I don't know of anything else I could have done to make as much money as I have with Critter Control. For the last 11 years, my net income was between $150,000 to $200,000 a year. Six of those years I only had one truck on the road – myself, with Bonnie running the office.
I owned a Critter Control Franchise in Michigan for 12 years and it allowed me to earn, save and invest enough money to meet my goal of retiring at the age of 50. I learned that I could run a successful business with hard work and by providing excellent customer service, while doing something that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I was a franchisee for 12 years before selling the business and becoming a corporate employee. My association with Critter Control has always allowed me to make a comfortable living doing something I really enjoy while adding value to the lives of our customers, employees and their families.
I spent 18 years with Critter Control before selling my franchise and I can’t say enough good about the experience. I love the outdoors and wildlife, so the work was very rewarding for me. One major benefit I will always cherish was having my family involved. The business also afforded us the ability to put our son through college. Company meeting’s were very informative and helped me build a successful business. They also provided our family an opportunity to vacation together at exciting destinations. I would encourage anyone to take a good look at this opportunity.
Operating a Critter Control franchise wasn't what I had originally planned on after graduating from Michigan State University. However, as fate would have it, I accepted a position with Critter Control as a Branch Manager in the Fall of 1989 and discovered the work was never routine, and there was always a different challenge waiting for you each and every day. In 1991 I became a Franchise Operator and discovered that it gave me the freedom to set my own schedule and determine my own financial destiny . While there were certainly struggles at times, I always knew I had the support of the corporate office and if I ran into something I had little knowledge about, I could always tap the vast resources of the Critter Control franchise network and come up with the answer I needed. I accepted an invitation to join the Critter Control corporate staff in1997 and sold my existing franchise. The sale of my little franchise allowed me to set aside college funds for my two sons, start a nice individual retirement plan and put a little down on the purchase of a new house. I sometimes wonder what that territory would sell for today , had I put another10-years into it and had fully implemented the operating procedures that Critter Control has in place today.
