About Daniel Moquet
Daniel Moquet is the hard landscaping specialist for homeowners. With over 250 franchisees and 2,000 employees in Europe, Daniel Moquet is the leader in the industry.
In 1977, Daniel Moquet created his first agency in France, with a second pilot branch launched in 2003. In 2009, the fiftieth franchise opened and a call centre was created. Today, the company has teamed its franchising expertise with MJT Landscapes Limited to broaden the reach of high-quality hard landscaping in the UK domestic market.
Daniel Moquet’s vision is to balance social, environmental and economic aspects to create sociable and practicable garden spaces that can be enjoyed year-round by clients.
How does the Daniel Moquet franchise model work?
Initially providing a broader range of landscaping services, Daniel Moquet noticed a market gap beginning to form in the early 1990s. He made the decision to concentrate his knowledge on developing creative solutions to enhance driveways, paths, and patios for residents rather than providing a variety of services like any other landscaping contractor would.
Daniel Moquet was able to produce ground-breaking, ecologically responsible goods to revolutionize hard landscaping surfacing by collaborating with top manufacturing firms in the sector.
By keeping the business family-orientated and focusing on customer satisfaction, the company has been able to differentiate itself from other landscapers as an experienced team who go above and beyond to make your project a success. It’s also provided the blueprint to turn Daniel Moquet into one of the biggest franchises, with multiple sites around the rest of Europe.
