Orkin Establishes First Franchises in Africa

Rollins, Inc., a nationwide consumer services company (NYSE: ROL), announced today that the company, through its wholly owned subsidiary Orkin, has established its first two international franchises in Africa. The franchises are in the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja, Nigeria, and the Federal State of Lagos, Nigeria.

“We are pleased to expand the Orkin brand and services into Nigeria and provide customers there with high-quality pest control services,” said Tom Luczynski, Orkin vice president of U.S. and international development and franchising and technical support.

Orkin Nigeria will offer both residential and commercial pest control, focusing mainly on hotels, office buildings, food processing facilities, restaurants, hospitals and apartments.

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 Africa to complete their training.

“We are proud to partner with Orkin and bring world-class pest control services to Nigerian businesses and residents,” said Mr. Appeh Auta, managing director of operations for Orkin Nigeria.
