The history of the franchise
• Jim Penman started Jim’s Mowing in December 1980 and began franchising by mid 1989. He developed Jim’s mowing from a small and relatively unknown business into the largest and best-known mowing business in Australia.
• The business began to diverse into other services in 1994; the first division was Jim’s Cleaning, many others have followed since with Jim’s Professional Painting arriving in early 2005.
• We are one of the largest, oldest, and most experienced service franchise’s in the world and pride ourselves on innovation, and personalised customer satisfaction and service. Today we have in excess of 35 divisions and 3000 franchisees across Australia, New Zealand, Canada and UK.
