Our Values

We’re ready to tackle any problem we might face with openness and honesty. In everything we do, we’re committed to making our customers feel happy, safe, and secure.

We want to make our community a better place, and part of that is being a friendly, helpful neighbor. We support organizations such as Beds Plus, La Grange Highlands Educational Foundation, Western Springs Park District, La Grange Pet Parade and Brookfield Zoo.

We live by the motto “If a thing is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” That means we work diligently, efficiently, and happily.

    ANDY SHOWED UP ON TIME, GAVE A GREAT EXPLANATION OF THE SERVICES, AND MOVED EFFICIENTLY THROUGH AND AROUND THE HOUSE. I LOVED THAT HE HAS A MASTERS DEGREE IN ENTOMOLOGY PLUS ALL THE INDUSTRY CERTS, IT REALLY SEPARATES GRIZZ FROM THE OTHERS I RESEARCHED. WE’RE A FEW WEEKS PAST THE SERVICE AND NO BUGS, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Community Involvement

     

    We believe in playing an active part in our communities. Grizz Pest is active in La Grange, Western Springs, and other communities in the Chicagoland area. Our team participates in many events to raise awareness and funds for different causes.

    why the name “grizz”?

     

    Yes, we love animals, but we loved one particular family dog, who we named Grizzly Bear, very much.  Grizzly, our beloved Chesapeake Bay Retriever, passed away suddenly from cancer in early 2017 after he had been with our family only two short years.  To honor him and keep him alive in our memory, we dedicated our new, family-owned business to him by giving it his namesake.

    Grizz

    GRIZZLY WAS MORE OF A TEDDY BEAR THAN A GRIZZLY BEAR.  THIS BUSINESS IS A WAY TO KEEP HIM BY OUR SIDE.
