    Most of them in my area look like crap! That leads me to believe they look at price alone and are not interested in the extras like mulch, color, or even replacing what has died. It could be dependant on the regional management though.

    We have a couple of them up here. If you want to do the work, bid it very low. These places look like hell, they go on price. No beds, bad lawns, etc. There is a company that comes up from MD to do the ones around here, they also do Sheetz. I can't say the name, but I know they're not huge (that eliminates a couple), but 4 guys in a truck knock a place out in about 20 minutes.

    My in laws do there plowing around town here and also there distribution center. I know they never had a problem getting paid, I imagine the chunk they pay is a fairly good amount.
