Become A Franchisee

Mainely Ticks Franchise Development is building a national network of Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) with an emphasis on protecting people, pets and properties from ticks and tick-borne illnesses with a personal, professional and effective tick management program centered around education and awareness. This community based approach engages stakeholders to better define and manage tick populations, with the ultimate goal of reducing the ever increasing incidences of tick-borne diseases on human and animal health.

While effective tick control and tick-bite prevention strategies exist, it is clear from the ever growing numbers of people and pets infected each year that citizen engagement levels are not commensurate with the ongoing threat. Education & awareness are Key!

Our community centered franchise model is based on the building blocks of local advocacy and service – people want to do business with a trusted, local provider – our affiliate enjoys routine double-digit growth, and commands better than 90% recurring revenue year-after-year*, with compact and efficient route densities. No need to drive long distances to generate recurring revenue and provide GREAT community-based service!

*These figures are taken from Mainely Ticks’ FDD Item 19 issued September 1, 2018. The figures are based on the performance of our affiliate, which has been in operation for 14 years. There is no assurance you will do as well. See our FDD for important assumptions and qualifiers relating to these figures.

We provide franchise discounts to:

  • Current or retired teachers with at least 5 years teaching experience
  • Honorably discharged Veterans of the US Armed Forces
  • Current landscape/lawn care service provider w/min $50,000 revenue last fiscal year
  • Similar tick and/or mosquito business w/min $50,000 revenue last fiscal year.

Ten Steps to Mainely Ticks Franchise Ownership

Franchise Opportunities

Mainely Ticks Franchise Development offers franchisees the opportunity to protect people, pets and properties with a personal, professional and effective tick management program centered around education and awareness. Our business model is holistic & community based – our kinesthetic approach leads to an awareness beyond property treatments, recognizes that as a mobile society, people travel, work and play outside of the confines of the properties that are serviced. As infected ticks expand geographically, the threat to human and companion animal health intensifies, as must our efforts to educate and service entire communities! “Our job is not to simply treat to protect your property” states Bob Maurais, President of Mainely Ticks Franchise Development, “our job is to teach to better protect your community.”

The foundation of our unique community centered franchise model is based on local advocacy and service – people want to do business with a trusted, local provider. The 14-year history of our affiliate reveals this. For 2018

  • 1,357 customers contracted for 4,199 applications.
  • The average customer (over 90% recurring year-to-year) contracted for 3 applications/year, with an average cost/treatment of $180.
  • Average 26% increase in revenue each of the last three years, 2016-2018.
  • Average 2018 Net Promotor Score of 9.776.

These figures above are taken from Mainely Ticks’ FDD Item 19 issued September 1, 2018. The figures are based on the performance of our affiliate, which has been in operation for 14 years.

  • Compact territory - Over 70% of our affiliate’s York county customer base lives within a 12 mile driving radius of the home location in Wells, Maine, which was also the site of the first educational seminar. No need to drive long distances in order to generate recurring revenue and provide GREAT service! Specializing in local - community based services!

Do you live in one of these states?

There are more ticks in more places across the United States that are carriers and transmitters of multiple disease agents. This creates a growing need for community based tick management and education to reduce the risk of contracting tick-borne diseases.

Nationwide, various tick species transmit a variety of pathogens to both people and pets. While Lyme disease gets most of the headlines, emerging disease agents continue to be discovered across the country on a yearly basis and pose an ongoing concern to entire regions and communities.
