Overview of the business
We are pleased to be able to offer for sale this profitable and highly successful GreenThumb franchise.
GreenThumb South Lincolnshire was established in 2008 and purchased in 2013 as a resale by the current owners. Since then, the customer base has grown by 120% to 1200+ satisfied customers and turnover has increased to over £145,000, with profitability growing year on year. The business consistently achieves above average performance against the GreenThumb measures and is in the top 10 for their independently run countrywide Customer Satisfaction monitor. The business offers a year-round income and work programme with no drop off over winter.
The franchise benefits from a healthy mix of both rural and urban customers centred around four market towns in South Lincolnshire and South East Nottinghamshire. There is a great opportunity for growth with a fantastic pool of potential new customers as the housing development in these towns has increased significantly in the last few years. This makes today’s density of households much larger than the original base of 45,000.
This super-efficient business is currently run from a home office with an additional satellite home office and lockup for storage. This arrangement can easily be adapted to suit a new owner’s business need.
GreenThumb franchisees across the country structure their businesses in a number of different ways according to their personal circumstances and aspirations. The current owners of GreenThumb South Lincolnshire have chosen to concentrate on business development and team leadership to deliver strong growth but there is opportunity to structure the business differently if required.
The new owner will be acquiring a profitable business with great potential to further increase market share and, in turn, raise the profits and their income from this business. So, if this is of interest to you, then please do apply for further information.
