Valuing Pest Control Business Opportunities in 2020 and Beyond

The Pest Control Franchise Industry Facts and Figures breakdown on our website explains why so many pest control business opportunities are popping up across the country, but which ones are worth the investment?

Today’s post offers two more critical criteria to use when valuing pest control business opportunities. And don’t forget to check out some of the tips shared previously in the Pestmaster Franchise blog if you found these helpful.

#1. Look For Scalable Pest Control Business Opportunities

Scalability is generally a quality indicator.

If sufficient demand for a service exists, and the business model is designed in a way that is profitable, sustainable, and efficient, the business should scale pretty effortlessly. That’s how it happened for Pestmaster, which went from single small business to national top-100 brand as investors kept buying in.

Accordingly, you should generally look for scalable pest control business opportunities. It means the model is sound (there is value at every level) and the demand is there; it shows the brand is flexible and adaptable and capable of evolving, which will prove critical in 2020 and beyond.

Pestmaster is completely scalable, with options to run your company as a single-operator home-based business or a regional provider with multiple brick-and-mortar locations and a vast team.

Home-based options are popular for start-ups looking to control costs early on, but some choose to start with a brick-and-mortar office from day-one. It’s up to you. Most Pestmaster franchise owners are out of the home within the first 9 to 18 months.

Very little is needed to get started; once you’ve got a vehicle, backpack spray unit, uniform, and pest control materials, you’re basically up and running. But of course, you can choose to outfit an entire team from day-one, add a marketing budget, and set your sales goals higher. The business model is sound and the demand is there, so upping your investment will yield a greater return.

#2. Try To Find Gsa Contract Connections

Though there is no law requiring contractors to hold GSA Schedule in order to conduct business with the federal government, many agencies will only place orders through GSA Schedule contracts. Thus, pest control business opportunities with access to GSA contracts will be able to secure fantastic government work for your business.

Finding GSA contract connections is easier said than done, but it’s worth the effort. No matter what market shifts may occur in 2020 and beyond, this revenue stream will keep flowing!

Pestmaster become one of only 11 providers (out of more than 21,000) contracted to offer pest solutions, vegetation management, and health related/vector control to the United States Government. Entrepreneurs who join our team become part of an exclusive list of vendors pre-qualified to provide these services to big ticket clients.

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.
