After 25 Years Protecting People, This Husband-Wife Team Will Now Protect Homeowners

Michael Lacombe Article

(LEWISTON, MAINE)-For some people, serving others is simply in their blood. Listening to him talk, that certainly seems to be the case for Michael Lacombe. On Dec. 13, the 48-year-old lifelong Lewiston resident, along with his wife, Linda, opened a Pillar To Post Home Inspectors franchise. It is now the second Pillar To Post franchise in Maine. The other is in Windham. Lacombe recently retired from a 25-year career in law enforcement. But when talking about the opportunities afforded in his new career path, true to form, his first thoughts go toward the people he’ll be able to serve. “I just wanted to start my own business to continue giving back to my community and helping others,” Lacombe said. “I enjoyed that aspect of my career in law enforcement and my wife shares the same feelings. We are looking forward to getting started and becoming a trusted business in the community. We’ll still be ‘serving and protecting’ in the community. It will just be people’s homes instead of lives.”

The Lacombe’s franchise will serve homebuyers and sellers throughout Maine, but primarily the central and southern portions of the state. Over a span of 23 years nearly three million families have counted on Pillar To Post to be their trusted advisor when buying or selling a home… Read More.

Millennials in Franchising: Pillar To Post

Tyler Burley Article

Thirty-three is a young age to become a successful business owner, but for Pillar To Post Home Inspectors franchisee Tyler Burley, the timing was perfect to launch his franchise career. “The biggest benefit of being a young owner is you have less financial responsibilities: no kids yet, no crazy bills, and I have the freedom to take risks in the business, and if it fails, I won’t ‘lose the house,’” explains Burley.

Burley’s chosen franchise, Pillar To Post, is a Canadian home inspection franchise, a service most people consider necessary when purchasing a new home. Burley’s background is in construction, but he also has nine years of sales experience. “My sales experience helps me converse with the clients and make sure they’re comfortable during what is a very stressful situation,” he says… Read More.

A Salute on Veterans Day: These Two Vets Give Others Advice About Why Franchising Works for Them

Most everyone knows that attention to detail is a priority in every branch of the military. That’s why Bristol’s Peter Hackett could not have made a more fitting choice for his second career. The 48-year-old Hackett became a Pillar To Post home inspection franchise owner recently after having spent 24 years in the Coast Guard. A keen eye is a requirement for every home inspector and Hackett had plenty of practice over the past two-plus decades.

“In the Coast Guard, I had a strong background in inspections for all types of boats,” Hackett said. “I also moved around a bit and was forced to work on my own homes. I feel this industry is a great fit for me. That’s my advice for veterans looking to get into business for themselves. What did you do in the service that you enjoyed and are good at? Then do your due diligence and check into franchise systems where you can apply all that great knowledge you learned in the military.”

Hackett serves residential and business clients throughout all of Rhode Island… Read More.
