The Garden Center Group

It's simple ... You have a garden center. We have solutions.  
Being independent is great, but you're on your own to figure out how to grow and manage your business. The Garden Center Group is a community of garden centers, consultants, service providers and vendors with one goal in mind... helping each other build successful companies. By building a community of garden centers and working toward a common goal, The Group is able to provide a network of professionals and business services most centers would not be able to afford on their own. And, unlike a buying group that boosts your purchasing power on products that you sell, we focus on business solutions designed to help you increase sales, improve operations and retain more profit.

Our Centers can participate in The Garden Center Group's Weekly Department Review (WDR), sharing sales and margin on our standardized chart of accounts covering 27 product categories plus Sales, Average Items per Transaction, Average Sale, Transaction Counts, Labor to Sales Ratio, and Inventory to Sales Ratio. Our Group Exclusive Annual Profit & Loss Study, now in its 18th year of extensive financial benchmarking, is the longest-running and most comprehensive study of its kind in North America. It is unmatched in helping garden centers make solid financial decisions. So why go it alone? Get involved in our community today!

Who We Are ... The core to the success of The Group rests on the people involved. We've pulled together an ever-growing list of experts (Service Providers) who assist our centers in solving operational challenges by providing insight, direction and one-to-one assistance when needed. With hundreds of years of combined experience, our team of experts will help you navigate the transformation of your business – providing the guidance you need to stay focused on your goals, and grow your profitability.
