Moran Family of Brands supports veterans
Moran Family of Brands, one of the nation’s leading automotive repair franchises, counts 14 United States veterans among its 120 total franchisees.
Moran franchise owners have been enlisted in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines branches of the military, as well as the national guard. They have served the country in parts of the last seven decades and were deployed in countries from Vietnam to Iraq.
Moran is a longtime active member of VetFran, an initiative that grants a $5,000 franchise fee discount, mentorship and training programs for any honorably discharged qualified veteran transitioning to civilian life. Experience in the military has proven to be a great fit for franchise ownership.
Members of the military exhibit strong leadership and motivational skills, something that is important for business owners. Like the military, franchise ownership involves following proven systems and defined procedures. This means a veteran can enter a completely new field and be likely to succeed by following the franchisor’s proven business model and completing the training program. Although veterans make up only about 7 percent of the population, they account for 14 percent of all franchisees in the United States.
In addition to helping provide franchise ownership opportunities for veterans, Moran is also actively involved in
attracting veteran employees as service technicians at its stores. The franchise has developed a recruiting process that works with local veteran affairs offices in search of workers with experience in the truck pool, heavy equipment repairs and aircraft repairs. These veterans often make excellent automotive service techs.
As part of this process, Moran notifies veteran offices whenever a local shop is in need of adding a tech position at its location. Many of these veterans are younger and searching for opportunities shortly after returning from service. The program has been mutually beneficial for both Moran’s individual shops and veterans looking to begin a successful career in auto repair.
