Pillar to Post reports record year for growth

Despite an unpredictable U.S. economy, Canadian-based Pillar To Post reported a stellar year for growth. In 2012, the company welcomed 50 new franchise owners, including five in December, which more than doubles the 20 franchisees signed in 2011. Looking to open 500 to 600 franchise locations over the next five years, Pillar To Post says it aims to capitalize upon its recent success and add 75 new territories in 2013.

According to a recent survey conducted by the American Society of Home Inspectors, 88 per cent of all homeowners believe that home inspections are a necessity prior to purchasing a home, not a luxury. These findings suggest that home inspection companies such as Pillar To Post are positioned for continued growth and increased demand, the company says.

 “We have big plans for the future and look forward to what 2013 has in store for us,” says Dan Steward, president and CEO of Pillar To Post. Founded in 1994, Pillar To Post is now the largest home inspection company in North America with over 400 franchisees, located in 45 states and eight Canadian provinces. It is based in Toronto.
