The franchise location solidifies its position among the most successful local mosquito and tick control providers in the United States.
Mosquito Shield Franchise Corporation, a leading residential mosquito and tick control service with over 50 locations across the United States, today announced that Mosquito Shield of Southeastern Pennsylvania, owned by Tina and Rick Brogan, has become the company’s first franchise location to surpass 3,000 customers.
Of this milestone, Mosquito Shield President David Briggs said, “It is a remarkable accomplishment for any local business to reach more than 3,000 paying customers. Tina and Rick have set the standard for building an excellent team, proving the value of our service, and following through on our goal of customer satisfaction. We couldn’t be any prouder to have them as owners and to have such a great team operating in Southeastern Pennsylvania.”
Mosquito Shield of Southeastern Pennsylvania was established in 2013 as one of the flagship franchises of Mosquito Shield Franchise Corporate, which until then, had been operating as a single entity out of Massachusetts.
“Residential mosquito and tick control are among of the fastest-growing home services in America,” said Mrs. Brogan. “Rick and I entered the space fairly early on when Mosquito Shield began franchising and invested in establishing a valuable local brand in and around West Chester.”
That investment has paid off, and the franchise now covers an area emanating out from West Chester to Coatesville and Philadelphia, following the Delaware River north all the way to New Hope. This year alone, Mosquito Shield of Southeastern PA has added over 1,200 new customers – and the season isn’t done.
“We are happy with how our business has grown each year,” said Mr. Brogan. “We knew when we purchased the franchise that the environmental conditions and dense population of Southeastern Pennsylvania made for a mosquito hotspot. Having grown up here, Tina and I knew there was a real need for this service, and we were right. We’re thrilled to be among the most successful local mosquito and tick control providers in the nation.”
Mosquito Shield President, David Briggs, noted that the COVID pandemic has actually benefitted his business.
“While many businesses have struggled because of stay-at-home orders, such conditions have created a booming market for our services because people are left to enjoy the summer from their own backyards, rather than on vacation or at restaurants or large gatherings,” said Mr. Briggs. “With folks investing more to make their yards leisure-time destinations, our service has increased in value. Tina and Rick are leading the pack, but this is a record growth year across the company. We’re tracking to almost double our customer base year-over-year.”
