Know The Licenses You Will Need For The Services You'll Provide

An important step you must take when starting your business is obtaining the correct licenses from the state of Delaware’s Division of Revenue. You may have to acquire multiple licenses depending on the city or county your business is established in, as well as the different services you provide. Fortunately, Truly Nolen Franchise Division provides business planning and ongoing operational support to help guide you through this process, and many others, so you don’t inadvertently overlook any steps to establish pest control services for commercial and residential properties.

How To Create A Functional Business Plan

When thinking about starting a new residential and commercial pest control business, there’s so much to think about and many steps to take. But one of the most important parts of the process is to create a functional business plan. Although it may seem insignificant, a business plan is the blueprint or roadmap to get the process started, and to further develop and grow your business. The good news is that there's no one way to write one, and the process isn't as difficult as you may think. Choose a format that meets your needs. A functional plan encompasses your overall strategy, explaining where, when, and how your goals and objectives will be achieved for every function listed, including your business as a whole. Some key areas your plan should cover include strategies for financing, operations, and marketing. Add more categories as needed.

Not only will a functional business plan help you reach professional milestones, but it can help get you funding with investors who feel confident that they’ll receive a return on investment (ROI).

How To Hire The Right Team

Whether you call them the heartbeat, the backbone, or the engine, a successful business is only as good as its employees. Studies suggest that a satisfied staff in a healthy working environment is more motivated, committed, and productive. Therefore, the most important decision you’ll make when establishing your business is choosing the right people to hire. Review the following reasons why it's important to onboard the right candidates the first time around:

  • They keep the workload balanced among all employees.
  • They save you time and money conducting additional job searches.
  • They can introduce and help implement new ideas that benefit the company.
  • They can make a positive impact on their co-workers, boosting morale. 
  • They can grow with the company, advancing to higher roles.

Making the right hiring decisions contribute significantly to your commercial and residential pest control business’s bottom line, which is vital in its infancy.
