West Palm Beach, Fla.— March 26, 2018 —SuperGreen Solutions®, a leading provider of sustainability advisory services and turnkey renewable energy solutions for businesses, is pleased to announce three new SuperGreen Solutions franchise locations in Florida: Sarasota, Venice, and Bradenton. The locations are a joint partnership between Charles Reith, Ph.D. (Reith Energy) and Jenny and Nick Shaw (Shaw Holdings). The Sarasota location will be the first to open on April 2. The other two locations will open later in the spring.
The three franchise owners are ideally qualified to advance the brand’s mission of being the premier business partner for lowering client costs, increasing client staff productivity and loyalty, differentiating client from competition and helping client become a green market leader.
Dr. Reith has spent over 25 years as an international sustainability professional; providing a wide range of global sustainability services, including energy audits, modeling, waste and water management, environmental remediation, and climate-related consulting, to large multi-nationals, such as Shell, ExxonMobil and Pemex, via Reith Energy. He was attracted to the unique SuperGreen Solutions service: being a long-term advisor to a client; taking them through a sustainability certification; then promoting their new status to their audiences.
“Everyone else in the sustainability industry is focused solely on the cost-reduction side of a client’s P&L. They talk about the three legs of the sustainability stool – people, profit and planet. But, SuperGreen Solutions has taken a fresh look at the industry. They add a fourth leg – promotion – to the stool; and, by doing so, offer a broader service that additionally helps clients on the revenue side of the P&L. This is the way of the future and I wanted to be part of it,” says Dr. Reith.
Reith has authored three books and is a Certified Permaculture Designer, a Licensed Horticulturalist, and a Licensed Landscape Contractor. He holds a B.S. in Ecology and Environment from University of California Santa Barbara and a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of New Mexico. He has served academia as professor, administrator, and staff member at four universities: American University of Nigeria, Tulane University, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and George Mason University.
Jenny and Nick Shaw together own a successful Lawn Doctor franchise in Indiana. Passionate about a career in IT, Nick Shaw attended Indiana University and earned his Post Baccalaureate in Computer Science. He then worked for Apple® and Marshall Associates before deciding to start his own business. As one guy with one truck, he started Lawn Doctor of West Lake County and has grown the company to 13 employees and 10 trucks over the course of 15 years. With a background in office management, Jenny Shaw joined Nick at Lawn Doctor where she served as the office and marketing manager until they relocated to Florida. The Shaws’ entrepreneurial spirit and passion for sustainability led them to franchise with SuperGreen Solutions.
“SuperGreen Solutions has a strong business model, providing one-of-a-kind, high-demand solutions, and promotional services, in an exploding industry, serving 98% of all businesses in the world! This was the right fit for our desire to dramatically expand our existing business portfolio,” said Jenny Shaw. “We don’t just green the business, we also help business owners understand and capitalize on the many benefits of going green, internally and externally,” added Nick Shaw. “I’m excited about this partnership, and our new businesses.”
SuperGreen Solutions is part of United Franchise Group (UFG), a group of affiliated companies and brands. All three partners attended UFG’s dedicated franchisee training program at the company’s West Palm Beach headquarters in early 2018. The program includes mentorship, networking, business management training, and real-world assistance in making each franchise location a success.
“Charles, Nick, and Jenny are an innovative, intelligent, experienced and dedicated team,” said David Goodman, president of SuperGreen Solutions. “With Charles’ background in the sustainability industry and Nick and Jenny’s previous franchise ownership experience, I’m certain each location will be a tremendous success.”
SuperGreen Solutions offers a unique, four-point Green Compass Sustainability Award program that includes a sustainability certification and training in how to market these changes for maximum benefit. To learn more, visit www.supergreensolutions.com.
