Set your own Prices!

At Jim’s Mowing we believe in fair pricing for outstanding work and great service. Our Franchisees are always expected to price fairly, but because of our quality and service, ongoing training, insurance and WCB costs, and because we always pay our employees fair living wages, we are not usually the lowest-cost provider. Our goal is to always provide the best value to our customers, not the lowest prices. Our customers know they are getting the best value for their money, and that’s why we have serviced over 50,000 customers in the past 22 years in BC alone.

The Demographics for our services are very powerful

Every year more and more homeowners are willing to pay for professional lawn care, especially our two core demographics: aging Baby Boomers who wish to stay in their homes into old age, and double income families with children who don’t have the will or time for household chores. As a Jim’s Mowing Franchisee, you’ll get the brand recognition, systems and support you’ll need to take advantage of these very lucrative demographic segments.

Maintenance means Recurring Revenue by Definition

Lawns, trees and shrubs never stop growing, and leaves never stop falling. With a maintenance-based business you’ll have the absolute peace of mind knowing that you can count on the vast majority of your customers coming back year after year. Repeat customers bring in recurring revenue which allows you to focus on growth rather than repeat sales. With Jim’s Mowing, you’ll always be building on a growing base of repeat customers, creating equity and expanding your business.

2. Lifestyle

Jim’s Mowing Franchisees in Canada earn between $150,000 and $500,000 per year in gross revenue. We have more than enough business for double the Franchisees we have now:  in 2018 we turned away almost half of our customers (over 1,400 customers) because we didn’t have enough Franchisees. New Franchisees can take as much work as they want, wherever they want, whenever they want. As long as our customers are well serviced, you can build the business of your dreams.

Stay Fit

Jim’s Mowing Franchisees are healthy and fit. Our new Franchisees usually need two sets of uniforms, one set when they start, and one set a few months later. We like to call this the “Jim’s Diet”, even though there’s no diet.

More time with family. More time for vacations. Just more time.

What’s the old saying? Those with time don’t have money, and those with money don’t have time. Well, with a Jim’s Mowing Franchise that’s a thing of the past. All our Franchisees make over 6-figure incomes in 10 months of the year. Plenty of time for family, even if it’s month-long family vacations with the whole brood.

Choose your own Jobs

Hate going up ladders? Don’t. Love planting flowers and tending garden beds? Do more of that. Like building fences and decks, hardscaping, excavating? You get the idea…do more of what you love, none of what you don’t. Jim’s Mowing Franchisees have full autonomy to do only the jobs they enjoy. You’re the boss, so you might as well do what you enjoy.

What about the weather?

We work our schedules around the weather, and we almost never work in the heavy rain because it slows us down too much and that affects profitability. What about the winter? The 2 worse months of the year, January and February, we’re off, and we love it!  Why? because we made way more than enough money to support our winter months off. Don’t like sitting around or the winter heat in Mexico? (are you kidding!?) Well, ok then, take on ice and snow contracts and supplement your income even more.

3. Investment

The initial franchise cost is $25,000. Training is included, but you will need to budget approximately $3,500 for travel expenses for flights, meals and accommodation at our 25-acre training campus complete with hotel and conference centre in Australia. Our base model aluminum Jim’s Mowing trailer is $9,895 and our base equipment package is $5,800.00. Both the trailer and equipment can be leased from our leasing partners.

What you need to Start

> The initial franchise cost of $25,000
> Budget $3,500 for flights, meals and accommodation for training in Australia
> Base model aluminum Jim’s Mowing trailer is $9,895
> Base equipment package is $5,800

It would be safe to budget between $40,000 and $50,000 to start. You will also need a recent model pickup truck (no damage or rust).

Fixed Franchise Fees

One of the greatest advantages of a Jim’s Mowing Franchise is the fixed franchise fee. We never charge a percentage of revenue. Not only does this mean you get to keep more of the money you earn, but it also delivers the greatest benefits of the Jim’s Mowing Franchise System: The relationship between Franchisee and Franchisor. Because we don’t charge a percentage of revenue, we never push you to work any more than you want to. Looking to build a small business to help cover your retirement income? We’ll help you do that. Looking to build a multi-unit million-dollar business? We can help you do that too!

Ongoing Fees

> $675 a month franchise fee (Fixed – Not a percentage of revenue) – Net of $90 compliance discount.
> $150 advertising fund. All the Franchisees pay into this fund every month so we can advertise the brand collectively and bring in new business. In 2018 we brought in over 3,000 new customers in BC (and we had to turn away over 1,400 of them because we didn’t have enough Franchisees to service them).
> $14.00 per lead. When you need new customers, we will send you new leads for $14.00 each. The first 50 leads for all new Franchisees are free.
