IntelliTurf Launches New Franchise Business Opportunity for the Backyard Putting Green and Synthetic Turf Industry
- Currently selling golf business franchises in 34 states, IntelliTurf works with qualified individuals as well as businesses to deliver the highest quality backyard putting greens , synthetic lawns, playgrounds, and other recreational landscaping.

Throughout our years in business customers, companies and colleagues have expressed interest in developing their own synthetic turf business. While installing our artificial turf for backyard putting greens or playgrounds, other contractors or neighbors on the job site would approach us about the products and the business. As inquiries for information on our business and our products increase, so have the number of parties looking to start a putting green or lawn installation service.

Maybe but I don't think it will be in my area, I have explored this part of the industry and I believe I will leave it to others.

I know of only two people around here that have one installed, and I only know of one local company that does them. But they do a very poor job, I have seen some of their work.

What type of demographic would the ideal customer of this product fall into?

I mean are they all doctors and lawyers or do middle class property owners purchase these things as well?

I have noticed that it is usually well to do business owners. Such as owners of engineering, manufactoring, construction, etc. I would say that they mean income is around $150,000+

What kind of profit do you think you could make on such an installation?

I think that you could make a killing not only on the green installation, but possible landscape installation around the green area.

You know that is a very good point. It has the potential to really create a lot of upsells.

Troy you are always thinking
