Now im not saying I want to be like the people im getting ready to describe....but for anyone that knows inside workings of these larger companies HOW IN THE HECK DO THEY DO IT? Im sure every large city has these big player LCO's. Im in Charlotte NC and have dozens that do in the millions every year. Anyway to point out a few. Ecoscape solutions group. They started in 2005 and were on lawn & landscapes list of top 100 companies #70. I think they are in the 10-15 million a year range. It all started as two much much smaller companies merging. How do you go from two partners and 2-3 trucks to over 300 employees in 7 years? I know a good solid team of sales people & a good marketing campaign helps but this is to the extreme. They had to be doubling in size every 4-6 months to get to where they are. I don't even see how you can get credit lines that big to help with those growing pains. The other company is Providence landscape group.... They were formed in 2006 I beleive. They have some of the most beautiful trucks on the road. All of them are isuzu crew cab cabovers with vanscape bodies on them that have full wraps. I think last I saw passing their shop they had 8-10 of them in a line and then some other trucks. I know some can put on a great show with smoke & mirrors....but geez. Makes some of us "normal" guys wonder what we are doing wrong & what could we change.
