How would you go about raising prices because you realized you under bid. I acquired these properties when I started out about 1 1/2 years ago. We only have a verbal agreement. The properites are 11 fast food resturaunts. All owned by the same man. In the agrement, I maintain the entire property for a regular rate for 44 visits per year. Included is mowing up to 36 times, 200 annual flowers per store, clipping shrubs, weeds in beds and maintaining the mulch. This is my first full year for all 11 stores. So far I am at about $28 per hr, in a 2 man operation. I would like to be closer to $40. Any help would be appreciated.
