Can You Franchise in the Pest Control Industry?
Can you franchise in the pest control industry?
Franchises work best in industries with recurring, nationwide demand, and pest control offers just that. Year after year, Speciality Marketing Consultants tracks substantial growth in all market sectors. Pest activity is on the rise everywhere, which gives franchisors plenty of fertile territories to grow their brands.
If you’ve never considered the possibility of owning a pest control franchise, you’ve been missing out on all the following benefits:
Transparent cost structures. When it comes to start-up and operating costs, independent pest control businesses are usually left in the dark until it’s time to pay up. This “fear of the financial unknown” leads to a lot of stress and may cause you to miss out on other investment opportunities.
Running a pest control franchise is different. Costs are clearly laid out, allowing for better planning and stress-busting financial forecasts.
Starting a pest control business might cost less than you think. Most Pestmaster franchise owners will only require a startup investment of $30,000 to $80,000, which includes the franchise fee and a big chunk of working capital to cover you in case of shortfalls or emergencies. Veterans and owners who are converting existing pest control companies into Pestmaster businesses pay even less.
- Brand name recognition. Working with a pest control franchise gives you big brand power from day-one. So long as you choose the right company, brand name recognition will help you generate leads and build your client base early on. In contrast, self-starters usually start slow as they work to build brand trust.
- All-in-one training and education. To start a successful pest control company, you need a multidisciplinary education. Business management/planning skills, pest control expertise, and marketing savvy are all essential skills. Cobbling this skill set together on our own can take serious time and money, which is why franchising is such a great option. Pestmaster provides complete training programs that cover all you need to know to build a successful company worthy of the Top-100 SBE recognition we’ve won for the past 15 years. And it doesn’t stop once you’re open for business. We provide plenty of opportunities for continuing education to keep your company on the cutting edge.
- Proven-effective business model. Franchises grow because their underlying business models work. Why gamble on a homebrewed system when the answers are already out there? Pestmaster has been building successful pest control companies from scratch–and converting existing companies whose owners want financial independence–for nearly 40 years.
- Fast startup. Idling in the pre-opening phase has been the downfall of countless pest control companies across America. Franchising circumvents that risk with a fast and efficient start-up process, which includes full support with training, licensing, lease negotiation, territory selection, equipment purchasing, and more. Most owners have their doors open for business within three to six weeks of signing the Franchise Agreement.
