Patio Patrol, the emerging full-circle pest control concept, has identified Mobile, Alabama as its next target for franchise development. With successful operations in the greater Birmingham metro, Patio Patrol is looking to add two new units in the greater Mobile area.

“Alabama has proven to be very successful for Patio Patrol because of its geography and associated climate,” explained Rachel Southard, president of emerging brands. “With franchise owners operating in the Birmingham metro, we’re now looking to expand in and around Mobile, including areas like Daphne, Fairhope and Saraland.”

The window of operations is much longer in Alabama than other states, as it remains relatively warm throughout the year and is subject to hot, humid summers. Pests thrive in this sort of weather, and ongoing pest pressure positions franchise owners well to secure repeat and subscription business.

Patio Patrol also offers a multitude of services, which allows franchise owners to secure multiple revenue streams while marketing to a common customer base. In addition to its primary services, which include mosquito, tick and flea control, Patio Patrol also works to address the root of the problem and any other consequences that may exist within the home. Through services like gutter cleaning, leaf removal and screen repair, owners can ensure their customers receive the best results and long-term solutions.

Further, with multiple Patio Patrol businesses already established across the state, new franchise owners will enjoy a level of brand awareness that is not available to owners first breaking into a new state. With this, as more businesses are opened across the state, each owner will see the benefit of their neighbors’ operations. When awareness skyrockets, franchise owners’ cost per lead decreases, meaning marketing dollars go even further.

As the brand continues to grow, it is looking to add two new territories in the state this year. With wide-open territory availability in the Mobile area, franchise owners will be able to secure their top territory pick and begin operating their business in a community that best works for them.

The total investment necessary to begin the operation of a Patio Patrol franchised business ranges from $74,545 to $169,545. For more information about franchising with Patio Patrol, visit
