Why would I want to consider a business focused on outdoor lighting?

The Outdoor Living residential space is a multi-billion dollar business in North America, with strong growth trends that show no signs of slowing based on the latest consumer research.

I don’t have any lighting or electrician experience, so is this the right business for me?

Previous lighting experience is not a requirement as our training programs and franchise support teams will teach you all the basic elements you need to know. After all, we are looking for franchise operators who are looking to build a vibrant and growing business, not experienced electricians. In fact, many successful OLP franchisees began their careers with no practical lighting knowledge at all.

How can an OLP franchise help me grow my existing business?

Pursuing this business opportunity can help you diversify your existing business mix by marketing OLP projects to your current client base. You can broaden your client demographic and win more bids by becoming the one-stop service provider for all outdoor project needs for your clients. By cross-marketing the services of your respective businesses, you can increase your “share of wallet” and generate more cost-effective new client acquisition strategies. You can also leverage your existing corporate infrastructure by adding incremental OLP revenue to your operations.

What is the cost of an average residential project for OLP?

As outlined in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which you will receive during our Discovery Process, the Average Residential Project Price in 2017 was $3074 and generated healthy gross profit margins. The FDD also contains many other interesting actual data statistics as measured by our current franchise owners.
