Pillar To Post Franchise Reviews

The Best Franchise Opportunities in 2017

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 2017—outranking all competitors for the 5th consecutive year.

In previous years, Pillar To Post Home Inspectors has maintained a high ranking on the Franchise 500 List, coming in at #102 in 2016—the best ranking home inspection franchise on the list. This year, when Entrepreneur was ranking the top franchises in 2017, Pillar To Post significantly improved our ranking and we are among the top 100 franchises, ranking at #58!

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. Additionally, just last year we were ranked #22 on Entrepreneur’s 2016 Top Home Based Franchises, an even deeper ranking of our industry.

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 ranking at #256 and Amerispec coming in at #384.

The Definitive Ranking

Entrepreneur’s top 500 franchise ranking is the most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world. Last year alone, over one thousand franchise brands submitted their information to be considered for Entrepreneur’s top 500. This list is something Entrepreneur takes very seriously; through careful research and years of experience they have created a formula for ranking franchises. This formula—which includes more than 150 data points—is based on a number of factors including:

    • System size
    • Growth
    • Financial strength
    • Stability
    • Years franchising
    • Franchisor infrastructure
    • Number of open and operating units

Though these factors have stayed the same for a number of years, Entrepreneur has developed improved ways to measure and analyze them, to ensure that their ranking is accurate. In addition, Entrepreneur continues to add factors that have become increasingly important in today’s economy—like social media presence, which certainly wasn’t relevant 38 years ago, when the ranking began as Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500.

As the Entrepreneur rankings continue to demonstrate, Pillar To Post is among the best franchises to open in 2017, and any year going forward. At Pillar To Post, we continue to improve year over year, ensuring that our franchise opportunity stays at the top. Just add our top 100 ranking to the long list of reasons to start a Pillar To Post franchise.
