3 Reasons to Start a Pest Control Business Franchise

Today’s post runs down 3 reasons why investors ought to consider starting a Pest Control business franchise in 2019.

Reason #1 — You’re Sick of Reading Success Stories from the Sidelines.

Thousands of business owners have come built successful companies in the pest control industry.

Take Kari Warberg Block for example. This former perfume saleswoman was featured in Forbes magazine after building a $10-million Pest Control business out of her home. And while Block’s story is certainly a special case, it’s not as rare as you might think.

In fact, our Pest Control business franchise success story isn’t far off. We first started as a home-based business in the town of Bishop, California back in 1979. From these humble beginnings, we’ve grown into a national brand with over 30 franchises around the world, and Pestmaster has been a top 100 ranked SBE company for 15 years running.

Clearly, success stories abound in the Pest Control industry. And it’s not hard to see why: it’s a resilient market with strong demand for services, relatively low start-up costs, and reasonable barriers to entry.

If you’re sick of reading these stories and ready to write your own, our Pest Control business franchise can help. Learn more here.

Reason #2 — Pest Control Business Franchise Territories Are Available Near You.

Like most franchises, our pest control business franchise utilizes an exclusive territory system to ensure that every franchisee has a healthy number of potential local customers at all times. Each territory includes roughly 500,000 potentialcustomers. You get exclusive Pestmaster rights to your territory, which eliminates the risk of intra-franchise competition or “cannibalizing sales.” Pestmaster franchisees also cannot advertise in your area, which makes your marketing budget more cost-effective.

And there are available markets near you! You can explore available pest control business franchise opportunities on our dynamic territory map.

Reason #3 — The -Pest Control Business Franchise Model Is Extremely Lucrative.

The keys to our Pest Control business franchise model are:

  • Unwavering demand. Unlike some other industries, Pest Control business owners can expect steady demand for their services. While this doesn’t mean you’ll always get X jobs per month, you’ll never have to worry about your services going “out of fashion” or becoming obsolete. Pests are facts of life, so you can be sure people will always be buying what you’re selling. You can find more industry facts and figures here.
  • Repeat business. The Pest Control business franchise model effortlessly wins repeat customers. Many pests are cyclical, even seasonal, which guarantees a return visit. But even one-time treatments create loyal customers–people tend not to forget the name of the company that came to their rescue.
  • Low overhead costs. There isn’t a lot of overhead expenditure required to run a pest control business franchise. Many franchisees run their business entirely out of their homes with no additional staff. All you really need is the right vehicle and equipment.
  • Multiple revenue streams. Your Pest Control business franchise will be called upon to treat residential units, commercial locations, and government buildings for pest treatments, vegetation management, and more.

Simply put, the Pest Control business franchise model minimizes your expenses while positioning your company to take advantage of major market opportunities.

I’ve been in the industry for years and I can’t tell you just how valuable the Pestmaster franchise opportunity really is. I have much greater access to identifying and getting potent government contracts with the help and assistance from the corporate office. We would not be nearly as successful as we are today, had we not purchased a Pestmaster Franchise.

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster franchise, we could not have gone from just one to several employees in less than one year of purchasing the franchise. Without the franchise, we would not have known about the high-dollar pest control services opportunities such as West Point Academy and we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.

Paul Alley | Pestmaster of Kingston, NY

I owned my own small pest control business for six years before I decided to buy a national brand franchise. The amount of business I was able to produce in those six years was doubled in just my first year with Pestmaster. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster of Salt Lake City, UT

I knew I was ready to start a business and looked for a long time but could not find my value-added proposition What could I do better than anyone else to distinguish me from the others in any industry? I have always been a technical person, so I was not confident in my ability to start a brand and market it. I also didn’t want to start from zero without help and support in my new adventure. For these reasons I looked into franchising opportunities and quickly found Pestmaster. They provided the value-added proposition, branding, marketing and support that I was looking for. The business model works and the people in the PFN will help you succeed.
