Sounds like your off to a good start... any Commercial?
Dam Dude! How many hours is that a week?
Arond 42-45 hours... Fairly tight route.
HOLY CHIT! Man, are you considering hiring some one to help?
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 ...
Thank you! Its just like you said, its curiosity, and it helps inspire me, i wanna be big some day like Pro Turf or Johnny Nicholas...
Not at a 40 - 45 hour work week. If I get to around 60-65 accts. I will hire someone on for a few days a week...
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.
I service about a billion accounts.
nope no commercial this year dont really want any either
woo who, 100 votes! lets keep voting!
