The past two years have been a whirlwind of planning, launching, growing, and of course making outside fun again. When we started franchising we set some high goals for ourselves because we knew this business opportunity was not only smart, but that what we do is a much-needed service in communities across the United States. Last week, we surpassed a big goal and we’re so excited to share our news with you.
When we started franchising in January of 2013, we set a goal to sell 90 territories by the end of 2014. At the time it was hard to imagine, but last week we did it. To date, we have sold 102 territories (63 of those in 2014!) and we still have 3 months left in the year! This is such a huge milestone for us in more ways than one. It makes us most proud of the franchisees we’ve recruited in these short 21 months. Mosquito Joe locations in 21 states are keeping customers safe and itch free and allowing them to take back their yards, barns, farms, gardens, little league fields, parks and even a zoo. But not only that, they’re amazing people and we’re excited to work with them each and every day. You can read all about crossing into triple digit territories here!
If you’re reading this and you’re curious about the opportunity, all I can say is start exploring. And if we’re already on your radar, act fast because our franchise fee is increasing at the end of October. But if you think mosquito control is something you can’t do, you should know you don’t need pest control experience to get started. In fact, most of our franchisees don’t have any pest control experience or even small business experience. That’s part of what’s so great about our franchise system – we provide all the training and systems for you! So think about us. We’ll be here…and growing.
