Q&A with Lice Franchisee Lisa Mills

Why did you become a franchisee?
I was looking for a change and was tired of working for someone else. I knew I didn’t want just another job. I wanted to be able to hire others to do the service work so that I could spend my time growing the business. I chose a franchise because I wasn’t looking for the high risks and challenges involved in building a business from scratch and I wanted to be a part of a proven system.

How did you choose your franchise?
A personal experience introduced me to Lice My kids had head lice so I learned firsthand how frustrating it is and Lice Squad took away the stress and the lice! I also found the facts and resources I needed when I used Lice’s services. This experience inspired me to purchase a Lice franchise. I saw it as a chance to help people save wasted time and money while giving me personal and financial rewards. I was earning from day one!

What do you enjoy most about being a franchisee?
I love the freedom and flexibility. I enjoy the variety of work, the challenges and freedom to work how, when, where, and the way I want as well as the independence of being in business for myself but not by myself. Lice’s support team is always available to assist me.

In what ways do you support or get involved in your local community? Why is this important to you?
I get involved in my community through 100 Women Who Care. This is a group of great women doing even greater good for our local community by coming together to donate money where 100% goes directly to a local charity of their choice. On September 17th we also celebrate Head Lice Awareness Day. We donate 100% of our service revenue for that day to the Children’s Aid Foundation. This is a win/win as we are exercising Lice Squad’s vision to dispel the stigma associated with lice and supporting an organization that helps the most vulnerable of those in our community, our children. Getting involved in the community is important to me because everyone benefits when we donate our time and/or money to make a stronger, happier and healthier community.
