John's gardening business

Choosing the right team

Hemel Hempstead and surrounding area.

Before running my Ed's gardening franchise I worked in the police force. On leaving I took the opportunity to do something I had wanted to do for a long time, run my own gardening business. I had originally thought that I might go it alone but had two areas of concern with this. The first was marketing and how to get a big enough bang for my buck in this area, which I know can be a black hole in terms of costs. The second was that even if I got the marketing right, how could I ensure that I would be able to respond to the customer quick enough to win the job when I was busy actually doing gardens? Being a former policeman I know just how important rapid response times are! As soon as I came to an Ed's Discovery Day I knew that I would get a lot of support in both of those areas. The fact that enquiries would bounce straight to my phone was especially impressive! What's more I immediately liked the company's honest and realistic description of what was required to be successful and its dynamic approach to business. The icing on the cake is that the costs are not excessive. Decision made! I did look at other franchises alongside Ed's but there was no question which team I wanted to be part of. Very early days for me but I have high hopes for my future with Ed's.

The best of the bunch

Andy / Ealing

Before joining Ed's I was a project manager for a kitchen supplier. Although it was great for developing organisational skills, I hated my job. I'd flirted with the idea of running my own business for a long time and had looked at a number of franchises but none of them seemed to have any substance...

Keeping it in the family

Nick / Sevenoaks

I've been with Ed's since 2014, which was around the time my brother-in-law started his Ed's franchise. I was always heavily involved in the business and when Neil earned enough to fund his long term goal of moving with his family to Cornwall, I took the driving seat. We really do have a great busin..

Steering my own ship

I have a love of the outdoors and growing things having spent time on a friend's farm growing up in Yorkshire. I have three allotments and I am a past chairman of St Ives Allotment Association.
