeast Denver, CO
- Southern Salt Lake City, UT
- North Frisco, TX
With the addition of these new territories across three different states, we have been able to successfully expand our reach to 90 plus territories across the nation! When asked about Conserva’s recent success, among increased levels of uncertainty, Russ Jundt, founder of Conserva Irrigation® had this to say:
“We’ve been fortunate enough to sustain success during the economic downturn because of continued strong consumer demand for our services, the ability to continue to operate as an essential service, our hardworking franchisees, technicians, and corporate staff. We’re looking forward to launching in our newest territories,” he continued, “As our new territories launch, we’ll begin hiring technicians, which will provide employment opportunities for those looking for a career in smart irrigation. It’s been a challenging time for all of us, but our culture and togetherness have helped everyone pull through and we believe that’s a major part of why entrepreneurs want to join this brand.”
We are beyond excited to expand and grow with these new franchise locations, territories, and communities!
