VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. (PRWEB) JANUARY 08, 2018 – Mosquito Joe, the nation’s leading mosquito control treatment company serving residential and commercial customers, has positioned itself as an industry leader through rapid and intelligent growth since it began franchising in 2013. With 322 territories sold in 34 states, including 55 new territories sold so far in 2017, the company will have over 285 locations open in 2018 and the achievable goal of reaching 388 sold locations by the end of 2018. With the continued growth projected for 2018, Mosquito Joe is poised to extend its dominance as the largest outdoor pest prevention franchise in the nation.
“Reaching this milestone will extend and strengthen Mosquito Joe’s position as the market leader, which is vital to our future growth,” said Mosquito Joe CEO Kevin Wilson. “We became the largest provider of outdoor pest control in the country based solely on our number of units, and we plan to extend this lead in 2018. This is a true testament to all of our franchisees, and the hard work they’ve dedicated to the success of their businesses.”
As the demand for mosquito control services continues to climb due to increasing concerns of mosquito borne illnesses, awareness of the Mosquito Joe brand is becoming more prevalent. The brand is maintaining its reputation as a low-cost franchise opportunity with a total investment range between $69,600 and $122,500, and it is certainly one of the most decorated. In 2017 alone, the brand made the list of Top Franchise for Veterans by Entrepreneur, Inc. Magazine’s Fastest Growing Private Companies, was number one in category and number 26 overall on Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500, landed on Franchise Business Review’s Top Franchises in the home services category and was named Best Places to Work by both Inc. and Outside Magazine.
“Our recognition as a Best Place to Work goes to show that our employees love working at Buzz Franchise Brands and it is something that will help us continue to recruit great people to foster further growth,” said Wilson. “This ranking not only validates our organization when we reach out to qualified candidates, but drives potential franchisees to reach out to us independently because they want to join a company with a great culture.”
Since its founding in 2012, Buzz Franchise Brands has launched two successful concepts, including Mosquito Joe and Pool Scouts, with a third, Home Clean Heroes, launching its franchise offering in 2018. By keeping franchise costs and fees affordable, reporting impressive growth and offering a strong support system, the company has continued to prove its financial strength and stability in the service industry.
“We are excited to continue sharing our best practices across all platforms with the launch of Home Clean Heroes,” said Wilson. “We’re beginning to explore our fourth brand and look forward to another strong year for Buzz Franchise Brands.”
Looking ahead at 2018, Mosquito Joe is continuing to target new areas across the U.S. that could benefit from their outdoor pest controls services, with high priority states including New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado, Wisconsin, Illinois, Delaware, Utah and California.
