InterNACHI member wins Pillar to Post Pinnacle Award for greatest growth.

Frank Ross earns national award for business growth
Depending on what source you look to, you will find that anywhere from 62% to 90% of small businesses will fail within the first 3 years.  So, it’s bucking the trend for a SW Utah small business to post sales growth of 135% in its third year of operation, but that’s exactly what Pillar To Post® Professional Home Inspection of Southwest Utah did in 2005. 
Frank Ross, InterNACHI certified home inspector for Pillar to Post® and CEO of Home Inspection of SW Utah Inc which owns the SW Utah Pillar To Post® franchise was honored recently at the Pillar to Post® Franchise Super Session in Dallas, Texas.  He received the company’s Pinnacle Award for the Greatest Percentage of Growth in a Year for a small franchise territory.
I couldn’t have been more surprised or pleased,” said Ross of receiving the award.  “I knew we were busy, but I just figured everyone else was too. I was unaware that we had captured so much of the market share.”  Pillar To Post® Professional Home Inspection also has the distinction of being the top-rated home inspection franchise for the 5th time in a row in Entrepreneur magazine’s current franchise issue.  “It’s great to be part of a winning team. I think our success is in part due to being a InterNACHI certified home inspector”, Ross adds.
Ross received the honor presented by Dan Steward CEO of Pillar to Post®, Inc., the highest award in the Franchise Growth category.  It is based on the difference in the number of inspections by a franchise from one year to the next.
Pillar To Post® Professional Home Inspection of Southwest Utah located in Enoch, Utah provides residential home inspection services in Iron and Washington counties and surrounding areas.  The company is in its third year of operation in southern Utah.
When asked about his goal for 2006, Ross replied that the value, professionalism and attention to detail that Pillar To Post® offers to all of those involved in the sale of a home, plus a remarkable office manager and Franchisor, and the educational material from InterNACHI all mean that the company will look to exceed the achievement made in 2005.
