Downtown Jackson Tennessee

Small Business of the Month — Mack Pest Control

Congratulations to Mack Pest Control for being recognized as the Greater Jackson Chamber's Small Business of the Month!   

Founded in the 1940s by Cecil "Mack" McKelvey in Nashville, the business was born from a deep desire to serve the community. Mack's vision extended beyond pest control; it was about creating a lasting impact on the lives of the people he served. Operating initially from Nashville, Mack Pest Control sent a truck into West Tennessee for a week at a time, bridging the gap in pest control services in the area. As the business grew, the first local operator set base in Humboldt, and the legacy continued with the second generation, Lloyd McKelvey, opening a branch in Jackson in the late 1970s. The same dedication, work ethic, and compassion that Mack instilled in the business were passed down, shaping Mack Pest Control into what it is today—a trusted name in pest control deeply rooted in the community.   

What sets Mack Pest Control apart is not just their expertise in pest control but their unwavering commitment to exceptional customer service. "Our best product is our people and the customer service that we seek to provide," says the team at Mack Pest Control. This commitment to service is more than a business strategy; it's a culture of serving, operating with integrity, and friendliness. Every interaction and every service call is an opportunity to deliver exceptional customer service, and the team embraces the culture wholeheartedly.  

Community engagement is at the core of Mack Pest Control's identity. The McKelvey family and their staff are actively involved in various community initiatives. They participate in volunteer opportunities through the Greater Jackson Chamber, serve on local boards and projects, and actively contribute to the community as Rotarians in the Jackson Rotary Club. The staff, encouraged to engage in community events, can be found around their churches, cheering at ball fields, and actively participating in local leadership programs.
