If you own a business, you might never have considered a franchise. You might be skeptical, but it's a terrific option for a lot of people.
It's not right for everyone, but for some – particularly owner/operators who spend a lot of time working in the field – a Driven Landscapes franchise is an excellent option. It can change your life, providing the freedom, flexibility, and financial security you deserve.
Here are Six reasons you might consider converting a business to Driven
We'll get you out of the field
Your business should work for you – you shouldn't work for it.
The Driven Landscapes model is designed to help you build a team that you can trust to run the day-to-day operation, so you can spend your days building and growing your business.
We'll help you get away from the day-to-day grind and job-to-job decision-making.
A lot of landscaping businesses reach a certain point and then stop growing. Data shows that as many as 44% of landscaping businesses do less than $200,000 in revenue per year.1
Driven Landscapes is built around systems that enable strong and sustainable revenue growth.
Being part of a team
Being self-employed doesn't mean you have to go it alone. With Driven Landscapes, of course you'll get all the advantages that come with being part of a larger organization, like buying power and marketing. But you'll also get a lot more.
We don't want to micro-manage you. In fact, we don't want to manage you at all.
We just want to support you, provide the tools to help you succeed, and watch you grow.
Owning a business shouldn't be like a regular job. Why take on the risks and responsibility associated with owning a business just to bust your butt working 12-hour days, feeling like you have to be there all the time.
A lot of people take pride in their strong work-ethic, as well they should. But you can run a business effectively while still enjoying a healthy work/life balance.
You can set your own schedule, take a vacation any time you want, attend all your kids soccer games and school plays, and still have a thriving, successful business.
Working in the field is a young man's game
... and you might be a young man, but you won't be forever.
If you love the smell of grass and the satisfaction of physical labor, that's great. Make it a treat for yourself, not a necessity for your business.
If your business depends on you to be out in the field, you're playing a dangerous game. What happens when you're sick? What about family commitments? How about just being able to take a vacation in the spring, ever?
More to the point, what happens if you slow down physically as you age (and you probably will)? Does that mean the business you've worked on for years also slows down?
Driven Landscapes will show you how to train and delegate to your employees so you can spend more time working on your business instead of for it.
If you're business depends on you to be there every day then, to be really frank, your business is worth nothing without you. Once you're done, it's done. Just sell your truck and there's nothing left.
A Driven Landscapes franchise will be a business that can carry on and continue to thrive without you, whether than means you're taking a long vacation or you decide to semi-retire.
And when you're totally done, you can hand the business down to your children or you can sell it.
Of course, these were just a few of the benefits of a Driven Landscapes franchise. For more, click here.
