Why do Military Veterans Make Great Franchise Owners?
Did you know that one out of every seven franchisees in the United States is a veteran?
Most franchisors offer discounts for veterans as an incentive to encourage franchise ownership to those who worked to protect our country.
Here are 3 reasons why military veterans make great franchise owners:
Strong leadership
Military veterans are used to operating in a structured and team-oriented environment. They know how to give orders and delegate. Whether the franchise business requires managing a team of two or 200, veterans know how to lead, stay organized, and function under pressure.
Following systems
Good franchisors lay out the steps for success in advance. The most successful franchisees are those that follow the guidelines set by the franchisor and that utilize all of the resources and support available to them. Veterans are skilled at taking direction and getting things done.
Dedication and perseverance
Any business owner will tell you that no matter what type of product or service you sell, running a business is never easy. A commitment to the brand and a passion for success can make a huge difference in the overall prosperity of the franchise business. For veterans, hard work and commitment are a part of the job description. Determination, dedication, and performance are ingrained in their work ethic.
As thousands of men and women return home from active duty, it is important to acknowledge the skills they have acquired during their military careers – and that will make them successful small business owners.
