Countrywide Grounds Maintenance also has the enviable double advantage of both thriving during an economic recession and being unaffected by seasonal variances. Although customers vary in sector and size, all of our clients need to maintain the external physical and visual standards of their premises and facilities throughout the year. This not only improves their customer’s experience but also dramatically increases the overall value of their business. Accordingly, we have a very impressive 95% customer retention rate which provides our franchisees with continuous repeat business year after year (even during an economic recession). The company turnover has risen year on year for 30 years.

As a multi-award-winning management franchise, Countrywide Grounds Maintenance franchise is not only one of the UK’s most successful franchise networks but also the market leader within its own industry.

With large exclusive territories, an impressive blue-chip customer base, extensive national accounts and very low market penetration, each Countrywide Grounds Maintenance franchisee has unlimited growth potential within their own territory.
