Orkin Establishes First Franchise in Jamaica

The franchise will offer both residential and commercial pest control and termite services to the entire island of Jamaica.

| January 26, 2010

ATLANTA – Rollins, Inc., announced that the company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Orkin, has established a new international franchise in Jamaica. This franchise is Orkin’s first in Jamaica and the company’s 14th international franchise worldwide.

“Tropical climates and the related pest pressures create an increased need for quality pest control services,” said Tom Luczynski, Orkin vice president of international development and franchising. “We are pleased to increase our growing international presence and meet the pest control needs of customers in Jamaica.”

The franchise will offer both residential and commercial pest control and termite services to the entire island of Jamaica. Kenneth Benjamin, a prominent Jamaican businessman, is the franchise owner through his company, Guardsman Services Limited.

Franchise employees will travel to Atlanta, Orkin’s U.S. headquarters, for initial training at the Company’s award-winning training center before returning to Jamaica to complete their training. 

“We are excited to partner with Orkin and become the first Orkin franchise in Jamaica,” said Benjamin. “The entire island will benefit from the Company’s high-quality pest control services.”
