Diversified lawn care company providing general lawn care, sprinkler install and service, sweeping services, snow removal and equipment/parts sales. Priced to sell at $80k less than fair market value of hard assets! No blue sky included in the sale price.
Company has assembled a team consisting of 3 FT employees, 3 PT employees, and 9 seasonal FT employees. Owner works less than full time hours. Situated in a picturesque town in Southeast Minnesota, this company is approximately 45 minutes outside of the Twin Cities. This company would be a great addition to an existing lawn maintenance business, or standing alone for an owner/operator or someone who wants to hire management. Current owner spends half of work time in customer relations, a fifth of time scheduling and the remaining time doing estimates and sales along with general management duties. Skilled workers take care of the operations of the business, with many employees having been with the company over 2 years. With a solid team of employees that should stay with the company upon sale, this business is a turn key operation.
Current operations space is owned by the business owner. Building is included in the sale price. Owner is also willing to offer a long-term lease for the current operations space. Space utilized now includes 2,250 sq ft of shop space, 2,250 sq ft of storage space, and 4,500 sq ft of showroom and administrative space.
For this operation, sales is an after thought. A focus on sales activities could have a big affect on the revenues of the company. The company currently does very little related to tree care and treatments, and this could be a big avenue for growth. The current owner is confident the most strategic and customer facing employees will stay with the company, meaning there should be little impact to the customer base upon sale.
There are many competitors in the lawn maintenance and snow removal industries. This company differentiates itself by offering superior customer service and response and employing superior equipment.
Owner wishes to downsize business responsibilities.
Will train for 2 weeks @ no cost A keen interest in satisfying customers will go a long way for the new owner. Management of the many employees this company employs will also be a requirement for the new owner. In addition to good customer and employee relations skills, this business requires three licenses to operate: 1) application license for fertilizers and pesticides, power limited technician license for sprinkler work and 3) tree care registry status. The required licenses cost less than $1,000 per year in total.
