About Clean Cut
The system is the brainchild of Clean Cut founder Simon Studd, who built up his successful garden business in Sussex from the humble beginnings of a lawn mower in the back of his Ford Escort car to a business which runs without him everhaving to leave the office.
With proven methodologies in all aspects of a garden maintenance business – marketing, sales, operations, human resources, finance and extensive training – Simon has devised a system based on the support he felt he needed but lacked when he started his business.
The major concern of any new business venture is will it work? With Clean Cut’s proven marketing and delivery methods you can start with absolute confidence of success.
Our franchisees have the ability to make a significant return on their investment and should recoup their initial first-year investment with outstanding returns in years two, three and beyond.
Training & Support
Never mowed a lawn or trimmed a hedge? No need to worry. The comprehensive training programme will ensure you deliver a quality job from day one of your business and put you a cut above the competition!
Running your business can be lonely and challenging but with Clean Cut’s proven methodologies and the ability to draw on the experiences of others in the network you will never feel alone.
Any good business measures the effectiveness of its marketing and understands what works and what does not. Clean Cut’s unique lead generation planner enables you to draw on data to create a marketing plan which is based on actual results achieved in the past rather than relying on guesswork.
The planner tells you exactly what marketing methods to employ and also the results you should expect in terms of number of sales and sales value. This means you can grow your business faster and better than someone trying to start up alone.
Build a Team
Want to own a business, not just do a job? Everything you need to know about employing and managing a team of gardeners has been created for you so finding and retaining the right staff is as simple as possible.
You can create a business where you can draw an income without leaving the office. The unique management system means that if you wish you can build a business where you no longer have to work on the tools, enabling you to focus on increasing sales.
Open your business, it’s time to start work!
Growing up on a large farm in New Zealand gave me a love for the outdoors, however somehow I managed to end up working in Hospitality.
After spending 20 years working in Hotels working long unpredictable hours making the company lots of money I decided that it’s time to do what is best for me and my family both financially and for a better work life balance.
I stumbled across Clean Cut Franchise by mistake and after some web stalking decided to make the call and after speaking to Simon for 10 mins I was hooked, since then the support, guidance and training matches some of the multinational companies I have worked for yet with the personal approach makes it even better. It is a big step joining a franchise and I was nervous! But I was guided and coached all the way, and now I’m living the dream earning more money working less hours and seeing my family more than I ever could have previously dreamed of. I am looking forward to the next 12 months as they are sure to be even better.
I Joined Clean Cut Gardening in March 2013. Coming from a policing background and never having run a business I decided to buy the Worthing Franchise as Clean Cut offered support, guidance and a business model which eclipsed other opportunities I had a reasonably good understanding of how to run a business, but each business has its own best practices and I needed guidance in that regard.
The main reason for choosing Clean Cut was that I needed to know that I wouldn’t make any mistakes from the offset. I was coming from a reasonably well paid job in the police, and couldn’t afford to spend money in the wrong places, and not to earn the money to keep me going. Clean Cut offered what I like to call ‘a business in a box’. The consistency of the branding, the tried, tested and measured processes, the ongoing business management support and the attention to detail throughout the process was reassuring, and I knew I was going to be helped to make my business a roaring success – which it has been. In my first year I have surpassed the targets I set for myself, the business has ranked highly in local business awards and Clean Cut Worthing is fast becoming something of a local and national success story, with my implementation of Clean Cut’s methods being featured in a Guardian newspaper business article.
Throughout my first year I have had an abundance of questions for the Clean Cut team, all of which I would have struggled to have answered if I had gone it alone. Some questions related to doing the work itself, but the majority related to the running of the business. I’ve got the flexibility of being my own boss, but with the security and knowledge that I have support from people who have been there, done that and got the T-Shirt. It’s the perfect synergy of using your own determination and drive, with the guidance of people with the knowledge to help you succeed and build a business which supports your own lifestyle and generates a fantastic income for a franchisee.
