Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Cookman, a Georgia native, huge Bulldogs fan and new Mosquito Joe franchisee in Macon, GA.
Meet Chris Cookman of Mosquito Joe of Macon, GA
Chris found Mosquito Joe when he was hunting for a business that he and his family could grow together. He was actually looking into the home inspection business when he stumbled upon Mosquito Joe. Intrigued by the brand mission and identity, Chris dug deeper. Considering the local area’s need for mosquito control services, Chris liked the idea of providing a service that could contribute to better health and outdoor enjoyment in the community.
Family Man and Navy Veteran
Chris served in the Navy from 1990-1994 as an F18 plane captain before taking a job at Freudenberg, a German textile company based out of Macon, GA. He is familiar with working hard and finished his college degree while working full-time and simultaneously raising a family.
While new to the pest control industry, Chris wanted to create a legacy business for his three children: his daughter, age 20 and two boys, ages 14 and 12. His daughter, Crislynn, will be serving as the office manager whilst studying to become a special education teacher. His youngest son is autistic and Chris wanted him to have a future he could be proud of. With his new business, Mosquito Joe of Macon, Chris is now able to offer him job security and the opportunity to rise to the challenge and succeed in life. Chris’s wife will be also involved in the operation as well as the entire family works together to serve their community and grow their business.
“There is a need for my services as there are inquiries all the time,” says Chris, “It provides for better health in the community. I want to be involved in the baseball park and sponsor the sports teams in town. I also want to get involved with the fire and police department.”
This is the first Mosquito Joe location in Georgia and Cookman’s ultimate goal is to take over the entire state of Georgia. We’re so excited for Chris and the entire Cookman family and look forward to watching them grow in the Mosquito Joe family!
