Despite the recent lockdowns that have impacted so many people, their livelihoods and businesses across Victoria, Coochie HydroGreen continues to thrive. We have grown our client base and service more Lawn Care Program customers across the state than ever before. Over the last 6 months 3 new franchisees have began operating in Victoria and along with their Coochie counterparts are servicing clients in Melbourne, Geelong, Mornington Peninsula, Bendigo and Wodonga.
We are happy to announce the rare opportunity to purchase a turn key business in the Melbourne metro area. This business comes with over $58,000 of existing work in the primary service area, with plenty of room to grow over the coming years.
We have recently entered the Melbourne market and are seeing fantastic results from the operators servicing the region. Coochie HydroGreen Berwick commenced service in the City of Casey servicing Narre Warren, Harkaway and Berwick in June of 2021 and in the seven months of operation has received over 320leads through national and local marketing campaigns and converted over half of these to regular Lawn Care Program customers.
Coochie HydroGreen Berwick surpassed annual targets within its first 3 months of operation and has broken all records set by past Greenfield franchisees. He has well and truly exceeded the average number of clients, annual value, average LCP value and sales seen by our Greenfield regions in quarter one. This highly successful region has become available due to the owners having to move interstate, noting that they have loved the results so far of owning their own Coochie HydroGreen Lawn Services business that they are opening a new location in their new home in North Queensland.
Our year-round scheduled servicing not only allows our clients to have the best lawn possible, but it means our franchisees have stable income, predictable expenses and are able to manage their cashflow from the first steps of their business right up to retirement or expansion. That means the business can grow with you, whether you start out as a Greenfield with nil customers or purchase an existing franchise resale.
