Frank’s Nursery has announced plans to expand into the wholesale nursery business. In February 2004, Frank’s will start servicing professional landscapers in two markets in the Northeast. To aid in this expansion, Frank’s has entered a vendor partnership with Conard-Pyle, a grower in West Grove, Pa., with experience in the wholesale business.
Bruce Dale, Frank’s president and CEO said, “Many Americans want beautiful lawns and gardens but just do not have the time to create and maintain them. As a result, they have hired professional landscapers to perform these services and Franks Nursery wants to be the professional landscapers’ favorite place to purchase products for their customers.”
“The wholesale nursery business is a natural extension for Franks Nursery,” continued Dale. “With our buying power and our horticultural specialists, we believe Franks Nursery will be able to provide professional landscapers with high-quality, geographically specific products at affordable prices.”
