Mow Like a Girl
25 Feb 20
Ask most people to describe the ‘typical’ lawn and garden franchisee and they’d probably say young, male, tradie-types. So, it might be surprising to find out that at V.I.P. we have a number of women who are embracing the great outdoors and have their own Lawn and Gardening franchise.
If you’ve seen this photo before, it might have been because it featured in The Advertiser’s Career pages at the beginning of Summer. 2019 SA Excellence in Franchising Awards runner-up, Allison Bunting is one of the female lawnies here at V.I.P. and she also loves being the first franchisee to have a solar-powered trailer with its lighter, rechargeable Makita tools.
Beryl Hunt and Sonia Westell are two more of our female franchisees who made the career change from finance and retail, and government work.
The appeal of working for V.I.P.
When they were asked what it was about V.I.P. that they liked, our female franchisees had quite a list, which included — being your own boss, not being confined to an office, the flexibility of creating your own schedule, and joining a well-known brand.
You can meet more of our franchisees here and find out what it was that made them choose a V.I.P. franchise for their business.
