Jim Penman started a part-time gardening business while earning his PhD in history at Latrobe University. He launched a full-time mowing business in 1982 with a $24 investment. He originally aimed only at taking on subcontractors, but his business grew and he gradually began to specialise in the building up and selling of lawn mowing rounds.

By 1989 he franchised his business, and since then the Jim’s Group has become the largest franchise chain in Australian and the largest and best-known lawn mowing business in the world. Now with over 52 Divisions and 4000 franchisees nationally the group can service nearly anything you could think of. Jim’s Real Estate, being a newer division of the Jim’s Group, is independently owned and since its arrival in Early 2018 is grown and is on ground in both Victoria and South Australia
