Franchise Resales is pleased to be able to offer for sale this profitable and highly successful GreenThumb franchise.
GreenThumb Cambridgeshire and Northants was bought by the current owner as a resale and since purchase in August 2014 has grown customer numbers by 66% to around 2000, turnover to £217,000 and profitably grows year on year. This GreenThumb award winning business is a top performer across a number of GreenThumb measures and prides itself on its continued high performance in customer satisfaction surveys.
There are over 20 million gardens in the UK and GreenThumb is the first choice for over 1 million customers nationwide who benefit from first-class lawn care products and services. The GreenThumb Cambridgeshire and Northants franchise benefits from a healthy mix of both rural and urban customers distributed across a tight territory with an excellent road network – great for managing operational costs. This franchise includes the fourth fastest growing city in the UK and the staggering rate of housing growth has far exceeded the 54,000 homes when the current owner bought the franchise. This gives the new owner an ever-increasing pool of potential new business.
The current owner has deliberately resourced the team to handle significant growth in the immediate future. The business is currently administered from a home office with a centrally located store but this arrangement could easily be adapted to suit personal circumstances. Because of the excellent training offered by the GreenThumb head office training academy gardening experience is absolutely not a necessity. GreenThumb franchisees across the country structure their businesses in a variety of different ways according to their own circumstances. The current owner of this business has chosen to concentrate on sales, marketing and business planning to deliver strong growth but there is opportunity to structure the business differently if required.
In summary, this is a lifestyle opportunity that could be adapted to fit numerous different personal circumstances. So, if you want to buy a thriving, year-round, business in a booming area that has a solid foundation for future growth then do apply for more information.
