How Hollie & Lee Woodham: Success with Mosquito Joe
The husband-wife duo look to their pasts to build a successful franchise future.
Mosquito Joe provides a service that makes outside fun again for you, your family and friends! We specialize in barrier treatments that work to eliminate pesky mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks. We offer a synthetic and all natural treatment; both are kid and pet friendly! Our certified technicians walk your property, inspect for mosquito sources and problem areas, and then treat the outside areas of your property. Individual treatments last three weeks or 21 days after which, we return to repeat the process. Our licensed and trained technicians also treat standing water with larvicide to prevent further mosquito breeding.
Native Texans Lee and Hollie Woodham, met on a Southwest Airlines flight not once but twice. Together we have more than 30 years combined experience in the business world and look to use our experience to be successful Mosquito Joe owners and operators in the Northwest Dallas-Fort Worth area. Both are actively involved in the community through civic and charitable organizations. They have two children, a seven-year old son named Jackson and a ten-year old daughter named Ella. Their children are the loves of their lives and they look to make the outdoors fun again for their children and families alike in the area.
Hollie and Lee were extremely impressed with Mosquito Joe’s corporate commitment to clients and franchisees. Being in Texas, where mosquitoes run amok and West Nile, Chikungunya, and now Zika are very real fears, the Woodham’s saw their own Mosquito Joe business as a means to give back to their community in more ways than one. Hollie stated “Families are so grateful to be able to use their backyards and be outside again and we love that other entrepreneurs in the area want to help each other grow and be successful.”
Because customer service is the Woodham’s number one goal, they prioritize personal attention. The owners say “We go the extra mile and not only provide a service but take time to educate our families. We don’t use fear tactics to market our service rather we remain aware of the illnesses mosquitoes can carry and educate our communities on the importance of prevention and protection against these viruses. We want to ensure that our families get the most out of the service we are providing. Therefore we will walk the property with the homeowner to address sources that lend themselves to breeding. It is important that we work with our families to ensure the greatest results of the barrier treatment.”
In 2015 we were awarded Best of Denton County for Mosquito Control. We are honored to be a part of an elite group of businesses in the Denton County Area. We will strive to achieve the same for 2016!
