I dont know if you have heard the books/ reports that Sean Adams put out. I Think his website is http://lawncaresuccess.com

They do cost but they have some really good info for how to bid on commercial accounts.

Give the business a call and ask to speak with the person in charge of property maintenance. Get them on the phone and introduce yourself, BS a little and ask them if and when they will be accepting bids for maintenance. If they do not want a bid then they are happy with who they are with and will not change. If they give you a time frame, go look at the property and mail them a bid. Give them a call 2-3 days later asking them if they received the bid. Good luck.

YOu just have to find the guy in charge of the lawn care for that business. ALot of times, one company will do lawn care for all of those restaraunts in that particluar area. For example, all the McDonalds in your area may have their lawn care done by the same company. However, with other restaraunts, each owner hires his own maintenance out. Again, you have to find out who is in charge. Ask if the lawn care is handled corporately or individually.
