TJ Justice-Just Mowing

I know there was a huge thread on this guy a while back...and that DFW and a few others changed their business style similar to this guy's. Anyways I was wondering if TJ Justice is still on LawnSite? What are your thoughts? Thanks and sorry about bringing up an old thread it just really intrigued me.

Thanks everyone...

If you hit Google, you will find the search is stronger and more flexible. Use the "site:" search operator to help.

site:lawnsite.com "tj justice" "Just mowing"

It looks like 6 years since he's posted (he soured on the site. Just read his last few posts and you'll get the gist) and the topic of his business model and strategy used to come up quite often. Beyond what you can read in the archives, or glean from the web, what is it you're looking to understand? It really just boils down to economies of scale.

What do you mean by economies of scale? large volume? I'm interested in how he got so many customers so fast...

He mows $30 lawns for $20 using imported labor. It isn't hard to figure out the secret to his growth.

Yeah I read that...but that was in 2004. Plus I read that the original $20 flier was only a one time advertising thing. But even so, with his prices, it seems like he has grown his business incredibly quick.

Fast forward to 2012, would he be able to build the business that fast at $35 mows?

I'm curious as well. In his posts he said he relies on volume to keep cash flow out of the red. What happens when you lose customers on a route and can't make a five day week? Running too lean of a business IMO, I'm wondering if he's still around?
