Lawn Docotor


The founders of Lawn Doctor created a strong, financially accessible business system. The management at Lawn Doctor works hard to build upon and improve the values that Lawn Doctor was started from in 1967:

  • Constant innovation that keeps our services in high demand
  • Maintaining our superior industry brand recognition
  • Support for our franchisees in every aspect of their business


Scott Frith, Chairman and CEO (CFE)

Scott Frith“I’ve been fortunate to grow up with the brand, succeeding my father as CEO following his 33 years with the company. My passion is working closely with our team and the franchise owners I have known much of my life to build a very unique organization.
Our vision is to drive significant growth by providing the best customer experience through a highly efficient franchise model that is fun to operate. This will help us fully seize on opportunities to consolidate a highly fragmented industry with less nimble competitors and favorable macro demographic trends.”

Scott leads the innovative 450+ unit franchisor of home services. Over his 17 year career with Lawn Doctor, he has held several positions in manufacturing, consumer marketing, and franchise development prior to his promotion to Chairman and CEO in 2011.

Scott is a member of the board of Project Evergreen, an industry organization with the mission of preserving green spaces. Mr. Frith is the Chairman of the International Franchise Association’s Marketing and Public Relations Committee.

He is a Certified Franchise Executive with a B.A. from Seton Hall University and a M.B.A. from Fordham University.
