Vets get help starting their own businesses
Veterans in need of a job after returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are getting offers of help for an alternative: setting up their own small businesses.
More than 200 companies nationally are providing benefits, discounted fees or special financing to help honorably discharged U.S. military veterans purchase franchises and receive training to operate their own businesses.
Franchising is a wonderful way to go into business for yourself. So many things have already been established for your benefit: branding, marketing, processes, products, systems, etc. Building a business through franchising has been so successful that franchised businesses generate jobs for more than 18 million Americans and account for 10 percent of the private-sector economic output, according to a study recently released by the International Franchise Association Educational Foundation.
If you are convinced that you want to investigate franchising for your next career move, how do you go about finding just the right one?
This is one subject about which much as been written. Everyone has their own version of what you need to do to find that one, perfect concept for you and for your market. At our company, helping people find their ideal franchise opportunity is what we do. As a result, we have worked with thousands of people looking to find the right franchise and realize their dreams.
