When Desmond Rice started Weed Man in 1970 and began franchising in 1976, he might have had a sense that he was onto something good. It's doubtful that anyone could have foreseen the immense success that Weed Man would achieve with franchised locations in Canada, the United States and internationally. That said, Des has always been a man with vision.

As the business expanded, Des realized that he needed a team of management professionals to work with him. Michael J. Kernaghan joined Weed Man in 1987 and together they've taken the business to some pretty lofty heights.

It became obvious that not only did they know how to run a residential lawn care service successfully, but they understood how to run a large and profitable franchise. They knew how to satisfy the needs of their franchisees by creating systems that were repeatable. They initiated training programs that are, to this day, the envy of the industry. Their operational support has been proven by the success their franchisees have been enjoying for decades. Their marketing support has always been cutting edge and forward thinking. Weed Man is an iconic brand within the franchise industry and, quite frankly, beyond.

With Weed Man well established, Des and Michael focused their attention on using their knowledge to expand. They knew exactly how to run a successful franchise; it was simply a matter of developing a new brand which would excel. Watching market trends closely, they saw huge opportunity in the personal and small business waste management industry. Bin There Dump That was created, benefitting from the decades of specific customer service knowledge under their collective belts.

That Franchise Group was created to manage the six brands; a growing empire with over 750 franchise operators and annual system wide sales/revenue in excess of 200 million dollars. That Franchise Group is, more than anything else, a brain trust of franchise industry experts who apply their specific knowledge to those franchises rising under their umbrella. Today this includes Weed Man, Bin There Dump That, Christmas Décor, Downsizing Diva, Truly Nolen, and our newest Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control.

Always know that when you become a franchisee of any of our six brands, you'll be generously supported by the best franchise management in Canada. That is our promise to you.

Our years of franchise experience in Canada and the United States will be passed on to you and your team to help you to create an organization designed to maximize productivity while controlling costs.

That Franchise Group will work with you to develop a marketing plan that will give you brand recognition that will maximize your growth and margins using strategies that will give you the biggest bang for your buck.
