Cape Coral Expansion


Scooter’s Lawn Care Expands to Southwest Florida

Springfield Lawn and Landscape Company Opens Its Doors in Cape Coral

Friday, September 22, 2017 – SPRINGFIELD, IL – Local lawn and landscape company Scooter’s Lawn Care has expanded to Cape Coral, Florida. Scooter’s, owned by Jacob Godar, has experienced unprecedented growth since it opened in Springfield in 2014. “Florida was the natural next step for us,” Godar stated. “It has always been our plan. Our crew leaders can work year-round if they’re willing to spend their winters in Florida.”

Godar and a Scooter’s crew leader were just beginning work in Cape Coral when Hurricane Irma forced them to evacuate. “That was a scary week,” Godar said. “Flights were cancelled. It was getting chaotic. We rented a car and drove back to Illinois, one day before mass evacuations clogged the highways.”

Luckily, Cape Coral saw minimal hurricane damage and Scooter’s Lawn Care was able to resume work quickly. “We’ve never let anything deter us. If anything, the hurricane showed us that we’re in the right spot. We really care about the Cape Coral community.”

As for what’s next for Scooter’s Lawn Care, Godar says the possibilities are endless. “We will continue to grow. We will grow our team, create management positions, and offer our employees meaningful careers. We’ll continue to expand our service areas. We’ll continue to raise the bar in the lawn and landscape industry.”

About Scooter’s Lawn Care

Scooter’s Lawn Care offers high quality lawn care and landscaping services in Springfield. They provide a large range of service, from weekly mowing to large landscape and patio installations. They boast full-time office staff, online customer account access, automatic payment options, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Scooter’s believes that their outstanding customer service and their use of cutting-edge software separate them from their competition in Illinois and now in Florida. Their service crews use a routing program on company iPads to guarantee efficiency, stay on schedule, and track their time. “It’s something that most companies in our industry don’t use, and it’s unfortunate,” owner Jacob Godar stated. “We couldn’t take care of our customers as well as we do without software that helps us stay organized. We couldn’t be as reliable or stay in contact as well – and that’s very important to us.”
