Veterans who are searching for the right career after their service may not picture owning a landscaping business as a viable option that falls in line with their skills and values; however, with the right brand that shares similar skills and values, owning a landscaping business may be the perfect opportunity. U.S. Lawns is a commercial landscaping franchise that has the national strength and the local commitment that military veterans share. Here’s a closer look at what that means:
U.S. Lawns has more than 250 locations across the United States, but also has tremendous opportunity for growth. Highly desirable territories remain available in most areas of the country for you to build your commercial landscaping empire. Additionally, U.S. Lawns equips new franchisees with extensive training and many other tools and services to help them along their journey of owning a landscaping business. With a national brand behind them, franchisees know they are connected to one another and can always reach out for support.
One of the biggest advantages of a franchise is the power of the network. Having a large network of established franchisees who have already achieved a level of success with the brand is a huge benefit to a newcomer. U.S. Lawns actively promotes these relationships from the beginning by hosting mentorship programs such as “Coffee with a Pro” to introduce newer franchisees to more experienced mentors and help begin their franchise journey by connecting with people who can help them along the way. Mentorship programs like this often lead to long-lasting competitive comraderies that help both mentor and mentored to take their businesses to the next level.
Franchisees are also connected through an internal social media platform to interact, ask questions, communicate, and share best practices. Owning a landscaping business can be a lot of work, but with a nationwide network of people to support you, it will make the end result worth it.
Veterans Incentives and Opportunities
Veterans choose to own a landscaping business because it gives them the opportunity to work outside of an office and work for themselves much like in the military. Opening a landscaping franchise with U.S. Lawns also means they can save money too. U.S. Lawns offers veteran incentives and special rates to help them transition into being a business owner.
Owning a U.S. Lawns franchise also allows you to play a part in improving your community. Through beautification efforts, sponsorships, charitable causes, and other involvement, franchisees can be active members of the communities they serve. Because a U.S. Lawns franchisee works for themselves and not in a traditional office setting, they have the freedom to be as involved as they want. U.S. Lawns franchisees also participate in a group volunteer event each year at the annual conference giving them a chance to serve side by side. This local commitment distinguishes U.S. Lawns franchisees within their communities and is something clients recognize.
Working for yourself means often means controlling your own destiny, but even more rewarding is improving the lives and situations of those who support you: your employees. Owning a landscaping business means leading a team of people you chose to have your back and providing opportunities that directly impact their lives and the lives of their families. Through a nationwide network and the local commitment of each individual team, franchisees are able to accomplish great things.
U.S. Lawns has countless resources for veterans to learn more about owning a landscaping business and the national strength and local commitment that the U.S. Lawns brand encompasses. We take pride in the power of our network and emphasize a local commitment that establishes trust between our franchisees and their clients that is unwavering.
