Lawn Care Franchise Cost

Choosing to pursue business ownership through franchising is a smoother and more straightforward process than starting a business from scratch, but it’s still a big decision with lots of important factors to consider. One of the most crucial by far is whether or not you’re making a smart investment. Joshua Tree Experts’ place in the essential tree care market and commitment to franchisee success make us a wise fit for your financial goals.

Let’s Look at the Numbers

To start, here are some of the most important parts of our lawn care franchise cost. The following figures are for single territory agreements; multiunit territory agreements will be slightly different. Consult Item 7 of our franchise disclosure document (FDD) for more details.

Type of Expenditure Amount When Due
Initial Franchise Fee $49,500 At Franchise Agreement signing
Tools and Job Materials $15,000 - $25,000 As incurred
Vehicles and Machinery $324,000 - $382,000 As incurred
Three Months Additional Funds (labor, suppliers, landlord, utilities) $28,334 - $58,090 As incurred
Estimated Initial Investment $460,669 - $597,460  


We’re proud to offer qualified veterans a 10% discount off of the initial franchise fee. It’s our way of showing our appreciation for your service.

Additional Fees

As you begin to plan for our lawn care franchise cost, it’s a good idea to account for regular expenditures beyond the initial investment. Over the course of your time with Joshua Tree Experts, you’ll be responsible for a variety of weekly, monthly, and annual fees. Your weekly royalty fee can be as high as 6% of gross sales and as low as 3.5%, and will depend on the size of your territory. You will also be responsible for a 1-2% brand development fund fee, monthly payments into our marketing fund and advertising cooperatives, monthly technology fees, and more. Additional information is available under Item 6 of our FDD.

Multiple Revenue Streams

Our revenue streams, the Joshua Tree Three, help you on your way to building a thriving business. Joshua Tree Experts franchise owners earn revenue through tree care services, lawn care services, and pest control services. Because lawn care and pest control needs reoccur, many of our franchisees find that these are recurring sources of revenue. In fact, up to 60% of our annual revenue comes from recurring services.

Understanding Your Investment

We’re committed to making sure that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision about your franchise opportunity with Joshua Tree Experts. As part of the franchise process, you’ll receive a copy of our FDD, which includes vital information about our business model and place in the market. Please be sure to review it carefully. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have.
