    USL will not allow you to service clients out of your area only if there is an existing franchisee in that area.

    USL does not allow for absentee owners. They require an owner/operator.

    1)Does this mean you will be doing the mowing and labor, etc?

    2)Does this mean you are in charge of running the operation EXCPET for the manual labor?

    3)If "yes" to number 2, is there a strict schedule where you are to be in a certain "area" or what have you, at certain hours, ie: 9-6 mon-sat. ?

    Very interesting thread as I am contemplating GG's.

    To NO RUSH & SKIPSTER - since this thread started a while ago, have you taken the plunge? How is it going? Etc. Etc.

    Thanks

    We decided against the franchise route and developed our own business. We are free to cover any area we choose.
