Every year, Entrepreneur announces a list of franchisors who started franchising within the past five years based on objective, quantifiable criteria, including financial strength and stability, growth rate and system size. Franchisors on this list do all that while helpings other start their own businesses and achieve goals. Pretty amazing, right? We thought so, too. That’s why we’re incredibly honored to be named in Entrepreneur’s 2016 Top New Franchises. There are 75 business opportunities on the list, and we’re excited to be number 28.
Growth has been quick the past three years of franchising, thanks to the simple business model and excellent franchisees. This year Mosquito Joe will be servicing 55 new territories to reach a total of 112 by year end. When we started, our vision was to make Mosquito Joe a household name across the nation and that remains the goal even as we signed a deal in our 26th state. We’re so excited to see what our franchisees are going to be doing in their communities this year, and grateful for the opportunity to step back and be proud of all the hard work thanks to Entrepreneur Magazine!
This kind of award and recognition is a big win for everyone. For those of you who are shopping for a franchise opportunity and are digging into Mosquito Joe in detail, this is great third party validation. Financial strength and stability are cornerstones of this list, as they are your list when looking at business opportunities, so hearing an organization as reputable as Entrepreneur rank us among the top new franchises based on that is gratifying. It’s also a direct reflection of the hard working franchisees in our system, and we couldn’t be more proud of them. While our growth rate and system size has been an incredible ride the past few years, we work hard to bring the right Joe into your neighborhoods to make them more enjoyable and safer places for your kids to play. This ranking is a huge honor and we couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come in 2016.
