CORONA, Calif. — Terminix announced the acquisition of Corona, Calif.-based Team Too Termite & Pest Control. The acquisition, which closed on April 7, was an asset deal, which includes the company’s customer base, some inventory and intellectual property.
Team Too was founded in 1978 by Bill Houtchens and was currently operated under the leadership of his son, Team Too President Will Houtchens. Team Too has five offices throughout California and specializes in commercial and multi-family accounts.
“Team Too is a strong commercial business with great customer retention. They have a well-trained and well-respected team of employees that will be a great part of the Terminix team,” said Jason Bailey, vice president, Mergers and Acquisitions, Terminix International.
A Terminix spokesperson said the company will retain almost all Team Too employees, and that Terminix will integrate the vast majority of Team Too routes/employees into three of its commercial branches in the Los Angeles, San Jose and Sacramento metropolitan areas.
As is typical with most Terminix acquisitions, it’s expected that Team Too will transition to the Terminix brand in the coming months.
