North American lawn-care franchisor Weed Man USA recently awarded the company’s highest honor to Corbin and Audrey Schlatter of Weed Man Columbus North in Plain City, Ohio.
The Weed Man USA Award of Excellence recognizes the Schlatters for achieving operational excellence in all aspects of their franchise. Weed Man USA describes the recognition as “a significant milestone that can only be achieved through years of meticulous planning and execution.”
Among other accomplishments, said Jennifer Lemcke, chief operating officer of Weed Man and Turf Holdings Inc., the Schlatters’ Weed Man Columbus North franchise has achieved net sales of $2 million while expanding its territory.
Corbin Schlatter has been a business owner in the lawn and landscape industry since the age of 19. He sold his landscaping company in 2005 to focus on growing Weed Man. His wife, Audrey, left the nursing field to join Weed Man in 2015, and the company’s growth since then has included the addition of Green County and a recent expansion into Dayton.
“We have our team and family to thank for this award,” Corbin Schlatter said.
