I would appreciate any input helping me see my options. This would be a life changing decision for my family. I am considering expanding to a city 50 miles away that has 3.3 times the population and a 2ish month longer mowing season while still running my business at my current location. We currently earn an above average income, but we have about maxed out our growth potential in our service area of 40k people. What options do I have to minimize driving there every single day to do quotes? What verbiage should I use on the estimate to give people a good sense of the price, without being exact so I don't have to be there? I have mowing and fertilization & weed control down well if it's on google, but bush trimming, weeding, and landscape weed spraying are the services I am unsure about. What options do you see for me to get going initially? I could offer a proven employee the job in the new location to start at 0 clients and take care of all the labor down there this first year. This would involve him moving, renting a facility for the equipment etc. Another option is hiring someone new that already lives there, working with him till he is trained well, then send him off on his own and let him work solo under my supervision. I figure I would hit 80-160 clients the first year which might involve needing to hire a second guy. What headaches do you see me potentially having? What options do you see for the above scenarios?
