Our Recession-Resistant Landscaping Franchise

When You Partner with Lawn Doctor to Open Your Landscaping Franchise, You Join a Recession-Resistant Industry!

If you’re thinking of going into business for yourself and are wondering if a landscaping franchise might be a good choice, we’re here to tell you, it is! As one of the nation’s oldest and most respected landscape franchise brands, Lawn Doctor has helped thousands of franchisees over the course of our 50+ years in business start and grow their landscaping franchises. Our time-tested business model takes advantage of a recession-resistant industry in ways the competition can’t match, and our franchise partners enjoy not just the strength of our brand name, but our comprehensive training and support. Here, we’ll take a closer look at the landscaping industry and how Lawn Doctor franchisees make the most of it.

Three Ways to Grow

Right now, the landscape industry is a robust one. Statistics show that as of 2018, it had annual U.S. revenues of $93 billion, employed more than 1 million people, and represented 513,305 businesses. When you join this exciting industry through a Lawn Doctor landscaping franchise, you’ll have the chance to contribute to it in three ways:

  • As a Single-Territory Owner: This is a great place to start, and it’s where most of our franchisees do. Owning a single territory first is how many of our franchisees break into the industry and springboard into the next opportunity.
  • As a Multi-Territory Owner: This is a chance for franchisees of other systems to grow their footprint, or for single-owner Lawn Doctor franchisees to expand their reach, leveraging what they already know about our systems. They’ll further benefit from our efficient supply chain, leading products and services, and ongoing investment in technology.
  • As an Empire Builder: For those with big dreams, ambition and a willingness to put in the work, Empire Builders will find a great opportunity with us. Approximately 10% of Lawn Doctor franchisees fall into this group, and many started out as single-territory owners who grew over time.

Multiple Revenue Streams

One of the ways that a Lawn Doctor landscaping franchise remains recession-proof is by offering a comprehensive suite of services that represent multiple and recurring revenue streams. Our franchisees service both residential and commercial properties and enjoy an average profit margin of 84%, through a variety of services that include:

  • Lawn Care: keeping turf looking great and weed-, disease-, and pest-free
  • Tree and Shrub Care: encouraging healthy growth and helping to protect and treat for disease and pests
  • Mosquito Control: offering property owners the chance to reclaim their yards
  • Lawn and Perimeter Pest Control: helping clients keep their homes and other structures pest-free
  • Power Seeding: combining new seed with a lawn’s soil for the best possible results
  • Core Aeration: aerating lawns with the most effective and long-lasting method available

A Highly-Respected Brand Offering

Ours is a terrific opportunity to become part of the landscaping industry, one that has ranked 40 years running on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list. With over 600 locations across the country, more and more property owners every day are learning the value of a Lawn Doctor in their community. Are you ready to be there for yours?
