We have worked extremely hard on becoming a quality company delivering a quality service. We are triple ISO accredited, a full member of the British Pest Control Association and hold Safecontractor and CHAS certification. All of this has proved to be very successful in our client growth and retention strategies. The geographical area we work in has become much larger with client activity reaching out to Essex and Hertfordshire and we often get asked if we can cover areas which are even further afield. We can now replicate our service with our standard operating processes, quality accreditations and training programmes to other areas of the UK. Franchising is a perfect solution to support our growth.

Jon Blake, Abate Pest Management, Managing Director

Abate Pest Management are looking to have their first franchise in operation by January 2019 and 15 franchises by the end of the year.
