What is a Bug Partner?

Bug Tussel wants to be apart of every community that we serve. Part of this is partnering with local companies for mutual benefit. We supply each partner with a desk stand with referral cards for customers to take. When a new customer is referred by a Bug Partner, both the Partner and the referred customer receive a monetary bonus! We also commonly look to hold local events at these partner’s businesses to bring attention to both organizations.

If you would like to become a partner of Bug Tussel, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page! For questions, please contact your local representative.
