GreenThumb East Lothian

GreenThumb East Lothian is a well-established and successful business, with a current turnover in excess of £125,000. Originally part of a larger territory this area was purchased by the current franchisee in February 2013. Boasting a loyal customer base, despite two substantial customer price increases over the last 3 years, the number of customers has remained consistent.

There are over 20 million gardens in the UK. GreenThumb is the first choice for over 1 million customers, performing millions of treatments every year nationwide. This year-round business provides an excellent opportunity to become a part of the largest lawn care franchise in the UK.

Operating from a unit in the centre of the territory employing a small team of staff, the franchisee is office based whilst the operatives carry out the treatments. The franchisee is expected to manage a team and drive the business forward. Experience in the Garden sector is relatively unimportant, however, sales and marketing experience is vital as well as a strong business acumen.

This business shows excellent potential for growth. There are an estimated 40,000 homes within the territory and a further 6,500 homes planned or under construction. As a result, there is a pool of potential new customers. With the focus from a new franchisee as well as exploring new marketing avenues, customer numbers will increase.

The current franchisee is selling in order to concentrate on a new business opportunity. Providing the opportunity for a new owner to acquire this business and continue to build the customers base.
