Military Times Releases Its List of the Best Franchises for Veterans

Military FamilyBecause of their background and proven experience in being disciplined and following a set of instructions, military veterans are one of the most highly sought after demographic groups for franchisors looking for franchisees.


Recently, independent military information outlet Military Times held a 100+ question survey of franchise brands to determine their how accommodating their systems are for service members and veterans.


Using the answers, the publication created a ranking of the 43 best franchises for veterans. Questions in the survey covered franchise culture, the performance of franchise units, the costs associated with franchising, as well as financial and other support offered to veteran and active-duty service members and their families. Information from franchise disclosure documents was also used.


Among the franchises that made the cut, all provide some kind of discount to veterans. In addition, more than 80% of them participate in the International Franchise Association's VetFran program, whose stated goal is to “provide access and opportunities in franchising to our nation’s veterans and their spouses.”
