Veterans now have more opportunities in franchise ownership with the addition of InXpress (http://inxpressusa.com/news) in to the VetFran family. As a member of VetFran, InXpress offers a significant discount on initial franchise fees to qualified veterans.
“Veterans have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment,” said Dustin Hansen, CEO Americas. “We are thrilled to assist our veterans now as a member of the VetFran family.”
VetFran is an International Franchise Association (IFA) strategic initiative that offers financial incentives, training and mentoring to veterans interested in small business ownership.
In 2011, the (IFA) launched Operation Enduring Opportunity with the goal to recruit 80,000 veterans, wounded warriors and military spouses. A survey was conducted in 2013 that found over 150,000 veterans, military spouses and wounded warriors started careers in franchising since 2011.
“Our veterans deserve the best opportunities in franchise ownership, and we are grateful to finally be able to contribute to this effort,” said Hansen.
Founded by the IFA in 1991, the VetFran program now totals over 600 companies actively hiring and developing veterans as franchise business owners.
