How much money does a U.S. Lawns franchise make? This is the number one question you are most likely asking when considering our business opportunity. Investing is a franchise is life-changing, you need real numbers to help make an educated decision.
While there are many individual factors that go into your true profit potential, you can get a better picture of what is possible by first looking at Item 19 in U.S. Lawns’ franchise disclosure document. In 2019 the average U.S. Lawns franchisee who has been in business for at least five years generated gross revenues of $962,599, with a net profit margin of 16.7%. This information is based on actual unaudited data submitted by 146 franchised territories that were open for at least 60 months at the end of the 2019 fiscal reporting period. Average gross sales is defined by the total combined gross sales of the 146 territories divided by 146. Of course, your sales could be higher or lower depending on your unique circumstances.
The green industry, by comparison, sees less than one percent of all registered businesses achieve such a level of sustainability. U.S. Lawns far outpaces the industry. This is evident in the brand’s burgeoning Million Dollar Club, a distinction provided to franchisees who have generated a million dollars in annual revenue in a single territory. The club continues to grow in membership numbers, so much so that U.S. Lawns even created a subset group of Top 10 franchisees to recognize the highest performers within the club.
More Than Average
The key word to note in the aforementioned financial performance representation is ‘average’. U.S. Lawns is looking for franchisees who want to be more than average performers. With a solid business model in a viable territory, nothing matters more to your earning potential than what kind of owner you choose to be. If you are a motivated and business minded entrepreneur, you will see a greater return on your investment, but you first must get yourself off the mower and into a growth mindset.
If you have that, U.S. Lawns can help you maximize your true profit potential with their dedication to 100 percent franchisee satisfaction, comprehensive support and unmatched resources.
