At the young ages of 19 and 21, business co-owners Kyle Rossi and Michael White chose to invest in a Weed Man franchise because of their entrepreneurial/business backgrounds and desire to work in the green industry.
Under Weed Man USA Franchise Development Consultant Pete Rossi’s guidance, son, Kyle and long-time friend, Michael officially opened Weed Man Chattanooga on Jan. 1.
In college, Mr. White studied Business Management/Entrepreneurship and worked as an applicator and salesman for a reputable lawn care company in the Denver area. Likewise, Mr. Rossi studied Business Administration/Marketing and also worked for several summers as a landscape crew leader for a local MI contractor and as an applicator for the Weed Man in Farmington Hills, MI.
When the opportunity came to open a Weed Man in Chattanooga, Mr. Rossi and Mr. White jumped at the chance. They have both always hoped to move to Tennessee someday, and Chattanooga exceeded their expectations, providing them with a great area to start a business, as well as settle into a community that they could call home.
Pete Rossi will be overseeing the management of the new Weed Man Chattanooga location. A graduate of Taylor University, Upland, In., he has extensive experience opening and running small businesses, and has been a small business consultant for several years.
Weed Man USA, North America’s No. 1 franchised lawn care provider, is a network of locally-owned and operated lawn care businesses providing environmentally responsible fertilization, weed control and integrated pest management services.
