Leading outdoor pest control service franchise expands with more than 20 additional territories to serve new communities

Since launching its franchise opportunity four years ago, Mosquito Joe has grown rapidly to provide exceptional pest control services across the country. By protecting families from fleas, ticks and mosquitoes through its unique services, the brand is actively making outside fun again. With a corporate team that has more than tripled between 2012 and 2016 from six employees to nearly 30 in order to support a growing system of 129 franchisees, Mosquito Joe has risen in the ranks as one of the top providers in the pest control industry.

It’s position at the forefront of an increasingly popular industry is especially evident as the “busy seasons” heats up. That means local communities across 32 states will soon see Mosquito Joe’s signature yellow and green vans in their communities, succeeding in making the spring and summer months free from pests such as mosquitoes, fleas and ticks. This year, the brand is initiating services in previously untapped states like Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Iowa while continuing to build a strong presence in established states like Texas, Georgia, and the Carolinas.

“The growth that we have seen in the past few years is a testament to the strong team that we have built and the operators who are creating a positive reputation for our unmatched services,” said Mosquito Joe CEO Kevin Wilson. “With 270 trucks on the road to service our growing base of more than 65,000 customers, we look forward to seeing success with the new operators launching this spring.”

As the demand for mosquito control services continues to climb due to persisting concerns of mosquito borne illnesses, awareness of the Mosquito Joe brand is becoming more prevalent. The brand is maintaining its reputation as an excellent and low cost franchise opportunity with a total investment range between $69,600 and $122,500. Mosquito Joe also participates in VetFran, offering an even more affordable and valuable opportunity for veterans. That’s made evident by the 17 percent representation of veterans in Mosquito Joe’s growing franchise system.

“Our flexible, recurring revenue business model allows us to attract entrepreneurial minded operators who are looking for an option outside of a brick and mortar business that they can run seasonally,” Wilson said. “Not only is the mosquito control industry booming, providing a faster ROI after a low initial investment, but our operators can also feel good about the work that they’re doing for the communities that they serve.”

In fact, Mosquito Joe was recently ranked number one in category and number 26 overall on Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500 list, as well as ranking as one of the Fastest Growing Franchises, Top Low-Cost Franchises and Top New Franchises by the publication. Additionally, the brand earned accolades from Inc., Franchise Business Review and Franchise Gator. It’s no surprise that the future is looking bright for the brand’s existing franchisees as well as the operators launching service for the first time this season.

In addition to the 20-plus new franchisees launching operations this spring, Mosquito Joe continues to target new areas across the U.S. that could benefit from their outdoor pest control services. High priority target states include New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Colorado, Wisconsin, Illinois, Mississippi, California and Utah.

“Now more than ever, it’s clear that there is a need for the quality of life improvements that our services provide in cities across the country,” Wilson said. “We are confident that our new operators are equipped to successfully tackle the extra buggy spring and summer months in new markets and that our seasoned operators will continue to serve as a trusted partner in their local communities.”
