    Does anybody know anything about us lawns???? Was looking at there web site and noticed they didnt have any in Oklahoma. From what I read it only costs $29,999 to buy into the franchise, it didnt say anything about royalties wonder what those are like.

    J&R the same thing happened to me and not only did they take my accounts by lower price but also are including more services. How they make money off of it i dont know. US LAWNS is owned by VAlley Crest it is their franchise version and also a way to get those accounts who dont want to do business with a big company but little do they all know....................

    I can't see the point of giving someone 30k. All they are going to do is start a marketing and advertising campaign in your area to get you accounts. If you are already in business then you could spend a lot less than that and get as many accounts as they are going to get you. And if you are not in business yet and have that kind of $ then spend it yourself and do the work yourself.
