Weed Man Stands Above Competition With No. 1 Ranking

Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® Ranks Company as leader in the Lawn Care Category

January 17, 2012 // Franchising.com // TORONTO — Entrepreneur Magazine has ranked Weed Man as the No. 1 franchise in the Lawn Care category in the magazine’s annual Franchise 500® rankings.

Weed Man, which is North America’s leading lawn care franchise company, ranked 105 overall and far surpassed all other players in its category. To determine the rankings for all 500 companies, the magazine uses an exclusive formula that takes into account objective and quantifiable factors, including financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.

“We would never have achieved such an honor without having the right people in our franchise system that work hard on a daily basis to make us successful,” said Jennifer Lemcke, COO of Weed Man and Turf Holdings, LLC. “This is further proof that Weed Man is in a recession-resistant industry with the right business model. While other companies are dramatically scaling back in this uncertain economy, Weed Man keeps moving forward and we look forward to a great year in 2012.”

In addition to its top honor, Weed Man ranked No. 23 in the Top Home-based Business category and No. 87 for America’s Top Global category.

With a presence in more than 260 territories throughout the United States, Weed Man is expanding rapidly and has added eight new franchises in 2011, with an even stronger national growth in place for 2012. Weed Man specializes in providing environmentally responsible fertilization, weed control and integrated pest management services.
