Growing up, I was that kid. You know, the one who was always setting up lemonade stands or out mowing every lawn in the neighborhood. Heck, I even charged my dad $15 to cut our grass each week! Then one day I saw a truck pull up outside my aunt and uncle’s house to do a treatment on their lawn and being the budding entrepreneur that I was, I went over and took a look at the invoice the technician left behind. When I saw the total, something clicked for me and even though I was only 12 years old at the time, I decided that someday, somehow I would start a lawn care business of my very own.
I went on to make that dream a reality and in 2021, I sold my first lawn care company and launched Turf Badger right here in Wisconsin. From day one, my goal has remained the same: to go the extra mile for my customers and provide them with safe, effective pest control and lawn care services they can count on. I guess I was onto something because within the first three months, my team and I had signed up more than 400 accounts. Today, we’ve grown Turf Badger to six locations with thousands of customers across Wisconsin and Michigan and within the next five years, we’re on track to hit 100. I’d say my 12-year-old self would be pretty impressed with what we’ve accomplished so far!
Now after more than a decade in the business, I’m excited about helping entrepreneurs find success as Turf Badger franchisees. Whether you’re currently working in pest control or lawn care or you’re interested in becoming part of a growing, recession-proof industry that offers a ton of job satisfaction, I’d love to be part of your journey. Below, you can find all the details about what you can expect when you become a franchisee along with information on the fee structure and an inquiry form for you to fill out. Between our proven business model, our strong reputation and our comprehensive training and coaching program, I’m confident that you’ll be on track to grow and scale your new business much faster than you think. And I’ll be here cheering you on and supporting you every step of the way.
I look forward to talking with you about becoming part of the Turf Badger family very soon.
Turf Badger provides a vast array of services that include residential and commercial pest remediation as well as a refined lawn care application schedule.
