Pest Control Franchises On The Rise
According to a report from the British Pest Control Association (BPCA) and the Metro online, “Britain is infested with cockroaches, rats, mice and bed bugs creeping and crawling around people’s homes.
The highest amount of exterminations took place in Birmingham with the most mice and cockroach sightings being reported by people living in the London borough of Southwark. But the city that has the most pests is Newcastle with 5 per cent of residents having dealt with all of the above and wasps”.
So it might not be a bad idea to be researching new pest franchises. With statistics like that profitable niches should be available in all areas or territories.
Of course company owners sell by territory and it sounds like there can never be too much competition with in some areas each of us never being further than 10 feet from a rat at any one time… it doesn’t bare thinking about!
Thankfully it is an old wives tale and we are hopefully more than 100ft from any rats, although the same cannot be said about spiders or cockroaches though!
Have a look at the Entrepreneur 500 list of top new ones for 2020, not in the top 10 pest ones but ranked 28 from 500 new businesses is one of the best pest franchises.
It is possible to find new ones with low minimum investment of around £20,000 and be confident that these will be profitable options.
When searching for them, take into consideration how many other pest control businesses are already running in the area and even if this area is not in the top 20 worst locations for pests, it is almost guaranteed that there will be plenty little suckers out there running wild. Listed in the top 20 are Newcastle Upon Tyne, London, Liverpool, Swansea, Dundee amongst others.
Top 10 Pest Control Franchises
It is hard to find a list of the top 10 options but there are some that come in the top one hundred of general lists. To find profitable pest franchises then take some time to compare what the owner is offering by way of training and ongoing support and assistance from head office, back of house ordering and invoicing systems, how much will they take as a monthly royalty fee?
If considering them, do they have existing franchisees available to talk to and ask questions about the success of their pest control business?
The interview with the franchisor goes both ways. They want to see if you are committed and motivated to run your own successful business but also, according to your search criteria, the most profitable niches for you should be on your shortlist of the top 10 pest options after comparing what they have to offer to you.
