Michiana Lawn and Landscaping Services
I have interviewed the owner of JK Michiana Landscaping, Kyle, who is doing very successful at serving the South Bend, Michiana and Southwest Michigan areas for over 10 years. When asked the following questions you will also see why you may want to contact this very motivated and successful professional for your own lawn care, landscaping and tree care needs.
What year was your company established?
"2006 is when our company went official. I was previously in the automotive business which ended up going nowhere. My wife and I both wanted to be business owners and has enjoyed lawn care and tree care for years.. at that point it just happened. Ever since we both have enjoyed working together and have built our business with honesty, quality, affordability, and friendly services."
What struggles did you have when opening your business?
"Living in Niles Michigan, a small town, we had to put our name out there in not only our city but surrounding Southwest Michigan and South Bend and surrounding areas. It took a short time to get the ball rolling and now most of our business comes from referrals from other customers we have served, continue to serve and recommend our work."
How are you currently bringing in new customers?
"We are building our customers from word of mouth, thumbtack, and small advertisement. Having great quality in your business is essential because others will tell everyone they know about how awesome their lawn, landscaping and trees look."
Do you think the internet has played a big role?
"I believe now in 2016 everything is about the internet. Not always, but that is where everyone is looking nowadays. There is no more looking through the phone book or yellow page book. If someone needs any of our services they will simply get on their phone or laptop to search for a local business owner."
Biggest struggle in 2016?
"The biggest struggle would be balancing business with home life. We're in the process of hiring new workers as my wife and I had our first son this month and she won't be working anymore aside from the office. Finding a reliable crew is going to be a task but in the long run allow more time to spend with my family and still run a successful business."
I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with this down to earth business owner, it is rare to find a genuine guy like him who prides himself on serving the people of Michiana. He also stated they offer monthly specials and coupons as well as new customer discounts. To reach him:
