Independent Survey Shows Franchise Owners Are Highly Satisfied with Mosquito Joe’s Performance
Back to Mosquito Joe

Virginia Beach, VA, October 27, 2016 – Mosquito Joe was recently named a top franchise by
Franchise Business Review in its 2016 Top Franchises for Veterans Report.
Mosquito Joe provides mosquito control services to residential and commercial customers,
repelling and eliminating outdoor pests such as mosquitoes, ticks and fleas. Mosquito Joe
began as a mom-and-pop mosquito control business in 2010, and in just a few short years of
franchising, has grown to become an industry leader with over 168 franchise locations open
Franchise Business Review, a national franchise market research firm that performs
independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings of franchises based
solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes
its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in
special reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.
Mosquito Joe was among 158 franchise brands, representing over 22,000 franchise owners,
that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. Of the 22,000 franchisees,
approximately 2,500 are veterans. Mosquito Joe franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark
questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise
systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial
Mosquito Joe scored higher among military veteran franchisees than other brands surveyed in
their overall satisfaction including areas like Franchise Community and Financial Opportunity.
"We feel vets bring the right set of experiences and work ethic to our business. Veterans coming
through the pipeline look at the other vets in our system, and it resonates with them. We can
look veterans in the eye and say "We understand that you don't have any experience in the
private sector, but we can be a backstop for you as you make the transition," says Brian
Garrison, Chief Operating Officer of Mosquito Joe.
“Many franchisors are recruiting veterans because they realize that military experience, in
addition to fostering traits including integrity, honor, and commitment, imparts many skills that
successful franchise owners have,” says Eric Stites, who is CEO of Franchise Business Review
and was a First Class Petty Officer with the US Navy. “Since the number of franchise options
can be overwhelming, it’s important to look closely at what veterans who are in franchising say
about their experience.”
Key findings from research on veterans’ satisfaction with their franchise:
• 89% enjoy operating their business
• 86% enjoy being part of their franchise
• 82% respect their franchisor
• 82% believe their franchisor acts with a high level of integrity
• 81% are satisfied with their franchise overall
• 74% would “do it again” knowing what they know today
• 83% are satisfied with their franchisor and the opportunity provided
• 77% would recommend their franchise brand to others
