:D I just wanted to let all of you LCO's in the Vernon Hills, Lincoln Shire, Il. area know your work is awesome... My family and I was in the area last weekend for a family gathering and all the commercial account's looked awesome.. Nice work to all...

I did see several Brickman crews out working, very nice to see a very professional crew working in some nice surroundings.. my hats off to the Brickman group... if you ever want to come to Iowa, call me...:D

No NO NO don't invite them to your town, soo they will have 15 trucks running around charging $20 a man hour.

But then again the power is in numbers.

200 employees producing shall we say $5 net profit off their 40 hour work week..

200 x 40 x $5 = $40,000 net profit a week......Now that's before admin.

while i dont want to compete with Brickman at this point in my life, I can appreciate their business philosophy and would love to emulate it when the time is right.

Well lets get this straight, I would like to run one of their operation for them if they came to town....point blank.....it was very nice to see a nice operation. not that i would want to compete with them, i compete every day with every "Tom,Dick, and Jane out there... so if they came to town they would need some help learning the Market, and at my point in the Business, it would be nice to sit back and let someone else spend the money... Let me put some $$$$$ aside....;)

It would be nice not to have to fork out $20,000 to $40,000
each year to operate, just the Lawn Care Service end of it...
