    I wish I was Jim,I'm but one of the 2000 franchisees!Its the second most common question we get asked after "Do you mow lawns","Are you Jim".Jim is actually Australian,I'm in New Zealand.Franchising is big down here,it saves a lot of down time as they do all the advertising and send you jobs in your set area,they answer the phone 24hrs and send jobs on your cellphone pager so we can get there real quick.Their advertising is way bigger than a solo operator could dream of,and we generally get the big jobs cause people like to deal with a big reputable firm.Jims is shooting for 5000 franchisees but dont worry their not trying to take over the world each franchisee is their own business.You got a great forum here and I've already picked up some good ideas and talked to some great folks in the chat room.I've put an article in this months newsletter in our area so you might hear from some more of us down hear,happy mowing..............

    Jims have a web site
