We have a lot of work and I was reading in a business book that if you have a lot of work raise your prices. You may lose some but you will always keep good accounts that way. I'm a bit apprehensive as I will be in the top pricing of the market but I don't want to compete with the lowballers.... (Going $60/F&WC and $115 aeration up to 4000ftsq - that's most lawns - with a 20% PP disc.). Glad you are having success with your franchise! Thx BM, Merry Christmas.
Your pricing seems good. I might not offer as much of a prepay discount though. We offer 10% and typically get 42-44% of our customers to prepay- very nice for cash flow.
