    Before anyone starts bashing Rusty's thread , I can assure you he didn't mean for this to be what you guys are calling a D*ck measuring contest .. Its just a question out of curiosity to what some of the guys on this site are doing.. Also its motivating to hear some of the guys that have over a 100 accounts speak out , gives inspiration to the smaller companies ...

    Well if that is the case back to my original post. I don't think number of accounts tells you much. I have accounts that are budgeted for 16 M/H per week and others that are budgeted for 30 min every other week. So that's 2 accounts but it could be 65 if the time for the first accounts time was split to be spent like the second account.

    A landscape, hard-scape or applicator company will do a higher $$ volume of work because they sell a product besides labor. Where as a maint company just sells labor for the most part.

    So if you are trying to get an idea of the size of a company I think # of employees would give you a better mental picture of their operation.

    Just saying you know.

    I have 6 full time field employees. Last year I had 9 but people have cut back this year.
