Last year, our franchisees reported 56.9% median profit margin (included in Item 19 in our FDD).

The demand for quality, precision lighting led OLP to develop our own sources of low-voltage, LED lighting fixtures with some of the leading LED chip manufacturers. Due to our system, size, and buying power, OLP franchisees have access to top-notch products at below-market rates. Therefore, you will be able to offer clients the best quality products at competitive rates while capturing high margins in your business.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives is the leading outdoor lighting franchise in the industry with over 60 locations and over 100,000 professional outdoor lighting installations. We offer a robust model which focuses on:

1. Low Initial Investment

2. Residual Income Growth Each Year

A key component of this model is the continued revenue stream that can be obtained from the Annual Maintenance Plans and Add-On Programs. An upscale client base is attracted to the ongoing service model offered where customers never need to lift a finger to maintain their lighting system. As a franchisee builds their client base, this “annuity” dramatically increases year after year. This same system of recurring revenue is followed in all three tiers of the lighting offerings in residential, holiday, and hospitality lighting.
