We Are The BrickKicker
Professionally Trained Inspectors
And Several Other Practicing Experts!
In order to provide each of The BrickKicker franchises with distinguished credentials, we have established our own training entity; the BrickKicker University (BKU). Each franchisee is required to go through classroom instruction, lab experience, and field exposure, trained by seasoned industry professionals and accomplished instructors.
The BrickKicker History
The BrickKicker has come a long way as a home inspection company since being founded in 1989. Our dedication to "Excellence in Service Quality" has played a fundamental role in getting us to where we are today. Take a look at our history and milestones to get an idea of what The BrickKicker is, where we come from, and where we plan on going from here!
- Founded in 1989 (Founders – Len Franckowiak and Ron Ewald)The BrickKicker opened its first door in Naperville, IL. Building upon the success of a partnership effort in Field Operations and Marketing/Sales, the entire Chicagoland real estate market quickly became familiar with our brand, synonymous to service quality.
- 1996 National Expansion – FranchisingHaving become a premiere inspection company in Chicagoland, we decided to test our model by initiating an expansion phase into the franchising world. Carrying forward with our basic philosophy of ‘Excellence in Service Quality’ and implementing proven operational standards, The BrickKicker brand was launched nationwide.
- 2019 + Onward and UpwardToday, our office in Naperville, IL still serves as home for our local Chicagoland operation, employing 25, along with being national headquarters for our franchise network of just under 35 operators across 21 states … and we’re preparing to launch again, onward and upward.
