Franchise Business Ownership Can Work
With its top-end training opportunities, solid structure, and a constant need for team leadership and operational excellence, franchising can provide proven paths for veterans to become owners of their own small businesses.
There are over 60,000 veteran-owned franchise businesses that employ 815,000 team members, according to the U.S. Census. IFA’s VetFran program, founded in 1991, has enabled more than 2,100 veterans to become franchise business owners.
If you're a veteran, you’re uniquely suited to run a franchise business operation, (possibly more than most people) because of how you’ve been trained. You were encouraged to follow numerous rules and regulations the moment you entered boot camp. Everything was laid out for you in black and white; there was absolutely no wiggle room.
