Why Join Jim’s?

Jim’s is the number 1 brand in Australia for Lawn Mowing and Gardening.

How does that help me?

Each year in Sydney we pass on to our franchisees over 20,000 new customers who are looking for lawn or garden maintenance services on top of their existing clients.

The estimated value of these new services is over $20 million.

In addition to the 20,000 individual customers above, last year we had to say sorry to a further 11,000+ customers that our franchisees could not quote for because they were too busy.

The estimated value of this lost business is over $9 million.

How much to start?

This is a conversation that needs to be had with your local franchisor. Like everything, it varies based on the type of business you want to start:
  • Starting a Jim’s Mowing franchise without existing customers and growing your business from referral of customers from the Jim’s network. You can start with as little as $10k deposit, balance subject to finance.
  • Buying a business from an existing franchisee, the price is dependent on the turnover of the customers being purchased and if any equipment is included.
  • Starting a Jim’s Mowing franchise with a smaller group of customers and growing your business from referral of customers from the Jim’s network. The price is dependent on the turnover of the customers being purchased.

A list of the current sales is on our website.
