Atlanta, GA – International pest control firm Orkin has established three new international franchises in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Belo Horizonte, Brazil; and Asuncion, Paraguay.
All three new franchises will offer commercial and residential pest control and termite services in their respective markets.
The three new franchises currently operate pest control businesses and will convert those existing businesses to Orkin’s standards.
“This will allow them to take full advantage of the Orkin brand and its franchise support to grow and further develop their markets,” the company said.
Each new franchisee traveled to Atlanta, Orkin’s global headquarters, for initial training at the company’s award-winning training center in May.
Founded in 1901, Orkin specializes in pest control services and protection against termite damage, rodents and insects through more than 400 locations.
The company currently serves approximately 1.7 million homeowners and businesses in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Central America, South America, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Asia, the Mediterranean and Africa.
Orkin, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Rollins International Inc., also collaborates with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and eight major universities to conduct research and help educate consumers and businesses on pest-related health threats.
