Mosquito Squad Recognized for Fast Growth
Aug 27, 2015
Mosquito Squad has been recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies by Inc. Magazine on its 34th annual 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
This is the fifth consecutive year The Squad was ranked on the list, joining an elite group of just 14 privately held firms that have sustained remarkable growth over five years.
The Squad, which has a three-year sales growth of 198% and a number 1,980 ranking, specializes in eliminating mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces. The company operates more than 180 locations in 32 states and the District of Columbia, and in 2015 it opened new service areas in Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Texas, Virginia and Wisconsin.
“This has been quite a year for The Squad. From opening more than 30 new offices to working with TV host and yard expert Jason Cameron as our brand ambassador, our franchisees and corporate team members have been singularly focused on meeting our clients’ needs,” said Chris Grandpre, chairman and CEO of Outdoor Living Brands, parent company and franchisor of Mosquito Squad. “Our growth is reflective of their combined commitment, and this award belongs to each and every team member who serves our clients.”
Said Scott Zide, COO of Outdoor Living Brands and president of Mosquito Squad, “Since our launch nearly 10 years ago, we have exponentially grown the residential mosquito and tick control category. We’ve seen phenomenal growth as consumers become more familiar with the benefits of our service, and the rapid spread of West Nile virus, Lyme disease and new vector-borne illnesses.”
