Jim's Fencing is part of the Jim's Group, which is the largest franchise by way of numbers in Australia and New Zealand with more than 4,400 franchise owners. Jim’s Fencing has over 150 franchise owners and still over 60% of our leads go unserviced due to us not having enough franchisees to take up the demand. We will fully train anyone who is willing to work hard and help us keep up with the high demand for fencing work. Jim is highly passionate about Jim’s Fencing and believes we could have more than 500 franchisees and still not be able to keep up with demand.
Jim Penman started a part-time gardening business while earning his PhD in history at Latrobe University. He launched a full-time mowing business in 1982 with a $24 investment.
He originally aimed only at taking on subcontractors, but his business grew, and he gradually began to specialise in the building up and selling of lawn mowing rounds. By 1989 he franchised his business, and since then Jim's Mowing has become the largest franchise chain in Australian and the largest and best-known lawn mowing business in the world.
"The key to success in franchising is an overriding concern for the welfare of franchisees, and constant improvement in customer service."
He is still actively involved in the running of the business, is directly accessible to all his franchisees and to any client with a serious complaint.
