Founded in 1970 by Desmond and Brenda Rice, Weed Man Lawn Care has evolved into one of the leading lawn care companies in North America, with a network of local owners and operators who provide professional and environmentally sound lawn management services. Through a licensing agreement with Turf Management Systems Inc., Turf Holdings Inc. and its 13 sub-franchises support the system of Weed Man franchises in more than 240 territories across the United States.
A longtime industry leader, Weed Man was recently honored for its recruiting and community affairs efforts in support of veterans. Named a 2012 Military Friendly Franchise by G.I. Jobs magazine, the company was recognized not only for offering financial incentives specifically for veterans, but also for its involvement in helping military families.
The Weed Man business opportunity requires a low up-front investment. It is designed to engender financial success by providing an established business model and an extensive support system to help achieve long-term growth. The company gives honorably discharged veterans who are returning to civilian life, or searching for a career change, a 25 percent discount on the regular franchise fee. Offered as part of the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative, a voluntary effort from the International Franchise Association, the discount aims to help veterans make their business profitable as quickly as possible.
In addition, through a partnership with Project EverGreen, a nationwide non-profit group who works to preserve and enhance green spaces, the lawn care company offers a way to give back to fellow veterans while benefiting the community at large. Through its GreenCare for Troops program, Weed Man franchise owners help provide free lawn care to some of the 15,000 participating military families, supplying a needed service, making a difference in their communities, and creating healthy green spaces for all to enjoy.
Weed Man Lawn Care operations across the nation provide environmentally responsible fertilization, weed control, and integrated pest management services. For franchise opportunity information, visit www.WeedManFranchise.com
