What do y'all know about the Franchised Scott's LawnService. They seem to be expanding rapidly & have a heck of a marketing program behind them. I'd think this would be a good opportunity for someone wanting to expand into Ferts while using the best marketed brand recognized name in the industry. What are everyone's opinions?????

The only reason that they are expanding is because they are buying everyone in the area. Personaly I have heard nothing good from any of their customers, or should I say former customers. If you want to sell they are the ones to talk to, they pay on a set price, not on the customers that they keep.

I did read that they were buying alot of different players in your area. It's definately a change. Things happen because of the people that control the oganization. What about the Franhised stores that have everyday Joe's like you & I running them & making a living?

I didn't know that they sold franchise, I personaly would never go into a franchise, you will always be answering to them, and you will always be paying them. There is another recent thread on here about franchise buisnesses, I think that it was about the weedman franchise.
