Crenshaw Dubbed 'Entrepreneur of the Year'
Kenny D. Crenshaw, owner and president of Herbi-Systems Inc., is the Bartlett Area Chamber's latest "Entrepreneur of the Year."
The award, which is in its sixth year, recognizes someone who has contributed to the local economy and who makes a difference in the way business is conducted, according to the chamber. Crenshaw has been a chamber member since 2001 and has served in leadership roles there.
Herbi-Systems has been operating since 1984. It is now the second-largest lawn care service in greater Memphis after ServiceMaster's TruGreen. The company's billboards and other ads are well-known in the local area, with the slogan, "Lemme Kill Your Weeds" appearing with a photo of Crenshaw.
Since its inception, Herbi-Systems has grown to include 30 employees, 30 trucks, and 8,000 lawn clients.
