    If there is a limiting factor in this business it's your ability to build and manage a team. It starts with recruiting the right employee and continues with transferring your Company's DNA (vision, values, knowledge, culture) to that person. Then you must activate and empower them to carry out the mission.

    I got ya, that's why I asked and thanks for the information.

    If some one had a real interest could you arrange for the to spend the day with one of your "investors/joiners/franchiesors"?

    Are you "sellers" also running a lawn service out of your office and could that operation also be visited?

    Sorry for all the quotes but Im not sure what you are selling?

    Yes people spend time with our franchisees frequently before joining U.S Lawns.

    We also invite interested candidates to spend the day with us at our home office in Orlando. Understand, our home office is a training and support facility, staffed with people who help our franchisees grow their businesses.
