  • Strong proof of concept in multiple markets
  • Clean review of the franchise disclosure document
  • Solid financial performance and a good opportunity for franchisee return on investment

In addition to the news about Holliday’s selection, National Property Inspections, Inc., was named yesterday on CNBC.com’s list of “9 Low-cost Franchises That Can Make You Rich.”
