    I am going to discovery day next week with lawn doctor. I have been reading over this site for a couple of days now, and I know where some of you guys stand on the franchise systems. However, I am in the franchise business right now (Sport Clips 3 store owner/operator). I had 0 knowledge of hair before I got in that business.
    I am planning on getting a lot of information from them, and I am taking my friend and potential business partner, who happens to be a collegiately educated and career turf guy currently working for another franchise. He wants to step out from Scotts and I am looking to diversify.
    For those of you guys that can/will say:
    (1)What do you average in sales per day in your trucks?
    (2)how many people do you REALLY need to service 25-50K market size
    (3)they say my MSA is actually 4 territories, but they will work with us on drilling them down to "practical" markets. I actually only think there are 2 markets. Anyone have experience with this?
    (4)We have TruGreen, Scotts, and Fairway Lawns. 2 of them have reputations that are failing because they are too big to service their customers well. Do you think the opportunity is right to steal customers from them?

    I'm interested to hear your results when you have them. No knowledge of the doctor other than what you have already...
