Company Overview

Countrywide Grounds Maintenance provides an extensive range of all-year-round grounds maintenance services to the commercial marketplace. Countrywide’s range of services include, grass cutting, pruning, hedge cutting, road sweeping, litter & leaf clearance, hard & soft landscaping, fencing, turfing, gritting, snow clearance and tree surgery.

Franchise Overview

Countrywide Grounds Maintenance was established in 1984, is growing steadily year on year and now has a £22 million group turnover, maintaining over 12,000 sites nationally. With large exclusive territories, an impressive blue-chip customer base, extensive national accounts and very low market penetration, each Countrywide Grounds Maintenance franchisee has great growth potential within their own territory. Accordingly, our franchisees are building high-revenue businesses with strong profit margins and ensuring strong financial security for their future.

Training

Countrywide provides excellent initial and ongoing support and training. New franchisees benefit from 3 weeks initial training at head office to cover all aspects of starting and successfully running their own business. This includes accounts, pricing, H&S and business development.  They also spend time shadowing existing franchisees to fully understand the business, and benefit from an initial head office marketing launch and ongoing support in any area needed. 

Daily Life of a Franchisee

This is predominantly a management franchise and franchisees will be involved in all aspects of the day-to-day running of their business; this includes employment and management of staff, visiting customers, and liaising with head office. 90% of sales leads come from head office so franchisees do very little selling, only having to visit and price the sites, and send out local quotations. The paperwork for national tenders is done by head office.
