In 2014, Outdoor Living Brands launched their Veteran Awareness Campaign in hopes of educating and assisting active, transitioning and retired service men and women who are interested in leading their own team and investing in franchise opportunities throughout the nation. The campaign was spearheaded by Ms. Pucel who stated; “The Veteran Awareness campaign is a very important project for us here Outdoor Living Brands. There are several members of the Outdoor Living Brands family who grew up in military households in addition to our vast group of franchisees who have also served or continue to serve while operating their franchise.”
As a part of the Veteran Awareness Campaign, Outdoor Living Brands continues to work with respected organizations including, Recruit Military, GI Jobs, Vetrepreneur and the IFA to spread the word and visit with veterans across the country. Outdoor Living Brands offers special discounts with the VetFran program for all of their franchise opportunities.
