Business Information

GreenThumb – Lancashire

This established business was acquired by the current franchisee in 2003. With a turnover in excess of £190,000, this successful business shows potential. This excellent territory is still maturing and includes two prospering towns. With over 15,000 detached and  43,000 semi-detached homes in the territory. The business is run from a small office and purpose-built storage facility in the heart of the territory. Meaning easy access to the surrounding territory.

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. GreenThumb has an established presence in the area and as a result, boasts exceptionally loyal customers. Many of whom have been customers for over 10 years.

This management business currently employs a team of staff.  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.

Originally purchased as a resale with approximately 1000 customers, the current owner built up the customer base to circa. 3000. He then sold a section of the territory along with approximately 1000 customers. There is excellent potential for future growth from both existing and new customers.
