June 3, 2016 -  By

weed-manCNBC.com listed Weed Man as one of nine low-cost franchises that could make you rich. Weed Man operates more than 180 franchises in the U.S. providing fertilization, weed and insect control to thousands of residential and commercial clients.

“While we still see significant interest from green industry professionals looking to expand their maintenance and installation operations, we are also seeing franchisees join us from outside the green industry,” said Jennifer Lemcke, COO for Weed Man.

Prospective new Weed Man franchisees make an initial investment of at least $43,700 for single-territory training, marketing support and a computerized operations system.

“Our existing franchise owners are some of the best and brightest minds in the business, and they are always available to help guide new owners through the onboarding process,” said Lemcke. “It has been one of our cornerstones from the beginning.”

Lemcke also points to the fact that existing Weed Man franchise owners own multiple locations and continue to buy more as their business grow.

For example, Atlanta-based Weed Man franchisee Jim McClure operated his own landscaping business when he bought his first franchise in 2001. Since then McClure has expanded his service area to serve nearly 10,000 customers in Atlanta’s northern suburbs, and generate revenues approaching $5 million with a 15 to 20 percent return.
