Why Is Pestmaster Great For First-Time Owners?

These are just a few of the ways we make start-up easy for first-timers:

  • The groundwork has already been done. Just like homes, businesses need strong foundations. Standard operating procedures, policies, relationships with vendors, and brand identity are just the tip of the iceberg. Putting all these pieces together can take years, and you’ll only get it right after a number of costly lessons.But when you buy a pest control business under the Pestmaster banner, the groundwork has already been laid, and our business model has already proven profitable. From your first day on the job, you’ll have access to multiple recurring revenue streams, exclusive insider discounts from vendors, comprehensive support, and lucrative service contracts with commercial, residential, and government clients.
  • Low start-up costs. Depending on your background, the total initial investment ranges between $30,000 and $85,000. This covers everything you need to get started, including all your training and inventory costs in the early goings, along with $20,000-$30,000 of working capital to use in case of shortfalls and emergencies.
  • No experience or training required. The Pestmaster training program covers all the bases, teaching you everything you need to know about sales, pest control, marketing, back-office management, and more. In fact, some of our most successful franchise owners entered into the Pestmaster system without any prior knowledge or experience in pest control. 
  • Our pest control franchise is easy to scale, whenever you’re ready. Our pest control franchise opportunity is perfectly viable as a one-person operation, and many of our owners choose to stick with this structure for years, running the company out of their home, without having to worry about any real overhead costs or employee headaches. But whenever you’re ready to scale up, Pestmaster makes it easy. We help our owners with long-term planning, site selection, lease negotiations, signage, office setup, local marketing, hiring, onboarding, and more.

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.

Jerome Snyder | Pestmaster of Central New York

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.”
