Brickman Rumor

Is there any truth to the rumor that Brickman isnt going to do turf chemicals anymore and is subcontracting it all to Trugreen?

They never have done applications in Michigan anyhow. They have always subbed it out here.

Not sure if I have a brick man in my area. Anyone worked or subbed for them? Wondered if it was worth contacting them about becoming their sub? Not sure I can compete with try green prices but my results are much better. Haha

Central Indiana brickman has been doing the own stuff. Just surprised they would sub it out. Seems like we have more profit in turf chems than anything else.

Corporate offices of ea signed the deal almost a year ago. Branches can keep what they are doing but when they change, it has to be to tgcl.
