One Happy Vet, Thanks To Franchising

We’ve been a staunch advocate of the IFA-backed initiatives to match military veterans with franchise opportunities for some time. Nothing summarizes the potential of these partnerships like a story from the front lines of franchising, so to speak.

Stanley Wright lives in the Elk Grove, California. After retiring from the US military, he started selling insurance. But having learned of the IFA’s VetFran plan, he decided to open his own Cartridge World franchise. He hasn’t looked back since.

“It's been tough and it's been a learning experience from day one,” Stanley told the Sacramento Bee. “The sky's the limit. It took time to build up word of mouth, but it's not as scary now. I expect things to go well."

Stanley chose to buy a Cartridge World franchise because the print business offered a him a 15% discount on the franchise fee since he’s a military veteran.

One interesting element of Stanley’s success is that he was already doing pretty well for himself. He was making more than a $100,000 a year by the time he was 30. But he was yearning for something more. He wanted to spend more time with his family, but he also wanted the freedom to run his own business. He found the perfect match with a franchise.

"I work harder here, but I'm able to coach youth football, go home for lunch," he said. "Things tend to fall in place for me by sheer luck. No one's going to mistake me for a Fortune 500 company, but I'm happy."

Happiness. Perhaps it’s a small thing in this world, but it’s rewarding to see someone achieve it via franchise ownership.
