Your questions

The start-up costs for a Green Acres franchise is from $36,000 depending on the level of income you would like and the type of franchise you want buy into.
Included in this cost is a fully comprehensive equipment pack, as well as three weeks of professional training which allows you to start your franchise from day one.
In addition to the above start-up cost, you will need to buy a suitable vehicle for your franchise.

To get you fully up and running, you'll be provided with an equipment package which we have compiled based on over 20 years of experience and success in the industry.
The package will provide you with all the tools of the trade – from uniforms, vehicle signage, safety equipment and marketing collateral through to accounting and client management software. In short, everything you need to start your franchise from day one!

Our Alliance Partners ANZ Bank can help!
You can apply for a business loan at your own bank where they may be able to lend up to 50% of the purchase price, or further lending if you have equity in your home. We also work closely with Alliance Partners ANZ Bank and Heartland Bank.

Green Acres is the most recognised Home and Commercial Services brand in New Zealand. Here are four key reasons why the Green Acres franchise system has grown to be so successful:

1. Fixed fees
The weekly royalty and brand levy fees paid weekly by our franchisees are fixed. There's no uncertainty over outgoing payments and no penalties for earning more money in a given week.

2. We give you the power to be your own boss and truly run your own business
With our comprehensive training and ongoing support, our franchisees:

Quote jobs for clients and deal directly with them.
Invoice jobs personally and receive payment straight into their own bank accounts (not ours).
Take care of their own tax returns and GST payments.

3. 21st century technology
Our award-winning franchise system is managed electronically, eliminating paper trails and saving our franchisees hundreds of dollars each year. Jobs are received, quoted and invoiced electronically, meaning no unnecessary trips to the post office and no long hours filling out paperwork.

4. Big brand Alliance Partners
We've aligned ourselves with some of the most recognised brands in New Zealand, giving you the power to buy at the right price. Our current Alliance Partners include Vodafone, Bunnings, ANZ, Xero, Z Energy and Rothbury Insurance.

As much as you want!
You get to choose what level of turnover/income you want to start your Green Acres franchise with. But there's no need to stop there – you can make even more money depending on your desire and motivation without being penalised for doing so!

Our comprehensive training, ongoing support and award-winning systems remove the need for experience.
All you'll need is a good attitude and work ethic along with the desire to own your own business and be in charge of your life. With those traits, you're already well on your way to being a successful Green Acres business owner.

The guarantee is based on the average weekly gross turnover for the first 2 years. If you stick to the business and marketing plan put together in training along with following everything your are taught while being trained and fully commit to running your own business by not turning down work and losing jobs through poor workmanship then we guarantee you will earn the level of income you bought into and even more.
