Kevin Sparks owner of Lawnscience (Northants) Ltd. says:
I bought my franchise after working as a technician in the Milton Keynes franchise. I worked in the business for a full year and quickly realised the full, all year long potential of the business, and when I realised the financial rewards I wanted my own operation. I had previously worked in retail so had experience in customer contact and sales but no previous experience of horticulture or the lawn care market.
Initially starting my own business was a little scary and I would be lying if I said I didn’t have any concerns, but Terry helped me work up a business plan and helped with me throughout the planning stage with no pressure on their behalf to make the final “go” decision before I was ready to. I particularly liked the idea of having a bespoke financial start-up package prepared for me which allowed me to start my business with minimum capital investment, other franchisors had advised me purchase equipment from the outset, which was not needed until the latter end of my first year.
The preparation period for my business launch was made easy due to the fact that I always had someone to hold my hand and help me take the difficult decisions all entrepreneurs have to make when establishing a new enterprise.
I recommend Lawnscience as a business partner and if this is the opportunity for you, I know they can make your business dream a reality.
