Truly Nolen Pest Control was named one of Franchise Business Review’s (FBR’s) 2020 Top 200 Franchise Opportunities. This marks the 22nd time Truly Nolen has been named to a “Best of the Best” list since 2006, according to a statement from the company.

FBR is the leading national franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction and franchise buyer experiences.

“Being a local, family-owned company affords us instant familiarity when doing business,” said Chris Mehalic, Charlotte, N.C.-based Truly Nolen franchisee. “When that is enhanced by the support, reputation and history brought by the corporate team, our customers truly get a best-in-class experience.”

This recognition from FBR comes right before Truly Nolen’s annual franchise meeting Feb. 18-20 in Orlando, Fla.

“With our company’s annual franchise meeting this month, we know the level of support and sharing we will have with fellow franchisees will help reinforce many of the reasons why we chose to become a Truly Nolen franchisee in the first place,” Mehalic said, who owns his franchise with his wife Kelli. “The company’s core values match our own and we strive every day to add value to the lives we touch.”

Lance Washington, director, domestic franchising at Truly Nolen, said he was excited about the company making the list. “We are honored to be recognized on this diverse list of franchise opportunities,” he said. “We believe our franchisees receive tremendous value when they become part of our team.”

Truly Nolen Franchise Opportunities has also made multiple appearances in the Guide to Today’s Top Franchises and Top Franchises for Veterans.
