TUCSON, Ariz. – Truly Nolen Pest Control recently opened a new franchise at 444 West Drive, Phillips, Nebraska. The franchise, which is the first Tri-City (Neb.) location for Truly Nolen, is owned by Randy Watson.
Watson is a lifelong Phillips resident and graduated Aurora High in 1980. Prior to his first franchise experience, he and his brother owned and operated Winchester’s Restaurant in Phillips for several years.
Watson has franchising experience dating back to 2005, as he previously owned a Scotts Lawn Service and serviced the Tri-City area. He ran this franchise for 11 years before being purchased by TruGreen. Prior to being his own boss, Watson spent five years as a market sales specialist helping small businesses and large industrial customers dispose of regulated and non-regulated waste streams.
“After selling my business, I researched several franchise opportunities looking for an organization that had the same business values and commitment to their customers as I do,” Watson said. “Truly Nolen is who I found and I am extremely excited about serving my community’s pest control needs.”
Greg Bohne, Truly Nolen vice president, domestic franchising, said Watson went through training recently at the company’s Leadership Center in Tucson, Ariz. and is pleased to have him as part of the company’s family.
“Randy is very passionate about everything he does both in and out of our industry,” said Bohne. “His previous lawn care experience and franchising success should help him have endless possibilities in the Tri-City area.”
