There are a number of advantages to being involved in the Jim’s Mowing System. Being number one gives Jim's Mowing Franchisees a huge advantage when it comes to work. As a group at most times of the year we have more work than they can handle, in fact, around 30,000 jobs go unserviced each year.
Jim's Mowing is a lifestyle business. Be your own boss, working your own hours, and with the opportunity to build without limit. And yet with the backup and security of an established, proven system. A name you can trust since 1989.
And Jim's, for all its size, is still a personal business. Jim's Group is owned 100% by Jim, who works daily in the business. Every Franchisee is given his personal Email and contact number and invited to call him any time. Every year, hundreds do.
At Jim’s Mowing We Work for You! We treat customers like royalty, as Franchisees you are our customers and get the very best help and support.
There are great benefits to being part of Jim’s Mowing: Strong Name; good reputation; proven system; ongoing support; training; options to grow; great network for help and much more.
It is well known that most business fail in their first year, especially in the service industry. By contrast, 88% of our Franchisees are still in business at the end of their first year, with most of the rest selling for a good price. And many of those who leave do so for family or personal reasons, rather than poor income. One reason is that we are, on the whole, very good at finding work. In fact, during 2009 our Mowing Division knocked back 17,770 leads because all local operators were flat out. Many Franchisees start with an established round, and those who do not get a Work Availability Guarantee which pays up to $1500 per week for doing free promotional work. Unlike most such guarantees, this one does not cut out after a set period. In practice, most Franchisees never claim since work is plentiful from the beginning.
At Jim’s we put Franchisees first, and this is more than a slogan. Franchisees are entitled to regular meetings, fast response to their calls, and regular pro-active calls to provide coaching and advice. We poll Franchisees each year to check that proper service is being provided, and Franchisees with problems are invited to go direct to our founder, Jim Penman. He regularly gives out his personal phone numbers and Email address, and typically speaks to several Franchisees a week. Jim’s is the only Franchise system in the world that allows Franchisees to change to another Franchisor or even vote them out, if not happy with the service they receive.
Support also comes from fellow Franchisees, who are normally generous with help and advice. Our people are also encouraged to attend meetings and network with Franchisees of other Divisions. Some Franchisees gain more than half of their work in this way.
This is a "Turn Key" package that includes training, equipment, uniform, stationary, insurance and fee's.
"Try before you Buy" - after our initial meeting we can organise a 1-2 day trial so that you can see what a day in the life of a Jim is all about and make sure it's for you!
From there, if we think Jim's is the right fit, there is a 6 day training session in Melbourne where you will get to meet Jim himself and learn about the business and systems that we offer.
Once this training is complete you will be able to sign your Franchise Agreement and start your Jim's journey.
Training doesn't end here - there is further on road training for 1-2 weeks and ongoing support as much as needed.
