As a fragmented industry with approximately 20,000 different fence companies nationwide, no fencing company has evolved into a national brand. For this very reason, Lea Bailes, the CEO of Guier Fence, saw a wide-open landscape for producing the best practices, time-tested professionalism, high quality products and superior customer services never provided before, from a brand. His vision, backed by 30-years of time-tested systems and data, is a franchise system that has unlimited national growth potential and the chance to help local lawn and landscape companies with additional revenue opportunities.
“We can help independent lawn and landscape business owners connect into a national franchise which has many benefits including instant brand recognition and buying power,” said Bailes. “In our model, we can even offer the small business owner a profitable exit strategy, a very attractive incentive to those owners today who eventually wish to make their business sellable, and something that they may not have available to them currently.”
Guier Fence provides existing lawn and landscape business owners a great opportunity to ‘bolt-on’ a complimentary business model with a low start-up cost and a highly profitable business model for entrepreneurs. With the national buying power that comes from joining a franchised system to the assistance in launching your business, Guier Fence equips new franchisees with the tools to operate the business smoothly. Another advantage for future Guier Fence franchise owners is the brand reputation that comes from joining a franchised system. The company provides guidance and resources that allow the business owner the opportunity to build strong local ties.
“We’re looking for lawn and landscape contractors to become Guier Fence franchisees and provide them with a bolt on business opportunity to compliment their already existing business and help them be even more profitable,” Bailes said.
