Business Formats

There are two business formats that can be used to operate your lawn care business. The first format is “man-and-a-an”, this is the format that we use to start your business. 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. Franchise partners start in this format to understand the treatments they business apply to their customers’ lawns. It is also a great way to really learn the business and develop great confidence.

It is your choice whether you continue as a “man-and-a-van” or grow your business into a “Multi-van” operation.

The multi- van operation consists of you 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.

Call us today on 01908 504664 and we can provide you with an overview of each format for you to consider.

I knew that in order to take control of my income and working life, I would have to work for myself, rather than working for others. However, choosing a business to start on my own was not that simple. I was initially drawn to Lawnscience because Terry supplied me with lots of information from the start, which helped me to understand the business. Another great advantage to Lawnscience is that they gave me the opportunity to create my own bespoke trading territory, something which most franchisors could not have done. Having met with Lawnscience on several occasions to discuss their business and the way in which they operate, my mind was made up. This was always going to be a daunting decision, but I was given the opportunity to speak with all of the current franchisees about their experiences, which gave me the confidence to take the leap into self-employment. After my initial training, my marketing plan fired into action and the phone rang and rang and rang. Today, after only 7 months of trading I have already surpassed my first years sales target by over £10,000, and the year is far from over.
