Looking to start your own business and love the outdoors?
Have the best of both worlds with TruGreen Professional Lawncare
Whether you have no previous experience in the lawncare industry or have worked as a Groundsman before, TruGreen is the perfect franchise opportunity for those who have the ambition and enthusiasm to launch, build and manage their own thriving business.
Established in Michigan, USA over 40 years ago, TruGreen is the longest established lawn care franchise network in the world. With a wealth of experience and solid reputation, TruGreen has set itself apart from the competition. In 1990, the business was acquired by world-renowned home services specialists ServiceMaster and now treats over 3.4 million lawns worldwide; ServiceMaster Ltd has over 50 years of UK franchising experience.
TruGreen are currently looking for individuals to become part of the family. If you have a passion for the outdoors and the enthusiasm for business, we would like to hear from you! Request our FREE prospectushere.
A lucrative market
With nearly 90% of the UK’s 27 million homes boasting gardens, the potential for TruGreen franchisees in the residential lawncare sector is immense; success can also expand further into the commercial market.
Franchise owners capitalise on this lucrative and growing marketing thanks to our long-standing experience and expertise within the field. Additionally, TruGreen franchisees offer bespoke lawn care treatments and additional services throughout the year to both residential and commercial clients.
If a TruGreen franchisee services just 4% of the homes within their bespoke territory, they would have a profitable business.
How much does a TruGreen franchise cost?
The cost of the TruGreen Starter Package is £28,000 + VAT.
This includes the Franchise License which allows franchise owners to trade under the TruGreen brand name and covers initial training and certifications by the National Proficiency Council, NPCT, and covers the marketing of your business launch and the purchasing of tools, supplies, equipment, products, stationery, bespoke software, vehicle branding and marketing material you will need to get going. All you will need is a computer and van of your own.
TruGreen is able to offer advice on financing your franchise investment. We’ll happily help and guide you with your business plan to make your journey to franchise ownership as smooth and as easy as possible. You will need to find 30% of the total cost; the 70% may be financed by one of the major high street banks (subject to status).
