I don’t know anything about trees—can I still own a Schneider Shrub & Tree Care® franchise?
Yes! You don’t have to be an arborist to own a Scheider franchise. If you have good business sense, a desire to learn and grow, work well with both customers and employees, and pursue excellence, you’re just the type of person we’re looking for!
What are the financial requirements?
Prospective franchise owners must have a minimum of $50,000 in cash or liquid assets and a net worth of $100,000.
How much is the franchise fee?
The franchise fee is $50,000 per territory.
Will I have to pay royalties?
Yes; however, the fees decrease incrementally over time.
  • Years 1-3: 10%
  • Years 4-6: 8%
  • Year 7: 6%
How long are the franchise terms?
The initial term is 10 years. You can renew for 2 additional 5-year terms.
Will I receive training and/or professional development?
All new franchise owners will experience 11 days of onsite training at our facility in Taylors, SC. Training topics include business, sales, marketing, operations, tree care overview, and hands-on business operation. Ongoing training and support are available as needed.
Will I need to rent retail or office space?
You are not required to rent a workspace—you can work right from home!
What is the business outlook for tree care companies?
Historically, green industry jobs have outpaced traditional job growth by over 11%. As more people see the value of maintaining their homes, property, and the surrounding microenvironment, the demand for services like Schneider Shrub & Tree Care® also increases. As long as there are trees and shrubs, there is a need for tree service companies like ours.
