Outdoor Living Brands Breaks the Record for the Most New Mosquito Squad Franchise Locations Ever Awarded in a Single Year
Mosquito exterminator franchise more than doubles its business locations and boasts the largest new franchise training session in its history on December 7, 2009
Richmond, VA (PRWEB) December 2, 2009 -- Mosquito Squad, America's mosquito and outdoor pest exterminator franchise, today announced that 21 new franchise locations have been awarded recently. Training for these new franchise locations will take place in Richmond, Virginia, home of Mosquito Squad's parent company, Outdoor Living Brands, Inc.
Since the initial launch of Mosquito Squad in 2005, this is the single largest group of new franchisees ever trained in one session. Earlier in 2009, Mosquito Squad was acquired by Outdoor Living Brands, whose plans include an aggressive expansion of the concept.
"With incidents of West Nile Virus and Lyme Disease increasing across the United States and around the world, and with global warming threatening to increase land encroachment with elevated water levels in our coastal areas, the threat of insect borne diseases continues to grow, making Mosquito Squad an ideal new franchise opportunity," added Chris Grandpre, President and CEO of Mosquito Squad and Outdoor Living Brands. "In addition, our affordable and effective service offerings have rapidly created strong consumer demand Mosquito Squad's services in our existing locations. We are delighted to be significantly increasing our geographic coverage and look forward to protecting thousands of additional families next year."
