Orkin grants Costa Rican franchise

US pest control franchise Orkin has established a franchise in Costa Rica. Owened by consumer services group Rollins, Inc., Orkin began franchising in 1994 and launched its first international franchise in Mexico in 2000.

"We are most pleased to announce our third international franchise," says Rollins, Inc. President and CEO Gary W. Rollins. "Our agreement to establish a franchise in Costa Rica further indicates the value and recognition of our Orkin brand beyond North America. We will continue to strategically add to the Orkin franchise programme internationally and in the secondary US markets as we accelerate our business."
