November 29, 2012 // Franchising.com // Tampa, FL - Pillar To Post is on track to reach their five year goal of opening 500-600 franchise locations. The company has trained 45 new franchisees in 2012 to date, not including their upcoming December class. In the month of November, Pillar To Post welcomes four new franchisees spread from the West to East coast.
“We are excited and humbled to have witnessed such growth this year,” said Dan Steward, president and CEO of Pillar To Post. “With almost 50 new franchise locations opened in 2012, we are happy to now serve more communities across the country. Pillar To Post continues to recruit ambitious, qualified franchisees to help us grow our franchise and be of service in their own territories.”
Pillar To Post’s new November franchisees include Andrew Nyveldt in Northampton, Pa., Michael Supik in Pittsburgh, Pa., Tony Tillis serving San Diego, Calif. and Jesse Davies in Maine.
According to McGraw-Hill Construction’s recent Dodge Outlook Report, the construction industry, including residential construction and home inspection, is expected to experience modest growth in 2013. In light of these findings, which state that the industry will experience a 6 percent increase in revenue, the home inspection industry and companies such as Pillar To Post are positioned for major growth as new and existing homeowners seek professional advice before purchasing their homes.
Founded in 1994, Pillar To Post is now the largest home inspection company in North America, located in 45 states and 8 Canadian provinces, with over 400 franchisees. The company expects to open a total of 52 new locations by the end of 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.t
