FORMER CRITTER CONTROL FRANCHISEES HAVE THIS TO SAY...
“I owned a Critter Control Franchise in Michigan for 12 years and it allowed me to earn, save and invest enough money to meet my goal of retiring at the age of 50. I learned that I could run a successful business with hard work and by providing excellent customer service, while doing something that I thoroughly enjoyed.”
- Rick Stanley (formerly CC of Ann Arbor, MI/retired)
“I was a franchisee for 12 years before selling the business and becoming a corporate employee. My association with Critter Control has always allowed me to make a comfortable living doing something I really enjoy while adding value to the lives of our customers, employees and their families.”
- Mike Dwyer (formerly CC of Columbus, OH /retired)
