Business Description

Looking for an excellent & profitable, outdoors-based business with a 27-year successful track record? This Premier Lawn Care business is based in the beautiful rolling hills of Central Virginia area on the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, close to the NC state line: A full-service lawn maintenance / landscaping company with a sterling reputation built on honesty, integrity and attention to detail, is now available due to Seller's desire to retire to pursue other dreams and goals in life.

You will start with a large fleet of vehicles, equipment, and 4.7 acres/ property valued at approximately $350K. Trucks, enclosed trailers, stand-up mowers, and everything else needed to service the long-term regular account base is included in the price. (Full Equipment List Is Available) As a Buyer and Owner-Operator you can expect to personally clear about .30 cents on every $1 dollar billed. And most all accounts, which include residential, commercial and institutional clients, are billed monthly. Seller has reduced the money he pays himself over the last couple of years to buy more equipment and beef up the very healthy balance sheet.

Billed labor charges range from $25-$50 per man-hour in this field, while employees average about $10/hr. Overall sales continue to slowly rise over the years with the strong, loyal and growing customer mix of accounts. Owner has reached a comfortable level between income, staffing, work load and overall life; but other goals to accomplish in life have induced him to sell. Business could be grown much more with an ambitious new Owner-Operator and marketing plan.

Your main role is overall management and "surprise" inspections of work to ensure high standards are met; and maintaining good relations with customers, mostly over the phone. Little-to-no hands-on work need be done by Buyer with 15-year seasoned veterans, along with experienced others on staff. But you can always join-in and get your hands dirty, break a sweat and breathe the sweet fresh air while enjoying the wonderful mountain foothills environment where this business is located within an hour's drive to Roanoke, VA or Greensboro, NC.

Seller has generously offered to provide up to 6 months of training and transitioning for Buyer at no extra charge, to ensure that Buyer is completely set-up to succeed and prosper.

Perfect records, P&L's, tax returns and everything simply kept on QuickBooks: Nothing hidden or not reported. Everything is above board as befits the character and reputation of Seller, whose great name is the foundation for continued success.

*** Customer will consider selling customer base/list separately for $175K.
