Interesting data point I found...
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in my county in the year 2010, there were 7 reported Landscaping Services serving the area. First quarter payroll came in at $80,000 (or $11,429 each) and annual payroll came in at $533,000 (or $76,142.85 each).
I spit that out there for you guys under the impression that there is opprotunity out there and a few pennies to be had.
7 companies sounds about right, off by maybe one or two now.
In the county, there is a population of 38,861, and the average person is 39 years old, and makes $38,705.
I am not asking for anything specific, but how do those numbers stack up to your own? Sound about right or way off? Obviously location and individual business practices plays a HUGE part into this, so I understand that these numbers, as pretty as they may seem to be to me, must be taken with a grain or two of salt.
