Weed Man franchisees come from several different backgrounds. Whether you currently own an independent landscape or pest control company or work in a completely unrelated industry, Weed Man offers entrepreneurs an opportunity that many franchise organizations do not. Not only do franchisees get the chance to experience recurring revenues and economic stability – they also receive one-on-one mentoring with their highly experienced Weed Man consultant.
Each and every year, franchisees sit down with their franchisor to create a road map to success, or in Weed Man’s terms, the business plan. But this isn’t just any business plan. The time spent with your franchisor will be used to go over everything from the number of employees required, to the amount of printer ink you’ll use – an ideology that began decades ago when Roger Mongeon, C.E.O., Weed Man USA, decided to get involved in the lawn care company as a franchisee.
He created a 10-year business plan – a practice he perfected while working in his decade-long career at Union Carbide. Today, Weed Man’s systems make up a large part of the company’s ‘secret sauce.’
“If you start off with great people and you stick with your commitment to taking care of your customers…and then you instill this cultural way of looking at your business through a business plan, that’s the heart of the franchise system we brought to the U.S.,” Mongeon says. “Through that we use people and systems to make sure once you develop the business plan, you can execute the plan.”
The business plan incorporates many factors of running a successful business. Over the two-and-a-half-day long meeting, franchisees and franchisor discuss the budget for the coming year, marketing tactics and hiring, equipment-buying and so much more. “Many people make a business plan, but they don’t make it alive throughout the year [like Weed Man does],” C.O.O. of Weed Man USA, Jennifer Lemcke states.
