Franchise owner testimonial from Tad Burkhardt, owner of The Grounds Guys of Sanford:

“I purchased The Grounds Guys about a year ago and struggled in the beginning not knowing anything about the landscape industry. I decided to take the Penn Foster course for landscaping and since then have increased my knowledge and business substantially. The information provided in the classes relates to the real-world issues I deal with on a daily basis and the classes are easy to take at my pace. I don’t have a whole lot of time to spend on classes that aren’t concise and explain things at a level I can understand, and Penn Foster has created a system that does exactly that. I would strongly recommend it to anyone starting out in the business.”
