Meet Our Team

Patrice Rice, CEO and Founder

Patrice Rice has an entrepreneurial background with a history of building successful businesses. Her entrepreneurial career started when she opened Chesapeake Cruising, the first fleet of powerboats for charter on the Chesapeake Bay. She became the first woman Captain on the Chesapeake and launched the industry of corporate entertaining on luxury yachts in the Baltimore Inner Harbor. Patrice then purchased and operated a marina restaurant from where she further developed a catering service specializing in the yachting industry.

She successfully ran a hospitality recruiting agency, from her home, for 20 years before she started franchising. Also, during that same time, she owned a Pet Store for 10 years.

Another feather in the cap for Patrice to open a business in Pest Control Industry. Patrice has children and she also has great love for pets. She currently has 3 dogs, an African Gray and Umbrella Cockatoo parrot and 4 Alpacas. Delivering the most effective, eco-friendly spray for people and animals is the goal!
