3 Benefits of the Pest Control Business
Pest control business opportunities abound in 2019. A quick Google search for “pest control business for sale” yields 81,700,000 hits.
So what makes this business model so popular, and, if you want to buy, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff?
Today’s post explains 3 pest control business benefits as well as why so many investors trusted Pestmaster to build their successful businesses.
High Demand for Services in A Resilient Industry
The US structural pest control market generated approximately $8.175-billion in service revenue in 2016, according to research by Specialty Consultants. With an average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7%, it’s expected to surpass $10-billion by 2020.
This huge market demand is made sweeter by its resilience. Pests are a fact of life–and an essential part of the environment–so the demand for pest control service isn’t going anywhere.
Multiple Revenue Streams
Most first-time investors think of pest control businesses as being limited to residential and commercial treatments, but there’s much more to this model. Pest control services are used by government agencies, railroads, public utilities, and others.
In addition to conventional pest control, Pestmaster franchise owners offer vegetation control and vegetation management services. We help clients around the country treat and control excess weeds, shrubs, trees, and other unwanted vegetation around walkways, railroads, building perimeters, fence lines, and more. In doing so, Pestmaster owners are able to target new clientele and expand their visibility via complementary marketing.
Pestmaster’s multi-service model increases your service capacity beyond the competition, which means more opportunities to help those in need and a bigger return on your investment.
High Job Satisfaction Creates Profitable Positive Feedback Loops
A recent study published by the journal of Economic Research found a clear link between job satisfaction and organizational performance. The study included a sample of 40 large and medium-sized companies, with 5806 participants surveyed. Researchers concluded that the link between job satisfaction and performance worked in both directions, so that an increase in one boosted the other (Bakotić, 2016). That only makes sense: when you’re do something you love, you perform better, and we tend to like the things we’re good at.
Pestmaster franchise owners can vouch for that. One of the major benefits of owning a pest control business is that the work is immensely rewarding. Every day, you get to be somebody’s hero, ridding their home or business of dirty, dangerous, and destructive pests. And because our integrated pest management (IPM) system is informed by an enviro-mentality, using plant-based materials and eco-friendly habitat modification practices, you can go home every night feeling good about having made the world a little greener. IPM also strives to remove pests without harming them–you can learn more about our animal trapping techniques here.
The Pestmaster franchise model is geared to maximize owner satisfaction. That’s why we invest so much in top-tier training and responsive support, and why we worked so hard to build and maintain a positive franchise culture.
But don’t take our word for it. Check out these franchise testimonials telling all about what makes the Pestmaster model so satisfying.
When you like your work, working hard feels effortless, so your business performs better. And then the positive feedback loop starts–you’re even happier, you perform even better, and your return on investment (ROI) swells.
