Orkin Establishes Three International Franchises in South America

ATLANTA - June 19, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Rollins Inc., an international consumer services company (NYSE: ROL), announced today that the company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Orkin, established three new international franchises in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Belo Horizonte, Brazil; and Asuncion, Paraguay.

All three Orkin franchises will offer commercial and residential pest control and termite services in their respective markets.

"We are proud to offer Orkin's services in South America," said Tom Luczynski, Orkin group vice president of global development and franchising. "This is a great opportunity for Orkin to expand our footprint and bring our services to Brazil and Paraguay."

The three new franchises currently operate pest control businesses and will convert those existing businesses to Orkin. This will allow them to take full advantage of the strong Orkin brand and its franchise support to grow and further develop their markets.

Each new franchisee traveled to Atlanta, Orkin's world headquarters, for initial training at the company's award-winning training center in May.
