There are two formats that can be used to operate your lawn care business. The first format is “Man-and-a-van”, this is the format that we use to start your business initially. In this format, you will provide the treatments to your customers’ lawns yourself. This format is highly profitable and is the format of choice for some of our franchise partners. We start all of our franchise partners in this format as it is essential for you to really understand the treatments your business applies to its customers’ lawns. It is also a great way to really learn the business and develop great confidence.
It is your choice whether you continue to operate your business as a “Man-and-a-van” or to go on and develop your business into a “Multi-van” operation.
The “Multi-van” operation consists of you as the business manager and one or more technicians, who apply the treatments to the customers’ lawns.
You decide the size of your business and expand when and if you decide to, by growing your customer base and recruiting more technicians to look after your growing customer base. As a “Multi-van” business owner your role changes from making applications to managing the growth and stability of your business.
The format you choose is your decision, we can talk through the pros and cons of each with you.
