Be Your Own Boss: Start A Pest Control Franchise In 2020

Self-employment is associated with happiness and greater job satisfaction. Today’s post is about how to be your own boss by starting a flexible pest control franchise with Pestmaster.

Science Says Being Your Own Boss Increases Happiness At Work

That’s what researchers concluded in a seminal 2004 study, and it’s accepted as “a fact now well established” in economics literature: self-employed pest control business owners are happier than all the rest (Benz & Frey, 2004, p. 95)

“Self-employed people are substantially more satisfied with their work than the employed,” write Matthias Benz and Bruno Frey. “Higher job satisfaction among the self-employed can be directly attributed to the greater independence and autonomy they enjoy.”

If you want to be happier at work, making the transition from pest control employee to employer might be the answer. Likewise, if you’re looking for a second career in a profitable industry that allows you to be your own boss, we can help.

Start Your Own Pest Control Franchise With Pestmaster

Our flexible pest control franchise model allows you to build and run your own Pestmaster business within a safe and supportive framework.

No prior pest control training or experience is required. The Pestmaster franchise model has been helping entrepreneurs build successful pest control businesses for over 40 years. We offer a comprehensive training program, help with licensing and license expansion, and full pest control franchise support services.

For those looking to convert their existing pest control businesses or make the switch from pest control employee to employer, start-up is even more streamlined, and start-up costs are reduced.

Unique Benefits Of Starting A Pestmaster Pest Control Franchise

There are plenty of good reasons to consider the Pestmaster opportunity beyond being your own boss. These are just a few of the things our pest control franchise owners love about the Pestmaster systems:

  • Exclusive access to valuable federal contracts. As GSA Schedule Contract Holders, Pestmaster is one of a limited number of pre-approved vendors for federal pest control work. Our team will help you bid on these valuable federal contracts.
  • Ongoing training and support. In addition to our start-up training program, we offer ongoing coaching, technical assistance, and recommendations for sales, marketing, daily operations, vendor relations, and anything else you might need. Leverage the collective knowledge of our vast pest control network to further your individual business goals.
  • National brand recognition. One of the most difficult parts of starting your own business is building trust and brand recognition in the early stages. When you’re going at it alone, your first clients will essentially need to take a leap of faith. But not with the Pestmaster brand behind you. From day-one, you’ll get all the benefits of the reputation we’ve spent the last 40 years building.

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.

Jerome Snyder | Pestmaster of Central New York

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.”
