Franchise Info

greenthumb franchise

GreenThumb pioneered lawn care in the UK in 1986 and continues to lead the way in the industry some 36 years later. GreenThumb offers a truly nationwide lawn care service with over 220 franchised territories tending to the needs of over 465,000 customers.

Our franchise network is fully supported by a professional and dedicated team of over 70 individuals based at our impressive Head Office in North Wales.

We carry out an all-year-round programme of treatments; winter work proving to be most profitable. Our customers receive a highly professional service to ‘feed and weed’ their lawn for LESS than it would cost them to do the job themselves. They can also benefit from a range of other services such as scarification and hollow-tine aeration.

As one of the most prominent, successful and long-standing franchise concepts in the UK, we have won a number of franchising and marketing awards. We continue to lead the way in franchising by recruiting the best franchise candidates available. 

Investors in the GreenThumb brand can expect excellent returns, with re-sales of existing businesses being in great demand. The business model returns high profitability levels year upon year within a true management franchise format. This is a franchise for those wishing to build a team, generate many thousands of customers and ultimately create significant wealth.

“I originally looked at a number of Franchisors before choosing GreenThumb, because of the high level support they offered... ...none have the weight of history and experience to draw upon, along with a reputation for ethical franchising and trading.”  GreenThumb Franchisee

Purchase an existing GreenThumb business

With a franchise model created in 1997 and over 220 franchised territories, some of our franchisees have been trading for almost 20 years. Therefore, businesses come up for sale for various reasons including retirement, relocation, or the franchisee simply wants a return on their initial investment.

Current existing businesses for sale:

This is not an exhaustive list. Other resales are due to come on the market, so if your area is not listed, please ask.

We also have a number of virgin territories remaining in SW Scotland, South Wales and Norfolk, please enquire below for more information on these areas.

How we train and support you

GreenThumb prides itself on preparing new franchisees for the journey ahead through a comprehensive training course. Areas you can expect to learn about during the 13 day training course, in our purpose built training facilities at our Head Office, are as follows:

• Extensive technical lawn training • GreenThumb database training • Marketing workshop • Business planning • Sales workshop • Customer Service • Direct Debit training • Health & Safety, tailored to running a GreenThumb franchise • PA1/PA6 training and examination.

The highly experienced support team at Head Office is 70+ strong and is dedicated to supporting franchisees in a range of different specialities, such as Business Growth, Marketing and IT.

The in-house Customer Support Centre works on behalf of the franchise network such as restarting lapsed customers, increasing winter revenue and upselling our additional services. The conversion rate is high, with projected revenue in excess of £2million per annum.

Ideal Partner

GreenThumb’s brand position is built on the foundations of recruiting only the highest quality franchisees. 

We are a Management Franchise and are looking for partners who can demonstrate a combination of drive, sales ability, real business acumen and management experience.

You therefore don’t have to have lawn care experience, as we are looking for people who can manage and grow a team of lawn operatives and continue to grow an existing business, taking it to the next level.
