Top 5 Franchise Brands for Veterans

asked about 1 year ago

It is widely known that veterans make for some of the best franchise owners. The skills and experience they have developed throughout their time in the military lends veterans towards being great business owners within the franchising industry. In particular, veterans bring to a franchise business an excellent ability to build team, manage and prioritize effectively, lead clearly and they have a great desire to serve others.

Derek Cafferata, CEO and President of franchise experts All State Franchise Finders, works with many veterans who are looking to get into business after their time in the military.

“Some franchises look to actively seek to recruit veterans as franchisees,” says Derek. “It is these franchises that see the value and effectiveness that veterans offer in business, and these franchises have some great incentives specifically with veterans in mind.”

Here are the top 5 franchise brands for veterans:

1. The UPS Store

One of the largest and most respected franchise companies in the United States, The UPS Store has more than 40 years’ experience in franchising with over 5,000 locations throughout the US. While The UPS Store requires significant initial investment, up to $500,000, it is a widely recognised and highly respected brand. For those looking to expand in business, The UPS Store encourages multi-unit investment. Qualified veterans qualify for a $10,000 reduction off the initial franchise fee.

2. Snap-On Tools

Snap-On Tools actively seeks to recruit veterans through offering various financial incentives.

Since The Honor Flight Program started, over 700 veteran franchisees and their families have had the opportunity to take part.
