May 24, 2012 // Franchising.com // Tampa, FL - Pillar To Post Professional Home Inspection has been ranked in the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2012 Military Friendly Franchise® by G.I. Jobs Magazine for the third year in a row.
The home inspection company currently boasts 125 veteran-owned franchises and honors military veterans year round by offering service members a $1,500 discount off the franchise fee and in-house financing, allowing veterans to use their training and operational skills in a new civilian career.
“By giving military veterans this incentive, we are encouraging development of franchise owners who will bring the unique training they received in the service to benefit the clients of Pillar To Post. The number of veterans in our system shows that this is a great business opportunity for those who have served,” said Dan Steward, president and CEO.
“The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created three years ago out of demand from military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,” said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise all three years places Pillar To Post in this elite group, and is testimony to Pillar To Post’s world class programs and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities.”
Founded in 1994, Pillar To Post is now the largest home inspection company in North America, located in 44 states and 8 Canadian providences, with over 400 franchisees. Pillar To Post added 20 new franchises in 2011. The company expects to more than double that number in 2012; long-term plans include adding 500-600 new franchisees over the next five years. Pillar To Post ranked 215 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2012 Franchise 500 rankings. For more information, please visit www.pillartopostfranchise.com.
