1) Foundations and Support
At Jim’s Mowing Auckland, we put Franchisees first. We believe the relationship between the franchisee and franchisor is a partnership. The Regional Franchisor provides you with support through regular contact and advice on how to effectively manage your business. This will be done through regular phone calls, fast responses to your calls, regular meetings and business reviews.
Jim’s National poll Franchisees each year to check that proper services are 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.
2) Future Building and Motivation
One unique feature of Jim’s is that a Franchise can grow to any size. There are no restrictions on the number of workers to be employed or vehicles on the road, and Mowing Franchisees have turned over up to a million dollars a year. Nor does this mean any increase in fees, apart from a small charge (around $7) for every lead provided. With Jim’s Mowing Auckland, we encourage future building, especially in the economic time where quality and service is paramount importance.
At Jim’s we pride ourselves on selecting the very best candidates for a franchise business – a comfortable fit for those who set high standards for themselves and others.The Jim’s Mowing system asks a commitment to quality and reliability from our franchisees to ensure the highest quality of service to our clients. Anyone who fails in this will not be accepted as a Franchise Owner, and any Franchise Owner who falls below our standards will be invited to sell their Franchise. We are looking for highly motivated people.
Franchises are granted following an assessment of the applicant and those that are assessed as capable of running a Jim’s Mowing franchise business will be invited. A Regional Franchise Owner will make this assessment and they have a strong interest in maintaining the quality of the service and thus the value of the business name.
