ManageMowed Ready for Fine-Tuned Franchise Expansion
ManageMowed is revving up for growth, primed to expand the emerging commercial landscape management brand as a national franchise with staying power.
Edmonds, Washington-based ManageMowed aims to turn the $80 billion-plus landscape industry on its head with a highly-refined franchise blueprint built on simplicity. For franchisees, there's no mowing required. The brand, which launched its strategic franchise initiative in April, makes its innovative mark focused on sales and management of both client relationships and a network of locally-owned and operated crews.
“After 20 years in the game and fine-tuning our model, we're operating at peak performance,” says Peter Roberts, co-founder of ManageMowed. “We have a subcontracting model that works, and we're ready to make a huge impact for both clients and new franchisees across the country.”
Roberts and co-founder James Jakobsen bring a wealth of industry experience to ManageMowed, launched in 1999 as a traditional landscape company. Over the years, the company shifted its mindset away from equipment and hiring toward a green way of operational thinking and labor management
“In the U.S. there are over 500,000 estimated landscape businesses, with 75 percent of them considered owner-operators,” notes Roberts. “It is such an underutilized workforce for us.”
ManageMowed sells the work, manages client and vendor relationships, and ensures quality control. It’s an innovative, proven approach that allows the company to deliver “impeccable client service” and deliver some of the highest customer satisfaction and retention rates in commercial landscaping.
“We've built a model that makes us easier and better to work with, which has given us a major competitive edge in the markets of Seattle, Denver, and Portland, where we already have a presence,” says Roberts. “And, since we don't manage laborers, we don't have to deal directly with unreliability or laborers leaving to start their own business.”
As an emerging brand, franchisees have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a proven brand. Franchise partners can be assured their voices will be heard, says Roberts.
“We want to hear opinions, incorporate feedback, and leverage the entrepreneurial instincts of our franchisees, and the first ones in will have access to our team, to do just that,” says Roberts. “Early franchisees will be able to see their business grow and expand operations—and revenue—as territories will be available.”
ManageMowed offers a unique, low investment, low overhead franchise model. The franchise provides quick ramp-up time, recurring revenue, and the ability to achieve a favorable work-life balance.
The brand is equipped with a thorough franchise support structure, complete with training, operations, marketing, and technology systems for its franchisees. With thousands of landscaping crews available nationwide, ManageMowed has a network of professionals in every type of region and environment. With the recent launch of franchising, ManageMowed has its sights on rapid growth. The franchise plans to be a national brand within the next five years.
“This is a true entrepreneurial experience—you get to shape the business and build our brand recognition in your market,” says Roberts. “This allows you to flex your business muscles and make an impact, beyond just buying into an established system.”
