JC was extremely helpful throughout our process. He provided step by step assistance, explained complex information and offered experienced advice. Even after the purchase is complete, he continues to assist us. We strongly believe he wants all franchises to be successful.
Sebastian & Valerie Perry
Starting a business whether it be from your own concept or buying into an established franchise can be a scary endeavor. More often the successful individuals have a thorough knowledge of the journey they are about to embark upon. As for myself and purchasing a Critter Control franchise, I had no experience in wildlife or pest control. While to most this would seem like a foolish idea, JC Canty on the other hand saw and understood while my background may be quite different there were essential qualities that would lend well to owning a territory in this franchise. He not only explained the business on our first meeting to a point that for the next several months I could find no other franchise that I was more excited about potentially buying into. He also worked with me through the entire processes of getting the adequate funding, proper licensure, and putting me in contact with a multitude of resources to make this dream a reality. If you are considering owning a business in your future no matter your background or experience I would highly recommend speaking to JC to find out if Critter Control may be the right fit for your future.
I owned a Critter Control Franchise in Michigan for 12 years. 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 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.

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 in 1997 and sold my existing franchise.
