Why Pillar To Post is One of the Best Franchises for Veterans
One of Pillar To Post’s primary values is being able to provide strong, stable careers to veterans in the franchising space. We want to give them the opportunity to put the skills they learned in the military to good use in the world of business. With our training and support designed for those without prior business experience, and our special discounts, Pillar To Post is a premier home inspection business opportunity for veterans.
Military Times Rankings
Military Times is a valuable resource for veterans, and the annual Military Times franchise rankings are based on a highly methodical, meticulous information-gathering process. The goal of the rankings is to illuminate the most veteran-friendly franchise opportunities. Military Times invites franchisors to fill out its rigorous survey of over 100 questions, and carefully evaluates the data to ensure that only the best franchisors are included in its published rankings.
The rankings criteria include company culture, investment quality, overall franchising costs, military discounts, and other non-financial supports such as support and resources for franchisees in the National Guard.
According to George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings, “The franchise brands on this list make the extra effort for their veteran and military-connected franchisees. They earned their places on these rankings through their dedication to current and former service members, and their efforts should get the attention of veterans considering their launching a franchise.”
How Pillar To Post Accommodates Veterans
We know that veterans may not exactly be experts in home inspection. But don’t worry, we understand that there’s a learning curve with any new job, and we’re here to support our veteran franchisees. Pillar To Post makes training and support a priority, with the ultimate goal of easing new franchisees into their home inspection business opportunity.
We help equip each new franchisee with the tools and skills they need to succeed. From Discovery Day—when you meet the Pillar To Post team and learn everything about our brand—to your first inspection, we make sure to provide the support and resources you need to make your transition into franchising as smooth as possible.
To further incentivize veterans to sign on with us, we offer a 20% discount on our franchise fee to qualified veterans interested in pursuing a home inspection business opportunity. We also help facilitate several financing options for the investment; for example, we encourage veterans to take advantage of funding from various Veterans’ Administration programs. These programs are designed to help ease their transition into a post-service career, and their resources should be taken advantage of. In 2016, 20% of our new franchisees were veterans, and we’re excited to keep that number strong and growing.
