Locally Owned and Operated

What It Means to Weed Man

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. As a result, our franchise owners and their employees feel a strong commitment to service excellence as they work to beautify local properties and a wide variety of outdoor green spaces. We also hire talent right from our home communities, helping to boost the economy by keeping dollars at a local level.

What Does It Mean to “Go Local”?

“Going local does not mean walling off the outside world. It means nurturing locally owned businesses which use local resources sustainably, employ local workers at decent wages and serve primarily local consumers.[…]  Control moves from the boardrooms of distant corporations and back into the community where it belongs.” –Michael H Shuman, author of Going Local

Why Local Businesses Matter:
  • Compared to box stores, local businesses recycle a significantly larger share of revenue back into the local economy.
  • Local businesses create community-based jobs and often provide higher salaries than large corporations.
  • Unique, one-of-a-kind businesses add personality into a world dominated by chain brands. 
  • Local ownership ensures that key decisions are made by those who actually live in the local community and will inevitably feel the impacts of those decisions.
  • Networks of small businesses create healthy competition in the marketplace, driving prices down and keeping products and services more affordable for all.
Giving Back

Many locally owned and operated businesses build strong, relationship-driven communities by contributing to local causes. Recognizing that commitment and responsibility aren’t confined to business operations, our franchisees consistently leverage their energies and resources to give back to their local communities. Many of our offices demonstrate exemplary commitment to community service through regular involvement in local causes, fundraising efforts and volunteerism.
