3 Ways Pestmaster Supports Pest Control Startups

3 Ways Pestmaster Supports Pest Control Startups

The pest control industry is booming, but pest control startups aren’t foolproof. In fact, according to the Small Business Association (SBA), a huge percentage of self-starters fail in the first 6 months.

But your business doesn’t have to become just another statistic. By choosing the right brand to align yourself with, you can avoid all the pitfalls of pest control startup and tap into this highly profitable industry fast.

Today’s post is all about how Pestmaster helps you do just that. Read on to learn 3 ways that the Pestmaster franchise supports pest control startups.

We give you more for your money

Some pest control startups can cost as much as $150,000, which may not even include the franchise fee.

Pestmaster is much more affordable, and not for a lack of quality. Our business is designed to be scalable. At launch, our sleek, home-based business model requires minimal inventory and no additional employees. And once you start to generate a profit, there’s endless room to grow.

Typical pest control startup investments range from $30,000 to $80,000. That includes the franchise fee and a big chunk of working capital to be reserved in case of emergencies or shortfalls in the opening months. This fee includes all you’d expect from any big brand, including:

Access to a proven business model

All materials required to run your business

Unparalleled training

Volume buying power

Protected territories with First Right of Refusal for surrounding locations

Human resource assistance and mentoring

Brand name authority–Pestmaster is a “Top 100” company out of over 19,000 businesses nationwide

Responsive support

We streamline pest control startups

According to The Balance: Small Business, the average start-up takes approximately 6 months to open its doors for business from the time the owner decides to take action. That’s half of a year spent idling “in the red” without seeing a single penny of profit. If it doesn’t break you mentally, this unprofitable period might just break the bank–according to the Small Business Association (SBA), up to 30% of businesses fail in the first year, unable to dig themselves out of that hole.

From day one, Pestmaster set out to design a streamlined start-up process that would lessen risk and speed profitability for pest control startups. And that’s exactly what we did.

On average, our pest control startups open their doors for business within 6 weeks of signing the Franchise Agreement. That means you can start generating a return on your investment within 1.5 months, or 4.5 months ahead of the competition.

We consolidate all your training into a single program

 As a self-starter, you’re responsible for building your own multi-disciplinary skill set. In addition to the actual pest control certifications, running a pest control business requires knowledge of accounting, management, marketing, website creation, and more. Educating yourself in all these areas can be as costly as it is time consuming–and none of it earns you a dime until your business is up and running.

Pestmaster consolidates all your training into a single streamlined program. When you work with us, you do not need any existing skill or experience in this industry to become a successful business owner. In fact, many of our most successful franchisees came to us this way.

All training fees are covered in the pest control startup investment.

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.

In today’s pest control business environment, we all need some sort of competitive edge and Pestmaster has definitely given us the edge we needed to set us apart from the competition.

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

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster® Services of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster Services 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.

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 Services. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster® Services 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 Services. 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.

The Pestmaster Franchise Network has enabled me to secure government contracts and group pricing with several vendors. The training from our entomologist and combined experience is incredibly valuable. It is a great network of knowledge, experience, and Camaraderie.”

Justin Kendall | Pestmaster® Services of Virginia Beach, Virginia

I would like to take a minute and thank you all for the incredible hospitality you all showed me.  You all contributed to a successful experience for me and I hope I can make you all proud by building a successful business in the mountains of PA and the suburbs of NJ.  Thank you again, this trip was a huge success and it would have not been possible without each and every one of you.

When we met with the franchisor, Jeff Van Diepen, we saw how involved he was with the franchises while also running some of the operations himself. Jeff was very in tune with how to run a successful franchise and was more than willing to put the time in to show that to the franchisees. I just can’t say enough about how Jeff and his team go to work each and every day to be better than the day before and how they bring that to the franchisees every day.
