CLEVELAND - Weed Man USA earned the number one spot in the lawn care category for Entrepreneur magazine's annual Franchise 500, the company announced.

Weed Man is recognized for its exceptional performance in areas including financial strength and stability, growth rate and system size. Since 2009, the company has jumped up 300 spots on the annual list, the company reports.

"Weed Man USA is honored to receive the number one ranking in the lawn care sector," said Jennifer Lemcke, COO of Turf Holdings and Weed Man USA. "We take great pride in making sure the right systems are in place to help our franchise owners be successful.
