Hello! My name is Josh with Grounds Guys of Lima! Id like to take a few minutes to explain to you a few opportunities we have opening with our company The Grounds Guys Landscape Management company, but first I do want to take a minute to explain who we are. First of all yes we are a franchised company but we are independently owned and managed, our franchise allows us to have control of our business unlike other franchises, it simply helps give us tools we need to succeed, and success is what we are driven for. 

In our type of business we are always looking ahead for the next big thing, with winter tying up we have to start looking ahead to spring and summer. Because 2018 was such a successful year and because of new customers we are looking to add key components to our team! That is where you come in, we are growing, come grow with us!
