According to G.I. Jobs, franchising is a hot target for veterans who want to put their strengths to work on the civilian market as small business owners.
With millions of veterans living across the nation and several hundred thousand transitioning out of the military each year, business ownership is, statistically speaking, an area of growth.
One out of seven businesses is owned by a veteran, with over 3 million total!
Apparently some franchise companies see the value in the skills servicemembers gain during their time in the military, as well. Some companies offer military assistance programs to help vets come up with the initial franchise fee and start-up expenses.
