Evaluating Pest Control Franchises For Sale With Competitive Benchmarking

Trying to evaluate pest control franchises for sale near you? Pestmaster Services can help. Read on for some competitive benchmarking tips to help you assess the value of local opportunities.

What Is Competitive Benchmarking?

Quite simply, competitive benchmarking is about identifying performance benchmarks and best practices used by the best pest control franchises in the industry, then using that information to evaluate pest control franchises for sale near you. The quality of the opportunity is determined based on how it stacks up to these benchmarks and best practices.

Why Choose Pestmaster Services For Competitive Benchmarking?

When you’re looking for benchmarks and best practices to assess pest control franchises for sale near you, Pestmaster Services is a great starting point. A quick review of our history of success leaves little doubt:

Pestmaster Services was originally founded in 1979 by Jeff Van Diepen in the small community of Bishop California. After our first year in business, it was clear that we had developed a winning model that was focused on three major areas of service: pest control, vegetation management, and health related/vector control, all of which are still the foundation of the company today.

When expansion opportunities presented themselves, Pestmaster Services quickly grew into a regional, then national franchise system, with successful franchise locations placed strategically across the United States. After 40+ years in business, it’s clear that our historically successful “turn key” model offers owners the perfect road map and gives independent franchise operators exactly what they need to thrive.

So whether you’re looking to “reverse engineer” our success to build benchmarks for evaluating opportunities, or want to partner with one of the best pest control franchises in America, Pestmaster Services is the answer.

Benchmarks For Evaluating Pest Control Franchises

The following benchmarks and best practices represent some of our major value propositions:

  • Streamlined start-up. Don’t fall for the pricey equipment packages or start-up excesses being offered by some other pest control franchises. You can run a successful business right out of your home with minimal equipment, no salaried employees, and a 3-to-6 week training program under your belt. Pestmaster Services gets your business up and running within 3 to 6 weeks so you can break even and start profiting faster than the competition. Avoid companies that draw out startups.
  • Fair start-up investment. Thanks in large part to our sleek business model and streamlined start-up process, you can start a pest control franchise with Pestmaster for as little as $30,000, which includes the franchise fee. In some cases, start-up may run as high as $85,000. But steer clear of opportunities asking for more without offering much extra!
  • Top-tier training and support. Our pest control franchise offers comprehensive and fat-free training that covers all you need to know in a 3-to-6 week period. Our training program is proven successful, having built dozens of successful businesses across the country. We also provide ongoing support from the day you sign the pest control franchise agreement to the day you retire.
  • GSA contract acquisition support. Owners that start a pest control franchise with our team get full support with GSA contract bidding and acquisition, which allows us to secure big-ticket federal service contracts for members of our franchise family. What is your prospective pest control franchise offering to do for you?
  • 40+ years as a leading pest control company. Our 40 years of success gives consumers and investors unmatched confidence in our brand.

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.

Wayne Holliday & Tommy Houk | Pestmaster® Services of Lake City & Gainesville, FL

In today’s pest control business environment, we all need some sort of competitive edge and Pestmaster has definitely given us the edge we needed to set us apart from the competition.

Pestmaster® has been the best investment I’ve ever made in my life!

Barrett Alley | Pestmaster® Services of Kingston, NY

We had options, but if we hadn’t decided on a Pestmaster Services 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® Services 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 Services. Joining the Pestmaster brand was an excellent choice for me and for the future of my business.

Chris Nelson | Pestmaster® Services 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 Services. 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.

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.”

Justin Kendall | Pestmaster® Services of Virginia Beach, Virginia

I would like to take a minute and thank you all for the incredible hospitality you all showed me.  You all contributed to a successful experience for me and I hope I can make you all proud by building a successful business in the mountains of PA and the suburbs of NJ.  Thank you again, this trip was a huge success and it would have not been possible without each and every one of you.

Tony Cuiffo | Pestmaster® Services of New Jersey & Pennsylvania

When we met with the franchisor, Jeff Van Diepen, we saw how involved he was with the franchises while also running some of the operations himself. Jeff was very in tune with how to run a successful franchise and was more than willing to put the time in to show that to the franchisees. I just can’t say enough about how Jeff and his team go to work each and every day to be better than the day before and how they bring that to the franchisees every day.
