Top 4 Unsung Pest Control Business Franchise Benefits You Can’t Ignore

Top 4 Unsung Pest Control Business Franchise Benefits You Can't Ignore

We know that the pest control industry is booming, but there’s plenty of other reasons to get excited about this business.

With that in mind, today’s post spotlights the top 4 unsung pest control business franchise benefits. Read on to learn 4 reasons to jump on the Pestmaster opportunity in 2019.

You Can Run A Booming Pest Control Business Franchise Out Of Your Home

Being able to run your business entirely out of the home is a huge benefit in the early goings, as it allows you to completely eliminate the expenses of a brick-and-mortar location. That means no extra rent payments, utilities, security costs, and so on, so you get to keep more of the money you make.

Have you read that Forbes article about a mom that built a pest control business worth $10-million out of her home? You could be next.

Our model works as a home-based businesses because:

  • Outside of some basic booking, marketing, and equipment prep, all of the work is done at the clients’ home;
  • You need very little equipment, which means your business requires very little space;
  • No employees are needed in the early goings, so nobody will need access to your home.

When you’re ready to scale up, we have the resources and proven business plan to do it. Most franchisees expand beyond the home-based model within the first 9 to 18 months of business.

You Can Start A Pest Control Business Franchise With Minimal Equipment

You need very little equipment to start a pest control business franchise. Once you’ve got monitors, a backpack spray unit, uniforms, bait stations, chemicals, and a vehicle, you’re ready to get up and running. And any late model (white) pickup truck or service van with a branded vehicle wrap will do.

This is one of the reasons why our franchisees enjoy such speedy start-up. Typically, their businesses are up and running in 3 to 6 weeks.

Employees Are Completely Optional For Your Pest Control Business Franchise

When you start a pest control business franchise with Pestmaster, no employees are required.

That’s a big deal for two reasons:

  1. You save tons of money that would otherwise be spent paying employee wages and benefits.
  2. You avoid all the headaches and hassle associated with hiring and managing employees–interviews, training, workplace conflict resolution, turnover rates, and so on.

Of course, you’re not restricted to a one-man operation. As you acquire more government contracts and expand your customer base, you may want to scale up your pest control business franchise operations. And when that time comes, our proven system and ongoing coaching will make sure it’s done right.

Most franchisees start off as a single person operation and expand over time, but others choose to start with a sales associate and office support person. Whatever works for you, our flexible model can accommodate.

Pest Control Business Franchise Opportunities Are Highly Affordable

The typical total initial investment for Pestmaster franchisees ranges from $30,000 to $85,000, which is a fraction of what you’d pay to get started in other industries. What’s more, Pestmaster offers a number of discounts for experienced pest control owners and qualified disabled veterans, which you can read more about by visiting our Costs and Criteria page.

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.
