Why Mosquito Joe is a great franchise opportunity for women.
Have you always dreamed of being your own boss? Are you itching for something different? Are you yearning to be more fulfilled? Mosquito Joe is the franchise business opportunity for you.
If there is one thing we have learned it is that there are many misconceptions about women in the pest control industry! We have some incredible women that are a part of the Mosquito Joe family. It is simply not a man’s world, ladies, and we want you to join us!
(Just a Few) Reasons Why It’s Awesome to be a Female Mosquito Joe Franchisee:
- Flexibility: One thing our franchisees agree on is that this is a highly flexible business model. “Well for starters, you are your own boss. You have down time during the year, which is great for spending time with the kids. For myself, I love showing my kids what it means to own your own business. It’s wonderful to set the example of hard work and the rewards you reap from that hard work. It is a great lesson,” says Kate (Kimpton) Gould of Northwest Houston.
- It’s not a “dirty” business: The way Mosquito Joe markets itself, from our technicians to our van, there is nothing dirty about the industry. And we are solving a true need with our service. “I don’t think of this field as ‘dirty.’ I find it exciting to be able to help other moms in my community to be able to enjoy their summers outside with their families,” states Stephanie Simon of Arkansas.
- No business or pest control experience required: You don’t need to be a bug expert, be well-versed on the Zika virus or have ever owned your own business before to join our franchise family. We’ll teach you what you need to know! Marla Carruth of Baton Rouge notes, “Being in the pest-control industry is about learning as you would anything else. As a teacher, I was trained to begin with the end in mind. It’s the same in the pest-control industry, or any other industry for that matter. Learn all you can and work toward pleasing your customers. We as women do not have to fit into one type of box.” Mosquito Joe offers a comprehensive training program that you will attend before you open. The training is given on a monthly basis, so after your first required session, you can choose to come back for as many refreshers as needed.
- You’re not alone: This is a franchise! We are here to support you. From marketing to training to operations, Mosquito Joe has your back 100%. You will be paired with an FBC, Franchise Business Coach, dedicated to helping you set up your business (acquiring state license, systems overviews, etc.). Your FBC will be in regular contact with you, not only at the beginning of your business launch, but as an ongoing resource for any questions you may need answered. And as you can see, you will not be alone as a female franchisee. Tiffany Farmer of New Orleans says, “I chose Mosquito Joe because it didn’t feel like just another franchise, it felt like a family. To me, family is the most important thing so why not work with family and make a living? It’s really fun for us and was definitely the right choice.”
