Full Description


RUN YOUR OWN GARDENING BUSINESS

Clean Cut is a well-established and rapidly expanding network of dedicated, hardworking and professional gardening businesses. It is run by entrepreneurs who are building a thriving, customer-focused enterprise which provides a great standard of living for its franchisees and their families.

The system is the brainchild of Clean Cut founder Simon Studd, who built up his successful garden business in Sussex from the humble beginnings of a lawn mower in the back of his Ford Escort car to a business which runs without him ever having to leave the office.

With proven methodologies in all aspects of a garden maintenance business – marketing, sales, operations, human resources, finance and extensive training – Simon has devised a system based on the support he felt he needed but lacked when he started his business.

Security

The major concern of any new business venture is will it work? With Clean Cut’s proven marketing and delivery methods you can start with absolute confidence of success.

Make money

Our franchisees have the ability to make a significant return on their investment and should recoup their initial first-year investment with outstanding returns in years two, three and beyond.

Training

Never mowed a lawn or trimmed a hedge? No need to worry. The comprehensive training programme will ensure you deliver a quality job from day one of your business and put you a cut above the competition!

Support

Running your business can be lonely and challenging but with Clean Cut’s proven methodologies and the ability to draw on the experiences of others in the network you will never feel alone.

Marketing strategies

Any good business measures the effectiveness of its marketing and understands what works and what does not. Clean Cut’s unique lead generation planner enables you to draw on data to create a marketing plan which is based on actual results achieved in the past rather than relying on guesswork.

The planner tells you exactly what marketing methods to employ and also the results you should expect in terms of number of sales and sales value. This means you can grow your business faster and better than someone trying to start up alone.

Build a team

Want to own a business, not just do a job? Everything you need to know about employing and managing a team of gardeners has been created for you so finding and retaining the right staff is as simple as possible.

A business beyond you

You can create a business where you can draw an income without leaving the office. The unique management system means that if you wish you can build a business where you no longer have to work on the tools, enabling you to focus on increasing sales.

Open your business, it’s time to start work.
