I have been associated with the ABC company for lawn and garden services for 18 years. I started my journey as a cleaner and through hard work and determination, I reached the rank of a manager and manages a team of 8 employees. Almost every house in the city and nearby area is surrounded by lawns on all 4 sides of the house. It is important to keep these lawns manicured and well-watered as per the rules imposed by the government. But every person in the house either hoes for a job or study therefore, most of the residents are unable to cater to their lawns. They hire our services to maintain their lawns and get paid.
ABC is an online-based company and mostly works by phone. They call us to book our services and we dispatch a team of competent employees to take care of their lawn. Some of the residents book us on a weekly or monthly basis and pay according to it. Other than residential area, public parks and lawns of office buildings are also maintained by our company.
I have worked hard to achieve success in the field and make a name for myself but being associated with a major company, it is difficult to make yourself known. Therefore, I want to set up my own business of lawn and garden services. I will be able to teach employees myself and set my own rules of working. With an experience of 18 years, it will not be difficult for me to make this venture a successful business.
All the businesses related to lawn services are approved by the XYZ department before their start-up. I designed a business proposal for my idea, and I am attaching it with the following letter in hopes of seeking your approval. Kindly consider my request.
Eagerly waiting for your response.
