WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A FRANCHISEE?
A Mosquito Hunters franchisee must want more than just another way to make money.
“We believe our business exists to build relationships with our clients and with each other. When we provide support, these relationships grow. With extraordinary relationships, we believe that client loyalty, brand integrity, profitability, and professionalism are inherent.”
– from Mosquito Hunters Mission Statement
In other words, build relationships with your clients, your employees, and your community and the money and success will come naturally. We believe this at our core and we want to find those franchisees that share these values with us.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR A FRANCHISE OWNER?
We recommend franchisee owner-operators significantly invest time in building relationships with clients, employees, vendors, and the local community – particularly the local community of other business owners. Our model also can work for semi-absentee owners, in which case a manager would be hired to handle these duties.
Start the day by meeting with Technicians and stocking their vehicle inventory with mosquito control products, paperwork, and other supplies. From there, on a typical day, the franchisee will spend the rest of the workday scheduling treatments using our software, responding to phone calls and emails from existing clients, and interacting with Mosquito Hunters’ turnkey sales team, which fields inbound calls from prospective clients and closes sales over the phone, allowing for a consistent client experience and freeing up our franchisees to focus on business operations, which is integral to securing a repeat client base.
As the day is wrapping up, a franchisee might attend a local networking event (Chamber of Commerce, BNI, etc.) where he/she will have the opportunity to engage with the local community and build more business with Mosquito Hunters.
