Ad Depot Is Now Live: BrandBuilder to Shut Down on June 30

by Natalie Walker on June 5, 2018

The Grounds Guys’ Ad Depot platform, powered by Office Depot, is now live! This system replaces BrandBuilder, which will shut down on June 30, 2018. To review the new features, benefits, recording training webinars and instructions to download any previously customized marketing materials from BrandBuilder, read on!

Ad Depot's Features and Benefits:

  • Significant cost savings to The Grounds Guys’ MAP Fund – no fee* to use the platform
  • The U.S. and Canadian The Grounds Guys and Neighborly/Neighbourly marketing materials are now available
  • In Canada, there will be a phased launch. In this first rollout phase, the creative files will be available for download. If printed materials are needed, please use your local preferred printer. In the next phase, there will be a direct mail and print solution through Ad Depot (Date TBD).
  • Improved customer service support including a designated corporate support team member to work from Dwyer Group’s Waco, Texas office during and following all brands’ implementation.

*There are no fees to host Dwyer Group’s marketing materials on the new Ad Depot powered by Office Depot platform, however jobs may require minimums.
