Madison Lawn Care Franchise Honored with Prominent Award

Weed Man of Madison Receives Community Champion Award at Annual Conference

MADISON, Wis. – Andy Kurth, the owner of
Weed Man
of Madison, a local lawn care franchise, was recently honored as the recipient of the 2014 Community Champion Award at Weed Man USA’s annual convention that took place in Palm Coast, Fla. at the Hammock Beach Resort.

The Community Champion award is presented to the franchisee who has demonstrated exemplary commitment to community service through regular involvement in local causes, fundraising efforts and volunteerism.

“Andy has not only embraced his role in his community, but he has also become an incredible ambassador for the lawn care industry,” said Jennifer Lemcke, COO of Weed Man and Turf Holdings, Inc. “He realizes that time invested on creating partnerships with organizations is a way to help impact industry perception. We continue to be astounded by his continual involvement.”

Kurth has spent time serving on the boards of “Friends of Clean Lakes” and “Citizen Action Committee” and is a part of the Pesticide Applicator Training Steering Committee. Additionally, he has sponsored and partnered with DECA to help not only financially with scholarships, but also with coaching, judging and running competitions to build relationships with business teachers and their students. He is also a member of Trout Unlimited, where he volunteers his time working with veterans struggling with PTSD.

“Giving back to the community has always been extremely important to me,” said Kurth. “Being a Weed Man franchise owner has given me the freedom to get even more involved, not only in lawn care industry organizations, but also in organizations that really help out the local community.”
