A recession resistant franchise – it does exist

Over the years, the economy has thrown some curve balls our way but through it all, Lawn Doctor has managed to come out ahead. Creating a business plan and products that make for a recession resistant franchise is no easy task. However, Lawn Doctor has never been afraid of a challenge and because of this, we worked to implement a recurring revenue strategy that has led to continued growth.

For those looking to leave the corporate world behind, this is great news! You can say goodbye to your cubicle and 9 to 5 hours without the added stress. At Lawn Doctor, we give our Strategic Partners the freedom to spend more time with their families and a solid business foundation to stand on. Here are three other things you can count on with a Lawn Doctor franchise:

  1. Proven track record

The Lawn Doctor story is a good one, and the numbers tell it best. Since the company was founded in 1967, we have expanded to over 500 franchise locations and 200 local experts spanning 40 states! The best part is that Lawn Doctor isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Since 2009, Strategic Partner revenue has grown every year.

Another impressive number to add to the mix is $598,806 – that’s the average revenue per year our Strategic Partners are earning. They do say history has a tendency to repeat itself. Well, we wouldn’t mind if we continued to grow at the same rate we have in the past. In fact, delivering the same notable statistics year after year is exactly what we plan to do.

  1. Supply and demand

You don’t need to be a genius in economics to understand the basics – and that’s the important stuff. From the very beginning, Lawn Doctor recognized the need for advanced technology and superior service in the lawn care industry. The demand was there, but the supply was not. According to FMC Turf Wire, nearly three-quarters of U.S. households utilize lawn care services. This is where Lawn Doctor comes in.

By focusing on high-demand, repeat services like lawn fertilization, weed control, mosquito and tick control, Lawn Doctor has established an invaluable recurring revenue model. By using the right products and doing the job right, one-time customer acquisitions consistently lead to repeat business. In fact, our Strategic Partners have been experiencing an 80 percent customer retention rate. Now that’s supply and demand – we supply the service and customers demand for us to keep coming back.

  1. Positive future forecasts

With the way things are going, it looks like the grass will continue to be greener for Lawn Doctor and our Strategic Partners. The do-it-yourself mindset is falling to the wayside and dual-income households are on the rise, so our services will continue to be something consumers want and need. We’ve found our niche in the lawn care industry and are constantly looking for ways to improve what we do and how we do it.

Becoming a part of the Lawn Doctor family is an opportunity to watch your own business grow from the ground up. The fact that Lawn Doctor is a recession resistant franchise is just one of many reasons to become a Strategic Partner.
