Rollins, Inc., a nationwide consumer services company, announced recently that it has established a new international franchise in Jamaica through its wholly-owned subsidiary Orkin. According to the information provided, this franchise is Orkin’s first in Jamaica and the company’s 14th international franchise worldwide.
“Tropical climates and the related pest pressures create an increased need for quality pest control services,” said Tom Luczynski, Orkin vice president of international development and franchising. “We are pleased to increase our growing international presence and meet the pest control needs of customers in Jamaica.”
The franchise will offer both residential and commercial pest control and termite services to the entire island of Jamaica.

Franchise employees will travel to Atlanta, Orkin’s U.S. headquarters, for initial training at the Company’s training center before returning to Jamaica to complete their training.
