This company was established over almost 32 years ago. Initially, it was a simple "mow and blow" business serving predominantly residential customers. It has grown to become a statewide operation specializing in commercial landscaping, grounds maintenance, irrigation repair and mulch installation. Most of the company's customers are in the DFW area, but they have acquired a large number of accounts in other Texas communities, including Houston, Austin and San Antonio. The primary elements contributing to this impressive growth are: Premium customer care, outstanding reputation and happy/motivated employees who consistently deliver 5-Star service and results. The average tenure among employees with the firm is an almost unheard of 20 years!
The business headquarters could easily be relocated, but the employees currently report to a 3,000 square foot storage facility Monday-Friday where the equipment is efficiently stored. It is centrally located in the DFW metroplex for convenient in-and-out access to major highways enabling workers to provide timely service to their loyal customers. The low-rent lease is renewed annually with nominal increases each year.
There is significant potential for growth in this industry, especially in the large markets that the company already serves. There are several other large metropolitan markets into which it could expand. Continued state-wide growth is attainable if a marketing plan is properly executed.
The is an abundance of competition in this industry, especially in a large market like the DFW metroplex. However, after 32 years in business, this company is not in significant danger of losing customers to its competition. Excellent customer service, combined with competitive pricing have contributed to steady growth and longevity.
Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost The new owner should have basic management and bookkeeping skills to track sales, invoicing and payroll. Also, the owner will be required to submit competitive bids to prospective customers (current owner will train on this, of course). Given an individual with reasonable skills and minimal direct knowledge of this business, it would likely take 2 or 3 months of training in order to be able to run this business.
