An off-the shelf business proposition that’s already proven

“We’re not a gardening business – we help you grow your wealth through a new career…”

Would you like to buy an off-the-shelf business with big potential?

If you’re looking for a business to buy that works from the start and also has significant growth potential we can offer you just that.

If you’d prefer to work on a business and see it grow rather than work in it and end up stuck in another job then this really does what you want.

You can start large or small.  If you start small with us you may initially have to do everything yourself, including lawn treatments, but the long term plan leads to you running your own lawn-care business not stuck as just a man in a van.   If you start on a larger scale then it’s a business building job from day one.

Our franchise offers you a new wealth-building career that over time enables you to achieve very good earnings by re-deploying your skills and experience while all the time increasing the value of your business.

We are looking for mature individuals who are good at running things smoothly, know how to keep customers happy with good service and probably haven’t been properly appreciated by their corporate employers.

A Weed Man franchise enables you to create and build your own business whether or not you’ve run your own business before.   Even if you are “the wrong side of 40”  there are ways of building a new career on your previous experience leading to even better earnings and more job satisfaction.  One way is to buy a business .  At Weed Man we believe we offer a particularly good way forward, with a business that’s well established and already proven to work for other people.

Before we get into what exactly we do here’s what this is about.

What we offer you is:

  • A new working life after a first career but building on your experience not throwing it away.
  • Work that’s rewarding, interesting and under your control.   Indeed, we provide a way to set up in business for yourself – but not by yourself, because we’re here to help you.
  • An orderly and sensibly-paced way for you to develop new capabilities that also build on past experience and use some of your existing skills.
  • A wealth-building career.   We aren’t offering “instant money and success” in the form of light-weight, low skilled jobs – like many of the very visible franchises out there.   We are a franchise that requires management skills and experience and builds long-term benefits.
  • A better way to use any available cash from redundancy or from previous investments.  You’ll continue earning and building up your pension.

It’s not gardening!

Just to get one possible misunderstanding out of the way up front.   Despite our name “Weed Man” we are not a gardening business.   If you join us you will not be mowing lawns, trimming plants or doing low-grade, low-paid work.   You will be managing the long-term care of people’s lawns.

If you like to be physically active and outdoors you may be interested in running one of our Local Service Provider businesses which does involve visiting people’s gardens to apply lawn care treatments under a programme of services.

As a Local Service Provider you have your own local exclusive area to operate in.   The difference is that you get paid well for delivering a specialist service.   Delivering regular lawn treatments is one part of the Local Service Provider’s job but this is really a customer service business, where delivering the right high-quality treatment to the right lawn at the right time, and keeping your customers informed when the unexpected happens means you retain the majority of your clients from year to year, and they go on to recommend you to others.

On the other hand, if you have significant management or operational experience and want to invest in something under your control that will give you a good return with less risk than some other forms of investment then one of our Regional Manager Businesses could be what you’re looking for.

As a Regional Manager you operate a number of areas instead of just one – which means this is more about working on the business than working in it.

If you’d like to know more and in particular find out exactly how this could work for you please call 0845 5820 144.
