Case Study One
“Back in 2005 I destroyed my own lawn with products bought from the local shop and had to pay £400.00 to get it re-turfed. I then thought what a great idea it would be if a company could treat it for you so you didn’t burn the lawn. I believed in the lawn treatment aspect from my own personal experience and knew there would be a large market for it. Then there was a LawnHopper® leaflet put through my door. I phoned up as I was intrigued that there was such a service; and I bought four LawnHopper® franchises!
The LawnHopper® MD was so easy to buy from – he was genuine, honest and I immediately felt that I could trust him”.
“The one-to-one training I received from the staff at Head Office was fantastic; the results speak for themselves – I have never been involved in horticulture and my wife has never worked in an office and after the training course we were confident and motivated to go home and successfully run four franchises.
The beauty of franchising is that you are left to your own devices but any problems and you can just pick up the phone with great Head Office support at the end of it. You pay the franchise fee for the privilege of using the LawnHopper® name which has already been tested and proven; the knowledge is already there. You are basically cutting out 10 years of trial and error.
I found the treatments a lot easier to learn than I expected and the office work was very easy to pick up due to the fantastic training.
The fast growth and development that we have achieved is particularly appealing to me as I wish to continue expanding our operation to many, many vans on the road.
LawnHopper® Head Office have completely fulfilled their obligations and more!”
