How To Start A Successful Pest Control Specialists Franchise With No Experience

How To Start A Successful Pest Control Specialists Franchise With No Experience

Starting a successful pest control specialist franchise with no experience sounds crazy, but we make it happen for entrepreneurs every year! Today’s post explains how easy it is with Pestmaster Services.

Step 1: Finance Your Pest Control Specialists Franchise

Once you’ve chosen a brand to work with, the first step in starting your successful pest control specialist franchise is financing. Unlike with self-startership, franchising gives you a clear idea of how much start-up costs–and more importantly, how long it will take.

The Pestmaster Services opportunity requires a total initial investment of between $30,000 and $85,000. This includes the one-time Franchise Fee, as well as $20,000 to $30,000 of working capital, which is only intended to be used in case of emergencies or shortfalls in the early months (many Pestmaster Services franchise owners never spend it). You can see a complete breakdown on the Pestmaster Services Cost and Criteria page.

General pest control business owners or employees looking to start their own pest control specialist franchise may be eligible for streamlined start-up and discounts. On average, owners converting existing pest control companies into pest control specialist franchises save $12,500 up front. Additional discounts are available for military veterans and qualified disabled veterans.

If you need assistance, Pestmaster Services offers in-house financing to qualified individuals. We can cover up to 50% of the franchise fee, and also direct you towards reputable third-party lenders if needed.

Step 2: Train To Become A Pest Control Specialist

Believe it or not, no prior experience or pest control skills are needed to start a successful pest control specialist franchise. Though we welcome experienced owners looking to convert their companies, we’ve spent the last 40 years honing our proven start-up, training, and support system so that it works for anyone with the right attitude. Today, some of our most successful owners entered into the franchise with no pest control backgrounds.

Whether you’re a pest control veteran or a total beginner, our training program will have you licensed and ready to work fast. Average start-up time ranges between 3 to 6 weeks. We also offer plenty of opportunities for continuing education via coaching, upgrade training, and license expansion, allowing you to specialize in any area you choose.

Step 3: Hit The Ground Running With A Proven System And Winning Reputation

Pestmaster Services has built a great reputation in the industry that will help you generate sales from the moment your doors open for business.

We’ve earned plenty of awards, accolades, and insider perks over the years, including:

Using our proven system, which has built dozens of businesses in varied markets over four decades, your pest control specialist franchise will hit the ground running and continue to generate an impressive return on your investment for years to come.

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.

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.
