In my nearly two decades in franchising, I have had great opportunities to meet, work with, and learn from various franchise owners. Many of these successful franchise owners are military veterans and more often than not, are among the most qualified candidates for franchise ownership. This should come as no surprise as their military training instills the necessary combination of discipline, grit, self-sacrifice, and leadership Рall of which are instrumental in running a successful business. 


Veterans contribute significantly to the franchising community. While veterans account for only 7% of the American population, they account for 14% of the franchising network, as franchising has proven to be an ideal structure for veterans to become leaders in the US economy.
