Although mosquito season for our franchise owners depends on where they are located in the United States, all franchise owners have an offseason when things cool down again. The length of the offseason can vary based on location, but many of our franchise owners enjoy the seasonal operation model of mosquito control services.
Our owners are able to work through the seasonal push of mosquito and tick control services when warmer weather rolls around, then enjoy the slow time during the offseason. This provides the flexibility you can’t get from a traditional job. This is viewed by franchisees as one of the perks of owning an outdoor pest control company.
With downtime at the end of the season: How do our franchise owners spend their offseason?
1. PREPPING FOR NEXT SEASON
During this downtime, things don’t simply stop. While things are a bit slower after mosquito season officially ends and before it begins, working on your business never ends. This gives our franchise owners just enough time to prepare for next season and attend to a wide variety of business tasks.
Some of the things our franchise owners work on during their offseason include:
- Marketing plan
- Pre-season pest control
Best part? When you work with Mosquito Squad, you’ll have unbeatable access to a team of experts who know how to add value to your company and market it the right way. With unlimited access to an ever-expanding catalog of online training and tools, you can even spend this time growing your business-related skills.
2. REFLECT ON PAST SEASON
For many business owners across the world, the slow season is a time for self-reflection. Doing so provides you a chance to uncover the areas of your business that need to be improved. While Mosquito Squad offers you proven models of success, we believe there’s always room to improve and grow in your community.
Some reflections you can consider include:
- What were my troubles last season?
- How have my competitors been doing it differently?
- Are my customers happy with the services I provide?
The answer to these questions can help guide your reflection, as well as provide you useful insight into what you can do differently. At Mosquito Squad, we want you to be as successful as you want to be and offer the guidance and professional assistance needed to help you and your team achieve any of your personal or business goals!
3. SPEND IT THE WAY THEY WANT
Just like teachers benefit from the summer vacation, pest control company owners benefit from the offseason. This slow time provides our franchise owners the chance to take off and reap the rewards of owning and operating their own business.
Ultimately, this time is for you to do with as you see fit. It’s very common for Mosquito Squad franchise owners to spend this time taking vacations, spending time with friends and family, as well as recharging before the next mosquito season. Whatever way you spend it, you can rest assured that you’ll have access to revenue and continued leads due to customers seeking pre-season control services, in the winter or early spring.
