Noon Turf Care is on the grow. Customers. Revenues. Employees. Service vehicles. You name it.
Even in this wobbly, uncertain economy, this Massachusetts lawn care company, ran by brothers Chris, 35, and Matt Noon, 32, keeps adding to its presence in the state. More importantly, say its owners, it keeps returning profit enough to fuel the growth.
“People often forget about that part, especially in our industry that’s so focused on growth. If it’s not top-line growth, you’re just spinning your wheels,” says Chris, the company president.
Even after increasing its revenues 150 percent these past three years (considered to many to be the toughest three years the green industry has ever experienced), the brothers have managed to keep the company in the black.
They’ve done it by dividing responsibilities – each brother bringing his particular expertise to the company and by using technology and Web-based services such as Google Earth Pro ($400 annual fee), which facilitate progressive ways to sell and manage their services. The company also employs a “fantastic IT phone system”, says Chris, that links in all company employees and records vital conversations.
