How a Lawn Care Franchise works

Franchising is a business model that allows you to run your own independent business as part of an established national brand.

Franchising works well for local businesses that would benefit from the support of a national network. With Lawnkeeper, for instance, our franchisees buy their materials, equipment and advertising centrally, at group discount rates that no independent sole trader could ever achieve. Every Lawnkeeper franchisee still maintains 100% ownership of their business, and reaps the benefits of the work they put in.

When you join a franchise, you get assigned an exclusive area, or franchise territory. You pay an up-front joining fee, which covers all of the training, marketing and equipment needed to start the business. After that, each franchisee in the network contributes a small percentage of their earnings every month to head office.

Lawnkeeper: franchising since 2007

Lawnkeeper has been in business for more than 20 years ... but we’ve run our business as a franchise since 2007.

We’ve expanded steadily over the years, and we’re proud to say that all of our franchisees make good money with our tried-and-tested business model. Our systems have improved to the extent that new franchisees can earn in excess of £45,000 in their first year of trade.

We’re recruiting new franchisees in a number of territories this year, and we’re keen to speak to anyone who might be interested.
