How to Evaluate a Pest Control Specialist Franchise Opportunity

Today’s post runs down two simple and effective strategies for evaluating pest control specialist franchise opportunities from the comfort of your couch! Read on or call 800-525-8866 to talk with a representative right away.

Scrutinize The Pest Control Specialist Franchise Start-up Package

There are several pest control specialist franchise opportunities out there, but while they may all offer the same basic services and business model, no two start-up packages are alike. Before you buy, make sure you thoroughly evaluate the pest control specialist franchise start-up package detailed on the company’s website.

According to research by, the average franchise opportunity costs between $50,000 to $200,000 to get started. That puts our pest control specialist franchise opportunity, which typically requires an investment of $30,000 to $85,000, squarely in the “low cost” category.

So what does that start-up investment get you?

  • A complete start-up package—everything from training and marketing resources to ongoing support from our contract procurement department
  • Speedy start-up—most owners take between 3 to 6 weeks to get started, which is about 300% faster than most start-ups, according to the Small Business Association (SBA)
  • GSA contractsPestmaster is pre-approved by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide services for government facilities, and we are the #1 small business enterprise (SBE) in the nation for providing pest control services to the federal government
  • Responsive support—you’re only ever a phone call away from getting the help you need from our dedicated corporate support team
  • Supply discounts—our pest control specialist franchise opportunity comes with insider deals and volume-buying discounts built-in!
  • Protected territory—every pest control specialist franchise owner gets exclusive sales rights to a territory containing approximately 500,000 residents
  • Access to the Pestmaster Equity Modelenjoy the freedom to retire with a self-built 401k and a portfolio of government contracts that can sell for 1-3 times their annual revenues

We’ve barely scratched the surface, but it’s enough to hammer this point home: great franchise opportunities exist. There is absolutely no reason to settle for an overpriced pest control specialist franchise when there are more cost-effective alternatives out there.

Assess The Pest Control Specialist Franchise’s Online Reputation

According to a 2017 report by the eCommerce Foundation, 88% of modern shoppers pre-research their buys online. Thus, the online reputation of any potential pest control specialist franchise partner must be pristine. Negative reviews on third-party websites and highly visible online assets (e.g. the Google My Business listing) can turn business away, or else lead to increased marketing costs.

A simple Google search is often enough to shed light on the matter—and that’s where the average consumer starts, too. Make sure searches for any prospective pest control specialist franchise turns up plenty of positive feedback. Look for these kinds of results:

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.
