MissQuito, a women-led mosquito control service, announced the launch of its franchise program to expand the brand across the nation.
MissQuito currently operates throughout the greater Atlanta, Ga., area and is looking to grow nationally throughout the next year.
Per the company’s news release, the franchise program is an “exciting opportunity to grow a women-led business in the pest control industry, which sees 95 percent of its workforce made up of males.”
The brand is poised for expansive growth thanks to its “strong unit-level economics and best-in-class leadership,” according to the news release.
“In a predominately male-dominated industry we wanted to disrupt the world of mosquito control by making our own unique impact,” said Natasha Oldham, general manager of MissQuito. “As one of the very few fully women-led and -operated mosquito control companies in the U.S., we’re committed to empowering women to grow and be entrepreneurs while also providing top-of-the-line services to the communities we live in.”
MissQuito is currently seeking experienced single and multi-unit operators who are community-minded, to become a part of the emerging brand and develop franchise territories in new markets.
Founded in 2020, MissQuito describes itself as comprised of “a passionate group of women leaders offering environmentally conscious mosquito control services that are flexible, effective, caring and created for ease.”
“With an ethos centered around relationship building and female entrepreneurship, MissQuito is working to create a lasting legacy in the mosquito control industry. MissQuito’s trained and licensed specialists offer safe and sustainable mosquito solutions that are tough on mosquitoes and gentle on the environment.”
