The information guide aims to provide a comprehensive overview of franchising to military members facing transition. Franchise Direct believes that is important to support the troops who have been in service overseas by providing them with all the information they need to start a great career, following military service, through a franchise opportunity. The information guide details various funding programs targeted at veterans interested in starting their own business through a franchise opportunity, as well as detailing top franchise opportunities available to veterans today.
Many franchises have seen a growing need to provide real career opportunities to veterans, and have met this need by developing targeted veteran franchise programs. Franchise Direct now features a directory of franchises for veterans.
Franchise Direct has also conducted a number of interviews with key figures in the franchise industry and veteran community such as Matthew Shay, President of the International Franchise Association and Drew Myers, CEO of Recruit Military. These videos focus on support for veterans and veteran franchise opportunities.
Sean McGarry, Director of Franchise Direct has welcomed the publication of this online guide to veteran franchises saying "it caters for a need within the veteran community to offer quality information and advice for veterans in order to help them start their own business. Franchise opportunities are particularly suited to veterans, especially during this difficult economic climate, because individuals are going into business for themselves, but with the backing of some of the most reputable and successful brands".
