FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Our Lighting Experts Offer Illuminating Answers

If you’re interested in embarking on an exciting new career in outdoor lighting, you no doubt have questions. Here, our team provides insightful answers. We’re excited about your interest and look forward to being your guiding light.

Why Should I Consider a Business in Outdoor Lighting?

Landscape lighting is big business. Global market research firm, Technavio, estimates the landscape lighting market will grow by $664 million by 2026. For the right entrepreneur, our industry represents an exciting opportunity to tap into desires to improve and maintain homes and businesses. We’ve been doing this for 25 years and the need for energy-efficient landscape lighting continues to grow. We need smart, motivated, business-minded people, like you, to help meet demand.

What If I Don’t Have Experience?

Previous experience as a landscaping lighting professional or electrician isn’t required. In fact, you don’t need to be a licensed electrician to design and install our low-voltage landscape lighting systems. While a background in business is helpful, we’re primarily interested in people who have a desire to succeed and a willingness to learn.

Can an OLP Franchise Help Grow My Existing Business?

Absolutely! Whether you already own an outdoor lighting business or another type of home service business, investing in an OLP franchise will give you brand presence, effective tools and proven systems for a competitive edge. For those who already own a home service business, landscape lighting is a lucrative opportunity to broaden and cross-market your services. If you’re currently in the landscape lighting business, you can benefit from our buying power, marketing support and technology platform to take your company further.

What Does the Average OLP Residential Project Cost?

The average residential project is around $4,000 and generates a healthy gross profit margin. For specifics, please see our latest Franchise Disclosure Document, which you’ll receive during our discovery process. There’s also potential for recurring revenue. OLP offers a comprehensive annual maintenance plan to keep our clients’ lighting systems looking as good as the day they were installed.

What is My Total Investment?

A typical investment range for our standard size territory is $85,025 to $184,050. Financing is available through our third-party lenders and specialty finance companies can help you fund the launch of your business with your retirement savings.

How Long is Training?

Our training takes seven days to complete but you’ll have ongoing support and additional training opportunities through our annual events, site visits and other programs.

What Types of Fixtures Do You Use?

We use professional grade copper and brass fixtures. The average residential project uses about 15 fixtures.

Are There Recurring Revenue Opportunities?

Your job isn’t done after installing the system. We work with our clients for years, whether it’s to add on or enhance their existing system, to extend their limited lifetime warranty (which includes annual maintenance), or cheering up their homes during the holidays with Christmas lights. Some of our franchisees have had client relationships for over 20 years!
