Mosquito Joe Franchise

A Mosquito Joe franchise ownership is about more than owning your own business. Mosquito Joe empowers franchisees to realize their personal and professional goals while making outside fun again for their communities, building relationships that last to the mutual benefit of everyone. Eliminating the nuisance and annoyance of fleas, ticks, and mosquitos is good for the entire community, and great for franchise owners because it improves their quality of life thanks to the ability to shut down for the winter offseason, making more time for family, vacations, and more — or to use that time to focus on marketing efforts geared toward business growth during the following season.

To buy a franchise with Mosquito Joe, you'll need to have at least $50,000 in liquid capital and a minimum net worth of $250,000. Mosquito Joe charges a franchise fee of $35,000. They also offer a discount for veterans.

Values & History

Winner of numerous prestigious awards for service excellence and franchisee support, Mosquito Joe was founded in 2010. Opening up franchise opportunities three years later was a natural progression due to the wild success of the business and increased demand for mosquito control services. The brand's dedication to low-risk pest management techniques has helped it to become embraced by the Pest Environmental Stewardship Program established by the Environmental Protection Agency, and today there are over 350 franchise locations operating across North America, with more opening each year.

Industry Performance

Total US revenue in the pest control industry reached $16 billion in 2019, with the number of businesses in operation jumping to 27,410. Annual growth averaged 4.3% from 2014 to 2019, with employment in the industry reaching 134, 291. The market size of the pest control industry within the US increased faster than the economy overall in 2019, with an average annual market size growth of 0.1% expected.

Training & Support

Each new franchisee receives rigorous training and access to a variety of additional support utilities and services to ensure continued success as they develop their business. Our training program takes place at Mosquito Joe Headquarters in Virginia Beach, VA at our very own MoJo University. Operation of all equipment and products, regulatory compliance measures, marketing strategies, and business operations and management are all covered. Additional marketing support through promotional materials and customized local campaigns along with a dedicated call center allow franchise owners to focus on the growth and administration aspects of their business.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

Prospective franchise owners should be energetic, driven to succeed, and open to new ideas and learning new things, with strong business acumen. Ideal candidates will enjoy working with and managing others. Solid communication and leadership skills are ideal.
