With a passion for the outdoors franchising with TruGreen was a no-brainer

Franchisee: Karen Burdett
Franchise: Milton Keynes & West Northants

Karen Burdett operates the Milton Keynes & West Northants franchise and has been a TruGreen franchise owner since February 2012.

After working for over 20 years in a commercial environment, Karen was looking for investment opportunities to set up a business which would give her a career change and a sensible return on investment.

“My passion is the outdoors,” says Karen. “I was more than happy when one of the areas I reviewed came out on top and I decided on lawn care. Not many people realise that lawn care is a quite a technical business so it was important that I had the right backing both technically and through a recognised brand.”

Following thorough research on four lawn care brands, Karen chose TruGreen. “Their business model and professionalism was more evident even from my very first discussions with individuals in the business. It was also learning that Steve Welch, TruGreen Network Manager, would be my support mechanism that really swung it for me as Steve is a highly respected figure in the turf and sporting industry.

“The technical support with TruGreen is second to none and the ServiceMaster Company is full of individuals who you can call on at anytime for support on a range of things– that’s the beauty of going down a franchise route.

“TruGreen has ambitious growth plans and is looking for like-minded, driven franchise owners who want to succeed as part of a professional network of individuals. We need to work together to drive the TruGreen brand to no.1 in the lawn care market. If this appeals to you and you are fit (you need to be), then TruGreen really is a franchise I would recommend.”
