Mosquito Squad Certified A World-Class Franchise By The Franchise Research Institute
LINCOLN, Neb. (January 31, 2012) – Mosquito Squad has received World-Class Franchise® certification from the Franchise Research Institute® and FranSurvey®.

The recognition comes after an independent survey conducted by the Franchise Research Institute, in which 75.6% of all Mosquito Squad franchisees participated. The survey was designed to determine the level of franchisee satisfaction within the Mosquito Squad franchise system.

“Using confidential surveys to understand franchisee opinions is vital to building a successful franchise brand,” said Jeff Johnson, founder and CEO of the Franchise Research Institute. “Mosquito Squad relied upon our unbiased, third-party research to obtain honest feedback from their franchisees, in order to help maximize franchisee sales and profitability.

The survey asked Mosquito Squad franchise owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions in categories such as overall growth potential, quality, support and communication.

Among the responses received from Mosquito Squad franchisees:

97% gave a positive grade to initial training.

91% gave a positive grade to overall quality.

91% of franchisees would recommend this franchise.

95% gave a positive grade to their franchise business compared to the local competition.

“High scores from franchisees, when obtained confidentially, are evidence that a franchisor consistently meets or exceeds expectations. Mosquito Squad understands this concept and they work diligently to improve services they provide to their franchisees,” said Johnson.”

“Our corporate team is extremely dedicated to coaching and mentoring our franchisees as they build their local businesses to pursue their personal career, lifestyle, wealth and income goals,” said Christopher Grandpre, Chairman and CEO of Outdoor Living Brands. “We look forward to a successful year for all Mosquito Squad franchisees and to continuing to support the brand’s rapid growth across the country. Most importantly, we look forward to working to ensure our clients can enjoy an outdoor living lifestyle – pest and disease free.”
