Franchise Business Review

Franchise Business Review has ranked Pillar To Post® within its Top 50 Franchises every year for the past three years!


This is mainly thanks to Pillar To Post®’s commitment to extensive training, and to ongoing support and networking for all our franchisees. FBR has repeatedly found that the most successful franchise brands are those that:

  1. Have developed a proven system for profitability.
  2. Work side by side with their franchisees to help them implement that system in their own businesses.

That’s exactly what Pillar To Post® does.

FBR found that Pillar To Post® ranked highly in almost every area – and the review firm reported that our franchisees score us especially well in the areas of:

  • Work/Life Balance
  • Franchisee Community
  • Core Values

The Best Franchise Opportunities in 2021

Pillar To Post Franchise 500 Award 2021

Why bother doing something if you aren’t going to do it right? Those are words to live by, and at Pillar To Post®, we have taken them to heart. Pillar To Post® received the highest recognition for a home inspection franchise – a top spot on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 List of the best franchise opportunities in 2021 – outranking all competitors for the 9th consecutive year.

Pillar To Post Home Inspectors® has maintained a high ranking on the Franchise 500 List, coming in at #246 overall in 2021 – the best-ranking home inspection franchise on the list. This year, when Entrepreneur was ranking the top franchises in 2021, Pillar To Post® yet again was ranked amongst some of the best franchise systems in the world.

Sweeping the Competition

Ranking among the top 500 franchises is something we are used to at Pillar To Post®. For several years, we have been climbing Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500, ranking high overall and in our category. For the last five years, we have been the highest ranking home inspection franchise, even before we broke into the top 100 franchises on the list overall.

Our competitors just can’t keep up with our outstanding rankings. We are the best-ranking home inspection franchise by a huge stretch on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 List, with WIN not ranking at all.
