Opening a franchise when you have no experience in the industry can feel daunting, but it’s actually not as hard as you’d think. The home inspection industry is particularly conducive to new franchisees, and Pillar To Post makes your transition as smooth as possible.
It can be easy to feel like you’re under qualified when starting a career in a new industry.

You’ll be relieved to know, however, that success at Pillar To Post isn’t related to your level of experience, but to your drive and your willingness to learn. There are plenty of experts in the home inspection industry that fail because they don’t have the necessary motivation and drive to work hard at their new business. In addition to a basic level of business acumen, and a cursory understanding of sales, marketing, and budget management, franchisees should have the ability to adapt quickly to a proven business model, and not be afraid to apply their already-honed instincts and skills to the home inspection industry.
