Mosquito Squad welcomes their 35th new franchisee of the year with the recent addition of retired U.S veteran Thomas and Leslie Wilson.
In honor of World Mosquito Day, the team behind the #1 Pest Control franchise, Mosquito Squad announced today the recent closure of their 35th deal of 2015. Leslie and Thomas Wilson are the latest couple to join Mosquito Squad. Thomas and his wife Leslie first learned about Mosquito Squad while working with a FranNet business broker, Barney Greenbaum.
Leslie Wilson has a wide array of skills and attributes that she brings to the table having served in many different roles over the past few years due to the nature of being a military wife. Leslie has supported her husband Thomas’s career in the U.S. military since they married. Recently retired, Thomas is thrilled to help Leslie achieve her dream of business ownership as the couple looks forward to opening their Mosquito Squad location in Northwest Columbus in the Spring of 2016.
The couple attended Confirmation Day at Outdoor Living Brands headquarters in Richmond, Virginia the same day Inc. Magazine announced their 2015 Inc. 5000 list. For the fifth consecutive year Mosquito Squad was designated as one of America’s fastest growing companies and the pair is thrilled to become the newest additions to “The Squad”.
Tricia Charles, Franchise Recruitment Consultant with Outdoor Living Brands stated “Mosquito Squad is having a tremendous year. We have seen record growth in the past few years both corporately and at the franchisee level. This year alone we have been honored by Inc. Magazine and Entrepreneur who had named Mosquito Squad as the #1 pest control franchise in their best of the best issue. Leslie and Thomas will make wonderful franchisees and clients living in their area will benefit from the services they will provide in the coming year.”
