This business would be ideal for another landscaping company looking to grow its market share or for an individual investor with desire to own a business in this industry. The owner would like to see the business succeed and is happy to stay on board for a negotiated period to familiarize the buyer with all aspects of the business.
The company currently operates out of a home office.
Currently virtually no marketing efforts are in place and most business comes from referrals and word of mouth. Vehicle graphics have been an excellent magnet for new clients. With long standing respect in the community and fresh energy of a buyer this business is poised for continued growth and expansion.
Outstanding reputation, integrity and team work ethics allows the company to retain solid sales year after year. This business is in unique space as most landscapers are focused on lawn care and do not possess enough specific knowledge about plants while independent gardeners are unable to handle the workload of higher-end clientele.
Seller will provide all necessary training to insure smooth transition.
