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.

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