All Veterans are Welcome

Veteran Franchisees

Welcome Vets! First of all, thank you for your service!

Second of all, we have great news for you! There is broad agreement across the Franchisor industry that Vets make great Franchisees!

What's more, many of them offer discounts to Vets and/or other incentives.

The trade organization VETFRAN identifies the following four reasons that a franchise is a good fit for vets:

  • Veterans emerge from service with strong leadership skills and a thorough understanding of teams. Military experience includes leading and motivating people, improving processes, and accomplishing a defined mission. Like the military, successful franchisees and employees accomplish the mission with a team.
  • An established franchise business operates on proven systems and defined procedures. Executing systems and following procedures with precision is emphasized in military training, and leads to success in franchising.
  • Franchises provide training. The military has extensive training and taught very specific skills to be used to carry out very specific tasks. Franchises also have comprehensive training and support built into the franchising process. This means a veteran can enter a completely new field, and are more likely to succeed by following the franchisor's proven business model, and completing the training program.
  • Franchises are team orientated, for which you are part of a larger system that is focused on a collective mission larger than him or herself. You're in business "for" yourself, but not "by" yourself.

According to a study conducted for the International Franchise Association Educational Foundation based on U.S. Census data, one out of seven franchise businesses are owned and operated by veterans of the U.S. military. More than 66,000 veteran-owned franchise businesses provide jobs directly for 815,000 Americans, and generate more than $41 billion in GDP.
