 ATLANTA (December 11, 2019)- Critter Control announced today that it is on track for 10 new franchise locations in 2019, which is the largest franchise growth for the company since 2007.

Critter Control welcomed locations in College Station, Texas; Waco, Texas; Athens, Ga.; Macon, Ga.; Columbus, Ga.; Lakeland, Fla.; Central Mississippi; Eastern Tennessee; Terre Haute, Ind. and Green Bay, Wis. in 2019. This brings the franchise system’s total footprint to 84 locations nationwide, with a busy December still ahead.

“The opportunity to provide wildlife service to new markets is exciting,” said Jeff Campbell, Critter Control’s vice president. “As the largest nuisance wildlife company in the country, the addition of these markets only strengthens our brand and the services we can offer our great customers.”

With Critter Control continuing to expand, its business model and emphasis on franchise owner success will continue attracting like-minded professionals looking to invest. “The addition of these markets should reassure our franchise family of our commitment to the Critter Control brand,” said Campbell.
