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.

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.

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.
