Behind the Scenes: Turning Prospects into Success Stories

Lately, it seems as though we have been writing one Success Profile after another when it comes to Weed Man USA franchisees (click here for one of our latest profiles). Of course, we’re not complaining, but it is likely that a lot of our readers wonder just how we do it! Well, there are many different factors that contribute to our company’s overall success, but prior to success comes finding the right people, building a relationship and introducing the many facets of our award-winning franchise system. Let’s take a deeper look at the behind-the-scenes of turning prospects into success stories, and all that goes into providing Weed Man USA franchisees with the smoothest possible path to success.

Finding Valuable Prospects

We receive a number of leads per week, from people who are interested in investing in Weed Man. As well as receiving an influx of incoming leads, we also put a lot of effort into targeting existing lawn, landscape and pest control business owners, offering them a great opportunity to diversify their services. We reach out to potential prospects by using various social media outlets, attending networking events and trade shows, such as the Green Industry Expo, as well as carrying out calling and direct mail campaigns, among other things.

Why Franchise?

Weed Man franchisees enjoy exclusive rights to the territory or territories they invest in. We also provide franchisees with an exclusive computer system, effective marketing systems, and dominant purchasing power. We are an award-winning franchise network and have an excellent reputation as well. Did you know Weed Man USA was named One of the Best Franchises to Buy, by Forbes?

Mutual Investigation

Next, comes the beginning of a usually long, but informative process. Various phone calls are scheduled with a Weed Man USA franchise consultant, in order to determine whether the opportunity is a good fit for both parties. This is an imperative part of the overall process, as prospects are asked questions regarding their current career and finances. Our franchise consultant also takes the time to get to know prospects on a more personal level. Prospects are also encouraged to ask us questions in order to learn more about Weed Man and the opportunity as a whole.

Talking Testimonials

Once the various stages of the mutual investigation process are complete, we suggest prospects contact existing Weed Man USA franchisees, to gain an even better understanding of what the company is all about. Written testimonials are great, however speaking with a successful franchisee is even better! For the same reason, our franchise consultant will then set-up a meeting with Weed Man USA’s COO Jennifer Lemcke and/or the appropriate franchisor, to finalize the process.

Comprehensive Training

Once the decision has been made to hop aboard the Weed Man train, new franchisees will attend a 10-day training session held at Weed Man USA’s corporate office in Ontario, Canada, addressing all aspects of business operations, including administration, technical, marketing, business planning and budgeting.

It Doesn’t Stop There

Inevitably, the success of a Weed Man franchise really is dependent on a franchisee’s commitment and dedication to their business. At the same time though, ongoing support is a great benefit of partnering with us. Our team of regional franchisors includes some of the biggest names in the green industry. They are never more than a phone call away, and are always ready to provide franchisees with expert consultation as their company takes off. If franchisees ever require a refresher, they are always welcome to attend additional training sessions at our corporate office. Our franchisees are our business partners, and we’re all in this together!

Achieving Success

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
