Starting Your Own Pest Control Company: Life After Start-Up

Starting Your Own Pest Control Company: Life After Start-Up

When you really think through the benefits of franchising, it’s easy to see why so many experts recommend starting your own pest control company with the help of a national brand. With the option of using a historically proven system, high-quality training and support services, and all the power of an established brand name, starting your own pest control company has never been easier.

Unfortunately, some franchisors promise investors the world up front, then basically leave franchise owners to fend for themselves once their contractual obligations to assist with start-up are complete (and the franchise fee is pocketed!).

Some perks obviously don’t drop off, like the sales-boosting power of our national brand recognition and our status as a “Top 100” pest control company (out of over 19,000 nationally!). But the “lifespan” of other franchising perks—corporate support, supply and material discounts, contract connections, and so on—isn’t always guaranteed.

Today’s post is intended to help you make smarter investment decisions when starting your own pest control company by giving you a glimpse of “life after start-up” under the Pestmaster Services banner. Read on to learn what to expect once your doors are open for business!

Pestmaster Services Supports Franchise Owners From Day-one To Retirement

Here’s the bottom line: none of our franchising perks fall off after start-up. All franchise owners receive:

  • Ongoing discounts on general liability insurance rates, along with materials, vehicles, and supplies
  • GSA Schedule contract connections
  • Ongoing support with state licensing and expansion of existing licensing
  • Ongoing access to great training, support, and mentoring, and much more!

We also drive sales for your business for the duration of your career. In addition to generating leads via our national website, we will help you secure government contracts via the support of our in-house contract procurement department, which is dedicated solely to identify, submitting, and winning local, state, and federal contracts for our national franchise network.

Life After Start-up, According To Pestmaster Services Franchise Owners

When asked for their thoughts on our business system post-start-up, one thing that owners spoke about time and time again was the profitability of our historically successful model:

“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,” writes Chris Nelson, owner of Pestmaster Services of Salt Lake City, UT.

Pestmaster Services started in 1979 as a small business in the small town of Bishop, CA and has since grown into a top national brand, thanks to the power of our sleek, cost-effective, and eminently scalable business model. With decades of evidence behind us, we know our system works, and your business will continue to benefit from it until the day you retire.

Other Pestmaster Services owners chose to express their gratitude for our GSA Schedule contract connections:

“Without the franchise, we would not have known about high-dollar pest control services opportunities,”  writes Paul Alley, owner of Pestmaster Services of Kingston, NY. “And we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.”

In 2001, Pestmaster Services earned a spot on an exclusive list of GSA Approved Government Pest Control providers pre-qualified to work with federal clients. Though there is no law saying that government clients will refuse work from non-GSA Approved companies, in reality most federal clients strongly works exclusively with pre-qualified providers. From the moment your doors are open for your business, our corporate contract acquisition team works alongside you to help you identify and bid on profitable government jobs.

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.
