Commercial Accounts?

I am just getting ready to start a new buisness with my father-in-law mowing lawns. you has rebuilt tractors and mowers as a hobby for years and now that he is retired he is bored out of his mind and wants to mow lawns. He has already picked out a couple of zero radius mowers with 72 inch decks (think thats right) so he is all gunho.

My job is to get the accounts but I am not quite sure how to go about that. I plan on hitting the large businesses in town and talking with the city governments to see if they do much contracting out. What I need to know is how the typical bid process works. How much do you typically charge per acre, is that how your normally bid, per acre?

I have a feeling this is going to be difficult but I am up to the task, If anyone has some pointers they would be most helpful!
