What To Look For In A Pest Control Franchise

What To Look For In A Pest Control Franchise

As the pest control market booms, so too does the pest control franchise industry. But how do you tell if an opportunity is legitimately good? Start with these 4 quality indicators.

High-quality Training And Support

One of the biggest perks of franchising is getting access to quality training and support, so make sure your pest control franchise delivers. Training should cover technical services, managing a business, resolving employee issues, marketing, business planning, budgeting, and everything else you need. Support services should be available for as long as you’re in business–not just the pre-opening phase!

Pest Control Franchise Owner Satisfaction (AKA High Morale)

Employee morale is defined as the attitude, satisfaction and overall outlook of employees during their association with an organization or a business. Among other things, high morale usually indicates a positive work environment, proper recognition for hard work, and sufficient opportunities for personal growth and advancement within the organization or business.

In the franchising world, we swap out the term employee morale for owner satisfaction. Franchise owners are usually satisfied by effective and efficient business processes, responsive franchise support, consistent franchisor advertising efforts, and brand-exclusive perks. In other words, high owner morale or satisfaction usually indicates a high quality opportunity.

For a great example of owner satisfaction, have a look at the Pestmaster Services Franchise testimonial page. There you’ll find several comments from real Pestmaster Services owners explaining what makes our opportunity so special.

Valuable Contract Connections

Though training, support, and access to proven processes are invaluable, they’re not the only things you ought to expect from your chosen pest control franchise. The best pest control franchises drive sales for their franchisees, not just through local marketing training and national branding efforts, but via exclusive contract connections.

Pestmaster Services is a certified GSA Contract Holder, which makes us part of an elite group of service providers for government facilities and entities across the country and internationally. This gets our owners access to exclusive bidding opportunities that can secure highly profitable contracts for state and federal government clients. Services we provide through our franchisee network include general pest, termite, rodent, bed bug, weed abatement and bird control as well as landscape pests and several inspection options.

Eco-friendly Pest Control Options

In 2020, environmentalism is greatly influencing consumer behaviors. A considerable body of research now shows that Millennial buyers are willing to pay substantially more for eco-friendly and ethical services. If the pest control franchise you’re considering is not equipped to meet modern consumer needs with eco-friendly products and services, start looking elsewhere.

Pestmaster Services proudly offers a range of eco-friendly products and services, including Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Read more about our eco-friendly considerations on the Integrated Pest Management 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.
