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.
