1851 Franchise: Lawn Doctor Franchisee Richard Benbow Highlights a Day in the Life of Lawn Doctor’s Richard Benbow

When it comes to his lawn service franchise, connection and personal interaction are two of the most important goals that franchisee Richard Benbow aims to achieve every day that he goes into the office of his Lawn Doctor business in Southern Wake County, North Carolina. His hard work and dedication are highlighted in a recent article that looks at a day in the life of a Lawn Doctor award winner, and shares some of the reasons why Lawn Doctor has continued to attract community-minded franchise partners like Richard.

“Since I started like most as a single-employee business, many of our customers know me by name,” said Richard. “I’m local, I live in the community and I serve on a number of community committees and boards. I try to personally field any issues and concerns. I tell customers that if something happens, I’m the neck to choke.”

Like many Lawn Doctor franchisees before him, Richard built his business from the ground up, despite no technical experience, having come from a background in education and sales. He benefited greatly from our pre-opening training and ongoing support, so much so that he was recently awarded our “Best of the Best” award at a recent Lawn Doctor annual conference.

“It was truly an honor,” Richard recounts. “There are so many outstanding franchise owners that do a great job every year that I was, and still am, in a state of awe.”

Richard, and all our other franchisees, have enjoyed the advantages of our time-tested business model and our years of expertise and experience, helping to take a lot of the guesswork out of running their franchises, and positioning them for continued growth.

“I’m always trying to continue to learn and ask questions to mold my business into the best it can be,” he said.
