After 12 and a half years of growing and enjoying this successful Crewcut business, the owners of this master franchise are looking to move on.

Beginning in January 2007 with only 36 customers, the business has blossomed to having nine hard working, highly motivated, self-employed franchisees, with a 10th franchise in negotiation to start in spring.

A passive income is being made from the franchisees paying a weekly management fee to the master franchise. Income is also made from a weekly garden bag organic waste collection service and a comprehensive lawn mowing portfolio of commercial and residential customers. Over 95% of lawn mowing is done by ride-on.


The business consistently shows over $100,000 as a nett cash surplus per annum.

As a master franchise owner, you decide on the amount of physical work you want to do. Section tidies, gardening, and hedge trimming work can be kept for yourself or distributed amongst your team to boost their income.

An 11th franchise can easily be created for sale and still leave a good customer base for the master franchise to service.

As an already long established, trusted, and successful business in the region, the hard work has been done, but there is still ample opportunity for growth in franchise numbers and your income.

Plant and equipment is included in the price. They can be seen in the actual photos and comprehensive details can be provided as requested.


The master franchise owners are also separately selling their three-bedroom house that is only three minutes to central Kerikeri. More details can be provided as requested.


As the regional manager(s), you will be providing support, mentoring, and growth for your franchisees.

The Crewcut National Office also provides similar support and more, for Regional Master Franchisees with national conferences, marketing, operational, and financial expertise.

For financial performance details and other information, please make contact and we will send an Expression of Interest form to be filled out and returned.

Asking price is $230,000.

This is an established Crewcut Franchise business in the Bay of Islands area which can be operated by one person. This area still has a steady growth rate.  There are beautiful uncrowded beaches, fishing, diving, surfing, boating and a mountain biking track.



Crewcut is a NZ owned company with over 27 years in the business and known for great service to its customers.  It has a very experienced Kerikeri regional office to provide back up support if, and when required.


This particular run has been established for over 10 years, and we have built up a very loyal and interesting client base, and a particularly scenic backdrop for a good deal of our work.




We have for sale a package which includes a client base of around 42 and equipment.  Turnover is $55k plus.  Full training will be given to the purchaser.  We have a cloud based Crewcut accounting package with full training if required.



There is a 1996 Toyota Dyna truck, with tail lift and 2.8 naturally aspirated diesel  engine.  This only requires a WOF and a drivers licence.  The truck is much easier to manoeuvre into all of our customer properties compared to a vehicle and trailer.
