Before you invest in a franchise, take the time to do your research. Finding a franchise brand that is a good fit for you is paramount to your success, so take this step seriously. At Pillar To Post, we are very interested in finding franchisees that are the right fit for our company, which is why we recommend our candidates read our home inspection franchise reviews as part of their research. Additionally, we want you to feel confident in your choice.
Some of the questions to ask as you research franchise opportunities include:
- What do I want out of a franchise?
- What skills do I have that work well with franchising?
- What resources set Pillar To Post apart?
- What is the Pillar To Post company culture like?
- How many hours a week do I want to work?
- What kind of work-life balance am I looking for?
- How much am I willing to invest?
- What financing options are available to me?
- How much money can I make?
These are just some of the questions you may want to answer in your research.
Why Read Reviews?
Reviews need to be part of your franchise research, because they can help you answer some of these questions. While the information you get from the franchisor is incredibly valuable, it is from just one perspective. Reading reviews written by past or present franchisees gives you several different points of view, which gives you a more nuanced understanding of the brand.
As you complete your research, a wide range of perspectives will help you determine if the brand is a good fit for you, and that is the most important thing. Use reviews alongside other research—talking to the franchisor, interviewing franchisees, examining the FDD, and reading the website.

Tom and Tracy Capuano
The Capuanos had several reasons for choosing Pillar To Post, including that we are the #1 home inspection franchise in North America. “After meeting the people and learning the system, we were sold,” the couple says. In 2005, the Capuanos were named franchisees of the year, and their Cincinnati, Ohio franchise has continued to grow.
After ten years in construction, Mackey was “burnt out in the corporate world.” He knew he wanted to be in home inspection, but he thought he would open his own business. In the end, he changed his mind. “I am certain that buying a franchise gave me at least a three year head start,” he says, citing Pillar To Post’s “important network of like people, sharing great branding, goals and ideas with each other” as a major reason for joining us.
When he invested in a Pillar To Post franchise in north-central Ohio, Ferguson and his wife were in debt. Now, more than 20 years later, Ferguson’s franchise is flourishing. In 2014, he hit an exciting sales milestone and he can’t wait to keep working toward the next stage, saying, “I’m just thankful to be part of a business that not only gives me that opportunity to strive for more, but the kind of backing that makes the ambition attainable.”
