“How much could I earn with a commercial landscaping franchise?” It’s impossible to say for sure how any new business venture will fare. With so many variables at play (such as the size and location of your business) any franchisor who promises certain success wouldn’t be honest. However, looking at typical performance and speaking with actual franchisees and listening to their first-hand experiences can provide you with the information you need to make an educated guess about return on investment (ROI). Here, we’ll take a look at a few indicators that could answer the question: “How much money can I make with U.S. Lawns?”
A Sneak Peek at Our Item 19
If you’re unfamiliar with franchising, you might be wondering what an Item 19 is. Every franchisor is required to produce a franchise disclosure document (FDD) that includes information on the cost of the investment, franchisor support, and so forth. One part of the FDD, Item 19, is optional. In that section, franchisors report on the performance of their franchisees. Because U.S. Lawns values transparency, we’re proud to include a detailed Item 19 in our FDD. Reviewing it is a great way to better understand “How much could I earn with a commercial landscaping franchise?”
One key figure from our 2020 Item 19 is a table that breaks down the average gross sales of our franchisees. Business that were open for at least five years reported average gross sales 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.
