New franchise off to successful start

Ground maintence franchise Envirocare is set to have three franchise owners operating within seven months of launching its franchise concept. Last February Envirocare launched its franchise and already has one franchise owner operating and is set to have a further two live by the middle of September.

Envirocare Managing Director David Yates said: "We are now consistently receiving interest in our franchise offering from many excellent potential franchise owners and anticipate appointing our first 10 franchise owners before the end of 2010."

Steven Vivers, Envirocare's Carlisle franchise owner, said: "I chose Envirocare as I wanted to develop my business - I recognised that by becoming an Envirocare franchise owner I would achieve this more easily than by myself. The support and training has been excellent and I've already made considerable progress in developing my business and increasing sales."

Envirocare offers its clients across the UK a range of flexible maintenance programmes that include grass cutting, edging and strimming; hedge cutting and pruning; weed control and maintaining flower and shrub beds, paths and hard standings.
