Benefits Of Buying A Pest Control Business

Benefits Of Buying A Pest Control Business

Thinking about starting a pest control business in 2020? Today’s post runs down some of the biggest benefits of launching your company as part of the Pestmaster franchise family.

Pest Control Business Owners Enjoy Constant Service Demand

Pest control businesses aren’t restricted to specific markets or at the mercy of market shifts; pests are everywhere, and service demand never stops. Check out the Pestmaster’ Industry Facts and Figures page for some stunning statistics about how the demand for pest control service is growing across the board.

In addition to working in a thriving market, Pestmaster owners get help securing big-ticket federal GSA contracts, and constantly get leads via our national website.

You Can Start A Pest Control Business For Less Than You Think

Starting a pest control business with Pestmaster is possible for as little as $30,000, thanks to our sleek business model and streamlined start-up. The total initial investment ranges from $30,000 to $85,000, which includes the franchise fee along with a liquid cash requirement of $20,000 to $30,000 of working capital that is retained to cover any shortfalls or emergencies in the opening months. That’s a fraction of what you’d pay for some other franchises, like some of the big fast food brands, which have nowhere near the resilience and widespread demand of a pest control business.

Pestmaster also discounts and offers in-house financing to qualified individuals. We can cover up to 50% of the franchise fee. Alternatively, we can connect you with third party sources that offer financing to cover your working capital, franchise fee, startup costs, equipment, and inventory. Find out more on the Pestmaster Cost and Criteria page.

You Can Start A Pest Control Business Faster Than You Think

Faster startup is good. It means you break even faster and start profiting sooner. And in cases where you’re racing to capitalize on an emerging market opportunity, speed is essential.

On average, it takes new pest control business owners between 3 to 6 weeks to get their doors open for business. And we stand by that startup timeline whether you’re an experienced owner converting your company to a Pestmaster location, or a total newbie branching into a new industry. We’ve been refining our training system for more than 40 years, and today we’re proud to share a sleek and effective curriculum that provides owners with everything they need, and nothing they don’t.

Pest Control Businesses Capitalize On ‘Green’ Service Demand

In 2020, the demand for eco-friendly or ‘green’ products and services has never been higher. After decades of social marketing, environmentalism is a priority for consumers, so much so that Millennial buyers have indicated that they will not purchase products or services from unsupportive and unsustainable brands.

That’s all great news for pest control business owners. Pestmaster offers a variety of ‘green’ products and services. Indeed, our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system is designed with sustainability in mind, and many of our vegetation control services actively promote healthy ecosystems.

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.”
