Palmerston North Business for Sale

A turnkey­­­­ opportunity has opened up in Palmerston North for individuals or couples who want to start an outdoor business.

Due to an illness, the current owners of this well-established lawn mowing business are intending to sell their Crewcut franchise. 

If you want to be your own boss, stay fit, be outdoors all the time, and earn a good income while at it, a Crewcut business would be the best choice!

Start your lawn mowing and garden maintenance business in Palmerston North

With over 85 regular clients within the city of Palmerston North, it’s the best time to start your own lawn and garden business in the North Island. The business also sees new quotes coming in all the time, so there is great possibility to grow the business even further.

This lawn mowing run currently operates five days a week, but it can easily be condensed to a three or four-day a week operation. It provides a fantastic work-life balance for the owner.
