May 3, 2022

TurfBot has announced launching the first franchised robotic mowing as a service company in the U.S. The Canada-based company will be offering lawn mowing services to local homeowners using zero-emission robotic technology.

The concept provides easy access to robotic mowing by offering it as a paid service with an affordable monthly fee. Mowers remain at customers’ homes throughout the entire mowing season, and can be pre-programmed to mow on certain days and times or started on demand via a mobile app. Customers also receive monthly maintenance visits from a TurfBot technician to ensure the mower is “always in peak form.” In addition, trimming and edging can be added to any mowing program.

“We don’t do anything without rigorous testing, and we’ve been testing this concept for several years now,” said Jennifer Lemcke, CEO of TurfBot. “Our goal was to ensure our franchisees could be successful doing this – that is of the utmost importance to us. We wanted to build a sustainable model for the future.”

The company has also partnered with SiteOne Landscape Supply to assist with equipment, supplies and logistics.

“We have a 25-year history with SiteOne that started with our sister company, Weed Man Lawn Care,” said Lemcke. “It just made sense to partner with them on the TurfBot side – it really was the perfect fit. They have been instrumental in helping our franchisees get the equipment needed to launch their businesses and service their customers.”

TurfBot said it is currently available in nine U.S. markets, with plans to expand into more than 10 new markets in 2023, and more than 80 markets over the next 10 years.
