Weed Man adds ASI Landscape Management in franchise expansion

January 3, 2022 -  By

Weed Man added ASI Landscape Management of Thonotosassa, Fla., as its newest subfranchisor.

Weed Man said ASI Landscape Management CEO Joe Chiellini and COO Mark Almeda will be instrumental to the franchise’s development across South Florida. The subfranchisors will be operating throughout the Tampa Bay area with 14 territories to start. ASI Landscape Management will increase the Weed Man brand awareness and service throughout Southern Florida with both new franchisees and multiple corporate locations.

ASI Landscape Management started as a two-man residential operation and scaled into a multicounty $14 million commercial business. Chiellini retired from his nearly 30-year career as a captain for Hillsborough County Fire and Rescue, while growing his landscape management company. Almeda has been working with Chiellini since 1995 and quickly climbed the ranks. Almeda became a partner in 2005 and vice president/COO of the company.

“We’ve always been motivated to put Weed Man on the map in Florida, but knew it had to be done with the right partners, with a strong existing presence in the market and who matched our company’s winning culture,” said Weed Man Chief Executive Officer Jennifer Lemcke. “They understand the vision and know that Weed Man’s proven systems, paired with their level of experience in the area are exactly what it will take to be successful in Florida.”

The subfranchisors already have plans for expansion into another Florida market with 11 additional territories planned. The accomplished entrepreneurs and now sub-franchisors will be seeking qualified franchise partners to join them in establishing Weed Man lawn care throughout the region.

“We know our established roots and reputation in the area will be beneficial as we grow the franchise,” said Chiellini. “Especially, as we begin working directly with new and driven Weed Man business owners, our role as subfranchisor will serve as a hands-on, local point of contact. We will be the extra layer and extension of support to the existing corporate leadership team and network of other successful Weed Man franchise owners throughout the U.S.”
