ATLANTA – Orkin, Inc. has established a new international franchise in Lebanon. This franchise is Orkin’s sixth in the Middle East and the company’s 13th international franchise worldwide.

“Our expansion in the Middle East represents the growing brand recognition that Orkin continues to develop in the region,” said Tom Luczynski, Orkin vice president of international development and franchising. “We are pleased to meet the growing demand for quality pest control services worldwide.”

The franchise will focus primarily on commercial pest control, but also will offer residential and termite services. Franchise Owner Samer El Khoury recently traveled to Orkin’s headquarters and award-winning training center in Atlanta to complete the initial franchise training program. El Khoury and the other franchise co-owners and staff will participate in additional training in Lebanon.

“We are excited to partner with Orkin to provide our customers in Lebanon with the high-quality pest control services they need and deserve,” said El Khoury.
