This business was established by the current two partners eleven years ago and was originally started as a home based business. The legal structure of the business is set up as a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) and each partner is a 50% owner. The business provides landscaping and snow removal services primarily to the residential market with a minimal number of commercial customers. Due to the other business interests the current owners are involved with, the business has been operated often on a part time basis. For the right owner who is focused on growing the business, there is incredible room for growth. The owners also own and are selling a company that sells mulch and top soil etc. This business feeds the landscaping company with loads of work for those customers who are purchasing mulch and/or top soil and then want them to spread it. It makes total sense for a buyer of this business to look at purchasing the mulch business as well. It is listed for sale as well at a price of $59,900.
The business is located in a warehouse type facility and the business leases approximately 1200 square feet on a year to year lease. The owners of the building would be willing to do a five year lease should a buyer be interested. The space includes a garage area for storing equipment, small office area and plenty of space to park trucks, trailers, etc. There is room for expansion should the need arise to do so. There are no environmental issues known on the property. Should a new owner be interested in relocating the business, that is a possibility.
The potential for growth is phenomenal. The business is located in the fasted growing county in the state of Pennsylvania (Cumberland). This also happens to be where most of their large customer base is located. There are many actions that can be taken by a new owner to grow the company. Just to name a few, a new owner could advertise (which has not been done in the past), develop a website, establish a social media presence, develop a step by step action plan regarding growth of the business, use yard signs when performing work at an actual job site to advertise the company and joining organizations that provide networking opportunities to promote the business. These are just a few things that could create significant growth.
There is an extremely large market of potential customers regarding the residential and small business commercial market. Competition does exist, but in this geographic area of extraordinary growth there is more than enough business to grow significantly for the companies that do reputable work.
Partners have other business interests/ventures.
Will train for 2 weeks @ no cost The business provides lawn services, mulching, maintenance, design, planting and snow removal. They do not currently do fertilizing type work, but a new owner certainly could add this service should they want to obtain the required licensing. The services they provide are primarily to the residential market but they do service a few smaller commercial clients as well. When it comes to snow removal, they specialize in neighborhood type accounts. They have one account that is contracted on a flat fee basis at $3,000 per month. This means that regardless of whether it snows or not the client pays $3,000 per month for snow removal. Of course this makes for a good guaranteed cash flow situation during the winter months.
