Community Champion Award

Weed Man’s name in the lawn care industry is second to none, and people are seeing how our locally owned and operated franchises are made up of their neighbors and friends, people that care and are passionate about causes close to their hearts and the communities they live in and serve every day. As a network, we take pride in giving back, and we will continue to advocate for our communities in meaningful ways for years to come.


Winner: Weed Man Springfield, MA

Innovation Award

With all that’s gone on this past year, we felt that tonight would be the perfect time to introduce a well-deserved surprise award: the Innovation Award. When COVID hit this past spring, Weed Man’s marketing efforts were impacted in a BIG way, with many franchisees scrambling to figure out how to generate customers safely in the face of this “new normal”. One particular franchise took it upon themselves to explore alternatives, ultimately bringing Facebook advertising into the mix.. This sparked some great conversations and really got the Facebook ball rolling across the entire network. Many offices started running their own ads in house or partnered with a vendor, which led to thousands of Facebook leads being generated across the US and Canada. 


Winner: Chelsea Howard from Weed Man Western Kentucky
