Weed Man has almost 40 years of lawn care experience, and we have grown to be the world’s largest lawn care franchise. The reason for our growth is our partnership with our existing franchisees. With the hard work and dedication of our franchisees, and our undeniable devotion to customer service, we have built a successful and recognizable brand.
While growth has been fuelled by expansion of the housing market over the last several years, demographic trends indicate growth that will extend beyond the housing boom, with an increasingly greater percentage of homeowners hiring a professional lawn care company.
What sets us apart form the other franchise opportunities?
Strategic Vision – Promises Kept
Commitment, Quality, Integrity: For close to 40 years, Weed Man has built upon founder Des Rice’s uncompromising commitment to serving the customer. Keeping true to his vision provides Weed Man with a competitive advantage and allows us to build a strong national brand based on keeping promises and exceeding expectations.
The Weed Man Brand
The power of the Weed Man brand is derived from our distinctive yet effective message to the consumer. Extensive market research verifies the effectiveness of positioning our franchisees as locally owned and operated lawn care providers who have been given the tools to operate as knowledgeable professionals. The message is very simple, but it resonates with lawn care consumers who, research has shown, place a priority on trust.
Superior Products with Dominant Purchasing Power
Our devotion to quality is apparent in the products that our franchisees use; it all begins with our specially formulated slow release fertilizer that is exclusively available to Weed Man franchisees. Other services include: seasonal applications of weed control, crabgrass control, insect control, disease control, over seeding, liming applications and mechanical core aeration.
With over 200 franchises across Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom, Weed Man franchisees enjoy extremely favorable volume pricing, as well as payment terms that are negotiated with suppliers based on anticipated system-wide purchases.
Many of our systems have been created and refined by engineers, accountants, lawyers, educators and other professionals that have joined the Weed Man family over the years. We work hard in providing you with everything that you will need to build a long lasting business. It all starts with a strong business plan, which we work together in creating during the initial training, followed by a solid agronomic program, and finally the marketing and technical systems that will help you execute the plan. We know the key to success is people and we have all the training programs available for you to train your Weed Man team.
Industry Experience and Support
Every Weed Man franchisee is supported by their local and experienced franchisor that represents decades of lawn care operations experience. The franchisor serves as a personal consultant and mentor, providing experience, guidance and encouragement. Your franchisor will work with you each step of the way to ensure your complete, long-term success. Among the many franchise opportunities you can choose from, this is a unique benefit you are unlikely to find elsewhere. Each of our franchisors knows exactly what is needed to create a successful lawn care business, and each is committed to sharing that knowledge with you.
