Franchises & Acquisitions
Pictured above with Tom Luczynski, Orkin group vice president of international development and franchising, is Abdel Naser Rahhal, winner of the 2009 International Franchise Award. Orkin has six international franchises in the Middle East.
Orkin’s franchise program, launched in 1995, is run by Orkin’s franchise team. The company now has 57 franchised locations in the U.S. and 22 international franchised locations. Orkin’s unique franchise contract includes a buyback provision, which allows Orkin to purchase franchise locations that hit certain milestones.
Much of Orkin’s growth has come through acquisitions. Orkin’s acquisition program allows pest control company owners to become valued members of the Orkin or Rollins teams, and Orkin oftentimes retains the employees of the acquired company, offering benefits and opportunities for promotion.
