Call the Franchise Department
By calling 800-525-8866, you will be able to talk with one of our franchise development specialists who will answer your questions. In addition, you will receive a copy of our confidential franchise questionnaire. Your first assignment will be to complete the questionnaire, which asks about your qualifications, interest, and readiness to own and operate a Pestmaster business.
Return the Questionnaire
Once you have candidly and completely answered the questionnaire, it is important to return it to us in a timely manner. From your answers, our team can evaluate your answers. In this process, we can determine your strengths. We will also be able to establish what kind of assistance you will need to form your business and be successful.
Conduct an Evaluation
As part of the evaluation process, you will schedule a conference call with Pestmaster’ President and Founder Jeff Van Diepen. On this call, you will have a chance to discuss the reasons supporting why you should make the decision to franchise with Pestmaster. Mr. Van Diepen will also share details about the business with you such as the company’s history and its vision. Following the conference call, if you are inspired and convinced to move forward with becoming a Pestmaster franchisee, we will have you review and fill out a copy of our formal application.
Wrap-up the Process
During the wrap-up, we will have you review and sign Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD). Up next is the part of the process where we conduct a personal background check and a soft credit check. We will work with you to determine and agree on your business’s geographic territory. When you and Pestmaster are ready to move forward from here, we will invite you to an optional visit of our corporate headquarters in Reno, Nevada. You will have the opportunity to meet our management team, ask questions, sign the franchise agreement, and explore the greater Reno area if you wish.
Once you have signed off on all final documents, received your final approvals, and submitted all of the necessary fees you will be ready to attend training! To attend and complete your formal training program with Pestmaster, you will plan to spend one week in Reno and one week in your new business territory with Pestmaster President Jeff Van Diepen.
