How would 100.00 an hour be no meat on the bone? I pay my guys any where from 10 to 14 an hour. Realistically, with labor and fuel costs you would be looking at around 40.00 an hour cost operating. Thats why it is important to try and bunch your properties on a good route with little drive time.
The problem could be that a big company looks for a profit of around 8%. What do you expect? I am talking about Brinkman and TruGreen kind of size.
