Love Your Work: Owning A Pest Control Business In 2020

Love Your Work Owning A Pest Control Business In 2020

Today’s post runs down a few of the reasons why Pestmaster Services owners love what they do. Read on to find out some of the perks of owning a pest control business in 2020.

Owning A Pest Control Business Means Freedom From Deskbound 9-to-5 Life

Though office administration is always an option for those more comfortable in this role, most people interested in owning a pest control business find active lifestyles more appealing. Pest control operators stay healthy and stay active, avoiding all the health risks of deskbound work, without beating their bodies down with hard labor. It’s a perfect balance of healthy activity that’s sustainable for the long haul.

Owning a pest control business also gives you considerable control over your schedule, so you never need to be bound to the 9-to-5 model again.

Owning A Pest Control Business With Pestmaster Services Supports Our Troops

As you’ll see around the 2-minute mark of the Pestmaster Services Virtual Tour, owning a pest control business unlocks all new opportunities to give back to those dedicated to defending our rights and freedoms in the military.

As exclusive GSA contract holders, Pestmaster Services is responsible for treating a large number of military facilities, VA hospitals, and government services throughout the nation. For example, we’ve provided services to the Westpoint Military academy for over 17 years running.

Whether you take the virtual tour or visit our headquarters in person post-COVID-19, you’ll see the walls of our training and conference room adorned with plaques showing our dedication to the American military and veterans who fought for us. It’s just another way for us to thank our troops, and another reason to love your work as a Pestmaster Services provider.

Additionally, we offer considerable start-up discounts for veteran investors, which you can learn more about on our Costs and Criteria page.

Owning A Pest Control Business With Pestmaster Services Means Joining A Supportive Franchise Family

Positive organizational cultures boost morale, productivity, and overall job satisfaction, all while lowering stress, according to research cited by Forbes magazine. So you’ll be pleased to know we’ve built a truly supportive franchise-family atmosphere.

You’ll find a great example of this family atmosphere around the 3-minute mark of the Pestmaster Services Virtual Tour, as owner Jeff Van Diepen points out a few of his favorite pictures from one of our frequent franchise-family meals.

“We believe in good foods and good spirits in order to facilitate good business!” says Jeff with a smile.

Our commitment to creating a supportive family atmosphere is also felt through our comprehensive franchise supports, coaching, and the help offered by fellow franchise members. We’re all in this together, and your success is our mission!

How Owning A Pest Control Business Helps Stop The Spread Of COVID-19 And Improve Quality-of-life During Quarantine?

As a Pestmaster Services provider, you’ll form part of America’s critical infrastructure, helping businesses operate safely, making shelter-in-place orders easier, and slowing the spread in your community in the following ways:

  • As mentioned around the 3:50-minute mark of the Pestmaster Services virtual tour, we’re now offering COVID-19 decontamination services to help businesses reopen safely amidst the pandemic.
  • By eliminating household pests and providing qualified vector health controls, we’re making life better for those ordered to shelter-in-place.

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.

Wayne Holliday & Tommy Houk | Pestmaster® Services of Lake City & Gainesville, FL

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.

Bart Van Diepen | Pestmaster® Services of Northern San Diego, CA

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.

Jerome Snyder | Pestmaster® Services 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.”

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.
