Jerry’s Lawn Mower Sales & Service, Inc
Long Beach, MS
The great American story - Jerry Favre, Sr worked as a pipe fitter at a shipyard. He had three small children to support when the Union called for a labor strike. Concerned for his family’s well-being, Jerry placed a cardboard sign in his yard in Long Beach, Mississippi advertising ‘mower repair’. That was 47 years ago and as they say ‘the rest is history’! Jerry & his wife, Conchetta, worked long hours, worked hard and made difficult decisions to form Jerry’s Lawn Mower into a thriving business. Their son, Johnny Favre, owns the business now. He and his wife, Holly, have taken what his parents started and worked tirelessly to make Jerry’s Lawn Mower what it is today - a small business with a lot of business that is deeply involved in community. Fighting against mass retailers and online sales is the current challenge, but nothing can replace knowledge, experience and a friendly attitude. No one will support a community more than one that not only lives in the community, but is deeply rooted in the community- all of which you’ll find at Jerry’s Lawn Mower. And, now the third generation of the Favre family, Franny Carpenter, has joined the business with fresh ideas and strong motivation! Jerry’s Lawn Mower will continue to serve the Mississippi Gulf Coast with all its lawn equipment needs for many more years!
