Wonderlawn has been professionally installing artificial grass for nearly 15 years.
This market sector has grown year on year, with the most growth over the last five years. Wonderlawn sits at the premium end of the market and has unique products, installation methods and guarantees.
This is a great industry to be involved in, with franchisees easily profitable in year one. Despite the difficult circumstances during the previous 12 months, Wonderlawn has grown by over 200 per cent and is seeing a consistent rise in enquiries across the UK.
How does the franchise model work?
Wonderlawn is unique in the way it operates in this market.
The franchisee sells and installs lawns and Wonderlawn manages everything else, including stock ordering, delivery and things like PPC marketing. This leaves you free to do the things that make you money.
You’re only invoiced once you have been paid by your customer, which is great for cash flow. All new franchisees are trained on live installations that Wonderlawn organises in the area purchased.
What type of franchisee is Wonderlawn looking to recruit?
Wonderlawn’s current franchisees include warehouse managers, recruitment consultants, labourers and sales executives.
In the main, the company is looking for motivated, energetic and driven individuals who are looking to grow a business rather than just survive in one. Some kind of sales background is helpful, as most business is done directly with the public, but in any event, comprehensive installation and sales training are provided from day one.
What training and support is provided?
Training and ongoing support in this industry is crucial. Imagine being trained on a factory floor and then being confronted by a 250m² school play area?
All Wonderlawn franchisees are trained on ‘actual’ installations until they and the company feel they’re ready to go it alone. Even then, Wonderlawn continues to provide hands-on support. Even after five years, some of Wonderlawn’s franchisees have asked for support on larger or more complicated installations.
All franchisees have remained with Wonderlawn from the outset, which the company feels is a great recommendation.
How much does it cost to become a franchisee?
A typical franchise fee would be £20,000 (plus VAT) and the area would contain between 350,000 to 450,000 homes. You would also need some initial working capital of around £5,000.
Wonderlawn says its franchisees hit the ground running. The company markets in your chosen area on your behalf. It sells in jobs and then installs them with you (or your installer) and you get paid as normal at the end of the installation. As a result, franchisees make money from week one.
Wonderlawn’s newest franchisee in North Birmingham joined the company in September 2020 and turned over more than £100,000 between then and December. He continues to grow and has his eye on a second team already in order to satisfy demand. His aim for 2021 is a turnover of over £350,000.
What are the terms of the franchise agreement?
Wonderlawn franchises are based on a five-year initial term, with the right to renew for two following terms.
A Wonderlawn franchise operates in a feel-good, thriving market that creates an income from day one with a minimal investment.
How in demand are the services and products Wonderlawn provides?
This industry has grown into a £300 million market over the last 10 years.
Wonderlawn’s position in the market has consolidated over the years and enquiries are at an all-time high. The company deals with premium end products and, as a result, margins are protected.
