Why You May Want to Start a Clean Air Lawn Care Franchise

To open a Clean Air Lawn Care franchise, a potential franchisee must be trustworthy and care about the environment and sustainability issues. Previous experience in the field is not necessary to own a Clean Air Lawn Care franchise.

If awarded a Clean Air Lawn Care franchise, franchisees may receive a great deal of support from the Clean Air Lawn Care brand throughout the franchising process. In addition to pre-opening training, franchisees receive support through brand awareness, marketing, research, and construction. They also receive hands-on training and continued support after their franchise location has opened.

What Might Make a Clean Air Lawn Care Franchise a Good Choice?

Clean Air Lawn Care provides new franchisees with several hours of on-the-job training, a few dozen hours of classroom training, ongoing additional training, extended ongoing support, and vast marketing support. 

Clean Air Lawn Care has partnered with third-party financial lenders that may help cover the costs of the franchise fee, startup, equipment, inventory, accounts receivable, and payroll if you meet their qualifications. They also may offer in-house financial help covering the cost of the franchise fee.

Opening a Clean Air Lawn Care franchise could offer a more predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that may struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive industry.

To be part of the Clean Air Lawn Care team, you should make sure you’re financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company’s set net worth and liquid capital requirements.
