You’re bound to have questions, and probably lots of them, and that’s exactly how it should be!
Here are some of the most common questions we get asked, but our Discovery Days are a great chance to ask any other questions you have.
No. It’s great if you do but it’s not a pre-requisite. Our comprehensive training programme gives you all the knowledge and skills you’ll need.
Yes, it is a possibility but we don’t recommend it. Some of our technicians have started in this way, building it up so they can give the ‘day’ job up. Just be aware that as long as you rely on your ‘comfort blanket’ you run the risk of not pushing yourself to really get your franchise going.
The minimum investment is from £16,500 + VAT. You will need a van and some working capital to live off whilst your franchise is growing and starts generating sufficient cash.
On Day 1, as soon as you have completed the training. Whilst you are here at Head office we spend time with you setting up your web pages and social media. But after that, the enquiries should start to roll in! We have had franchisees booking job in during their training!
It is very much up to you. We have some franchisees earning £70k per year and some earning less than £20k. However, following our business plan you should expect to earn between £30-£50k in your first year. Most technicians work on excellent margins and 35% of our current technicians are earning in excess of £50k.
No. You can employ additional technicians when you run out of hours in the day to support your growing business. Several franchisees already have a team and are rapidly growing their businesses, others don’t want to.
Energetic, self-motivated individuals who enjoy the outdoors are typically drawn to this type of business. More important than your background is a real desire to succeed and deliver brilliant customer service.
We like to get to know you, and a great way for you to meet us is at our Discovery Days. Here’s what’ll happen:
“I came across Pestforce on the Internet, I’d always been interested in pest control and the problem solving aspect of it.
Being your own Boss for me is key, you can organise your own day/week, not have to work the 9-5 but have some flexibility. The training with Pestforce has been exceptional, the knowledge of the trainers is without doubt the best I have ever had. The atmosphere in the Head Office is friendly and everything is done to help you with your new career. There is no hard sell which speaks volumes.”
