Weed Man Announces Aggressive South Florida Development Plans
Lawn Care Franchise Announces New Sub-Franchisor; ASI Landscape Management to Initially Develop 14 Territories in Tampa Bay Area
November 11, 2020 // Franchising.com // TAMPA BAY, Fla. - Weed Man, North America’s largest lawn care franchise welcomes its newest sub-franchisor to the 50-year running legacy company. CEO Joe Chiellini and COO Mark Almedia, of central Florida’s highest quality landscape management company, ASI Landscape Management, are now the official sub-franchisors set to drive Weed Man expansion plans and services throughout South Florida.
The qualified duo and their experienced and talented team members will be instrumental to Weed Man’s development across South Florida. With their first lawn care season beginning in 2021, the sub-franchisors will be operating throughout the Tampa Bay area with 14 territories to start. They will increase the Weed Man brand awareness and superior service throughout Southern Florida with both new qualified franchisees and multiple corporate locations.
The business partners are strong examples for the next generation of Weed Man franchise owners as they have taken their humble beginnings as a two-man residential operation and scaled into a multi-county $14 million commercial business.
Joe retired from his nearly 30-year career as a Captain for Hillsborough County Fire and Rescue, all while growing his landscape management company. Mark’s been working with Joe since 1995, and quickly climbed the ranks as Joe relied on his management and leadership, throughout his career with the fire department. Mark became a partner in 2005 and vice president/COO of the company. Their entrepreneurial drive, unmatched experience and proficiency in the green industry caught the attention of Weed Man.
“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 is exactly what it will take to be successful in Florida.”
The sub-franchisors 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 Joe Chiellini, Weed Man sub-franchisor for Southern Florida. “Especially, as we begin working directly with new and driven Weed Man business owners, our role as sub-franchisor 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 United States.”
