Greenfeet Irish Lawn Care Franchise Opportunity
To understand the size of this opportunity you just need to take a look out of your window at your own lawn.
Chances are that it is riddled with weeds. Throw in a few kids or pets and more often than not the average Irish lawn is not in a good state of repair.
Even when cut regularly, without proper care and treatment, what is typically the largest area of your garden can simply look a mess.
With over 500,000 houses in Ireland the majority of which have a garden and lawn spells a huge opportunity for Greenfeet who operate a specialist lawn treatment service.
Established in 2008 by Anthony & Caroline Fitzpatrick Greenfeet has grown rapidly and currently has 12 franchisees operating throughout Ireland.
Anthony has over 20 year experience in the field of green keeping most notably as course superintendent in the Slieve Russell in Co Cavan and the high profile Heritage Golf & Spa Resort in Killenard Co Laois which recently hosted the European Tours finest in the Seve Trophy.
This means that even though you might not have lawn care experience it doesn’t matter as the training and ongoing support which Anthony and his team provides to its franchisees is second to none.
So what kind of person would make a good Greenfeet franchisee? Well for a start you are going to enjoy working outdoors all year round in all weathers. You will also need to be personable and able to meet home owners from all walks of life. You will be the type of person that takes pride in a job well done and not afraid to put in the initial hard work needed to get a business growing.
You will also need to be organised and reliable as a large part of your success will be based on showing up when you say you will and delivering the service to the customers expectations. You don’t necessarily need to be a whiz at sales and marketing as the Greenfeet lawn care franchise provides you with a detailed marketing plan and proven sales and marketing materials.
In return Greenfeet offers a solid proven business model which has a large emphasis on repeat business. This means that every time you gain a new client, if you treat them right, then they will provide you with a residual income. So you can build a solid business, with a healthy level of income and further down the line have the option to grow in your designated area by perhaps introducing a second van.
Overheads for a Greenfeet franchise are also very affordable. There is no need for expensive premises and all the costs associated with that. You will operate from a van and all the administrative side of the business can be completed from home on the laptop which comes with the Greenfeeet lawn treatment business. As you would expect from a franchise all the other tools and equipment that you will need are included in your lawn care franchise package.
Greenfeet still has franchises left in the following areas: Dublin North West, Meath, Kildare, Carlow, Wexford, Waterford, Limerick, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary, Donegal, Sligo, Cavan and Roscommon. Franchise fees vary depending on the area.
If you think this opportunity might be for you then you can contact Greenfeet for more information. You need to act fast to secure your area as once it is gone then that is it, and the franchise is proving very popular.
Don’t leave it on the long finger and then kick yourself in a few months time when you see the new Greenfeet van in your area with someone else smiling behind the wheel!
