Teen Store Developers, the largest developer of independently owned teen stores in the United States announced back in June, 2012 plans to offer Veteran discounts and a Veteran liaison using Veterans Business Resource Center’s Heroes To Home program. This program helps to transition Veterans into self-employment through their skills learned in the military.

Since implementation several Veterans have taken advantage of the program offered through Teen Store Developers. An interview of one Veteran who opened a teen store is available here.

According to statistics gathered about returning Veterans, it can take 6 months for military personnel to transition into a civilian role. Heroes To Home provides assistance to Veterans and their families exploring business opportunities and building a small business clientele. The program also explores alternative employment opportunities when deployment or changed circumstances make employment at previous jobs impossible.

Teen Store Developers is a turn-key development business providing all of the essential tasks of starting a business including financing (up to 100% financing plus operational costs in many instances), site location, lease negotiation, business training, store build-out, a merchandise chain of suppliers, and ongoing business and promotional support. It is a one-time expense which is often fully financed and there are no franchise fees or ongoing fees of any sort. There is a startup fee of $1,500 ($500 for Veterans) and this is fully refundable if the service is unsatisfactory or if the store is not able to be opened for any reason.
