“Zach and Chris have built a tremendous brand with Superior Fence & Rail. With a commitment to quality and focus on customer service, the Company has established itself as the market leader within their sector,” said Brian Alas, Managing Director of Boxwood Partners. “We knew when Lynx Franchising partnered with Outdoor Living Brands back in September that they would be actively seeking best-in-class, residential service brands, and that is exactly what they found with Superior Fence & Rail.”

“We are extremely appreciative of all the hard work and guidance provided by the Boxwood team throughout the entire process,” said Zach Peyton, President & Co-Founder of Superior Fence & Rail. “Their experience and knowledge of both residential services and franchising helped us identify the ideal partner for our business.

We are thrilled to be joining forces and are excited to leverage our combined experiences in franchising to help support the continued growth and success of our existing franchisees.”

Outdoor Living Brands serves as the residential home services platform within LYNX Franchising. The acquisition of Superior Fence & Rail adds another best-in-class brand to complement its existing portfolio of Conserva Irrigation, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives and Archadeck.
