Pest Control Franchise Cost-benefit Analysis: 3 Reasons To Consider Pestmaster In 2020

Today’s post explains how to use a pest control franchise cost-benefit analysis (CBA) to assess the value of a potential investment. Read on to learn about the costs and benefits of the Pestmaster Services opportunity in 2020.

Pest Control Franchise Cost-benefit Analysis (CBA)

A cost-benefit analysis (CBA) is the standard process by which the benefits of a business decision are measured. Financial metrics, such as revenue earned or expenses saved, weigh heavily, but the best CBA’s also include intangible costs and benefits.

So how do you proceed?

According to Investopedia, “a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) should begin with compiling a list of all the costs and benefits associated with the project or decision.”

You can use the following list to help get you started:

1.  Pest Control Franchise Cost – Low Start-up Investment

The first step to a good CBA is to list the costs, but our low start-up costs are more of a benefit than anything.

When you partner with Pestmaster Services, typical initial pest control franchise costs range between $30,000 and $85,000. This includes the franchise fee, as well as all your training, equipment, and advertising expenses. It also includes between $20,000 to $30,000 of working capital to be used only in case of emergencies or shortfalls in the opening months. Discounts and financing options are also available.

Our start-up investment is low by design, to benefit you. The Pestmaster Services business model requires no brick-and-mortar office building, no employees, and minimal equipment. Most owners expand into an office after 9 to 18 months due to overwhelming demand, but how you grow and operate your business is largely up to you. Whatever your goals, our business model will flex to fit and bring you to the breakeven point fast.

2.  Pest Control Franchise Cost – Low Ongoing Operational Costs

Our business model is designed to cut your ongoing operational costs in several ways. From day-one, we minimize overhead by allowing you to operate entirely out of your home, with minimal equipment and no employees. But even after the start-up period is over and you start to expand, we continue to drive down your operational costs by offering supply discounts and bulk order savings.

3.  Pest Control Franchise Benefits – Fast Access To A Thriving Industry

While the start-up and operational costs are significant, they’re far outweighed by the benefits of starting a pest control business with Pestmaster Services.

Whether you have any experience or pest control skills, our proven start-up model will teach you everything you need to know within 3 to 6 weeks. By the time your training is complete, you’ll have unlocked all the following benefits:

  • Instant access to a thriving pest control industry with robust service demand

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.

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.

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.
