Franchise Business Review names National Property Inspections a top franchise for veterans

Veterans report quotes NPI president and features a franchisee profile.

National Property Inspections, Inc., is excited to be included in Franchise Business Review’s Veterans & Franchising 2014 special report. The report narrows down the vast array of franchise opportunities available to military veterans by highlighting the 100 franchise companies rated highest in franchisee satisfaction by military veterans who were surveyed. Franchise Business Review’s research looked at survey feedback from more than 3,500 military veterans who are current franchise owners. The national study included more than 350 leading franchise companies and the resulting list of Top 100 franchises was based exclusively on franchisee satisfaction among veteran franchise owners.

Military veterans are 45 percent more likely to take the plunge into entrepreneurship than people with no active-duty military experience according to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy. Hundreds of franchisors have realized this and are offering military veterans incentives and discounts to invest in their franchises as a result. Not all are a good fit for vets, so it is crucial that they perform their due diligence prior to signing a franchise agreement.

National Property Inspections, Inc., parent company of National Property Inspections in the United States and Global Property Inspections in Canada, offers low-cost franchises for less than $35,000 in both countries, with a 10 percent discount on the initial franchise fee for U.S. and Canadian veterans.

“Being a vet is a special thing, and we certainly appreciate their service to our country,” said Roland Bates, president and CEO of National Property Inspections, Inc. “We have many successful vets who are now NPI owners and who have had a great talent for franchising.”

The report also features a profile of National Property Inspections franchise owner Jim Giuffre of Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina. Giuffre joined the U.S. Army in 1977, right out of high school. He later worked as an electrician for residential, commercial and industrial buildings in New York. He wanted to move to North Carolina but he was too young to retire so he decided to become a property inspector, and in April 2006 he purchased an NPI franchise.

“It is the American dream to be able to work for myself and be with my family,” Giuffre said in the report. “I am working hard for my growth, not someone else’s growth. It is actually fun to see how my company has grown. That is a huge sense of pride for me.”

Founded in 1987, National Property Inspections, Inc., is one of the oldest and most respected names in the home and commercial inspection business. The company operates as National Property Inspections in the United States and as Global Property Inspections in Canada.

No matter what type of inspection a client is looking for, NPI offers the services our clients need through our highly trained and experienced home inspectors and commercial building inspectors.
