Record-breaking first year for Kingsclere lawn care business

A Kingsclere businessman has broken records in the franchise network he operates in after acquiring over 100 customers in his first year of operation.

Mike LethbridgeMike Lethbridge, the owner of TruGreen Professional LawnCare Newbury and Basingstoke, has taken his business from a standing start in 2015 to employing two technicians, adding another vehicle to service new and existing customers, purchasing another territory and finishing within the top third of the best performing TruGreen franchisees.

Mike launched his TruGreen business after finishing an extensive career in IT and financial services. After the rapid growth of his business in year one, he decided to expand his operation into Winchester and Salisbury and take on two new members of staff, Chris Jolley and James Brown, both of Kingsclere.

Mike said: “I’ve achieved far more than I expected in my first year with TruGreen and I’ve been delighted with how quickly the businesses reputation has grown throughout Newbury and Basingstoke. One of my goals was to invest in young, local people and I’ve been able to do that by bringing on and training two new members of staff, who are both as enthusiastic about lawn care as I am. As a business, we’re really excited to be expanding in Winchester and Salisbury also and look forward to the challenges ahead.”

TruGreen brand operations manager, and former FA Groundsman of the Year, Steve Welch commented: “TruGreen has never seen a new business owner acquire over 100 customers as quickly as Mike has and we congratulate him on a fantastic first year. He is a credit to the TruGreen network and his determination to bring on new staff, expand his territory and continue to offer a fantastic service is second to none.”

Mike added: “With spring around the corner, now is the time to be looking at the condition of your lawn and taking the necessary steps to combat moss and weeds that have built up over the mild winter period we’ve experienced. Simple steps can help homeowners achieve a beautiful lawn for the summer. ”

TruGreen is a franchise of Leicestershire-based, ServiceMaster Limited, which has been established in the UK since 1959.
