While Mosquito Squad protects families from the nuisance of mosquitoes, we understand that for many around the world the mosquito bite can be deadly. The most prevalent mosquito-borne disease is Malaria. Over 250 million Africans contract this preventable and treatable disease each year, resulting in over 1,000 deaths each day.
6 years ago The Squad started combatting Malaria through our partnership with Malaria No More, a global nonprofit organization with the goal of ending Malaria. While that goal may seem lofty, keep in mind malaria was eradicated from the United States just 50 years ago.
Our franchisees and corporate staff have warmly embraced our relationship with Malaria No More. Through donations The Squad has raised well over $250,000 to help stop Malaria. And we’re not just sending money. Chris Grandpre, CEO of Mosquito Squad’s parent company Outdoor Living Brands, and franchisees have traveled to Africa with Malaria No More to see first-hand the difference that we’re making through educational programs, protective bed nets and malaria tests and treatment.
While we’re passionate about the fight against Malaria, we also know that it’s important to today’s consumers that companies give back. According to a Cone Cause Evolution Survey, 87% of consumers say they would switch service providers if the brand was associated with a good cause (if price and quality of service remained the same).
Having a whole network of family of other people in business that are other franchisees and also having the great network of people at home base is huge to the business
The support has been great... support from other franchisees was awesome. They put me in touch with some of the more seasoned franchisees and they were very welcoming and allowed me to come visit them. I would say the support has been outstanding.
We love the idea of being our own bosses and growing a business that would give back to our community and allow us the flexibility to be with our young children
