I don’t think so. And the reason it won’t happen is InterNACHI. We are simply going to continue to provide more and more competitive advantages to our members than any franchise could ever dream of. They can’t keep up with www.nachi.org/benefits I’ve already uncovered secret documents that show that Pillar to Post is actively steering their new franchisee prospects and owners away from InterNACHI because InterNACHI provides everything Pillar to Post provides times 1,000. In other words, they consider InterNACHI such a threat to their business model that they are willing to harm their own franchise owners rather than have them say “Hey, I joined InterNACHI and they provide all this for free… what are we paying Pillar to Post 11% of our gross for?”
Statistically, and I credit InterNACHI for this, franchises have lost ground every year in our industry for the past 10 or so years. There may be consolidation, but it isn’t the franchises that are succeeding at it.
Whenever I see Dan Steward, CEO of Pillar to Post, I sing this song to him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WO23WBji_Z0 I think he hates me… and I know he hates: www.nachi.org/benefits.htm
Remember, if you are on a healthy 22% profit margin and you are paying Dan Steward 11% of your gross revenue, you are basically giving him HALF of the fruits of your labor. Half of every hour you work goes not to you, not to your wife, not to your future, and not to your kids… but to Dan Steward. And then to top it off, instead of helping you make more money by recommending that you join InterNACHI… he steers you over to one of those “nearly no benefits” associations that charge dues for little in return.
