Should You Franchise or Do It Yourself

Being your own boss has a lot of perks. You set your own schedule, you make your own decisions, and the only person you have to impress is you. But starting a new business can be challenging, often taking a great deal of time and money before it starts to turn a profit. Franchising offers you the opportunity to be your own boss without facing many of the difficulties small business owners face. So, if you’re looking to run your own business, before you get started ask yourself, should you franchise or do it yourself?

Going into Business for Yourself

There are a lot of challenges and difficulties to overcome in order to make your business successful!

There are a lot of challenges and difficulties to overcome in order to make your business successful!

Owning your own business has a lot of perks. The confidence that comes with being an entrepreneur is extremely satisfying and running things as you see fit is rewarding. Any money you make you get to keep, you select the staff, and you determine the direction your business goes in.

But as a small business owner, there are a lot of challenges and difficulties to overcome in order to make your business successful. Running your own business takes a lot of investment, and without a steady source of revenue, can pose a financial risk. Learning new aspects of running a business, like balancing the books, inventory planning, and marketing your company can be time-consuming, which means long hours at work. But what if there was a way to enjoy the benefits of entrepreneurship without so many risks?

Franchising provides you with the independence of owning your own business, with the backing of a nationally recognized company. Some of the benefits of franchising include:

  • Low Start-Up Cost– Franchising offers low start-up costs to help you get your business up and running quickly.
  • High Rate of Success– The backing of a nationwide company, along with brand recognition, help franchises have a high rate of success.
  • Training and Support– Instead of using trial and error to find successful business strategies, companies will teach franchisees everything they need to know about running one of their stores.
  • Building a Client Base– Rather than face the challenge of building a client base, franchisees have access to a company’s existing clientele, helping them start building relationships and securing steady sources of revenue.
  • Marketing Assistance– With years of experience, companies can help franchisees develop a successful marketing strategy to attract customers.
  • Buying Power– Having the backing of a nationally recognized company can help give you purchasing power that can keep your costs down and help your bottom line.

Dr. Stuart Mitchell | BCE

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.”
