  1. Have developed a proven system for profitability.

The Best Franchise Opportunities in 2022

ranked #1

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 – outranking all competitors for 16 of the last 23 years.

Pillar To Post Home Inspectors® has maintained a high ranking on the Franchise 500 List, coming in at #313 overall in 2022 – of more than 3,000 franchise systems in North America. This year, when Entrepreneur was ranking the top franchises in 2022, 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.

The Ultimate Home Inspection 

With our new technologies and business model provide an exceptional home inspection with unique and innovative features that are delivered within a seamless brand experience. “The Ultimate Home Inspection” developed pre-pandemic and utilized when the pandemic struck, the new features further highlight Pillar To Post Home Inspectors’ standing as a visionary in its industry.
