HomeTeam Inspection Service’s team home inspection service model coupled with the improved housing market is attracting more veterans to HomeTeam, now making up 15% of all HomeTeam franchises. HomeTeam has partnered with VetFran, a program through the International Franchise Association (IFA) to match qualified veterans with participating franchise systems. “Those with a military background have proven to be a great fit for the HomeTeam model. Unlike other home inspection companies, the role of the owner is that of a leader, who can develop teams of inspectors and execute a solid business plan.” says Tony Hill, Franchise Development Consultant for HomeTeam Inspection Service. Army Staff Sergeant Josh Holland has purchased an existing territory in Citrus county Florida after retiring from the military and working for the previous owner for over a year. Earlier in 2015, Army Ranger buddies Chuck Chenoweth and Jerry Jackson are growing the Texas market, where Chenoweth acquired an established business in Austin and Jackson purchased a new territory in San Antonio. And, most recently, retired US Air Force Pilot and retired Homeland Security law enforcement officer Carl Craig is scheduled to open in northern Virginia in October.
When asked why he chose HomeTeam, Jackson remarked: “HomeTeam is a very professional and values based organization with proven franchise success. The quality achieved through their unique team approach is superior and as an aspiring business owner, it was the best choice for me.” With over 26 years of leadership and organizational management experience, most of Jackson’s career was spent in the military intelligence field and special operations support. These new owners join the ranks of several other HomeTeam locations owned by veterans including Brian O’Rear in Louisville, KY, Colin Conroy in Pompano Beach, FL and Dwayne Moore in Prince Georges County, MD.
After thoroughly researching three home inspection franchisors, O’Rear bought a HomeTeam Inspection Service franchise back in 2009. “I realized that the home inspection industry was mostly filled with single-man operations and mom-and-pop style companies and that more professional companies are the wave of the future in this business,” O’Rear said.
HomeTeam is a proud participant in the IFA VetFran program and offers a full 25% off the franchise fee for qualified veterans.
