I am the owner of a Lawn Care company in Alabama. I have been in the industry nearly one year now. I have done all the work in the afternoons and weekends until now. I have got a contract with a company to cut all of their yards (residentials only) every 10 days. This has added about 50 jobs every 10 days to my workload. I make very good money as a purchasing manager so I do not want to quit until next spring. I family friend has been working for someone else in the business for 5 years. He has made an offer to use my equipment and he will cut all the yards for me for a percentage of the gross. Now for my question, What is an acceptable percentage that I should pay him? The total revenue should be approximately $6000 a month for all of the properties. Thank you in advance for your help.
