What Does My Initial Investment Cover?
November 20, 2018
There are a lot of lawn care franchises out there, but the differentiating factor in finding the best one for you is the initial investment. Franchise investments vary from brand to brand, but all offer three primary benefits: a brand, an operating system, and the training and support needed to execute the system. Needless to say, some franchisors are better at providing value than others and a thorough investigation of this will help you make the right decision.
The U.S. Lawns initial franchise investment covers everything you need to get started with a lawn care franchise, so you do not pay more than you have to in order to pursue your dream career. Here is what you get for the initial investment in a U.S. Lawns franchise.
A Brand You Can Trust
U.S Lawns has been providing grounds care services to commercial customers since 1986. Over that 32 year period, commercial customers have come to know and trust our brand to provide exemplary commercial grounds care through our brand vision of 100% client retention.
Our brand values provide the backbone of our operating system. Those values are strength, professional grade, discipline, efficiency, camaraderie, community, Americana, serving others, responsiveness and organization. If these are ideas that resonate with you, a U.S. Lawns lawn care franchise may be a good fit.
Systems, Tools, Supplies, and Equipment
The initial investment in a U.S. Lawns franchise comes with a comprehensive operating system that has been refined over the years to maximize franchisee value. We provide more than 750 tools and resources for franchisees to use as well as a plan to help implement them into their business. We have broken down all these tools and resources into six systems to help franchisees utilize the right ones at the right stage of their business. The six systems are:
- Sales Process
- Service Execution
- Customer Experience
- Business Management
- People Development
- Owner Development
Aside from the tools and resources that are also part of the franchise investment, we also provide service vehicle branding and branded office supplies, so you can get started immediately after you complete the training.
Through our vendor partnerships, we also offer best-in-industry equipment discounts that come with being a part of a network of more than 250 independent lawn care franchise operators.
Training and Support
With any franchise, training is important to assure you understand the business model before you open your doors. We like to make sure our franchisees feel prepared for what lies ahead with their franchise, which is why our training program involves five days of in-person education at our headquarters in Orlando, Florida and multiple field visits from our support team ensure our franchisees get off to a great start in their territories. The training is an important part of the initial franchise investment because it teaches you everything you need to know about commercial landscaping and how to run a franchise. In fact, our training is so comprehensive that you do not need any previous landscaping experience to invest in a U.S. Lawns franchise.
We teach you a lot over these five days such as horticulture, agronomics, networking, estimating, quality control, and more to help you run your franchise smoothly and execute the business model to its fullest potential. We also provide detailed customer lists of commercial properties in your territory and hands-on training to teach you how to get in front of them.
In addition to the training, the initial investment puts you in direct communication with a support team to help you if you have any questions that arise while running your franchise. We like to make sure you have everything you need for success right from the initial investment to make sure you are prepared.
