Veteran’s Franchise Opportunities

According to the International Franchise Association (IFA), one out of every seven franchises in the United States is owned by a veteran. Many franchisors recognize the fact that veterans typically make great franchise owners and salute them by offering special incentives for buying into their system.

If you've served in the military, thank you for your service. And if you find yourself looking to make a change, a veteran-friendly franchise can get you marching towards business ownership today.

This is a market with massive potential, as it is estimated that the home services industry is worth more than 100 billion annually in the U.S.

Retail Franchises

The skills required to operate a successful retail store fit nicely with skills you may have developed in the military. Working together with others, making quick decisions, and handling pressure are all abilities that will benefit a retail franchise owner. The possibilities are endless in this category, so consider picking a retail franchise in a niche that is of personal interest to you.

Explore Opportunities

Fitness Franchises

Fitness and the military go hand in hand. If you are passionate about fitness and would like to share that passion with others, there are plenty of franchise opportunities in this space. Good health is something that never goes out of style, so this market is likely to remain strong well into the future.

IT Franchises

For the veteran who has developed strong computer skills while in the service, an IT franchise would make for a nice transition. Technology plays a bigger role in daily life than ever before, and individuals and businesses alike need help managing all of their tech.
