We pride ourselves on the start-up support we provide new franchise owners to help them get off to a successful beginning. Kent Fisher recently converted the lawn care portion of his business to Spring-Green Lawn Care, and over the past few weeks he has learned a lot from the corporate support center starting with a training and business planning session. Before converting, Kent felt that the lawn care services part of his business was stagnant, and he wanted to learn how to operate it effectively and increase revenue. Spring-Green’s systematic operation and training should make a big difference.
Kent came to our corporate support center for his initial training, and then a member of our support team went to Indiana with Kent to begin the in-field training. Our support team helps with staff development, computer support and in-field marketing support. Over the next few years, Kent and our other new franchise owners will receive daily communication, including conference calls and field visits in the first and second year of ownership. In addition to teaching new owners about lawns and tress, our support team provides valuable business advice. We focus on the areas that are most critical to the success of the business.
Our training and support practices go along with our philosophy that we are helping our franchise owners build a business for themselves, but not by themselves. We’ve been doing this for more than 35 years so we have fine-tuned our process.Spring-Green is committed to having a mutually beneficial franchise owner-franchisor relationship. The training Kent is receiving right now is a great example of both groups working together.
