TCCG facilitates Fairway’s acquisition of Dr. Jack’s


May 23, 2024


The Clendenin Consulting Group (TCCG), based in Orlando, Fla., announced the acquisition of Orlando-based Dr. Jack’s Lawn Care, Termite and Pest Control to Fairway Lawns, based in Little Rock, Ark. Brothers and second-generation owners Rick and Jim Reinhardt plan to remain on for a short while to assist in a smooth transition for the Dr. Jack team and the customers of the company. The deak expands the Fairway presence to the Orlando/central Florida market.

Dr. Jack’s was founded in 1972 by Dr. Jack Reinhardt and his wife, Kay Reinhardt.

Greg Harbison, CEO of Fairway Lawns, stated, “Dr. Jack’s exemplifies Fairway’s values of service excellence and employee culture. Rick and Jim have grown this business consistently the right way. Even in our early conversations, we could tell Dr. Jack’s was a natural fit with Fairway.”

In a joint statement, Rick and Jim Reinhardt said, “Selling our company to Fairway puts us at peace about the future or our team and the service our customers will continue to receive.”

TCCG Founder and CEO Greg Clendenin noted that “We were very proud to advise Rick and Jim during this entire acquisition process and to be associated with this great, iconic Orlando company.”

About TCCG

Over the course of his nearly five-decade career, Greg Clendenin and his associates have overseen the acquisition and/or sale of more than $500 million worth of transactions. Clendenin began his career in the lawn and pest control in 1979. In 1982, he became the general manager and partner of Middleton Lawn & Pest Control, eventually becoming CEO and leading Middleton to become the 15th largest company in an industry comprised of approximately 20,000 companies in 2005. Clendenin led the organic growth of Middleton from five employees and $488,000  in annual revenue in 1982 to approximately 300 employees and annual revenues of $35 million in 2005. This was accomplished with no acquisitions.

After the acquisition of Middleton in 2005, Clendenin was the CEO of the public company from June 2005 until October 2007. While Middleton was a full-service pest control company, it was also considered to be the fifth-largest lawn care/spray company in the nation. From 2005 to 2007, Clendenin led the negotiations, acquisition and integration of 12 companies into the Middleton platform. From 2010-2018, he held senior level management positions including CEO of Heron Lawn and Pest Control, later rebranded as Heron Home & Outdoor. He launched TCCG in 2018.
