West Chester’s Green Lawn Fertilizing/Green Pest Solutions President Named SBA Entrepreneurial Success of the Year Award Winner
When Matt Jesson began mowing lawns, he never imagined his after-school job would become an industry-leading lawn care and pest control business earning more than $15 million in annual revenue.
Now Matt Jesson, President of Green Lawn Fertilizing/Green Pest Solutions in West Chester, has been named by the U.S. Small Business Administration as a National Small Business Week award winner.
On May 13, 2019, the SBA’s Eastern Pennsylvania District Office presented the company with the Eastern Pennsylvania Entrepreneurial Success of the Year award, selected from nominees across 40 counties in the region.
“By far, the most challenging hurdle I’ve faced has been growing from a small business to a middle-market business,” says Jesson. “Being nominated and awarded – by the very people who helped with funding the business to get there – is incredibly rewarding.”
The company was nominated by Seedcopa, a private nonprofit that helps small to mid-sized businesses obtain government loans.
