DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – Terminix acquired Hometown Pest Control of Delray Beach, Florida, which also specializes in turf and ornamental work. Hometown generated $7.6 million in 2017 revenues. The deal closed April 30 and terms were not disclosed.
Owners Sal and Addie Yanello began exploring M&A opportunities recently and determined Terminix would be a good strategic fit. “They wanted us to stay as a stand-alone operation and keep everyone in place, and that was important to us,” said Sal Yanello.
Sal Yanello said there might be additional growth opportunities for Hometown employees as a result of the acquisition since Hometown specializes in lawn and ornamental work – a segment Yanello said Terminix is looking to grow.
Hometown will continue to operate under the Hometown brand; Rico and Sal Yanello are staying on board for the immediate future, while Addie Yanello is retiring to focus on the Yanello’s real estate interests.
