New owner for established business TruGreen Milton Keynes

Established franchise, TruGreen Milton Keynes has recent changed hands and Richard Young is now the proud owner of the flourishing business.  

When the opportunity to purchase the TruGreen Milton Keynes territory came along, Richard Young jumped at the chance.

Previously a business owner in the online retail sector, Richard felt he had got his business to where he could, and decided the time was right to embark on a new journey.


That’s when I found the TruGreen opportunity! I was looking for something that was equally as flexible.” Said Richard.

When looking for the right opportunity, Richard had a set criteria list. One of those was that he would still be around to see his children wake up in the morning and then read them a bed time story before bed.

I wanted something that wouldn’t take me into the corporate world. I’ve been there and done that. Family time is important for me and that home, work balance. I also looked at several other opportunities during my research but once I was in contact with TruGreen, I instantly knew this was the right decision. The level of expertise from Steve as the Brand Manager sounded valuable and I really felt like I would never be alone if I needed any support.” added Richard.

Future plans

Initially Richard plans to take the time to get to know all his customers and allow himself a couple of months to settle. However, he hopes to have two vans on the road by March 2021 and then three by the end of the year.

I feel like the sky is my limit with TruGreen. My predecessor has done a great job getting the territory up and running and now I have an opportunity to grow it – I’m really excited!” finished Richard.

High hopes for Richard and his old, but new, venture

All of our franchisees receive unlimited guidance and support for their TruGreen business. In particular Brand Manager, Steve Welch takes great pride in watching franchise owners grow in size and profits.

“It is great to welcome Richard 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

Is now the right time to buy?

Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has brought many challenges to the business world, TruGreen Lawn Care has remained largely unaffected because of the ability to provide lawn care services from a social distance. We look forward to seeing Richard’s progress in our growing sector. All non-practical aspects of Richard’s training were completed remotely, with Richard only attending our franchise support centre face to face for his practical training and lawn care examinations.
