HomeTeam has carved a niche in pre-sale inspections prior to the home's listing. Home sale transactions can fall through as the result of problems discovered during a buyer's inspection but pre-sale inspections enable necessary repairs to be made ahead of time or adjust the home price accordingly to remain as attractive to buyers.

The opportunities to succeed with HomeTeam home inspection franchise are better today then ever before. When buying a home, it has become standard practice to have a home inspection before the sale closes. In fact, the number of real estate home inspections performed each year is on the rise; almost 90 percent of all homes sold are inspected. Also, many mortgage companies now require a home inspection as a financing requirement.

Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas - Thursday, September 3 at 10AM EST

On Thursday, September 3, John Martin of Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas Franchise Opportunity Meets with Franchise Interviews.

For over 10 years, The Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas has provided a unique combination of theatre and restaurant, showing first-run and independent films while offering in-theatre food and beverage service that includes an extensive menu of freshly prepared appetizers, sandwiches, pizzas and salads as well as a wide selection of hand-crafted beers and great wines. We are the only concept in the growing cinema-eatery category that is franchising.

The typical Alamo Drafthouse Cinema has four to ten screens that resemble traditional movie theatres except rows of seats alternate with bench-style tables. Individual theatre seating ranges from 75 to 320 seats. First-come, first-serve seating begins approximately 45 minutes prior to show time. Customers are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the pre-show entertainment. Instead of a barrage of advertising, a variety of short films are shown that change on a regular basis, some with tie-ins to the feature film.

“We're proud of the fact that we don't show any advertising,” President and CEO John Martin said. “People don't want to pay for a movie and then be bombarded with 15 minutes of dancing candy and fountain drinks.”

Once seated, customers order from the menu and the friendly wait staff brings the food to their seats. Customers can continue to order throughout the movie by writing their requests using the paper and pencils on their table and placing it on the clips attached to the table. Waiters quietly collect and deliver those orders without distracting from the movie. All tabs are closed before the film ends.

For the very first time, listeners can also hear the live show from their cell phones! Just call 347-838-8238.
