Why Buy A Pest Control Franchise Versus Starting Solo?

If you’re tired of working for somebody else, or you’re simply ready for a fresh start, the thought of launching a brand new business can be truly intoxicating.

But daydreamers tend to dwell on the sweeter side of self-starting—the personal freedom, the chance to be part of bootstrapping Americana, and the faithful day you get to tell the boss, “I quit!

Unfortunately, the reality of self-starting is often a little harsher. Even before COVID-19 complicated the equation, research by the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that most new businesses fail. In fact, 1 in 5 fold in the first year, 50% close around the five-year mark, and 70% fail before their 10-year anniversary.

A CBInsights Analysis of 101 startup founders, cited by Fortune Magazine, identified 3 main reasons why new businesses fail:

  1. 42% of small businesses fail “because there’s no market need for their services or products”
  2. 29% of small businesses fail “because they ran out of cash”
  3. 23% of small businesses fail “because they didn’t have the right team running the business”

But what if you could find a business opportunity that eliminates all 3 of these risks, while still giving you the freedom of self-startership? That’s exactly what our pest control franchise can get you.

Start A Pest Control Franchise With Unprecedented Service Demand

42% of small businesses fail because there’s no market need for their services or products, but that’s something you’ll never have to worry about as a Pestmaster owner. The US Structural Pest Control market hit $10 billion in revenue last year, and it’s expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the period 2020−2026, according to Pest Control Technology research, driven to unprecedented heights in part due to:

  • Increased demand for integrated pest management among eco-friendly, health-conscious consumers
  • Increased demand for household pest management and disinfection services due to COVID-19 isolation
  • Increased pest populations due to temperature increases resulting from climate change

Pestmaster also sets owners up with multiple revenue streams, so they can focus on the services they like best, and work without any worry that their revenue is tied to a single pest population.

Start A Pest Control Franchise To Save Money On Start-up And Operating Costs

29% of small businesses fail because they run out of cash, but Pestmaster franchise needn’t worry about that. Our sleek business model keeps start-up costs low, lets you scale up whenever you’re ready, and lays out initial costs clearly for better financial planning. We also get our franchise owners access to ongoing supply/equipment discounts, and our fat-free training program prevents you from wasting money on overeducation.

Start A Pest Control Franchise With The Best Team In The Business

23% of small businesses fail because the owner didn’t surround themselves with the right team. While our business model supports solo startership, and many owners run their businesses by themselves for years, Pestmaster provides unmatched support from established industry experts, whenever and wherever it’s needed. Whether you need help with backend business software, marketing, inventory, onboarding, or expansion into new services, we’ll be there to help!

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.
