The number of military veterans that have bought into the idea of becoming their own bosses has been steadily increasing over the past few years. And, some of them have bought franchise businesses.
This is a real win-win; the franchise industry gains more operating franchise units, and our veterans get to take their shot at The American Dream.
It gets even better; there's now factual data that supports the increase in franchises being purchased by veterans.
"The total number of veteran-owned franchise businesses among the most military-friendly franchise companies increased nearly 4,000 or 35 percent to a record 11,469 in the last year, with the average percentage of veteran-owned franchise businesses climbing to 28 percent in military-friendly franchise systems, a spike from 17 percent just a year ago."
