A Veteran’s Day Thank You

Being based out of Virginia Beach and next door to the world’s largest naval base, an air force base and a short drive to the Washington D.C. area, we are surrounded by those who are serving or have served in the military on a daily basis. A third our corporate staff are military spouses, many of our customers are veterans or active duty, and since we started franchising two years ago, we’re proud that about 20% of our franchisees are veterans.

This year for Veteran’s Day, we have even more exciting news to share. The Franchise Business Review just released their annual Veteran Report, and we were named as a top franchise for veterans. This special report features 100 franchises that were rated highest in franchisee satisfaction by military veterans who own franchises. We are incredibly honored to be featured in this list as it directly represents how our franchisees feel about their business and being part of the Mosquito Joe family.

When someone joins the military, they dedicate themselves to give back and protect the country they love. We take great pride in helping veterans find new purpose in giving back to their community by using the same skill set the military gave them to run their own business.  While defending against mosquitoes doesn’t quite compare to defending our country, we’re honored to help veterans transition not only to civilian jobs, but to going into business for themselves.  Earlier this year we were named by GI Jobs as a Hot Franchise for Veterans and several of our franchisees received great press about their business throughout the year. For example, read about Josh Lien in Austin, TX or Jeff Deiters in Fredericksburg, VA.  We couldn’t be more proud of all the veterans in the Mosquito Joe system; they’re doing amazing things in their community.

There are times when the words “Thank you” don’t seem big enough to encompass the gratitude we hold for people and their actions. Happy Veteran’s Day to all those who have served and continue to serve.

Lights, Camera, Franchise Expo!

We’ve always wanted to see our name lit up in Hollywood. Can you see it?  “Now Starring: Mosquito Joe.” Okay, so maybe that isn’t really at the top of our goals, but we are excited because Numbers Joe and Social Joe are making a big trip out west today! Maybe not to Hollywood per se, but to the West Coast Franchise Expo in Anaheim, California. If you’ll be out that way, here’s a quick recap of all the information you need about MoJo and to come see us at the show. Plus, if you contact us now (855-564-6563) we can help you get free admission to the event!

Mosquito Joe gives you a great franchise opportunity in a fast-growing industry, providing a service that benefits your community and makes you feel good about your business. We know that California is having a rough year when it comes to mosquito borne illness so with the expo taking place in Anaheim, it is especially relevant for us to educate attendees about our mosquito control franchise opportunity. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it topped the charts on West Nile cases. Owning a Mosquito Joe franchise provides the independence of running your own business, but also the satisfaction of adding a much needed service to your community.

The good news is you are doing this all with a strong foundation of guidance and support from an established corporate office. Our leadership includes over 80 years combined in franchise knowledge, marketing and operations support, and a team that is always by your side. The franchisee family we’ve created the past couple of years is a unique mix of veterans, teachers, pilots, couples, entrepreneurs, and more importantly good people. Think this is a perfect fit for you? Be sure to stop by Booth #610 at the Expo. If you just can’t wait, visit our website or contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you!

Mosquito Joe Named As Top Emerging Franchise Brand

Working for a fast-growing franchise company like Mosquito Joe, we are typically moving at warp speed in our daily work around the office, helping support our franchisees‘ businesses and bringing new franchisees into our MoJo family. With the incredible growth we’ve seen in just two years, it’s easy to forget that we haven’t been franchising much longer than that. We think Mosquito Joe is pretty awesome (we may be a bit biased) but last week we got some exciting news to show that others (including our franchisees) feel the same way.

This month we were named in Franchise Business Review’s first ever Emerging Franchises Report! Franchise Business Review describes this list as a look at the top up and coming brands in franchising, and that is something we’re hugely proud of. A huge factor in this report is franchisee satisfaction, and our scores ranked above average for the brands surveyed across the industry. If you’re interested in a franchise opportunity, this report is worth a good read. It gives a lot of great information about what to look for in an opportunity, questions to ask, and how to narrow down the huge list of options to something that suits you best. Check out the full report for charts, graphs and more helpful information.

This has been an exciting year for accolades about our franchise opportunity.  After being named among Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 in January, we were also called out as a Top New Franchise to Watch by Entrepreneur in March and highlighted by Kiplinger as one of 6 Low Cost Franchises with Great Growth Potential. This new “win” for us is particularly special we couldn’t have done with without a family of happy franchisees, which is one of our main priorities. Thank you to all our franchisees who make this brand wonderful. We’re so proud and even more excited about the places we’re going. And if you’re interested in growing with Mosquito Joe, we can’t wait to hear from you.

21 States in 21 Months

When we started franchising in January of 2013.

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 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.
