The Bureau of Labor Statistics report 2.5 million veteran-owned firms employ over 5.8 million people.According to Entrepreneur Magazine, the military is trained to focus until they win. The commitment to serving goes beyond pay or reward. It’s about service and loyalty. Companies require hard work and focus if they are to succeed. Focusing on providing a solution or value to the clients is essential for a business to thrive. Veterans who carry this focused attitude and values to the business environment are destined to succeed. Many Franchises give a hand up to veterans by giving them a break on certain items, such as the franchise fee, or by helping with low-interest financing. Why is that so important to franchisors? It is because of the military’s commitment to succeed. Business-minded veterans will work as hard as the project needs and for as long as it takes to accomplish it. Franchisors know that a growing, successful franchise happens only by having dedicated, hard-working, loyal franchisees. The veterans fill all those characteristics, which is a perfect win-win scenario. The franchise and business community can help veterans by thanking them for what they do for our country. The veteran receives an excellent opportunity to own a business and create jobs for others. Finally, the franchise grows with influential dedicated franchisees. We have been very fortunate to have worked with many veterans over the years, assisting them to become entrepreneurs through franchise ownership. It has been and is an amazing experience, and we know why franchisors want to attract and help veterans become business owners. The franchise we will be highlighting today is very active in the IFA (International Franchise Association) VetFran Program; in their Franchise Sales, they give a discount on the Franchise Fee to Veterans. In honor of all those who served, on this upcoming Veteran’s Day we would like to say “Thank You”.
