Training and Support Program

Depend on the Power of the Network

Owning a U.S. Lawns franchise means joining a close network of supportive peers and mentors across the nation. From coast to coast, our 250+ locations follow the same processes, receive the same training, and strive for the U.S. Lawns standard of excellence.

Being part of the network has other advantages. Like a dedicated Advisor who’s assigned to help you reach your business goals from day one. Or the purchasing power of a national company when it comes to buying supplies and equipment.

Assistance is never more than a phone call away. Our national support team is always there to answer your questions and provide you with advice. As a U.S. Lawns franchisee, you are never alone. Go in business for yourself, not by yourself.

National Organizations and Local Partnerships

In addition, U.S. Lawns is active in organizations whose members include our clients and prospective clients: property managers and commercial property owners. We build these relationships at the local, regional and national level, so that we may better understand the needs of our customer base.

Our goal is 100% customer retention.

Join a Family

Because territories are protected, our owners never compete for business. Instead, they form strong bonds of camaraderie. We constantly hear about the support franchisees give one another, whether it’s advice or referrals. Franchisees participate on committees and elect members to bring relevant ideas from the field to the Home Office. That team spirit is part of every Annual Conference, especially when everyone stands to join in the U.S. Lawns chant. We simply love what we do, and the positive attitude is contagious.
