Mosquito Squad – the mosquito exterminator – receives
“World-Class Franchise” designation after research survey
RICHMOND, VA – March 31, 2010 – Mosquito Squad, the mosquito exterminator, was named a
“World-Class Franchise” after a recent franchise system survey by the Franchise Research
Institute and FranSurvey.
“We asked the Franchise Research Institute to survey our Mosquito Squad franchisees to
identify ways to improve the franchise system and our support of their efforts to grow their local
franchise businesses,” says Chris Grandpre, President and CEO of Mosquito Squad’s parent
company, Outdoor Living Brands. “We are extremely pleased and proud of the results.”
Adds Jeff Johnson, President of the Franchise Research Institute: “We rarely see results this
strong. Mosquito Squad is at the top of the list of the franchise systems we survey!”
The survey asked owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions regarding overall
growth potential, quality, support, communication and more. On all questions, 88% - 100% of
franchisees rated Mosquito Squad in the positive categories. “We’re very pleased to see that our
franchise owners are very happy with their decision to invest in a Mosquito Squad franchise and
their constant collaboration with the corporate office and peers in the system. We are especially
proud that 100% of the franchisees surveyed, which included over 85% of the franchisees in the
system, would recommend Mosquito Squad to a prospective franchisee and 100% agreed that
the franchisor understands that if franchisees are successful, it will lead to our success as the
franchisor,” adds Grandpre.
The Franchise Research Institute designates a select few franchises with its World-Class
Franchise based on the responses to several of its survey questions.
