Ed’s Garden Maintenance signs five new franchisees to South England territories
New recruits bring gardening chain’s franchise network to 30
Domestic gardening chain Ed’s Garden Maintenance has announced the addition of five new franchisees to its UK-wide network, bringing its total number of franchisees to 30.
The latest gardeners to join the chain will be based in five territories; Tonbridge Wells, Bournemouth, Leighton Buzzard, St Ives, and New Malden.
Founded in 2003 but launched as a franchise business in 2007, Ed’s Garden Maintenance alleges to be the largest domestic garden maintenance franchise in the UK, offering a range of services such as lawn mowing, hedge cutting, pressure washing, turfing, and garden clearance.
The chain says its success is due to the “responsive service of its franchise operators” with a purported 35% of its franchisees making in excess of £30,000 profit.
The gardening brand has franchise opportunities available for an estimated £10,995 investment plus vehicle and equipment.
Ed’s Garden Maintenance founder, Edward Mauleverer, discussed its growth to date: “We have worked hard to put the right infrastructure in place.
“Recruiting the first 10 [franchisees] was difficult; the next milestone was going from 20 to 30 operators as we transitioned to become a medium-sized business. Our next goal is to reach 100 operators and to become the garden maintenance company of choice in the UK.
“The key to steady growth has been to listen, we constantly benchmark our operators’ satisfaction. We have demonstrated that our model is sound and it works, and that by becoming an Ed franchisee you will make more money than as an independent.”
