What it takes...

BigYellowBag® can take your business to the next level, but it helps to start at the right place with the right resources.

What you need:

EQUIPMENT

 

The following equipment is required to deliver BigYellowBags:  Flat bed truck/trailer combinations and truck mounted forklifts.  The rest of the equipment is minimal to start the BigYellowBag® program.

PASSION

 

Some owners/managers have a passion to be fully involved with the business they are in.  The soil business has a relatively short season which requires a passion and commitment from an entire organization to succeed.

COMMITMENT

 

The BigYellowBag® brand was built by the Schiedel family with the idea that “We are in the business of making people happy”.  When this commitment to customers is instilled into the workings of the BigYellowBag® program it breeds success.

MARKETING MATERIAL/PROGRAM


The magic of the BigYellowBag® program is to be able to bring a brand new concept/product into a market.  Our team of experts have been bringing this idea to consumers across North America for over 25 years and are ready to work with you to bring BigYellowBag® to your territory.

LOGISTICS SOFTWARE


How, When and Where are key factors while you are marketing or delivering BigYellowBags.  Our logistics software is purpose built to handle all the details for BigYellowBags, and can accommodate anything else you may need to deliver.

Success Story

Becoming part of the BigYellowBag team has been highly rewarding; I believe the value in the support of BigYellowBag corporate and the sharing with fellow licensees far exceeds the cost of the BYB license and royalty fees.

 

We are proud to be part of BigYellowBag!

Reimer's Farm Service

Revolutionizing the way soil is delivered

In 1994 Richard Schiedel, founder of Greenhorizons Group of Farms, believed there had to be a better way to deliver bulk soil. He brainstormed and came up with the idea of marketing soil in large bags to homeowners.  The implementation of his idea was left to his two sons, Ron and Steve. Together, they grew what was once an idea into a multi-million dollar venture and never looked back.

 

The BigYellowBag® holds a heaping cubic yard of rich, loamy soil, and is delivered straight to the customer’s doorstep. With convenience, quality, and customer satisfaction all packaged into one bag, it was no surprise that BigYellowBag® grew in popularity. BigYellowBag® made its first appearance in Southwestern Ontario, and has since spread across Canada and the U.S. BigYellowBag® is becoming a household name across North America, as the brand is able to successfully integrate into new markets.

 

Loading bag after bag of garden soil into a car, only to have to unload it again is time consuming and exhausting. Thanks to our easy ordering system, buying soil has never been easier. The customer orders and sets a delivery date, and the soil gets placed in the indicated delivery spot. Thanks to the unique bag design, there is no messy dirt pile left on the driveway, and there is no rush to spread the soil. The soil remains dry and ready-to-use until it is needed, making yard work or gardening convenient and enjoyable.

While BigYellowBag® is growing in popularity across North America, there are still territories available. We are looking for ambitious organizations to join our team and help further the availability of the BigYellowBag. Our Licensees have had great success integrating the brand into their local markets, and with the right tools and passion, your organization can also achieve great results! If you have the passion and are looking for an opportunity to expand your business, we would love to meet with you and discuss the opportunity to become a licensee!

FAQ

Why BigYellowBag?

 

BigYellowBag® was North America’s first bagged soil delivery service. Since 1994, we have spread throughout the continent launching licensees from Kingston to California. Our extensive support team, state-of-the art software, and unparalleled marketing strategy are the flagstones of the BigYellowBag® Program.

 

I don’t know anything about soil. Is this still an opportunity worth pursuing for me?

 

As farmers, we have a passion for making things grow. Understanding soil is an essential part of our existing industry, but that is not necessarily the case for all potential BigYellowBag® licensees. We have amassed a great deal of soil knowledge over our 200 years of combined agricultural experience, and we are excited to share that knowledge.

 

What is my initial license fee and what other expenses can I expect?

 

BigYellowBag® diversifies an existing business making your initial investment very low.  The licensee fee is $18,000.  Other expenses will include a yearly marketing program, Soil and empty bags.

 

I already sell soil at my business. Will BigYellowBags conflict with what I currently do?

 

BigYellowBags can complement an existing Soil or Mulch business.

 

BigYellowBag isn’t well known in my area, how can I infiltrate the market?

 

BigYellowBag® was the first to market soil in 1 cubic yard bags in North America.  Since then, we have sold BigYellowBags in over 100 cities.  Teaching consumers what the product is, what to use it for and why they would want to buy them.  Each of these cities started in the same way and a secret to the success is our diverse marketing team working with each Licensed Partner.

 

How big is each territory?

 

Each territory consists of an area in which there are potential bag sales of 10,000

 

How many territories make up a Licensed Area?

 

A licensed area contains a minimum of one territory, and the number of territories is limited to the delivery capabilities of the licensed partner.
