Owning a TruGreen Franchise represents a year-long business where you will provide tailored lawn care treatments to your customers and encompass a host of management activities that go with building up a multi-van business.

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?

Franchisee Case Studies

TruGreen Franchisee

Second territory purchase for TruGreen franchisee!

Early in 2018, George Michaela underwent significant training with us and became the proud owner of TruGreen West Midlands along with his son, Paul.

However, when he heard earlier this year that a territory next door to him was up for sale due to the retirement of the business owner, he decided to extend his network and purchase TruGreen Arden.



Super September for TruGreen

The year 2020 has brought many unexpected challenges to most businesses and TruGreen are no exception. Whilst our lawn care business could mainly operate on the whole because of the ability to socially distance, not all of our customers continued with their services due to the uncertainty surrounding disposable income.
