Starting a Pest Control Franchise Business | Steps To Ownership %


Step 1

Contact our franchise department by completing the form.

Fill out the Request More Info form on this page. A franchise development specialist will review with you the franchise opportunity, answer questions and send you a pre-application confidential questionnaire. Our specialist will review with you the next steps.

Step 2

Complete and send back questionnaire.

The pre-application questionnaire will help us with the evaluation process and assist us with preparation of Step 3.

Step 3

Begin the mutual evaluation process.

During this time we will schedule a webinar with one of our dedicated Franchise Development representatives. We will discuss the Pestmaster franchise opportunity including our services and support, and how we can help you realize your dream of business ownership. If you like what you hear, we will send you a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) for your review.

Step 4

Begin to finalize the process.

Final vetting will take place during this step to include completion of the formal franchise application, background and soft credit check. During this stage we will work together to create a naturally agreed upon franchise territory and finalize this process. At this point, if all parties are ready to move forward, you will be invited to visit us at our Pestmaster® Services headquarters in Reno, Nevada where you will meet the team, get a tour, be introduced to our culture and ask any final questions (visit is optional). Make sure you schedule in a couple of extra days so you can experience the great Reno excitement and visit beautiful Lake Tahoe. You may choose to sign the franchise agreement during this period.

Step 5

Attend and complete our franchise training program at our headquarters in Reno.

The training program will be scheduled once all approvals are complete and all fees have been submitted.

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.”
