We are pleased to welcome one of the latest businesses owners to the TruGreen network, Paul Chaumeton is the proud new owner of TruGreen The Chilterns.
Corporate to outdoor
For most of his career, Paul has worked in the corporate world as an International Project Manager for real-estate, but when COVID-19 hit he decided his time travelling abroad weekly was over and went on the search for greener pastures. That’s where he came across TruGreen and the rest was history!
“Having worked in over 95 cities in 15 years, I decided it was time for a change. Of course, I toyed with the idea of retiring, but I’m not ready for that yet!” Said Paul.
Freedom & flexibility
All Paul knew in the beginning is that he wanted to do something that would allow him to be flexible and work outside. A TruGreen franchise is favoured amongst those looking for freedom, flexibility and the health benefits that come with working outdoors.
We always encourage prospective business owners to research, research, research! A franchise opportunity is more than just a purchase, it is a lifestyle choice and a commitment. As such, research is essential.
“I arrived at TruGreen after extensive research about what options were available out there to me, especially during the unprecedented times of COVID-19. I take a lot of pride in my own garden and lawn, and it’s this that helped me decide LawnCare was where I wanted to invest.” Said Paul
“I met with Steve and instantly the soldiers fell in line – I knew this was what I wanted to do.” Added Paul.
Paul has hopes of reaching 100 customers in 6 months and wants to have 3 vans on the road by 2022.
“It is great to welcome Paul to TruGreen Professional Lawncare, and I am sure that his focussed approach to business and in-depth knowledge of the local area, will prove another major asset to the ever-growing TruGreen Network, in offering our customers the very best in bespoke lawncare.” Added TruGreen Brand Manager, Steve Welch.
Covid-19 didn’t stop Paul from achieving his life-long goal of starting a business, and it isn’t expected to pose any difficulties for him in growing his lawn care venture, as he’s able to maintain a social distance by working in the great outdoors.
Much of his training academy was completed virtually, with only the practical training and examinations in person.
