    Looking for input from owners or franchise operators in the green industry as a whole wether it be your main source of income or just an add on service.

    Are you satisfied with profitability?
    Are you satisfied with your support from "corporate"?
    Are you satisfied with your marketability or name recognition?
    Are the "requirements" too stringent or liberal?


    I'm looking for a general discussion on franchise operation and ownership pros and cons.

    Thanks.

    i dont think anyone here is dumb enough to have someone in a tie instruct them on how to push a lawnmower and pull weeeds................... at least i hope not.

    It doesn't have to necessarily be lawn care alone, it could be an add on service other than lawn care.



    Nobody has a franchise??????????????????
