Franchises Offer Start Up Discounts to Veterans
As a way to to honor those men and women who have served in the U.S. military, the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative, known as “VetFran,” was developed to help veterans of the armed forces transition to civilian life and go into business for themselves. VetFran is a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association member-companies that is designed to encourage franchise ownership by offering financial incentives to honorably discharged veterans.
About 400 franchise systems offer some sort of discount to veterans and over 1,300 men and women now own their own businesses through the Vetfran program. You can find a comprehensive list of the companies participating in VetFran on the IFA website and using the website, you can also request information directly from the franchisor.
