Growing your business requires a lot of work, especially when you are doing it all yourself. People who own a landscaping business and are looking for support have turned to franchising to get them the help and resources they need to grow their businesses. Here are three reasons why turning your business into a franchise is a good way to grow.

1.      Sharing the Load

We don’t have to tell you that as an independent business owner you carry a heavy burden. You do everything yourself, often handling everything from the physical labor, to the marketing, to the payroll processing, and everything else in between. It is hard to let go of that responsibility, but it is critical to growing your business.

When you join a franchise, you have people in your corner who can help you with these everyday operations, which is the only way to grow your business. If you can take the time to work on growing your business—adding customers and building up your crew—you could see your business take off. A franchise helps you share that load with processes in place to help you attract new customers.

2.      Competitive Comradery

The great thing about joining forces with a strong franchise brand is that you’ll have access to a vast network of home office employees and your fellow franchise owners. Each of your franchise-owning peers is working towards his or her own goals at the same time as you, creating a sense of friendly competition among you.

At the same time, your fellow franchisees are your brothers in arms. They can help you resolve issues and teach you new strategies and tricks. They are a great sounding board when you have an idea or a question. Other franchisees are an invaluable resource that you don’t have as an independent business owner.

3.      The Power of a Network

There is strength in numbers, and joining a franchise allows you to make the most of those numbers. A nationally recognized brand is made up of hundreds of franchise owners and corporate employees, all of whom work with you to help you succeed. But even more than that, those numbers allow the franchisor to form special relationships with industry members and business services to get franchisees best-in-the-industry pricing.

On top of that, the networking possibilities with a large brand and hundreds of peers are endless. When you own a landscaping business on your own, you don’t have a network to work with. But when you own a franchise, you are automatically part of a group of people who are in your same industry, share your struggles, and can help you in your work. The franchise network is a great source for business ideas and inspiration, which you wouldn’t have otherwise.

If you are a veteran looking for a post-service career, franchise ownership is an excellent choice! Franchising gives you the chance to own your own business and join a team of smart, hard-working people just like you. Your experience in the armed forces makes you an amazing asset on the U.S. Lawns franchise team, and we are looking for people like you to provide commercial landscape services to your community.

We Want YOUR Experience

It is no secret that many franchisors love working with veterans. Military vets make amazing franchise owners because you learned some essential skills during your time in uniform. The following three skills are some of the biggest things we look for in our franchisees, and veterans have all of them right off the bat.

  1. You Can Follow a System—During your military service, you learned the importance of following the systems set in place. This is an important skill in franchising as well, where following the system that has been proven to work time and time again is a key to success.
  2. You Are a Practiced Leader—One of the limiting factors in franchising, especially commercial landscape services, is the owner’s ability to lead a team. Few life experiences teach leadership as well as service in the armed forces, which is why veterans make such amazing leaders and franchisors. Your strong leadership will help you manage your team and grow your business.
  3. You Know How to Accomplish a Mission—Setting goals and taking the steps to accomplish them is critical in owning a lawn maintenance franchise. Your experience executing tasks and accomplishing missions gave you the skills to meet goals on a much smaller scale with your business.

Who Is the Ideal Candidate?

At U.S. Lawns, we are looking for franchisee candidates from a variety of backgrounds, not just military service. Here are some of the top qualities we look for:

As you might have noticed, veterans tend to have these qualities, which is why they are such a valuable addition to the U.S. Lawns team.

No Landscaping Experience Required to be Part of the U.S. Lawns Team

How do we get away with having a huge team of franchisees with no landscaping experience? How could they possibly manage commercial landscape services and a lawn maintenance franchise without experience?

One word: training.

The key to our system is in our training, which prepares our franchisees for every aspect of owning and growing a business. We have over 700 tools that our franchisees use to learn our industry and the U.S. Lawns system, each of which is designed specifically to help you build a strong and scalable business, regardless of whether or not you have owned a business or worked in landscaping. Our outstanding training program and what you learned during your military service combine to make you the ideal franchise candidate.

Veteran Recognition

If you can’t tell, U.S. Lawns values our partnerships with veterans. Our team is our most important asset, and we are constantly seeking ways to improve our business. One way that we do that is by keeping our business model up to the most stringent standards in franchising, and it has not gone unrecognized. We are proud members of the VetFran initiative, which aims to identify the best franchise opportunities for veterans, earning a three star ranking. In addition, Military Times has ranked us one on their Best for Vets list.

At U.S. Lawns, we are so much more than a lawn maintenance franchise. We are a team made up of franchisees and home office personnel, all of us working together to boost each other up. If you are ready to join the U.S. Lawns team, get in touch with us to get started!
