Edâ€™S Garden Maintenance announces growth beyond expectations as the service provider celebrates its first birthday.
– Edâ€™S beats plan for 6 operators in first year as it takes on 10 franchisees –
Edâ€™s Garden Maintenance, a provider of prompt, reliable and efficient services to maintain gardens in Southern England, is enjoying a double celebration this week as it marks its first birthday as a franchise operation and its enormous success during its inaugral year which has seen the business achieve 10 franchises.
Since establishing in 2007, smashing its first year franchise target by a massive 67%.
The franchise operation was founded in March 2007 by Edward Mauleverer with ambitions to grow to 6 operators across the London and South East England region within its first year. Edâ€™S Garden Maintenanceâ€™s outstanding success sees the company become one of the fastest growing franchise operations within the garden maintenance service industry in Southern England.
Further evidence of Edâ€™S success is that each of the 10 operators has exceeded their own individual business plan targets and all those that have completed their first year have generated significantly more than Â£40,000. This positive result is attributed to a state of the art franchise management, business support and work allocation system which Edâ€™S has instated, guaranteeing each operator work worth in excess of Â£10,000 to get them going. Matched by each operatorsâ€™ pro-active approach to generating work and raising awareness of their services within their chosen serviceable regions, Edâ€™S Garden Maintenance franchise is proving to be a formula for success.
Edward Mauleverer reflects on the past, â€˜As a youngster, I joined a charitable service providing garden clearance services for the elderly and enjoyed the satisfaction of transforming a jungle into a respectable garden within an afternoon. As a husband and a recent father, I wanted to turn my love of the outdoors into a financially-viable vocation.â€™
He says, â€˜Through a well established network of operators, we are now delighted to be able to deliver the prompt, reliable and efficient services that Edâ€™s Garden Maintenance is well-known for across London and the South of England.â€™
Edward continues, â€˜I have put in place a formula for a successful operation. Every operator joining Edâ€™s Garden Maintenance benefits from training in regular garden service and business management, monthly meetings to assess and develop their business plans, marketing support and the guidance of a business coach. Not to mention a new career that offers flexible working hours, a work/life balance to suit each operator, and the opportunity to be their own boss at a relatively low initial financial outlay.â€™
All operators are part of the Edâ€™s Recycling Programme to dispose of green waste effectively.
