They don't really send you anything, couple of links to some articles. They rather you go to their headquarters in Waco, Tx. to see how everything works.

I think owning a mowing franchise is a great idea!

As a matter of fact, I just started one 10 minutes when I was on the can!

Here's what you do. Go out and buy $75k worth of equipment, trucks, and trailers. Now bleed, sweat, and advertise and get a whole bunch of clients.
Now, send me $75k and I'll send you a couple of truck door magnets and some letterhead.

Can't afford it? No problems, I have some ex-Lehman Brothers employees on speed dial who keep in touch Bernie Maddoff and we can set you up with a sub-prime mortgage broker who can get a loan at 5% but will probably end up at 10-20% when the smoke clears. The cost of doing business! No worries! Keep sending me $1k every month. You better do it, or I'll take my door magnets back.

If you ever run into any problems, I'll give you my nephews phone number, and he'll walk you thru anything you need. Bingo. Recipe for nothing but success.

Send your $100k to: Aaronnc dba Valleybrick-McGrounds USA

I've got some Nigerian e-mail address pyramid schemes also this week only 50% off!!!

You have to think for a moment. They have a system that small landscaping and lawn service companies could not afford the start up money gets you going right of the bat they a marketing and sales, a National brand image strategic Accounts, social media, operation Synergy Owner and employee sales and marketing training. I can keep going these are components that are worth millions you really need to look into it I am considering the franchise, it is very hard for some one to do sales and run the business at once and if you are smart enough you get people to do that for you.

Went and visited there site in Waco TX and enjoyed there campus... Very organized company... Is it for everybody??? As for the fees, not to piece compared to other franchises in this industry... The support and discounts might make it worth it if they can deliver the national accounts to talk to...
I have all the equipment you wish you had!!!

Franchise's are just another scab on the industry plain and simple companies like this here in Canada will go to no extent to lie cheat and steal work from the private businesses we have had to threaten multitudes of the so called professionals with legal action over their practices they are known to follow our trucks around wait for you to leave then attempt to poach the job to conclude my little rant be careful when they are around their practices are very questionable and dangerous for companies like myself
