CLEVELAND, Sept. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to the 2012 IBIS World market report, the green industry has annual revenues of $61 billion. Americans are passionate about their yards and are willing to go to great lengths to take care of it. Companies like Weed Man USA, North America's No. 1 franchise lawn care provider, are reaping the benefits of the growing industry.
With a current presence in more than 310 territories across the country, Weed Man USA is expected to expand into 41 additional territories in 2013. The company is projected to reach $63 million in sales in the United States by the end of the year, further positioning Weed Man USA as the leading lawn care franchise opportunity in the green industry. Company executives see substantial franchise growth opportunities all across the United States, in particular Indiana, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, California, Texas, and Massachusetts.
While many franchises have been challenged with skyrocketing operating costs due to economic factors and market conditions, Weed Man USA has remained an innovator in helping franchise owners remain successful. To assist new and existing owners who are looking to expand their franchise, the company recently launched a partnership with BoeFly, the No. 1 marketplace for franchise lending. BoeFly revolutionizes how deals get done by seamlessly connecting all parties, including lenders, borrowers, franchisors, investors, buyers and sellers to a potential transaction and facilitating the efficient completion of the transactions.
From grand opening support to ongoing training seminars, Weed Man USA is continuously creating new programs to set their current franchise owners up for success. The company recently received high praise from Franchise Business Review for franchisee satisfaction. The survey asked franchisees questions related to training and support, system communication, franchisor/franchisee relations, financial opportunity, business lifestyle, and overall satisfaction with their business. The company ranked No. 2 in the Top Service Franchises category.
"We are able to call ourselves an industry leader because of the ongoing support and dedication to our franchise owners over the past 40 years," said Jennifer Lemcke, COO of Turf Holdings, Inc., the company that owns the expansion rights for Weed Man USA. "Our new partnerships and support programs have helped us further our development efforts and we are looking forward to the fourth quarter of 2013."
With an initial investment ranging between $40,000 and $60,000 the franchise is offering prospects exciting opportunities to be a part of the company's nationwide growth. For more information on the Weed Man USA franchising opportunity, visit www.weedmanfranchise.com.
