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 banner. Read on to learn what to expect once your doors are open for business!
Pestmaster 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 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,” writes Chris Nelson, owner of Pestmaster of Salt Lake City, UT.
Pestmaster 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 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 of Kingston, NY. “And we would certainly not have become the successful contract bidder that we are today.”
In 2001, Pestmaster 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.
