Pillar To Post was founded in 1993 by Mike Brewer, an entrepreneur with experience in the automotive glass replacement franchise industry. By 2000, Pillar To Post had become the largest home inspection company in North America, catching and passing those companies that had started ten years earlier as well as the numerous others that had been launched around the same time. A good number of our early franchise partners continue with Pillar To Post to this day, including Charles Furlough who began as a franchisee in Raleigh, NC in 1997, and who, in 2008, sold his business and joined the Pillar To Post senior management team and today is SVP, Operations.
In 2003, Mike Brewer sold Pillar To Post to The Franchise Company and departed the business. In 2004, Dan Steward joined the company as President and added the CEO role in 2009.
