The Pest Control Business Model
Today’s post takes a look inside one of the top pest control business models in America.
Inside The Pest Control Business Model
The Pestmaster business model is based around providing expert integrated pest management (IPM) and vegetation control services to residential, commercial, and government clients in your chosen territory. Each territory includes roughly 500,000 potential customers, and you get exclusive access to them all–no other Pestmaster franchise will sell or advertise within your territory.
Most Pestmaster businesses start as single-person operations that run out of the owner’s home. This sleek home-based model allows us to reduce overhead and start-up costs that would otherwise be required for payroll expenses and commercial property fees.
Our pest control business model pairs low start-up costs with strong profitability. Of course, the pest control industry is inherently strong. According to a recent study by Specialty Consultants, pest control services are expected to generate $10-billion in revenue next year. Demand for all our target services is expanding: bed bug service demand rose 6.6 percent last year; mosquito control services have been among the fastest-growing segments for three years running; and service revenue from controlling rats and mice in commercial and residential accounts recently increased to more than $800 million. Our pest control business model was designed to capitalize on this growing demand while also providing valuable services to local communities around the country.
In addition to offering commercial and residential services, many Pestmaster franchises enjoy lucrative contracts with federal government facilities. If that interests you, we can help: Pestmaster is one of only 11 providers (out of more than 21,000) contracted to offer pest management and related services to the United States Government. Pestmaster offers a robust benefit package that includes a powerful in-house Federal Contracts Department whose sole purpose is to secure local, state, and federal contracts for your business. In 2017, Pestmaster was recognized as the #1 Small Business Enterprise (SBE) in the nation for providing pest control services to the federal government.
