“Weed Man has grown rapidly over the past few years and as our brand awareness has strengthened with it, more consumers are turning to our franchisees to better their lawns,” said Jennifer Lemcke, COO of Turf Holdings, the company that owns the expansion rights for Weed Man USA.

Lemcke noted that 2016 revenues surpassed $91 million, a nearly 10 percent increase over 2015. The company attributed this growth to customer demand; its royalty fee structure, which allowed existing franchisees to add more trucks to the road; and an expansion with independent operators who added the franchise to their existing business. 

“Our existing franchisees account for nearly 75 percent of the new territories we added in 2016,” Lemcke added. “They take pride in being the No. 1 local source for any lawn care needs and are expanding their territories to bring these communities the high-level care businesses and home owners are seeking.”

Weed Man USA ranked No. 2 on the 2016 LM Franchise Best Buys list. The franchise has also been recognized by Forbes, Entrepreneur magazines and Franchise Times as one of the nation’s best franchises.
