2013 definitely flew by for Mosquito Joe. We were very busy hosting prospective franchisees, training new franchisees, and the most exciting part – supporting the new Mosquito Joe locations as they launched their first season. As busy as we’ve been over this past year, in the middle of what we like to call “happy chaos” and growing at such a fast pace, it is easy for us to forget to take a step back and acknowledge the progress and milestones we’re making along the way.
That said, recently we ran face first into a really exciting accomplishment that made us step back and really be proud of our company’s growth and success in our first year of franchising. Mosquito Joe was featured in Entrepreneur’s 2014 Franchise 500 list, their annual ranking of America’s top franchise opportunities. That’s right, after just one year of franchising we made the list and we could not be more proud.
While we know in our hearts that this opportunity is a great one and that mosquito control is so important, to be recognized by Entrepreneur was a big moment for Mosquito Joe. Thank you to all of our customers and franchisees who make this the amazing company it is, and of course our stellar corporate team as well (we’re not above tooting our own horn).
If you’re reading this and you’re curious about the opportunity, all I can say is start exploring. 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.
