Despite the size of the industry, it was clear that the majority of homeowners were either being left disappointed by the final costs, timelines and quality of their renovations or felt too nervous to even begin a project! So, Traffic’s directors developed Refresh Renovations and Zones Landscaping - a franchised business that offers homeowners exceptional service, end-to-end project management and, essentially, an experience that allows them to achieve their ideas on-time and on-budget.
Zones started in 2015 and launched into the US market in 2018. We have worked with thousands of customers by transforming their outdoor area since we have started. Join us on our mission of delivering a better model, system and overall experience.
Induction is carried out at your closest Head Office or online. During this session, the franchisee will receive training on all aspects of the business, including; marketing (lead generation), management of leads through all process stages, business and financial management, planning and more! There is at least 24 hours of induction and ongoing training through your dedicated Franchise Business Manager and monthly global webinars.
Zones is primarily interested in working with business-driven individuals who are looking to leave the corporate world and establish their own scalable business. They are great communicators that pride themselves on providing an exceptional customer experience. Zones’ franchise owners come from a variety of career backgrounds, many of which have nothing to do with renovations or the outdoors. We can provide you with training in this area, provided you have a few key skills and aspirations: Strong leadership skills, business-minded, ability to make customers feel important and supported, motivation to build a multi-million dollar business, sales and marketing abilities, enthusiasm and positivity, an interest in outdoor living.
As a Zones franchise owner, your main responsibilities will initially include managing the business, providing your customers with a high level of customer service and communicating client needs through to your team of subcontractors. As your business becomes well-established, you’ll likely choose to bring on permanent staff members such as a project manager/contractor, administration staff and renovation consultants.
There are two main aspects to the franchisee's role in managing the business - driving new sales and managing your team who deliver the projects.
Given that this is an owner-operator role which requires strong relationship management skills, we are primarily looking for people coming from relationship-based roles, like sales people in career transition.
We have also found this to be an attractive concept for people in IT sales or real estate business.
