When opening a business, it’s important to consider your potential competition. In any industry, having competition is inevitable – and can actually help drive your success! In lawn care, it’s no different. Although we are in the same industry and offer similar services to other lawn care franchises, there are several factors that set Weed Man apart from the competition:
Locally Owned & Operated
At Weed Man, we’re proud of the fact that all of our franchises are locally owned and operated, meaning that we live and work in the very communities that we serve. With other lawn care franchises, franchisees act as managers, while corporate controls day-to-day activities. Hiring locally is important to many consumers in today’s day and age. Our model allows franchisees to run their businesses independently, while only asking for support or guidance when wanted or needed. Owners are also able to cater to their communities in the best way they see fit, whether through involvement in local initiatives, giving back, or building a visible presence at community events.
Supportive Extended Weed Man Family
On the flip side, when franchisees do require our assistance, we have the best support in the industry in the form of regional sub franchisors and a dedicated corporate team. When new franchisees come on board, they immediately become part of Weed Man’s extended family, and we will do all we can to help them achieve success in their new endeavor.
One of the Best Franchises to Buy
Did you know? Just recently, Weed Man was named One of the Best Franchises to Buy by Forbes magazine. The decision was made based on data compiled by the franchise industry research firm FRANdata. Each and every franchise brand was analyzed and ranked by cost of initial investment. Five-year growth rates, five-year continuity rates, consistency of ownership, and level of franchisee support were weighed heavily in the process.
Reasonable Start-up Costs
Having been ranked #10 by Forbes of all franchise companies with entry fees less than $150k, Weed Man is an affordable investment for entrepreneurs. When investing in a double territory (300,000 population), like the majority of new franchisees do, the total capital investment can be as low as $118,450. That investment includes rights to the territory; initial and continuous training in all aspects of the business, including marketing, administration, technical, computer, business training and long-term planning; and our state-of-the-art computer system – developed especially for Weed Man.
Our exclusive, golf course quality slow-release fertilizer is top of the line and only accessible to the Weed Man network. This product provides our customers with visible, long-lasting results, which allows us to build our reputation of excellence.
If owning a business is something that you’ve seriously considered, or if you already own a business and are looking for an additional profit center, Weed Man is a great option! We would be happy to meet you, guide you and help you form a strategic partnership. For more information on franchising with Weed Man USA, visit http://www.weedmanfranchise.com.
