Franchise Business Review, a national franchise market research firm, performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction and provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual guide and special reports throughout the year which rank the top franchises in specific sectors.

Survey Details

Mosquito Joe was among 158 franchise brands, representing over 22,000 franchise owners, which participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. Of the 22,000 franchisees, approximately 2,500 are veterans. Mosquito Joe franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations and financial opportunity.

Mosquito Joe scored higher among military veteran franchisees than other brands surveyed in their overall satisfaction including areas like Franchise Community and Financial Opportunity. “We feel vets bring the right set of experiences and work ethic to our business. Veterans coming through the pipeline look at the other vets in our system, and it resonates with them. We can look veterans in the eye and say “We understand that you don’t have any experience in the private sector, but we can be a backstop for you as you make the transition,” says Brian Garrison, Chief Operating Officer of Mosquito Joe.
