In the many decades that Clintar has been in business, we've welcomed franchisees from all walks of life — some of them white-collar executives who were ready to make a career change, others who were in our industry as independent owners and converted their businesses to Clintar outdoor franchises. Still others began as part of the Clintar brand in our corporate office, working with franchisees on a daily basis to help them grow their businesses. It allowed them a unique perspective, one that reiterated just what an exceptional value a Clintar investment is. From there, it made sense for many of them to become Clintar franchise owners themselves.
One such person is Brent Giles. Keep reading to find out more about how he went from a Clintar corporate team member to a Clintar commercial landscaping franchise owner.
The Path to Clintar Ownership
Brent began his journey as part of the landscape and turfgrass industry, independently owning a residential landscape and snow removal company. After he sold it, he joined Clintar at the corporate head office, helping our franchise owners establish and grow their own businesses. Brent then left Clintar to pursue a number of other industry startups but came back to our brand as a franchisee, ready to be a business owner in the industry again, but this time with a lot more help and brand power behind him!
A Network of Franchise Owners
As part of our corporate office, Brent already had a very good idea about all the benefits of franchise ownership with Clintar. But those benefits got much clearer once he became an owner himself. He quickly understood the value of our regular marketing efforts on his behalf, our continued research and development that keeps him ahead of the competition, and our important networking opportunities.
But perhaps more than anything, Brent appreciates the opportunity to collaborate with his fellow outdoor franchise owners.
“We’re only as good as the people around us,” says Brent. He has the chance to reach out to other franchise owners to pick their brains a little about pricing and clients and how they're managing the day-to-day operations of their franchises. “We definitely lean on each other,” he says. “We have the opportunity to utilize the network of the franchise system for the better of all of us.”
An Eye Toward the Future
Brent and his team have expanded dramatically and have seen meaningful growth over the last few years. Their team is committed to providing commercial property owners with the very best in landscaping and snow removal services and appreciate the opportunity to be of service in their community and to make properties safer and more attractive.
“We’re able to attract all sorts of demographics in our business,” says Brent. “We’ve got a nice, well-rounded team.”
Brent is excited by what the future holds for his Clintar commercial landscaping franchise and knows he can count on the corporate team he was once part of to help him achieve his growth goals. In fact, he is so confident of his industry and brand partnership with us that he has purchased rights to other territories to grow and expand his reach.
“We’ve already seen a huge influx in sales and over the next two years will look to grow that (new) market substantially,” says Brent.
Enjoy Important Perks
Becoming part of the Clintar franchise brand family to open your commercial landscaping business will get you important perks you simply won't be able to find with another brand partnership. These include larger protected territories for quicker growth, multiple revenue streams for dependable income, a time-tested business model to take the guesswork out of things, and much, much more. Best of all, our ongoing corporate support means you’ll always have the tools, knowledge, and training you need to not only establish your new business but grow it in ways that, as Brent Giles and many other Clintar franchise owners know, are truly gratifying.
