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.

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.
