Fast Facts: 5 Reasons To Consider Starting A Pest Control Company With Pestmaster

Industry reports suggest there’s never been a better time to consider starting a pest control company. Today’s post shares 5 rapid-fire reasons to consider partnering with Pestmaster.

1. Starting A Pest Control Company Costs Less Than You Think

Starting a pest control company with Pestmaster typically costs between $30,000 and $85,000. That’s about the price of the average franchise fee, according to Entrepreneur magazine.

But our start-up investment covers everything you need to operate your business, including the franchise fee, equipment, signage, software, and training, plus as much as $30,000 of working capital to keep on-hand for emergencies.

2. Pestmaster Offers Discounts And Financing Options For Start-ups

Pestmaster offers discounts for military veterans, qualified disabled veterans, and pest control business owners converting their companies. We also offer discounts for those buying additional territories, so you can save even more money when you’re ready to expand your business.

Pestmaster also offers in-house financing to qualified individuals. We can cover up to 50% of the franchise fee, and we also have relationships with third-party sources that can help cover the costs of working capital, equipment, and inventory.

3. Starting A Pest Control Company Provides A Resilient, Recurring Revenue Stream

Pests will always be a fact of life, and most upper-income residential customers aren’t willing to share their space with insects and rodents. What’s more, neglecting pests can cost homeowners and businesses thousands of dollars in damage. As such, most pest control companies aren’t phased by economic downturns. Even the novel COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t put a dent in pest control revenues, as demand for our essential services held strong even days after the state of emergency was initially declared.

4. Pest Control Companies Have Very Low Overhead Costs

Pestmaster franchise owners typically run businesses out of their homes for the first few months, at which point they have the option to expand and increase market share, or continue maximizing profits with minimal overhead. Our model requires very little equipment and zero inventory, and much of the marketing occurs organically via our website and national brand reputation. Though you always have the option of spending more to make more, our low-overhead model works great as-is.

5. Starting A Pest Control Company With Pestmaster Gets You GSA Schedules

GSA schedules, also referred to as Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) and Federal Supply Schedules, are long-term governmentwide contracts with commercial firms providing federal, state, and local government buyers.

Pestmaster is proud to be part of an elite group of GSA schedule contract holders, giving us exclusive access to high-value government clientele.

Dr. Stuart Mitchell | BCE

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.
