Of all the markets served by the structural pest control industry, the commercial segment has been the most severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. PMPs serving the restaurant and hospitality industry, in particular, have felt the greatest pain, but no one is immune to the financial fallout from one of the worst public health crises in our nation’s history.
Yet despite the recent downturn in the commercial market, there is still significant opportunity for PMPs interested in servicing food-processing plants, health-care facilities, commercial kitchens, multi-family housing, senior living communities, food warehouse and distribution facilities, and other commercial clients.
If you’re considering entering this important field, or simply would like to learn more about the most effective treatment options and sales techniques for growing your commercial business, you’ll want to attend PCT’s Commercial Pest Control Virtual Conference on Wed., Sept. 23.
