A key to a successful business venture is securing a unique, profitable franchise operation. Foliage Design Systems provides its franchisees with training, support and resources to acquire everything needed to provide premium industry services to a myriad of businesses in your area.
FDS sells plants, planters and related materials and provides ongoing plant care services. Our business model provides recurring revenue under contract. Because our work is conducted on the client premises, FDS does not require a costly store, which in turn, demands long hours of precise staffing. FDS service personnel spend all of their time generating income without unpredictable or predictable slow periods and do not handle cash.
Currently, almost five million commercial buildings exist in the U.S Marketplace, including 5,723 registered hospitals, and 72 million sq. feet of convention centers. Beyond this, there are thousands of other establishments all requiring services for improving their building’s indoor atmosphere and aesthetics.
