Happy 3rd Birthday – paid contractors 161k, saved customers 116k

June 22, 2012

June 19th marks 3 years since went live in 2009 and we’ve come a LONG way.

Birthdays are good days to reflect on the past so sere’s some numbers of how we’ve been doing:

  • 7,772 lawns have been mowed
  • Orders have almostĀ doubled each year, so orders in 2010 were double 2009, 2011 double 2010, etc
  • $161,617 have been paid to contractors (wow!)
  • Customers have saved roughly $116,000 compared to if they were paying the average lawn mowing price of $35

That’s… amazing, really, when you think about it, and we’re only in 4 cities, imagine how far we could go if we were in every major US city?

The 161k paid to contractors is the really great part, because that is money the contractors probably wouldn’t have received any other way, so we’re helping a lot of people earn a living during this poor economy.

Thank you to all the customers who have continued to put their faith in us to have their lawn mowed and the many great contractors that do all the hard work.
