Grow your own business with a Gardening Franchise
There are many different franchise sectors to research and compare when contemplating whether being your own boss through a tried and tested system (franchise model) is the way forward for you. One franchise sector that is sometimes overlooked is that of the Gardening franchise industry. It may not have the glitzy advertisement and marketing as some large food and beverage franchise networks may have at their disposal, but a gardening or landscaping franchise could still be the perfect solution for you. Most Gardening franchise opportunities are van based franchises that give you the opportunity work from home and to ultimately grow a management franchise network.
As with most franchises, and mentioned briefly above, most of the marketing advertising through a franchise network is undertaken centrally via head office. The bigger the brand the more recognisable the services are you provide. Having a centralised marketing hub for the entire franchise network is far more beneficial for business owners that have just launched. Ultimately this allows you more time as the new franchisee to focus on delivering the work within your franchise territory, knowing that the lead generation through marketing is being undertaken via the franchise head office.
Most franchisors will apply a marketing levy, that will allocate your franchise territories contribution towards the national marketing budget for the entire franchise network, giving you greater marketing power as a brand and will present you with additional time as head office will be undertaking this task on your behalf.
