Orkin Establishes First Franchise in Ireland

International News

The franchise is Orkin's first in Ireland and the company's 15th international franchise worldwide.

| February 10, 2010

ATLANTA — Orkin has established a new international franchise in Ireland. The franchise is Orkin's first in Ireland and the company's 15th international franchise worldwide.

"Because of Ireland's temperate climate and large amount of rainfall, the country has pest issues that include rodents and a number of insects," said Tom Luczynski, Orkin vice president of international development and franchising. "We are pleased to establish a presence in Ireland and provide the country with quality pest control services to help with these pest issues."

The franchise will offer primarily commercial pest control service, along with some additional residential services, to Ireland. Donal Butterly, a prominent Dublin businessman, is the franchise owner. Orkin Ireland will begin operations in Dublin in March.

Butterly will travel to Atlanta, Orkin's U.S. headquarters, for initial training at the company's training center this month before returning to Dublin to complete his training. 

"We are pleased to open an Orkin franchise in Ireland," said Butterly. "Irish businesses and residents will benefit from the superior pest control services Orkin provides to its customers."
