Calling U.S. Veterans – Explore Business Ownership Through Franchising!

Ready for Your NEXT Mission?

If you’re a veteran of the U.S. Armed Services or an active duty member preparing to transition back to civilian life, get ready for your NEXT mission as FranNet of Houston has a special event just for you. On Thursday, Nov. 2, we’ll be presenting a free online webinar from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. CST designed to help you take command of your future through franchise ownership. You may think that franchises mean fast food outlets, but there are nearly 4,000 different businesses to choose from – meaning there’s an opportunity out there for everyone.


What is Franchising?

A franchise is basically a license, in which you purchase an established business and have the right to sell their products or services as an independent business owner. In exchange, you’ll be provided with comprehensive training, a proven business model to follow step-by-step, and close-knit, ongoing support. It’s a way to be in business for yourself – but never by yourself, as the franchisor will have your SIX every step of the way.


Why Veterans Make Great Franchise Owners

You may not know why U.S. veterans are a perfect fit for franchise ownership – but consider these
similarities between franchising and your military service:

  • Veterans are easy to train and understand the value of a chain of command
  • Veterans know how to follow systems and rules to get ahead
  • Veterans have a “bigger than self” attitude that fits right in with a network of franchisees
  • Veterans are no strangers to commitment and hard work – even in stressful situations
  • Veterans are natural born leaders who do well as their own boss
  • Veterans always focus on the mission at hand with a results-oriented approach
