A varied work load provides grounds maintenance services to numerous
schools and sports fields, commercial properties, hospitals, housing
associations and many one off end users. We also provide some more
defined gardening services to a number of large private houses.
The busy franchise covers large areas of West Sussex, Sussex, Surrey and
into some northern parts of Kent. There are 18 employees within the business
with a day to day Operations manager, 8 Teams in vans and office
administration back up.
There are very few competitors in the same market space as Countrywide.
The large nationals are obviously in all areas and the many small “man in a
van” companies cannot compete with the reputation and backing of a larger
business such as Countrywide. With the backing of Franchisor, Backing of
Franchisees, Strong Corporate Image, Countrywide Certifications and
Accounts provide access to larger contracts.
The majority of Sales and Marketing activity has been completed via
Countrywide core marketing. 0800 number, website, yell.com, google,
mailshots, Countrywide telesales teams.
Our business is run from our office and secure storage and yard area located
in Copthorne, Crawley down on the outskirts of Crawley in West Sussex. We
sit almost centrally to our franchise area so are in the optimum location to
reach all of our clients properties.
