National Property Inspections, Inc., Makes FranchiseGrade.com® Top 500

Graded as a healthy franchise investment opportunity in top 20 percent of U.S. franchise systems

 

Omaha, Neb., Jan. 25, 2016 — National Property Inspections, Inc., parent company of National Property Inspections in the United States and Global Property Inspections in Canada, is pleased to announce that its franchise system has been named one of the Top 500 franchises in the United States. The Franchise Grade® Top 500 is compiled from an analysis and benchmark of 2,387 franchise systems. This database represents the largest number of franchise systems used to determine a top franchise ranking, which makes this a significant accomplishment. It uses FranchiseGrade.com’s proprietary Franchise Performance Index, a data tool used to determine the relative grade of each franchise system. Its inclusion in the Franchise Grade Top 500 defines National Property Inspections as a healthy investment opportunity for prospective franchisees.

 

The FranchiseGrade.com Top 500 list is unique because its methodology is comprehensive and objectively applied, whereas most top franchise lists use a simplistic and limited methodology.

 

“I am very pleased that we have made Franchise Grade’s top franchises list,” said Roland Bates, president of National Property Inspections, Inc. “In many ways, they grade franchises tougher than some other organizations, so it really says something great about NPI that we made this list. I think our inclusion on the Top 500, combined with our outstanding franchisee satisfaction will convince prospective franchisees that we really do offer more than our competitors.”

 

In addition to its ranking as a top franchise, National Property Inspections, Inc., is proud to be a top-ranked franchise based on franchisee satisfaction. In an independent franchisee satisfaction survey conducted by Franchise Business Review, NPI scored 4.1 out of 5.0 stars, demonstrating high franchisee satisfaction and outperforming others in its industry.

National Property Inspections, Inc., Launches Automated Marketing Solution for Franchise Owners

The company will continue to invest in the solution, which is offered to franchisees at no cost.

 

Omaha, Neb., Jan. 19, 2016 — National Property Inspections, Inc., parent company of National Property Inspections in the United States and Global Property Inspections in Canada, is pleased to announce the launch of an integrated, automated suite of marketing tools that will help franchise owners market their businesses more efficiently and effectively. Branded as NPI Hub and GPI Hub, the platform is offered to all franchisees at no cost.

 

To develop the Hub solution, National Property Inspections, Inc., partnered with RenMind, a marketing software and service company based in Omaha, Nebraska. The NPI/GPI Hub is based on the RenMind Wire solution, which is a digital marketing platform. As RenMind builds out the features of RenMind Wire, it will build new features into the Hub solutions for NPI and GPI franchisees.

 

“RenMind designed Wire to specifically fit the needs of franchises like NPI,” said Luke Armstrong, founder and strategic director of RenMind. “Our growing suite of Web-based marketing tools is designed to be simple to use but powerful enough to replace the need for more complex marketing automation services.”

 

The first phase of the Hub solution launched on Jan. 16 and provides an email system that allows users to manage contacts, schedule and send emails to their entire contact list, email branded newsletters and fliers, and more. Other phases of RenMind Wire and NPI/GPI Hub will include new ways to promote and publish content, get customer feedback, streamline the sales process, and collect payments.

 

“Many of our franchise owners have come to a point where they are ready for more sophisticated marketing tools,” said Roland Bates, president of National Property Inspections, Inc. “We approached RenMind to help us design an automated solution that we could build out, and they started working on the NPI/GPI Hub. The Hub will allow franchise owners to use an integrated solution for multiple areas of their marketing. We have heavily invested in the development of the Hub, and we are excited to offer it to all franchisees at no cost. We are the only franchisor in our class that is doing something like this for our franchisees, and we really think it’s something special for them.”

 

Throughout 2016, RenMind will develop the next phases of the NPI Hub and GPI Hub. A new app for payment collection with contract management is slated to launch second quarter, and an integrated website management tool is projected to be ready in late 2016.

Atlanta Franchise Owner Wins NPI’s Franchise of the Year

Starting up at the economic downturn didn’t stop Bob McDonough from striving for success

 

Omaha, Neb., Nov. 20, 2015 — National Property Inspections, Inc., parent company of National Property Inspections in the United States and Global Property Inspections in Canada, is pleased to announce that NPI franchise owner Bob McDonough of Atlanta is the winner of the NPI/GPI 2015 Franchise of the Year Award.

                                                             

“Having started my inspection business with NPI in 2008, at the beginning of the real estate disaster, I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of my team and myself,” McDonough said. “It has been a lot of hard, but very enjoyable, work to build this business from the ground up in such a short period of time. I am especially gratified to have such a large group of highly respected Realtors referring my company to their clients. There is no better feeling in business than getting repeat referrals from people I respect. To be awarded Franchise of the Year in front of over 100 of my peers is icing on the cake!”

 

McDonough operates a multi-inspector company with office staff and also performs inspections himself. In addition to performing home inspections and commercial property inspections, McDonough has differentiated his business by providing mold inspections, radon testing, Phase I Environmental Assessments and winterization services to clients in the Atlanta area.

 

In addition to overall annual sales, number of inspection performed and percentage of sales growth over the previous year, the NPI/GPI Franchise of the Year award is based on several contributing factors:

  • Overall level of professionalism
  • Continuously striving to improve customer service and benefit customers by seeking additional training and increasing the knowledge base
  • Acting as a role model and mentor to other NPI and GPI franchise owners
  • Demonstrated willingness and desire to give back to the community
  • Positive feedback from customers

“The competition was tough,” said Roland Bates, president of NPI/GPI. “Most of our franchisees had a great year. Bob McDonough has been ambitious since he began his franchise in 2008. He was intent on building a larger business rather than a one-man show. He has worked tremendously hard to expand his territory and build a multi-inspector company, and he and his team have performed thousands of inspections this year. Bob and his inspectors always receive rave reviews from their clients. Bob has truly taken his franchise to a whole new level, and we are so extremely proud to have him as one of our franchise owners.”

National Property Inspections Named a Top 100 Franchise for Veterans

NPI finds veterans’ experience, confidence and ethics advantageous to franchising

Omaha, Neb., Nov. 9, 2015 — National Property Inspections, Inc., is pleased to announce its inclusion in Franchise Business Review’s 2015 Top Franchises for Veterans special report. The report highlights the 100 franchise companies rated highest in franchisee satisfaction by military veterans who were surveyed. Franchise Business Review’s research included survey feedback from more than 3,047 military veterans who are current franchise owners. The national study included more than 285 leading franchise companies, and the resulting list of Top 100 franchises is based exclusively on franchisee satisfaction among veteran franchise owners.

According to the International Franchise Association (IFA), more than 5,600 veterans have become franchise owners since November 2011. In fact, 14 percent of all franchises are owned by military veterans. Not all franchises 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 $36,000 in both countries, with a 15 percent discount on the initial franchise fee for U.S. and Canadian military veterans.

“Our motto is ‘Integrity, Honesty and Professionalism,” Bill Erickson, executive vice president at National Property Inspections, Inc., told Franchise Business Review. “We actively recruit veterans because they typically have each of these traits. In addition, we appreciate their can-do attitude, self-confidence and willingness to follow direction.”

Franchise Business Review Names National Property Inspections a Top Franchise for Veterans
Veterans report quotes NPI president and features a franchisee profile

Omaha, Neb., Nov. 10, 2014 — 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.”
