2018 Triad Family Business Award Winner
Go-Forth Pest Control won a Triad Family Business Award this year from the Triad Business Journal. Family business isn’t an easy task and this company shows it can run a successful business in the Triad and surrounding areas.
Starting in 1959 with just a family group of employees has grown to over 50 employees and eight office locations. With just one office in High Point, NC starting out, this company has grown to many different cities in North and South Carolina. The current owner is Chase Hazelwood along with his wife Leah. Chase is the son of Suzanne Hazelwood, the daughter of the founding owner Frank Goforth.
Over the years the company has changed its’ name from Go-Forth Pest Management to Go-Forth Pest and Lawn to now, Go-Forth Pest Control. This company has gone through changes over the years but one thing remains the same, quality pest control services to its’ customers.
Chase has been involved with the company a majority of his life and brought his wife in to help him eventually run it. In 2011, Go-Forth joined Lake Norman Pest Control in Mooresville, NC to have a partner company in that area. The family-run atmosphere has been kept over the years to ensure the original idea of a family owned business from Frank Goforth.
They have grown over 500% since 2004 and are constantly trying to get into new cities. Their latest service areas include Wilmington, NC and Columbia, SC. They have recently been named to the 2018 Pest Control Technology Magazine Top 100 List. This list is based on the previous years revenue of all pest control companies in the nation. This is the first time Go-Forth has been named to the list.
They not only have pest control, but have a wildlife and lawn care services department. They also specialize in Christmas decorations around the Triad. They can put up and take down your Christmas decorations for you so you can focus on the holidays.
