Robin AutopilotTM is the world's first robotic lawn care service. Since September of 2016 we’ve been combining proven robot mower technology with highly-professional human crews to create a more Eco-friendly, Reliable and Affordable lawn care experience.
Over the past 20 years, more than 1,000,000 robotic mowers have been sold in Europe, and robots will soon dominate the U.S. landscaping market. However, the robots require professional installation and maintenance, and U.S. consumers rely on landscapers for more than just mowing. They need a full-service approach.
That’s why we install robots to handle the regular mowing and then regularly send human crews for trimming, edging, weeding, and other yard care needs. The result is a higher quality, more reliable service for less than most people pay now. It’s a low initial investment, low overhead model with high margins due to the decreased labor costs.
A robotic mower is installed at a customer’s home. The robot handles the repetitive mowing, while human crews come out periodically to take care of the edging, trimming, weeding and other yard care needs. Our customers never have to worry about an overgrown yard and our crew members can focus their talents on higher-value, higher-margin activities.
This is a recurring revenue service. Customers’ cards are automatically charged a set monthly fee based on their level of service and size of their property. Because of the robots, the price can be less than they’d pay traditional landscaping services while receiving higher-quality, more reliable service.
Massive change is coming to the $70 billion U.S. landscaping market. More than 1 million robotic mowers are already safely operating in Europe and the United States is next. Our franchisees are uniquely positioned to benefit from this shift toward more reliable, eco-friendly, lower-cost robotic mowing.
Robin Autopilot is by far the most experienced operator of robotic mowers in the United States. Our franchisees benefit from both our unmatched experience and the wave of robot adoption across the country.
Since September of 2016, Robin Autopilot has been the only full-service robot lawn care company in the market. Launched in Dallas, Texas, we quickly reached 200 robots installed during our first season. Word quickly spread through national appearances on CBS, ABC and other major networks, and local newspapers and TV stations as well. We’ve encountered and solved challenges such as fenced in backyards, sidewalk and driveway crossings, and common sources of wire breaks. We’ve tested robots from every major manufacturer and with Robin Autopilot you gain the benefit of our knowledge and experience-based process.
