In addition to all the other great reasons to buy a franchise, the landscaping industry offers great opportunity, generating $78 billion in annual revenue and growing rapidly.
To give you an idea about just how big the landscaping industry is and how much opportunity there is, let's compare to other popular and well-known industries in the US.
Here are a bunch of other reasons to start a landscaping business with a Driven Landscapes franchise
Low cost of entry
A landscaping franchise is much less expensive to start when compared with other popular options. Some retail and fast-food franchises cost $500,000 or more to start, including $100,000 or more just for the franchise fee.
A Driven Landscapes lawncare franchise can start as a home-based operation, meaning lower overhead and faster business ramp-up.
No experience required
If you have some leadership skills or management experience, that's great! But, really, there is no specific experience necessary, and no landscaping experience necessary.
Mostly, we're looking for people with an entrepreneurial spirit and a drive to succeed. We'll teach you everything else you need to know.
Great chances for success
The numbers vary depending on who you listen to, but they all show the same thing: Starting a small business can be risky. According to the Small Business Administration, about 1/3 of new businesses fail within 2 years and about half fail within 5 years.
Buying a Driven Landscapes franchise means you'll be working with a proven, successful business model in a strong industry. We're going to coach and support you, doing everything we can to make sure you not only survive, but thrive!
Owning a business isn't just a job. Successful, happy business owners don't treat it that way. When you own a business, you make the rules; you set your own priorities.
We'll teach you how to choose the right kinds of employees, train them, and then delegate to them so that they can handle the day-to-day work and you can focus on building and growing your business.
You get the freedom to set your own schedule, and the flexibility to take time off when you need or want it. And as your business grows, you'll build the financial security you deserve.
Even though there is a low initial cost and you can start small, there is almost unlimited potential for growth. Unlike some industries, there will always be demand for professional, reliable landscaping companies.
There are no companies or brands that currently dominate the landscaping industry, so there is nothing blocking you and Driven Landscapes from taking market share and keeping it!
